I believe there is an error in this posting regarding Gertrude A. (Summerson) Kirkland and her husband Robert B Kirkland in a Summerson-Smith query answered by raison1. If I am wrong, please correct my error.

As I know it ....

Gertrude A. is the daughter of Joseph Summerson (1849 - ?) and Jennie Smith (1852 - ?). Joseph's parents were Marmaduke Summerson (1928 - ?) and Susan Walters (1831 - ?). They had three children: Winfield Emory, Gertrude and Josephine. Robert B Kirkland is her husband (Robert Burns Kirkland). His father was from Canada and his mother from New York ... however I do not know their names or dates.

Bob and Gert made their home in Jericho (post office in Sinnamahoning) until the flood of 1942 washed away their home. They then went to live in Cameron where one of their sons, Robert Lee Kirkland, was living. Their other child, Dewey Emory Kirkland moved to New York State and married Catherine Josephine Esser in Gardenville (West Senea) NY. They had 8 living children, the youngest of whom is my ex-husband.

Robert Lee Kirkland married a Martha Hazel Reese, they had several children together, but later divorced. Robert Lee lived in Cameron and is buried in the Newton Cemetery.

Dewey Kirkland and Catherine Esser are buried in 14 Holy Helpers Cemetery in Gardenville NY.

Gertrude Summerson and Robert B Kirkland are in Wyside Cemetery in Jericho (Sinnamahoning) south of the river off Wykoff Rd on Herb Lane.
