Thanks Tracy. I will look into this. We have corresponded before, right? I am clueless as to any parents and/or siblings for my Samuel Sumner b. abt. 1786 NC. I do not know his birth county in NC, so have not done well with an NC Archives search. My Samuel's oldest son was Joseph John Sumner, but the trees online with that patriarch seem to be unrelated. BTW, that link does not seem to work.
