Notes for Jethro B Sumner
From notes by Betty Parrish:
Buried in Jordon-Sumner Cemetery on Oconee Road outside of Tennille, GA,
south of Sandersville in Washington County.
The first Washington County record of the surname, Sumner, is found in
1830. One is the marriage record of Jethro Sumner and Jinsey Phillips.
Though undocumented, it is believed that Jethro Sumner is a descendant of
William Sumner who came to Virginia from England before 1668 (from
Carolyn Moye Zeigler of Wrens, GA-undated narrative found at the
Washington Co Genealogy Society in Sandersville, GA).
