Austin says Thomas, Sr., was born between 1735-40 and died between June 1804 (tax list) and 29 July 1805 (heirs' deed A 138). The names of his children are from the deed. Austin thinks there were probably other children/daughters.

This database contains updated information since my book THE SUMMERS FAMILY OF CALIFORNIA (Georgia Kinney Bopp, May 1994). However, the book contains information not included here, such as narratives, timelines, and details about certain sources. Copies of the book were donated to the LDS and other libraries; the book is on LDS film No. 1750653, item no. 19. This book is also the unidentified source of information submitted by a Summers descendant (Deborah A. Torrez) to the LDS Ancestral File database (now online) and that became the source of entries in the LDS I.G.I. database (also online).
"I," "my," "me," etc. refer to Georgia Kinney Bopp. See GKBopp Website: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gkbopp/
