    Re: Sumner

    Jim - don't know if this a start on a useful lead, but this was a publicly 
    unanswered query on a board this last March:
    
    "I am looking for the burial site of Thomas Hubbard Sumner who died in 
    Taunton, MA on 3/9/1876 but is buried in Boston. He was a sea captain, a 
    graduate of Harvard and was born in Boston on 3/20/1807. Any help will be 
    appreciated. Thanks
    
    David M. Sumner

    I assume this is a relative. Somewhere at home I have a little more 
    information on Sumner, his ship, tons, etc. I just purchased "Line of 
    Position Navigation: Sumner and Saint Hilaire the Two Pillars of Modern 
    Celestial Navigation" by Vanvaerenbergh & Ifland but have not even looked at 
    it yet. I assume the work of Sumner's included is the first edition. I know 
    my copy is not the first, I think it is the 2nd ed., if anyone wishes to 
    check any specific differences.
    
    Hope this is of some use.
    
    Marvin
