Julian Anderson also communicated with me about your inquiry. Below is
an excerpt from my file "Immigrants." It shows a John Robert Edwards
Sumner born 1850, but there are no details about his marriage and
children. If you confirm that this is your grandfather, please provide
whatever details you have about the descendants named Sumner and those
they married. I'll be glad to respond after that with those inserted and
the line back to William Sumner and Mary Medicott, who married about
1600. Also as you research this, maybe you can clarify details about
Rev. Robert Sumner and his wife.
