I have the book "A Sesquicentennial History - Mount Tabor Lutheran Church: 1839-1989. It has a cemetery listing if anyone needs a look-up.

There aren't any GRASS people listed in the book. The last time I visited the Mt. Tabor cemetery, I don't think I saw any by that name. Can you tell me who you are looking for - I can check other cemeteries in the Middlebrook area for you. I live in that area.

Are there any SUMMERS family members in the book?

Thanks for your offer. Is the Mt. Tabor Church near Christian's Creek? I'm looking for burials in a German church (or private property) for the name GRASS before 1835.

No I don't think Mt. Tabor is near Christian's Creek. I will look through the Augusta Co. cemetery listing for that name.

You might throw them at me. To the best of my knowledge, all of my other SUMMERS ancestors were buried at St. Johns Cem., just down the road from Mt. Tabor.

I noticed an interesting phenomenon in the data you sent. Apparently, the five girls were all daughters of David and Julia (PALMER) SUMMERS (David's 2nd spouse), all of the girls died in their childhood, and three of them died within two weeks of each other in 1847. I wonder if there was some type of epidemic in 1847, or a house fire, or whatever. What a sad loss for the family!

David SUMMERS was the older brother of my ggg-gfather Jacob SUMMERS, who later migrated to Floyd Co., IN. They were sons of John and Elizabeth SUMMERS (1746-1803),and grandsons of the genealogically famous Johann Georg SUMMERS, about whom there is much confusion and disagreement.
