Hi Jonathan, My name is Wanda Matthews Flowers. I was born in Henderson Co., N.C. and related to the Summeys'. My great grandmother was Martha Summey. She was the daughter of Benjamin David Summey (Davis) and Sarah Elizabeth Bane. Martha had a sister that married a George Summey. There is a Family Reunion held every August the first or second Sunday, the Pink Beds in Transyvania Co.,N.C. I remember when I was little, there was a Summey family that lived in Gaston Co., N.C., but can't remember their names. My great grandmother married (1) Perry Shipman (2) John Brackett (3) George Beddingfield. Maybe you might ask your grandfather a them he might know of them. If he does let me know. Good luck with this. I've been working on all sides of my family history since 1993.
