Most of this research was done by my aunt.A look at the map shows Flushing OH (Belmont Co) and Wheeling WV (Marshall Co) close to the Ohio River on opposite sides, Howard died on a ship.So I wonder if there is a river connection for the 3 of them.
Emma brought 3 Sumner children to the marriage with John McKee, 2 sons and a dau.
