Surnames: Summers, Holt, Clapp, Morrow, Sellars, McDowell, Gant
I am currently researching my family tree which begins with Rueben & Martha Jane Summers. They had many children and with these children, our tree branches to many other surnames. I have found connections to so many black people in Alamance County that I would like to ask anyone who may know one of these surnames or a connection to contact me.

We are looking for the following names: Summers, Holt, Clapp, Morrow, Sellars, McDowell, Gant, & Chavis.

Sellars: Ikey, Arthur, Walter, Edgar, Ernestine, Bessie
Morrow: Harry, Janice, Ethel, Tanja, Donna, Jerry
McDowell: Anna, John, Roy, Lawrence Otis, Maggie

Any help is greatly appreciated. Please email me at uncommonroots@gmail.com

Surnames: Clapp
The Clapp surname belongs to a a family of German immigrants who settled in eastern Guilford County. They were involed in the founding of a well known German Reformed Church that started in 1759. Its current location is just west of the Guilford County/Alalmance County line (in Whitsett)

If you Google "Old Brick Church" and "Guilford County, NC" at the same time you can find all sorts of info on it. I am descended from the Clapp family, but have not researched back into Guilford County era, yet. The family is pretty well documented back to the 1600's
