Hi Patricia,

You seem to have alot of information on the Summers of Cannon, TN. I have been working on this line of Summers for a friend of mine. She wanted to give something to her grandchildren. Some information she has given me I believe may not be correct I thought maybe you could help.

They have James Howard Summers b. abt 1830 as a son of James B. Summers. I believe he may be the son of Robert Summers & Elizabeth Summers. The only James I could find to fit the time frame was James C. Summers b. 1835/36 living with Robert & Elizabeth Summers in Rutherford County TN in 1950. And living with Elizabeth in 1860 Cannon TN. Do you have any informatin on this Robert and Elizabeth and their children.

Do you know if this James B. Summers had a son James born around that time.

Would appreciate your help. Thanks!

Brenda

Hello,

I am a Summers descendant; our first known is John Summers immigrated to Maryland (from England) in 1674 m. Rebecca (Dent?).

Descendants began leaving Maryland about the end of Rev War; some went to Iredell Co, NC and others on to SC. My branch migrated to Monongalia Co (actually, all these migrators were siblings).

William Summers (1726-abt 1800)m. Mary Wheat migrated to Iredell Co, NC. Some near descendants migrated to TN, (Humphreys Co, and others). I've have just begun to concentrate on the TN Summers and wonder if any of those mentioned in these posts are related?

Will appreciate sharing any info with interested researchers. You can view my gedcom online at:
