The following dates are recollections and may deviate slightly from the records.: 1. Thomas Summerell b ca 1720 Craven or Pitt Co NC, 2. Jacob Summerell Sr b. ca 1742, 3 Jacob Summerlin Jr b ca 1760, 4.Thomas B Summerlin 1797 Duplin NC., d Morehouse Parrish Louisana 1860 of intemperence 5. A.Spain Summerlin b ca 1817.The "Spain" family of Pitt Co NC were neigbors of the Thomas summerlin family in NC. Some people have said that A Spain Summerlin came out of TN; however I have never seen a record indicating same. Most of us researching his father believe that Thomas B Summerlin spent time in GA with the Amason family prior to moving to Montgomery Co Alabama in the late 1820's.There is an old history text that details the court proceedings carried out to divide up A Spain's land grants in Texas.
