By family tradition, it is known that Thomas Summerall went to Florida and married a Spanish woman named Neunez in St. Augustine. A son of Thomas Summerall named William was born around 1805 in Wayne County, Georgia. He married Hetty Wiggins and settled at Blount's Ferry on the Suwannee River in Columbia County, Florida. He acquired a plantation, owned slaves, and kept a store. When the Civil War came, he was quite prosperous. He had a number of children, including at least three sons and three daughters. The eldest, Elbanan Bryant Summerall, born July 5, 1827, remained on the plantation until he went into the Confederate army. In 1862, he married Margaret Cornelia Pelot at Greenwood, South Carolina. They were Charles P. Summerall's parents. Charles was born March 4, 1867. His sister, Meta Margaret Ann, was born on July 4, 1863. His brother, William Bryant, was born April 29, 1865.
