Welcome to my blog where the history of Somers Township is told in a record of the lives of its early settlers. This blog is about people, who with great enterprise and industry, settled on land that was prairie and wilderness. With persistence, they built a community from scratch. Here you find tid bits on pioneers, farmhouses, barns, churches, agriculture and farming, schools and much more! Lots and lots of photos.
Many Somers pioneers are listed on the Oakwood Cemetery blog. Don't miss it!
