Hi, Earl. I have some information regarding your Alfred Summer of MS who was married to Martha Jane Boyd. I don't know how much you already have, so I will share all that I have. He was born in or around Newberry, SC. His parents were John Nicholas Summer (1783-1868) and Elizabeth Counts (1786-1847). His siblings were Jacob (1817-1880), Alfred, John Nicholas, Elizabeth Harriet and Susannah (1807-1881). Alfred is my 2nd cousin, 3 times removed. I have the following which was copied exactly from early records of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Newberry, SC: "Alfred, son of Nicholas Summer and wife, Elizabeth, born 10 Mar 1880. Sponsors Abraham Chapman and wife, Peggy." Another of my sources says that Alfred and his family moved to Mississippi. I do not have any other information or names of children and I would love to have any information you would care to share. I have lots of information about the Summer family. Let me know if I can help you further.
