Does your Cummins info have a Hugh CUMMINS born in KY (I donít know the date), but he died in MO 8161-62. He was married to Nancy Emily BAILIS (BAILISS, BAYLESS). They had three children in KY and three more in MO. The came to MO about 1830 so he must have been born about 1800 or sooner to have had three children by then. Those three wer Martha (Patsy), John Bailis and James (my gg grandfather). I have not been able to find the family in KY, but Hugh is not a common name, so I keep thinking I will find them somewhere. Any info will be appreciated. Virginia Winters, P.O.

Barr lived in central Indiana in 1863 when his daughter (my husband's grandmother) Cynthia Ellen Barr was born (Thorntown Boone Co IN). She later married Thomas Cummings on 24 Dec 1893 in Vermilion County Illinois. We know nothing about the parents of James E. but see a similarity in the BARR/CUMMINGS connection. Did any of your Barr family live in Indiana? We will appreciate any information you may be able to give. We have diligently searched for this family for several years with no results. We do have the line on down from Cynthia Barr,Dunn,Cummings and Thomas William Cummings. Thomas father was Jackson Alexander Cummings son of James Cummings son of John Cummin(g)s of Nelson County Kentucky.

The church was formed, indeed, at his house, and his wife and his daughter, Mrs. Symonds, with her husband, united in the organization. He was buried in Hancock, NH church yard, now Pine Ridge cemetery, his grave stone being the first one erected there, in 1790, as his grandson, Asahel, remembered assisting his father, when about 13 years old in placing the stone in position.

She was the daughter of Pelatiah and Ruth Adams. Pelatiah Adams was son of Thomas and Mary (Blackmore) Adams. Thomas Adams was son of the immigrant Henry Adams of Braintree, MA (gg-grandfather of President John Adams.) John is sometimes referred to as Deacon. He settled in Westford April 27, 1759. He had been "of Chelmsford" prior to this where he was inportant in the town's activities, being moderator of the meeting called to select the minister on May 2, 1727. He was elected Deason of the new precinct, Westford, a part formerly of Chelmsford, in December, 1727, moderator of the first recorded town meeting, and on the first board of selectmen where he served for 13 years.

John Cummings II, born 1657 in Boxford, Essex Co, MA; died Aft 1732 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. He was the son of John Cummings I (SEE BELOW) and Sarah Howlett. He married Elizabeth Kinsley Sep 13, 1680 in probably Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. She was born Nov 22, 1657 in Braintree, Norfolk Co, MA; died Jul 3, 1706 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. She was the daughter of Samuel Kinsley and Hannah Brackett. (Samuel Kinsley was the son of the immigrant Stephen Kingsley - I have some info on the Kinsleys. Hannah Brackett was daughter of the immigrant Peter Brackett and his wife Alice Blower - I have quite a bit of info on both of these families. Hannah Brackett married 2nd John Blanchard and had many more children. She was killed in the same Indian attack as her daughter Elizabeth.) John lived in Dunstable and was one of a small garrison in Dunstable established December 25, 1702 under command of Lt. Col. Jonathan Tyng. It is usually stated that it was the garrison at his own house which was assaulted, July 3, 1706, by a party of two hundred Mohawk Indians. His house stood on the right hand of the road from Dunstable to the present town of Tyngsborough, about a half mile from Dunstable. The stories of the attack are not harmonious in all particulars. It seems to be agreed that there was a company of soldiers in the garrison at the time and that they were surprised. "At sunset a Mr. Cummings and his wife went out to milk their cows and left the gate open. The Indians wo had advanced undiscovered, started up, shot Mrs. Cummings dead ('Goody Cummings died July 3, 1706, at night.') upon the spot, and wounded her husband who had his arm broken, but was so fortunate as to reach the woods while the Indians were engaged in the house. That night he lay in a swamp in the northerly part of Tyngsborough, about a quarter of a mile west of the great road, and a few rods south of the state line. The next day he arrived at the garrison near Tyngsborough Village." He may have remarried the widow of John Solledino. They had 8 children: i. John Cummings III, born Jul 7, 1682 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA; died Apr 27, 1759 in Westford, Middlesex Co, MA; married Elizabeth Adams Oct 3, 1705 in Charlestown, Suffolk Co, MA. ii.

Elizabeth Cummings, born Jan 5, 1686/87; died 1751; married Joseph French. iv. Sarah Cummings, born May 20, 1690 in Groton, Middlesex Co, MA; married Matthew Butman Jul 14, 1720. v. Ebenezer Cummings, born Sep 17, 1695 in Woburn, Middlesex Co, MA; died Sep 5, 1724. vi. Ann Cummings, born Sep 14, 1698; married John Taylor. vii.

John Cummings I, born Bef May 9, 1630 in Mistley, Essex, England; died Dec 1, 1700 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. He was the son of Isaac Cummings (SEE BELOW) and Anne unknown. He married Sarah Howlett Dec 1, 1655 in Boxford, Essex Co, MA. She was born Mar 3, 1633/34 in Ipswich, Essex Co, MA; died Dec 7, 1700 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. She was the daughter of Thomas Howlett and Alice French. (Thomas Howlett was a young man of twenty-five when he sailed for New England on one of the ships of the Winthrop fleet in 1630. Alice French was the daughter of Thomas and Susan (Riddlesdale) French, who had come to New England before her parents. Much research and controversy concerning her parents.) John received by his father's will the homestead consisting of 40 acres with houses, barns, orchards and fences which he sold in 1680 to Edward Nealand. This farm was bounded by land of Edward Nealand (Kneeland) and by Tobijah Perkins and the Ipswich common land. He had moved to Boxwood about 1658, made a freeman in 1673. Both he and his wife were members of the church of Topsfield on December 7, 1685 when the church voted to let them go to the church in Dunstable, "he without commendation, his wife with commendation". (from Topsfield Church records) He had moved to Dunstable in 1680 where he was one of the first settlers. He was a selectman in 1682, and a member of the church in 1684. They had 11 children: i. John Cummings II, born 1657 in Boxford, Essex Co, MA; died Aft 1732 in Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA; married Elizabeth Kinsley Sep 13, 1680 in probably Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA. ii.

Samuel Cummings, born Dec 28, 1677. Isaac Cummings, born May 3, 1601 in England; died Abt May 22, 1677 in Topsfield, Essex Co, MA. He married Anne unknown. Isaac Cummings came from England to this country in October, 1635. The first mention of his name in Essex County records is an entry made by the town clerk of Watertown as receiving a grant of 35 acres in the earliest general land grants in 1636 called the "Great Dividends". Also, a record exists made by the Town Clerk of Ipswich, showing that he owned a planting lot near Reedy marsh, in that town, previous to July 25, 1638. There are extensive notes and research on him. See the two published books on him by Rev George Mooar and A.O. Cummins. They had 5 children: i. Isaack Cummings, born Bef May 20, 1629 in Mistley, Essex, England; died Bef May 23, 1629 in Mistley, Essex, England. ii.
