I’m interested in Senator Charles Sumner Abolitionist, to see if my family might be descendants. My Grandfather’s name was Leo Sumner, born in Tiffin, Ohio 8/16/1903. His father was Carl Sumner born in Baraboo, WI on 3/21/1863.  I found Carl’s Father but was not able to trace any further.
Sumner was my grandmothers sir name.  I want to learn more about my ancestors.

My cousin, Winnifred Combs, married Samuel Sumner.  Their descendants, in turn, married my Hampton cousins.

Nancy Sumner was the 2nd wife of Richard B. Hampton, another cousin, of mine.

The Stacy, Combs, Caudill, Sumner, Hampton, and Proffitt families were all intermixed in Virginia and Eastern Kentucky.

Because my mother's mother ( Mary Beatrice Sumner ) was the great granddaughter of The honorable John Bird Sumner, Archbishop of Canterbury thru his son John Henry Robertson Sumner, Rector of Bishopsbourne and his first wife Antoinette Maria Edwards. Their son John Robert Edwards Sumner didn't follow the families tradition of a religious path but instead chose athletics during his college years. He even was on the Oxford Football team that played in the 1873 Football Championship Game. After graduating with a degree he headed for America in 1882, in 1888 while in Massachusetts he met his future bride Mary Paige Carew. The daughter of a sculptor. After marrying they headed fpr Route Colorado, where John Robert Edward operated a ranch and started a family having two children, one daughter Mary Beatrice Sumner and one son John Robert Carew Sumner. After their education family headed for La Jolla California where they settled. Oh did I forget to mention John Bird Sumner's  wife and the mother of his children was named Marianne Robertson, she was the daughter of Captain George Robertson of the royal Navy and Ann Lewis the daughter of Francis Lewis and Elizabeth Annesley.  Francis Lewis was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, so now I ask you is there any wonder why I'm interested in the Sumner family

Sumner is my maternal lineage. Looking to expand my tree as far back as I can go. Looking to see fun and exciting information along the way. Most of my recent Sumners where from Michigan than traced back to Massachusetts and Connecticut and then further back to England.
