Thanks so much! You are kind to go to the trouble. You indicated that James Riley fought in the Civil War. I found a James R. Sumner who fought in a Kentucky regiment out of Owensboro, KY. Do you believe this to be the same?

And, I'll understand completely if you don't want to tell a complete stranger this, but where do you live? I only ask to see if it would be a possibility to meet you some day and possibly take a look at the picture (if you cannot scan and send digitally).

I'll give you a bit of background on myself. I am married and have three children ages 4 and under. My husband and I both teach high school. I teach Spanish; he teaches biology. We live in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.

I cannot remember if I already gave you this info, but the following is how I am related to James Riley:
James Riley Sumner
William M. Sumner (d. Muhl. County)
George Washington Sumner, Sr. (d. Muhl. Co)
George Washington Sumner, Jr. (d. Muhl. Co)
Mitchell Sumner
Again, I appreciate this information very much. I am the only one left in my family who I believe will do ancestry over the Sumner Clan. Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
