In 1869, George W. Summy Woods and Maggie E. Summy Woods emigrated from Brown County, Illinois, to Sutter County, California. The pair traveled by wagon train as pioneers to the region.
Summy Woods’ were life-long farmers, originally settling on a 160 acre farm. Originally, they raised and sold cows, horses, pigs, and chickens. They also grew hay and walnuts. Now, they are a leading Walnut producer in the Central Valley.
The Family history and tree was submitted by Steve and Betty Perry. The Perrys’ are the Great, great, great grandchildren of George and Maggie Summy.
