Excerpt from Record of the Descendants of William Sumner, of Dorchester, Mass., 1636
I began long ago to keep all items relating to the family old and new, and in 1875 took up in earnest the work of perfecting the Gene alogy. I sent circulars to all of the name whose addresse... s I obtained, and have since then sent many more. I have found the various mem bers of the family generally ready and able to help, but am sorry to say that from some I have in vain sought information. For aid on many points and for facts relating to many branches I am especially indebted to Dr. Charles F. Sumner of Bolton, Conn., and Edward Sumner of Dedham, who have sent me numerous letters during the four years of my labors. Many others have aided me greatly in the record of their own lines, of whom I will only name Rev. John B. Sumner of Binghamton, N. Y., John A. Sumner of Middletown, Conn., Nor man Sumner of Atlanta, Ebenezer Sumner of Upper Jay, N. Y., John Sumner of Newburyport, Alfred H. Sumner of Boston, Miss Harriet H. Sumner of Foxboro', Charles A. Sumner of Burlington, Vt., William P. Sumner of Calumet, Mich., Alonzo H. Sumner of Ilion, N. Y., Andrew Sumner of Milford, Earl W. Sumner of Darien, N. Y., Austin Sumner of Boston, and Mansfield Sumner of iviiddlebury, Ohio. The portrait of Rev. Dr. Joseph Sumner is pre sented by a descendant, George Sumner of Worcester.
