George Summers, progenitor of one of the Summers Families in America, was born in Germany shortly after the year 1690, and arrived in this country on the 22nd ot September in the year of 1752, landing at Philadelphia on the ship “Brothers, in charge of Captain Wm. Muir. He was married to Elizabeth . They had six sons and one daughter, namely Philip, Henry, John, Martin, George, Peter and Margaretha Elizabeth. Two of them, Philip and Henry, however, did not come over with their father but arrived two years later, September 30th, 1754 on the ship “Edinburg also landing at Philadelphia.
The purpose of this book is to give a brief outline of the History of the Family for the first five generations and until a complete history can be published. The names of the sixth generation, however, have been given, but merely as a means of identification.
The book practically explains for itself, in the manner of presenting the data for only a few generations. The numbers in parenthesis back of the name always designate the generation in succession, when an “a” or an “r” or a “dd” appears in front of the name it always means the fourth generation and when a number, as 1, 25 or 210, appears in front, it is always of the fifth generation.
It will be noticed that the material has been presented in the manner of LINES. This is after the third generation. If studied, one will easily learn to what line or branch he belongs to, when attending our Reunions.
