2). 1735328.ged BeamandWilson.FTW Summers Church Posted by Doug Summers on Tue, 19 Dec 2000 Surname Summers, Church, Elliot Was wondering if anyone might have info on Rachel Elliott Church that married Thomas Summer s in Calhoun Co. around 1900 1903. Need parents name, where born etc. Rachel Apr.21,1876 Jan .23,1923 Thomas Nov.24,1872 Mar.5,1958 . I ve been to Rachel s grave in St. Paul cem. and Tom s in Mt. Zion. It looks like Rachel is b uried by her 1st husband, George Church. Rachel s children were Lewis 1892 1954 , Andrew Jack son 1894 1973 Nellie 1897 1982 I m not sure if there are any more for her. Rachel and Toms children were Fred 1905 1957 Thomas 1903 1979 my gfather, and I believe Jenny. I have a P earl too, but don t know if she was a Church or Summers. I also believe Rachel s parents wer e Anderson and Mary Elliot. The only facts I have come from my gmothers Esther Hanby Summers writing in a book my Dad inherited when she died in 1999. my Dad passed this book on to me t his past year. Any info would be appreciated. I can also share what little I do have. e mail Sandy, Glad to hear from you. Where you located? I live in NC and do nt get the chance to go back ho me to Wood County very often. But to answer your question......... Yes, Nellie M. Church is the same one. Rachael Elliott Church Summers Wright, is the d o And erson and Mary Elliott. She first married a George Church somewhere around 1890 1892. They ha d 5 children Lewis Church 1892 1954 , Andrew Jackson Church 18941973 , Churl Elizabeth Ch urch, Nellie Mae Church 1897 1982 , Pearl Church 1901 1979 . I will ask my Dad to see if J ennie is still alive. He hasn t said anything about it lately. He lives in Parkersburg. The l ast I knew was that she was in a rest home and didn t know anyone. Rachael then married Thomas Franklin Summers Sr. 1872 1958 . They had 3 children Thomas Fr ank Summers 1903 1979 , my grandfather, Fred Summers 1905 1957 , Jennie Summers. Rachael divorced Thomas Summers and married a CloydDwight Wright. They had no children. I do have a little more info on the Summers that I am putting together. it s been a slow pro cess, but I guess I am getting there......... Please keep in touch, Best Wishes......Doug Original Message From Sandy Gifford To Sent Wednesday, May 23, 2001 10 22 AM Subject Summers Church Hi Doug, I don t think that I have written to you before. I just ran across your inquiry on the Calho un Co. page back in Dec., 2000. Could you tell me if Nellie May Church is a dau. of Rachel and Thomas that you mention in th e inquiry? This is what I found recently from the generous people at the Calhoun Co., page This list contains the figures of the 1934 real estate appraisement for property owners of Ca lhoun County, West Virginia. The figures are official information and copied directly from re cords in the Court House. The only change is that property owners in each district have bee n arranged alphabetically.
