Land that were in the possession of John Summers, Jr that he willed to his sons and heirs, namely the properties named "Child's Portion", "Moore's Addition", "Outlett", "His Lordships Kindness", "Friendship", "Poorman's Industry", and "Covert", were on later part of Andrews Air Force Base. Major runways of Andrews Air Force Base are on the lands of "Child's Portion" and "Moore's Addition".
In 1843 at the death of Nathan Summers, son of Nathan and grandson of John, the Summers family tobacco plantation was divided among his nine children, each receiving about 150 acres and several slaves. The plantation was located where Andrews Air Force Base is today, near the current intersection of I-95 and Pennsylvania Avenue.
The Summers-Marshall Family Cemetery caused the curve in Pennsylvania Avenue east of I-95 interchange. Four tombstones from this cemetery in 1959 were moved to Epiphany Episcopal Cemetery in Forestville, MD.
