I've been in search for my great grandfathers dad for a while now. My great grandfather's name was Jesse Samuel Williams, His mother was Maude "Moddie" Williams which I have been able to locate information and pictures of. But I have got stuck in search of his father "John Summerlin", Moddie and Summerlin never married and had 3 children together from what I have been able to find out. Moddie had another child but from what I'm finding out the father of that child carried the last name of Frost as he come thru the area with work when they met. They were tennant farmers in the Glisson area and looks as though they stayed pretty close to that area so maybe someone has this information. I've done some research with the 1900 Census and Maude and Jesse Samuel lived together then and there was a Summerlin family that was there neighbor but wasn't able to find a John on that one. I took that Summerlin family and went back to the 1880 and 1870 Census and the same family on both of them have a John listed so I'm thinking I might be on the right track with it but am running out of information on it. Looks as though his birthdate would be around 1870 give or take a year and I have no idea of when he passed away. I have talked to people that said they knew the man so they knew he existed but I haven't been able to get past him on my tree. Any information please feel free to Email me or if I can send the information I have to someone that might be able to use it in there search for Mr. Summerlin.
