Ihave been looking for parents of Dr. Seward Sumner B.1807 Ky. r. perry Ind. d. Iowa
Elizabeth Cummins b. 1809 Ky.
(her mother Was Elizabeth Betsy Lanman )
they, Seward and Elizabeth had several children (8 or 9).
They would be my ggg-grandparents,
and may have moved to Iowa in later years,
as the union moved families westward in th civil wars.My grand father was Grason (grayson?)Sumner born Iowa 1861 in Unionville,at the out break of the civil war.
He married Sarah Ella VanDover B. Ind.,or
Va.Her mother was julia ann reynolds .
grason was the son of Luther G. sumner
b. 1830 Spencer, ind. r. Iowa d. 1863? Iowa.
he married 1. hulda Vanderver (according to LDS records)
there were four children:
Grason,John ,Isabelle,Franklin Seward.
one Son :Luther C.
