Samuel Church1

ID#1412, b. circa 1815, d. 26 February 1894

David Summers1

ID#1414, b. circa 1797, d. 1866
Father: Rev. Alexander Summers
Mother: Mary Ann Vinagar

Birth date: circa 1797
Birth place: Maryland
Location is supported by the fact that his parents were married in Frederick County, Maryland on 25 February 1797, and that his father is the head of a household residing in Montgomery County, Maryland per the 1800 U.S. Census.2

His first marriage was reportedly to Phoebe Williams on 20 August 1821 in Monongalia County, Virginia. I have not yet officially confirmed this date and location.3

He became a widower when Phoebe died before 1850.3

His second marriage was to Rachel (Reed) VanGilder before 1 June 1850.4,2 Their blended family of Summers and VanGilder children is reflected in the U.S. Federal Census of 1850.2

David obviously died in the spring of 1866 as the will he wrote in April was probated in May.5

1880 U.S. Census, West Virginia, Calhoun County

ID#1415, b. 1 June 1880
As households were enumerated in a census (1880 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers within each enumeration district (ED). Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers within each ED indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

ID#1423, b. 1 June 1870
As households were enumerated in a census (1850 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers. Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual.
