Mary SUMMERS, (c1793, PA)-(c1860,Grundy Co, IL)
I am looking for Mary's parents and siblings. Ancestry dot com "fact" sheet for Mary is attached. Sadly, I am unsure of all of the documents (that they are my Mary) before 1830. One of my cousins gave me this tip (about the 1810 census and in general): "All of the early Foster males married white women. Maryland received the largest share of convict women from England. Many married blacks who worked with them. Prior Foster (Mary's brother-in-law brother) was married 3 times. One of them was a Mary Jane. George and Prior were both alive in 1810 but too young to have children." My question now is "How do I find out who Mary's parents and siblings were?" Thank you!
