Does anyone know where the community of Sumner was located? All I know is that it was near Redbird. Probably on river road turn just past Steely Cemetery. My 4th G-Grandpa, Mark Sumner b.1795 d. 1869 was appointed postmaster of the Sumner Post Office. He owned land around the mouth of Archers Creek which included, or so I was told, where Concord Church is now. I was told either he, or his son James B. Sumner donated the land for the church and cemetery. If anyone knows anything, please let me know. Thank you!
