I have just discovered that "Summie" first name was William. He would have been born in 1845, If I remember correctly. He also served in the Civil War. The info posted below was taken from the records complied in a series of books on the Soldiers who served in The Civil War from North Carolina. I can't remember the exact title at this time. But here is the information:
Williams S. Allen Born in Cleveland County where he resided as a farmer prior to enlisting in Cleveland County at age 17, March 18, 1862, as a substitute.
