I have a Thomas Summa, son of Domenica Summa b 1868 Avigliano and Domenica Maria Sabia b 1880 Avigliano; he has between 5 and 21 siblings. Thomas married Margaret Gismondi b 1917, and they had at least a child or 2 together. I have some information backwards from that ... to his greatgrandfather Tomasso Summa b 1817 Avigliano and greatgrandmother Crescenzia Guglielmi. I also have another Thomas Summa b Catherine (unknown) and it looks like they had 3 kids. His parents are Vito Vincenzo Summa and Vita Crescenzia Sabia. Vito's parents are Tommasso Summa b 1866 Avigliano d 1902 New York and Ann Marie Zaccagino b 1868 Avigliano. Go back 2 generations and you find Tomasso & Crescenzia from above. I have another Tomasso Summa m Margherita Bochicchio = 7 kids. His parents are Donato Summa and Caterina Romaniello. His parents are Tomasso & Ann from above. There was recently a lot of chatter on the Summa, Guglielmi, Sabia, and Zacaggino surnames on Facebook page "Avigliano and Aviglianese".

My grandmother was Donata Summa from Melfi/Avigliano and came here around 1914/15 with one of her sisters Vita Crescenza (Pia) and lived in San Francisco. She also had another sister in San Francisco. I know she had a brother (Paolo) that lived in Uniontown, PA and believe an uncle who lived in Waterford or a small town in Conn whom she stayed with when she first arrived in the US. If I remember correctly her mother's last name was Lacerenza and her father was Tommaso Summa who worked for the King when she was a child in Avigliano. If you have any info please contact me.

    1. [SUMMA] Hans Peter Sumi... This is what I have. Do not know how accurate
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: jppaula Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.summa/45/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hans Peter was the son of Caspar Sumi fro Saanen, Switzerland. Tradition has family exiled from Canton Aargauand migrating to Offenburg in Middle Baden, the to Northern Alsace where Peter was a herdsman near Rexingen. It was there that he married in the Lutheran Church. There is no record as towhen he converted to the " Anabaptists" or "Menonites". Obviously it was after his marriage, possible while they lived in Holland. In their travels and migrations they could accumulate little property and they apparently had to work at whatever the nobility provided. Tradition says that when Alsace was ceded to France, they migrated to Holland and from there he coame to America in 1733 with his wife, Maris and family. He was earliest known minister atthe Groffdale Mennonite Church in Earl Township, Lancaster County, PA after the departure of Hand Rudolph Nagele about 1735. The known records of Maria Haldy Sumi are in the ship arrivals in Colonial Records; as a sponsor of Hans Michael Sumi's daughter, magdalena, at Tulpehocken Church in 1749, in son Hans Jacob Sumi's will and in the marriage records in northern Alsace at the Diedendorf Reformed Church (The location is now Berg-sur-Moselle in France- Zip 57570 Cattenom) (Source: Annette Burgert "Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Alsace") On the passenger records she is shown as age 58 but those records were notoriously inaccurate as to ages and from the ages of her children it appears she was much younger. ================================================================= Hans Peter Sumi, Sr. and his wife, Maria Magdalena (Haldy), sailed from Rotterdam, Holland in the Brigantine "Richard and Elizabeth" under Captain Christopher Clymer. They touched at Plymouth, England, presumably for supplies, and landed at the City of Philadelphia on September 28, 1733. According to passenger lists and other records, the family consisted of Hans Peter Sumi, Sr. age 59; Maria Magdalena, age 58; Maria, age 24; Hans Jacob, age 22; Hans Peter, Jr., age 20; Otto Frederick, age 15; Hans Michael, age 10; and Johannes, age 5. The ages are known to be incorrect in several instances. Maria was born in 1706, Jacob was born in 1711, and Johannes was born in 1723. The ages of the others have not been verified. There is also a tradition that there was another brother who "died at sea." Apparently, as other immigrants did, they walked to the Courthouse in Philadelphia to take the required Oath of Allegiance to the English King. The men made their "mark," unable to write in English. Hans Michael and Johannes were listed as minors. Where they spent the first and second years is unknown at present, but by 1735 they were in Earl Township of Lancaster County, near New Holland. Peter Sumi, Sr. was a minister at the Groffdale Mennonite Church for several years. Tradition says that he and his wife died in that area and were buried at that church. A German custom of the time was to have a first or "Christian" name but to use their second or "called" name in everyday life. And so the sons were known in America only as Jacob, Peter, Frederick or "Fritz", Michael, and Johannes. Confusion in records often occurred because English was the "official" language and when referred to by English writers, their first names were often used. Their German friends knew them only by their "called" names. Over the years, many spellings of the name were used and often changed in the same branch of the family. It depended upon the person doing the writing. Summy and Summey are predominant today. Census records varied greatly. Current usage is: * Summy - entire JACOB branch, most of the JOHANNES branch, some of the MICHAEL branch in Iowa and Texas. * Summey - PETER branch, FRED branch, and much of the MICHAEL branch. * Sumey - JOHANNES branch of southwestern Pennsylvania. * Summa - MICHAEL branch of NC/IN/MO, descendants of George Summey and Catherine Carnes. There is also a family in the Pittsburgh, PA area who trace their family to Italy and claim no relation to us. * Sumney - not our family, but SOME Summeys, inadvertently or otherwise, may have adopted this spelling. * Summe - indeterminate. There are groups in Georgia and the Cincinnati area who claim descendancy from a later Sumi immigrant from Germany. However, no immigration records have been found to verify this tradition. Sumi - later (19th Century) immigrants from Europe. One family came from Hungary in 1890 per a descendant. ======================== Hans Peter and Maria Magdalena moved from Switzerland to Alsace where youngest son, Johannes, was born in 1728 prior to immigration to America in 1733. Sailed on Richard and Elizabeth from Rotterdam via Plymouth, England. Arrived Philadelphia September 28, 1733. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
