Thank you BarrymorAOL.com -------------------------thanks for the references-- can any one add to these-?--- ----------------------------------------------------- Subj: Isaac Cummings of Topsfield, MA, Date: 96-03-17 21:33:52 EST From: kelliaseties.k12.mn.us (Kay Elliasen) To: Chascumaol.com Lately people have been sending in information about Isaac but few are sending in the sources of their material. I have found information on Isaac in the following books: 1. Cummings Genealogy Isaac Cummings 1601-1677 of Ipswich in 1638 and some of his Descendants by Albert Orin Cummins, Argus and Patriot Printing House, Montepelier, Vermont: 1904. 2. The Cummings Memorial, A Genealogical History of the Descendants of Isaac Cummings and Early Settler of Topsfield, Mass:1903 compiled by George Mooar 3. Isaac Cummings of Topsfield and Some of his Descendants, by Marietta Clark, Topsfield Historical Society:1899 4. The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. Isaac Cummings of Essex County, Massachusetts. by John PlummerVolumne 529, July, 1991 5. Essex county court probate records. All of these sources give sketchy information on Isaac (1601-1677) some sources repeat information from others. Many questions are unanswered.. 1. What is the name of his wife? source? 2. What ship brought him to this country? 3. Where did he come from? Country of birth and port of departure. Kay A. Elliasen --------- Subj: CUMMINGS, Horatio Nelson Date: 96-03-17 23:19:05 EST From: sandrahix.netcom.com (Sandra Harris) To: chascumaol.com Ken from the NorCal Research Group told me to contact you re: my research for Horatio Nelson CUMMINGS. He was in Sacramento and West Sacramento in the 1880-1900 time period. Had land that he sold to the railroad (Don't know which one). He married Catherine JOHNSON PECK TAYLOR. He died before she did and not in CA but in Mass. I can't find any obituary on him in Sacramento and I haven't gotten anything from Mass (but I haven't tried). I am typing this `off the top of my head' so if you think you could give me some help I will get some exact dates on the man. He was a fruit grower according to the city directory entries I found on him. BTW, Catherine came to CA via Oregon with her husband, Job PECK. Job died in West Sacramento and then she married Frederick TAYLOR - who also died. Then she married Horatio Nelson CUMMINGS. My husband is related to the daughter of the PECK marriage, but I am interested in learning more about Horatio. You'd think with a name like that he'd be easily found, but I just could get a listing on him from the pioneer card file in the CA Room and it really didn't give much information. Well, I couldn't leave it at what I sent you. I went and dug up my notes and see I gave you erroneous data. I knew something looked wrong. Horatio Nelson CUMMINGS was born 30 Jul 1825 MA and died 10 Dec 1910 Mitchellville Jasper IA and he was buried there. He and his wife had been on a trip to his birthplace in MA. >From pioneer card: came to CA by steamer around Cape Horn in 1849 from MA. Educated in Mass. public schools In 1860 he was living in Placer Co with Nathan R. PECK and Mary PECK. Other details from pioneer card: He was a druggist, miner and horticulturist. He was a member of the First Methodist Church. He never took a drink in his life. He was the owner for sixty years of valuable waterfront property now used by the Oakland and Antioch Railway for terminal facilities. Information by grandson, Albert Laurence JOHNSON. His daughter (With Catherine JOHNSTON PECK TAYLOR) was May I. CUMMINGS. She married Albert M. JOHNSON who was the older brother of Hiram JOHNSON, Governor of CA. Now I feel better, I got the details straight.

I have no idea why my GreatGrandfather was named Cummins J. White - but it could be because his mother (who is unknown) may have been a Cummins. We think there is a connection to the Jackson line (Stonewall's mother). I am seeking parents for this Cummins James or Julius or Julian WHITE. He married a Mahala Jane BRIDGES of Harrison MO, they lived all over Iowa. She died in Marshalltown, Ia. He died 1928 in Sawtelle, CA - he was a Civil War vet. Have you seen anything along this line???

Well atleast you know lots of people who are interested in geneology. I can't add anything to what I read but it was sure FUN and interesting!! Please, keep me on your list to hear from the rest of the Bunch. I have been reading a book about 'Stonewall' Jackson, he had an uncle named Cummins in honor of a Gm who married a JACKSON. Do you have any information on this Elizabeth Cummins Jackson??? Is CUMMINS an 'unusual' name? I know WHITE is very common, makes it tough to find who you are looking for. Thanks for the letter!

