Jesse Winfield Summers
Previously unidentified!

JESSE WINFIELD SUMMERS
(a later photo)
b. February 1838 in Ripley Co., MO
d. 1916 in Darien, Dent Co., MO
He was the son
of
John Adam Summers
and
Virginia Carolina Jane Baumgarter

John Adam b. 1805 emigrated from Morgan Co., TN with most of the rest of his family including his mother when he and his brothers returned to Morgan County after a scouting expedition into Missouri to get the lay of the land.

John Adam’s father was
John Henry Summers
b. 1780 in Lexington, Newberry Co., S.C.
~~
John Henry died in Morgan County in 1840, while his sons were away in MO.

 

JAMES WINFIELD SUMMERS(a later photo above)
Jesse died in 1916.  He was being operated on for a hernia.  They were ready to close the incision and the table collapsed causing his death.
(Source: Ozark Heritage 1994, Pg 365)
Identification of this photo was made by
ADA FLORENCE COX SMITH 
of Missouri. She is at present 106 years old!
A granddaughter of Ada’s by the name of Barbara is one of my Summers contacts in Missouri.  She sent me the picture of the Older Jesse and when my husbandand I saw it we were pretty sure it was the same man in our ‘Unknown’ picture.
I e-mailed a copy of the ‘Unknown’ to Barbara, and she showed it to her Grandmother, Ada and she confirmed that it was Jesse Winfield.
Jesse Winfield was Ada’s Gr. Uncle.  She was 22 when Jesse died, so she remembers him very well. I’m attaching a picture of Ada as a young woman as well.  She remains relatively healthy at 106, and still has a sharp mind and many stories to tell about her family history.  How fortunate we are to still have her with us.

Obituaty of Ada Smith:
“Ada Florence Smith was born October 10, 1894 in Rector, MO to George Washington Cox and Rebecca (Summers) Cox.   She was the youngest of nine children.   She passed away at her home in Hartshorn, MO on October 21, 2001 at the age of 107 years.”
 Another interesting note:
The Summers Brothers that left Morgan Co, TN
established the small town of Summersville, Texas Co., Missouri.  It was named in their honor.   This photo of Summersville’s Main Street taken before
the turn of the century.  Today the population of Summersville boasts only a few hundred souls.
