Does anyone know what the service done by a Sumner for the Albees was? Whatever it was, this branch promised to include the name Sumner in every generation thereafter. Lovett Sumner Albee's son George Sumner Albee was the first president of the Oshkosh Normal School, now part of the state system. His son, Robert Sumner Albee did the research everyone is quoting. I believe, just offhand and without looking it up, that the line went Benjamin, James, James, John up to Lovett.
