Subject: CUMMIN(G)S,COMYN'S/FAMILIES 41 Date: 22 May 1996 From: Chascumaol.com Subj: cummings name Date: 95-12-28 , From: DonaSteely To: Chascum Charlie: I am "Nolie" who wrote you about Sarah Cummins, b.13 Feb. 1734 inFarquier co., VA and died in Knox co., TN. Here is some more information about the family. But first, I think you might be interested in a newsletter called "The Hallmark Quarterly" by William O. Hallmark, 526 Caravaca Dr., Garland, TX 75043, who has published quite a bit about the Cummings family. You should check into it. 1. Sarah was the daughter of Simon Cummings and Elizabeth Harrell. She marr. Richard Mynatt, 31 Mar. 1755 in Prince William Co., VA. They had 10 children, Leannah (my line), being the oldest. b. 19 Feb. 1756. 2. Simon Cummings was b. ca 1700 in Stafford co., VA and died June 1771, Farquier co., VA. Simon the son of Alexander Cummins and Sarah Mutton , marr. Elizabeth Harrell, dau. of Daniel Harrell. 3. Alexander was the son of William Cummins and Anne (no last name known), was born 10 Dec. 1677 at St. Stephens Parish, Northumberland, VA, and died 1737-1739 at Prince William co., VA , marr. Sarah Muttoon, was b. ca. 1680 at Great Wicomico Parish, Gloucester Co., VA, the dau. of John Mattoone, Jr. and wife Sarah. 4. William Cummins, son of Nicholas Cummins, b.1656 VA, marr. Anne (last name not known). 5. Nicholas Cummins son of Nicholas Comins and wife, Ellen Elison,b 1636 in VA. marr. Elizabeth Hooper. 6. Nicholas Comins son of William Cummyne (no wifes name given), b.1602 in London, England, and died 1656 at York co., VA. He marr. Ellen Elison. 7. William Cummyne, b. 1580 probably in Scotland, some say London,England. If you write to Mr. Hallmark, tell him you are interested in the Cummins name. You might want to see Volumne 1, issue 2, published in June 1994, in particular as it has quite a bit of Information in it. I also have a copy of the book " Cummins Ancient, Cummins New", a History of the Cummins family of Rockcastle County, Kentucky by Frances Funk. A second volume was published in 1980. My sister was kind enough to copy the book, or what parts of it she had obtained. It is quite interesting. Hope some of this is of some help to you.

I have been looking for the parents of a Henry or Hugh T. Cummins born in Missouri and raised possibly around Liberty. His parents, according to the censuses, were born in Kentucky.

Marriages from 1706 to 1850---screen 24 of 120. Hope this is helpful. I do not know the parents of the 1806 Charles Cummins I mentioned in the first post. Any help would be appreciate D.

Mary Beth Robb ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------------- Subj: cummin(g)s,family Date:95-12-30 From:kelliaseties.k12.mn.us (Kay Elliasen) It seems many family genealogies gathered their Cummin(g)s information on these two books. Information has been repeated often. "Cummings Geniology" - author Oren Albert Cummins in 1904 or "The Cummings Memorial" by George Moohr in 1903. Which book lists 10,000 descendentsof Isaac Cummings, who came to the U.S with the Massechusetts Bay Colony in1639 and settled in Topsfield and had lands in both Topsfield and Ipswitch. At first reading it seems you would be better off starting in,Delaware County, New York and work back. Checking cemetery records, land records and local records of births and deaths. Are there any names peculiar to your family which may have been passed down. Look for these names.The New York State Historical Society might be helpful in locating records and family histories.The earliest Benjamin in our family was born Benjamin White Cummins 12 January 1777 in Sharon, MA.. His mother was a White and Benjamin was a common name in her family. Benjamin Cummins, born in Delaware County, New York in 1772 would make no connection. Maybe Barry has more information on the Michigan side of things. It would be helpful if you could find an historian in Delaware County, New York. My sister and I looked for certain information for years.We found the most info by visiting the area and connecting up with a local historian. Kay A.

Subj: RE: Cummins/Cummings family Date: 96-05-25 17:51:18 EDT From: lclangcencom.net (Linda) To: Chascumaol.com Mr. Cummins, A couple of weeks ago you placed a post in INROOTS regarding the Cummins/ Cummings family. I'm sorry I didn't write to you sooner about this. There were some Cummings that married into my Lanman family in Perry County, IN. They came from Virginia and settled in Kentucky for a time before coming to Indiana. I don't have a whole lot of information, but if this ties in with your family I would be more than happy to e-mail or snail mail what I have to you. You can let me know. Also, I live in Coles County, IL, right next to Edgar County where you mentioned some of the Cummins had settled at. If I can be of help to you in Edgar County, please let me know.

I don't know that much about him just that he was born in Tennesse Please help me. I am new to AOL and would like to research my family history.

He had 4 (?) children in Ada Oklahoma. He died when my grandfather Robert Brawl Cummings was 7yrs. so it would be abt. 1910. Any help that any one could give me is very much apriciated.

Is it costly??? Here is the solution. The NE Alabama Genealogical Society is now in the process of compiling a database containing the family trees of those with Alabama Ancestors. This society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of our Alabama heritage. We will perhaps be able to help you to locate your 'missing' link and you can help us to help someone else! We are so excited about this project and already our data- base is growing so quickly. When we receive a request and we locate your ancestor, we will send you a print out of their family group sheet, and their parents family group sheet. We will also send you the name and address of the submitter so that you can contact them for more information. We have just begun our project and already we have been able to help several people. Would you consider being a part of this project? If so, please submit a GEDCOM diskette to us via snail mail. Downloading is just too expensive considering all the participation that we are having. Send your GEDCOM 3 1/2 diskette to: NE Alabama Genealogical Society,%Lucinda Evans, Editor, P.O. Box 674, Gadsden, AL 35902. All research requests must be accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelop. If you have any further questions, please e-mail me. Please include your email address with your diskette.
