Thanks again for all your help! The two families I'm having the most trouble with are our Bearden's and the
Sumner families. Mary U. Bearden was born abt. 1815 SC.
Was married November 16, 1837 Lumpkin County, Ga. to Archibald McCay. Son of Daniel S. McCay and Rhoda Hill.
My Sumner family is Susannah Sumner born 1815/16, possibly Buncombe County, NC. She married Alexander Grant,
either in Buncombe County, or Rutherford Co., NC They moved into Gilmer County sometime in the 1850's. Don't know
what took them to that area. There was a William Sumner in that area, but no daughter with that name. Maybe he was an
Uncle or relative. They later moved again to Cherokee Co.,
NC. for that is where my gggrandmother Mary M. Grant married John E. Tranthem. Either the lines moved or they moved again into Polk County, TN. For a time Alexander was
a Justice of the Peace and a Farmer. Then in 1870 he was
listed as a Baptist Minister. In the Buncombe County,NC census there was three Sumner Families. William, Richard, and I think John. Richard had a daughter named Susannah but
she married a Whitaker.
Sorry didn't mean to write a book!
