Hi, I'm trying to reconcile various conflicting bits of information I have about this couple and their children. I'd sure appreciate hearing from you if you have any answers or leads to these questions.
1) One of my main sources says that H.M and Martha's third child was William Pacal Summers, b Nov 1860, but another says that their third child was Sarah Ellen (called "Ellen") Summers, b March 1859. I am particularly interested in SARAH ELLEN SUMMERS, as she was my g-grandmother. The source that includes Sarah Ellen Summers as third child shows William Pascal Summers as fourth child. Also, note the difference in spelling in his middle name: Pacal and Pascal. Does anyone know which is correct?
2) The next puzzling issue is that both my main sources show H.M. and Martha's next children, Joseph T. Summers and Chester Howard Summers, with highly unlikely birth dates. Chester has a birth date of March 1867 and Joseph has a birth date of May 1867. Can anyone shed some light on this?
3) The next son, Henry Summers, has two different birth dates: 1873 and Sept 1870.
4) Their last child, a son, is variously called Ames Summers and Amos Reid Summers.
Again, I really appreciate any help you can give me!
