About Our Family Research
Although I grew up in Huntington,WV., my family's roots as far back as my great-grandfather are in rural Lincoln county, WV. My great-grandfather (Wiley Summers)was a bit of a wanderer in his youth and traveled in the west, or so the family stories go. After settling in Lincoln county, my grandfather Frank James Summers was born and eventually married Clara Brock and raised his family. My dad, Charles Golden Summers (name after his uncle Golden Brock) was born. After deciding coal mining was not for him he moved to Huntington where in the course of time my two brothers and I were born. My mother's family has raised in Logan county W.Va., and she met my father after moving to the Huntington area. She has been able to trace her family thru her mother (Carey) to England.
