Also interested in knowing if any Cummins people might have gone to Kansas and worked with or married into the Kaw Indian tribe. I have information from the National Archives and other sources that list a couple of Cummins/Cummings as Kaw. That could also be a Cummins who married into the tribe. I have a Phebe Lekey/Leakey who married a Cummins probably about 1850-1855 and was living in Adams County Iowa in 1880. I have no info on the decendents of this couple and would love to hear from anyone who does. Phebe had 2 siblings also living in the area: Sarah Leakey Davis, wife of William F. Davis and Susan Leakey Hart wife of Daniel Hart. Happy Holidays!
