The Sumner County Story. (OUT OF PRINT) Sanders, Gwendoline & Sanders, Paul. North Newton: Mennonite Press, 1966.

A historical account of the various communities, features, and some people in Sumner Co. It is a "comfortable" book to read--not too heady as some histories can be--but contains little in the way of strictly genealogical data. It does, however, give the reader a feel of life in the various communities and county in general. Click here for the table of contents.
