Hello Noreen,

Are you related to Mary Hampton Dakers b. 1876? My great-grandfather was her older brother David Smith Dakers born 1874. I have a portion of the Dakers family tree dating all the way back to the latter 1600s thanks to cousins my brother and I just discovered recently in Edinburgh. Please feel free to e-mail me and lets compare notes.

I am Mary Hampton Dakers Mitchell's granddaughter and I live in northern California,USA. Mary, her sisters Martha Dakers Livingston and Agnes Hunter Dakers McKay were all part of my youth in Chicago,Illinois, where they all settled with their families in the early 1900's...I grew up among them and have very fond memories of these strong ladies...Martha's granddaughter Peggy Lee Noll and I are among the few remaining, I'll email you additional info.Thanks so much for taking time to respond..

Hello Noreen, my cousin (too complicated to figure out the distant removes bit...)

This is so exciting to discover more family! I too am in California, in the Central San Joaquin Valley. My father was the only child of William Murray Dakers (b.1901), grandson of David Smith Dakers (brother to your grandmother). Dad came to the U.S. in 1953 from Scotland where he met my mother who was attending Fresno State at the time, fell in love, and settled in this general area. I can't wait to tell my brother about you and Peggy Lee Noll!

Hi there,

I am a Dakers, although have married three years ago but am still very much a Dakers. There are not many left in my family now and we have always tried to trace our origins.

My grandmother Dorothy sadly passed away last year. My father (Michael) and brother (Oliver) both still very much alive and well have traced ancestors to Hawick in Scotland where there was a well respected pastor under the name of Dakers.

That's all we know. If we can help anyone in any way we will be happy to do so.

All the best,

Lorna