I need info on the Cummings family in KY that Enoch comes from. Keep em coming Chas, Bea Henry BerylH2644 aol.com ------- From: Diemakr To: C D Larson CC: Chascum I read your e-mail regarding Cummings and New York.I have just started to research my Cummings line. I don`t have very much. All I have is the following: --- My father`s name was Milton James Cummings and was born on 5/24/1922 in Rochester, New York. --- His parents were Milton James Cummings and Anna Agnes Finn. They were married in Kings County, New York on December 30,1920. I don`t know where they lived after they were married. I`m guessing that they lived in Rochester, New York when their first son (my father) was born.They had two more sons who both died as infants.Thomas Raymond b. Aug. 17,1923, died Feb 16,1924 and Richard Bernard Cummings b. Sept. 20,1926, died Oct. 30,1926. I was told that they both had died from ear infections (complications). --- My grandfather was born on April 25, 1898 in Baldwin, New York.He died on July 25 1940. I don`t know who his parents were because like I said, I just got started. My father did not talk about his family at all. I didn`t even know that he had had two brothers until a family friend had mentioned it while giving my father`s eulogy. --- My grandfather was quite a traveler. He enlisted in the Army when he was 18 yrs.old, served 3 yrs. and was discharged on May 2nd, 1919. I don`t have anything on what he did after he was discharged. I found a journel that he had started to keep in April of 1920. In the beginning of the journel he gives the name of J.E. Cummings of Roch- ester, N.Y. as the person to notify in case of an accident. (This gives me an idea as to find out who his parents were) He was not very detailed in his journel, but he did write where he went. He went to Erie,PA., Cleveland,Ohio, Akron Ohio, Garret, Ind. and Chicago. he notes that he started working for N. Food Products on Monday April 26th, 1920. He seemed to stay there until May 27,1920.He then writes that he " worked on Big "4" at Lindale, Ohio" (Big "4" ???) He left Lindale in June 1920. The next thing I know is he enlisted in the Navy in July of 1920. He was discharged in Aug. of 1921.I was told that he died while in a V.A. hospital in Batavia, N.Y. I don`t know if this will ring a bell at all.Thanks for letting me share this. I hope that someone reads this and can offer some help. I would think that the New York City area and probably more to the east is where I`m going to find alot of info. CHARLIE: Please distribute this as you do with all the other interesting mail. I have a feeling that once I find out something about my gg grandfather, I`ll be able to make a connection with some of the other Cummings` researchers. Thanks, Milton Cummings III ---------- Subj: Cummins Family Date: 96-03-22 00:32:47 EST From: K2ed To: Chascum I read your message on the bulletin board and I don't know if this will be of any use, but my grandmother, born in Scotland was of this line. Let's see if I can organize chronolgically like you did: Henry CUMINE b: 24 Jul 1796 in Dromore, Down Ireland married Agnes (Ann) Nancy HELLIS m:27 Nov. 1820 Down Ireland I can only find two children listed: Sarah CUMINE b:Sep 1826 Kilcoo, Down, Ireland and Robert CUMMINS b: 1833 Kilcoo, Down, Ireland Robert CUMMINS (CUMMINGS) married Catherine Mitchell in Kirkinner, Wigtown Scotland on 29 May 1855 they had four children: Robert CUMMING b: 1860 Wigtown Scotland Peter CUMMING b: 1863 " " William CUMMING b: 1869 " " Catherine CUMMING b: 1871 " " Then my line comes from William ......married Janet WRIGHT on 26 Jul 1898 these are my grandmother's parents, also from Wigtown Scotland. I'm not sure this is of any use. Hopefully it will be.

Thankyou for your efforts. You may recall my earlier inquiries: Charles Cummins b. 1806 in Ky, d. 1853 in Camden Co., Missouri. His siblings, we believe, included James b. 1798 and m. to Rutha Clinton; Darling b. 1809 and m. to Minervia; Harriett b. 1813 and m. to B. Clinton; John b. 1815 and m. to Permilia; and Henry b. 1818 and d. 1903. All appear to have been born in Kentucky. Charles Cummins was my g-g-grandfather. Although I keep watching I have not seen anything related to this line. If you have discovered anything I would be grateful to learn about it. Charles wife we believe was named "Frances" b. 1812 in Ky---same state as all of Charles siblings. Charles and Frances along with their friends, the Clintons, migrated to Missouri in 1835 or 36. Thanks for any help. D. Duane Cummins ----------
