2. Terence CUMMINS (Pierce). Terence married Alicia NOLAN . Alicia was born in 1810 in Cranaha, Ballon, Co. Carlow, IRL. She died in 1863.

History of Ballon and Rathoe, Vol. 1, By Fr. Peadar Mac Suibhne [Fr. Peter Swayne], Pg. 104 - Ellen Connors, Sraugh, related to Denny Walsh's wife, nee Nolan born in Ardristan or Aghade, rather where P. Nolan, her nephew, is now. He was a grandson of Miss Connors. Mrs. Denny Walsh's mother, a Miss Connors, Kilnock, married a Moore of Grange, Johnny thinks, an only daughter. After a year or two of marriage the husband died. They had one child and she had to leave Grange and come back to Kilnock and then she married Pat Cummins of Killane, brother of old Terence. He died and then she married William Nolan of Rosslea. After a year or two she died and he married Miss Nolan, Ballon.
       Tom Treacy's mother was Maria Cummins, daughter of Pat Cummins. Moores are there still, probably the same as Sheppards. One of the Moores asked someone to show him Tom Treacy, his first cousin. They had the same grandmother, Miss Connors. Tom and young Cummins are second cousins. The old home of Cummins in Killane possibly where Peter Brophy is living. There were Cummins of Turtane and Cummins of Moanmore, all sprung from the piece of land 30 or 40 acres that Miss Carthy had before she died near Crowe's Cross and the late Ned Canavan's cottage. Miss Carthy was a niece of ...... Cummins. Crowe's Cross is at the Fenagh side of Burren bridge on the way from Ballon to Fenagh. Cornie Kennedy was from around there. He had a daughter Winnie in Dublin at the time he died. His wife was Miss Fetherson, Carrig.

Pg. 112 - KILLANE NOLANS; Nolans, Killane, came from Myshall. Hugh Nolan, the Plucker's grandmother, was Miss Brophy, Shankill, the mother of Father Nolan, who is buried in Myshall; he was off the mission. Two Frs. Nolan, Fr. Tom, Abbeyleix, and Fr. John, P.P., Kildare, were evicted from Lisgarven and went to Ballinrush. Ter Cummin's people came from Kellistown. They were called Cummins. Cummin's related to Nolans, Burrin Side, Mrs. Nolan, Muinebheag. The Nolans related to Cummins were most likely at Cranaha, a big place, but a long way down the fields. The gate is at the Fenagh side of Morrisseys, and at Morrissey's side of the road. A very old family. They left the place to a niece who married a Ryan. They sold it out. There was a Miss Lalor there. These Nolans were also related to the Kilkeen Nolans. The Kilkeen gardens are there still, at the back of Ballon Hill. They were evicted from the McCormacks where Simon Maher has the land. Ter Byrne, uncle of Ter Cummins, came from Acann and got into the place. The Kilkeens owned a good deal of Leckys and were evicted. Fr. Peter Nolan, who is buried at the back of the sacristy in Ballon, is of this family.
