My great-grandmother was Nancy Jane Sumpter, daughter of William Sumpter born 1802, Burke Co, NC and Jane Rice, born 1808.William and Jane lived and died in the Randolph Co, MO area.I had no info on Nancy Jane Sumpter until I was recently contacted by a descendant of Nancy's brother William Sumpter, born 25 June 1803, Monroe Co, MO.I was raised in Monroe Co, MO but now live in Oregon.The lady who contacted me also lives in Oregon, about two hours away.We will be meeting at some point to share info.She provided me with a list of all of Nancy and William's siblings.Nancy and William were the children of Fielding and Sarah Sumpter.The names she provided are as follows:1.John Sumpter, born 1828, married to Susan Duncan, daughter of David and Elizabeth Finney Duncan (these Duncan's married into my Freels family line also).2.Tyre/Tyra Sumter, born June 1832, married Marinda Terry of Schuyler Co, Mo and moved to Olympia, WA.3. Nancy Jane Sumpter (this is my line), born 1841, married Roger Edward Embree, and lived and died in the Holliday, Monroe Co, MO area.4.Sarah, born Dec 1842, married F.M. Forney in Randolph Co, MO.5.Amanda (twin to Sarah), born Dec 1842, married to John Whitlow of Schyuler Co, MO.6. William Sumpter, born June 1843, Monroe Co, Mo, married to Mariah Todd in Pittsfield, Pike Co, IL.7.James Sumpter, born 1845, Monroe Co, MO.8.Fielding, born July 1846, Monroe Co, MO. 9.Western, born 1848, Monroe Co, MO, married to Rachel Chambers of Schuyler Co, MO.10.Lawson, born 1849, MO.
She shares with me that Fielding was the son of Capt. William Sumpter, and the brother to General Thomas Sumter, whom Ft Sumter was named for.Looking at the posted messages, it appears many people are sharing info.I would like to share the info I have on the Embree line if anyone is interested.Would also like info on Nancy's sibilings and parents if possible.
Some of the info on the Internet geneaology sites is conflicting, makes it confusing to know which info is correct to use.Any ideas?
For those researchers in the Randolph, Monroe County, MO areas, I will be there the last two weeks of June for an upcoming Freels, Embree, Stevens, Whitaker, Darst, Duncan reunion.If anyone would like to meet and share info just let me know and I can contact you when I am there.My brother married the granddaughter of a Sumpter.Maybe his cousin!!!
Thanks for any help.
