Vogel) Reply-to: raglanjps.net To: Chascumaol.com For Carol TKANDR: I put your question to a reference librarian who told me the New York Times has archives you can search for old articles on world events. However, if you are looking for the odd article on someone in your family's history, your best bet would probably be to contact the specific newspaper you are interested in and ask permission to consult its "morgue". There is no central archive of newspaper articles. Esther ------- Subj: Re: CUMMIN(G)S,COMYN'S/FAMILIES - 1 / 1 - 2 Date: 1/17/02 11:57:42 AM Central Standard Time From: Maureen_Watsonferris.edu To: Chascumaol.com This is in response to Joe and Eileen Cummings who are looking for info on Jacob Cummings. My husband's line is from Asa Cummings, b.1746 in VA and died in Simpson Co., KY. I have information on Asa's roots but I am not sure it is verified. The information you provided on Asa's sons is incorrect, according to my records. The son of Asa that my husband is related to is Jesse. He is in the Simpson County, KY censuses. Enoch(b.1816) and Richardson Cummings (b. 1819) are sons of Jesse not Asa. I believe they also had a brother named Asa. I have more info on this line at home if you are interested. I will look for a Jacob but don't recall one. That doesn't mean there wasn't one as my records are probably incomplete. Many of the Cummings in Simpson Co. KY moved over the border into Sumner Co. TN.

William b. 1822 d. ? married Lidia ? children as of 1850 in Harrison Co., MO: John 1841, George 1843, William 1845, Samuel 1847 and Mary 1849 -------- Subj: Cummins - Descendents of David Cummins and wife Elizabeth (Betsy) Lewis Fielder Date: 1/18/02 11:03:05 PM Central Standard Time From: bcnewberryhotmail.com (Barbara Newberry) To: Chascumaol.com I just discovered some new information about my maternal great-great-grandmother Elizabeth "Betsy" Lewis Fielder that some of my cousins may be interested in. Elizabeth "Betsy" Lewis Fielder CUMMINS' mother my maternal GGGgrandmother was Elizabeth Lewis. Her parents names were: William Terrell Lewis and Sarah Martin ....daughter Elizabeth Lewis born 1740 in Surry County North Carolina died April 23, 1818 in Williamson County Tennessee was married twice. She married abt. 1758(1) JOHN BENGE (b. ABT 1735). Following is the story. John Benge was known as John "Chief Trader" Benge. Trader John Benge's children with Elizabeth Lewis (daughter of William Terrell Lewis and Sarah Martin) are WILLIAM LEWIS BENGE, SARAH BENGE< and OBADIAH MARTIN BENGE. Trader John Benge, son of Thomas Benge and Martha?, married Elizabeth Lewis. While still married to Elizabeth Lewis he took a second wife, a Cherokee woman, WURTEH,with whom he had several children. His children with Wurteh, Woman of the Bird Clan are ROBERT "Chief Bob Benge"; "THE BENCH" Benge; UTANA "THE TAIL" Benge; TALSHLISKE "TALOHUSKEE" benge, and Lucy Benge. (before her marriage to Benge she had a child. This child was SEQUOYAH, the well know Cherokee who developed the Cherokee alphabet. One of grandsons of Trader John and Wurteh Bird Clan was John "Chief Wagonmaster" Benge. This grandson was the wagonmaster of one of the wagon trains of Cherokee Indians on the "Trail of Tears." He brought with him on the wagon train a lot of his family and relatives to the new Indian Territory located in northwest Arkansas and northeast Oklahoma. It appears that Trader John was simultaneously married to Elizabeth Lewis and to Wurteh. When Elizabeth and her family discovered WURTEH, her marriage with Trader John ended. Don't know if it was by divorce or annulment! After the marriage was dissolved then Elizabeth Lewis married my GGGgrandfather John Fielder. Their daughter Elizabeth "Betsy" Lewis Fielder, married my GGgrandfather David Cummins in Davidson County Tennessee 12/22/1800. John Benge had a very colorful life and I guess the children he and Elizabeth produced would be my 1/2 relations, some new names to add to my family tree. Their son Obadiah Martin Benge who I can now claim as a relative also lived a very interesting life. Elizabeth's sister, Susannah Lewis, married Trader John's brother, Thomas Benge. David "King David" Benge, a Rev. War soldier who later settled in Kentucky. If your interested go the the Genforun site and look in the BENGE surname forum and read all about it! There is much more information on the Benge/Lewis relations, a lot of history. Barbara Cummins Newberry ------- Subj: George I. Cummins Date: 1/19/02 9:55:25 AM Central Standard Time From: jsc99southwind.net (Jan C) To: ecumminshit.net CC: chascumaol.com I saw your info. in the Cummins mailing list. The dates are correct; but George I. was born in Washington Co., MD (source: obituary and census') and his wife, Mary Ann (Clyde) Cummins was born in 1818 in PA. Mary Ann died at her son, Orange Scott Cummins', homestead in 1896 and is buried there along with Scott's wife, Mary Melinda (Martin) Cummins, who died 24 Jan 1903. I have not found when our branch of the Cummins line actually came to America yet. From a biography written about Philip Cummings/Cummins, the "fourth child in the family in order of birth" and who is a younger brother of George I., their father James Cummins/Cummings was born in 1781 in Kent Co., DE. of Scotch-English ancestry. Unfortunately it doesn't mention what Cummins was the ancester who came to America. George I. Cummins was a regular submitter to the Wesleyan journal or magazine and he was listed as a Wesleyan minister, which I believe is a branch or off shoot of the Methodist Church. I am not sure about that. Other surnames in my husband, Frank's, branch include Clyde, Martin, Peterson?, Tidwell, Biddinger, Faulkner, Hada. Jan jsc99southwind.net ------- Subj: cummings Date: 1/20/02 4:07:13 PM Central Standard Time From: floydandbobeeih2000.net (Floyd and Bobee) To: chascumaol.com My mother was a Cummings. She was from the Pekin,Illinois area. Her dad’s was George Washington Cummings. Does any one know where they fit with the Cummings. Thanks, Bobee ------ Subj: CUMMINS/METCALFE(E) Evidence - Kentucky Date: 1/22/02 1:31:27 PM Central Standard Time From: metcalfesbigfoot.com (The Metcalfe Family) Reply-to: metcalfesbigfoot.com (The Metcalfe Family) To: chascumaol.com I think I've solved a few mysteries surrounding the METCALF(E) connection with the CUMMINS family, and have generated concrete evidence of the relationship. Evidence 1) Previously, I had found the birth record of Alice Belle METCALFE, daughter of Vincent & Nancy METCALFE. The date was 27 Nov 1854, and the mother's maiden name was listed as CUMMINS. Evidence 2) The first and third children (Abraham and James) of Vincent and Nancy were born in Bourbon County, location of the John CUMMINS family. Evidence 3) Grant County marriage records of 2 daughters of Vincent and Nancy's lists the birth places of Vincent and Nancy as Bourbon County. Evidence 4) There has been confusion over a published "Kentucky marriage index" book that lists Vincent METCALFE marrying Nancy Morris on 21 Aug 1832, in Bourbon County, KY. I've ran into this "MORRIS" reference several times. After 2 failed attempts at the county courthouse, I stumbled across the record at the Kentucky History Center in Frankfort. In fact, if lists the bride as Nancy CUMMINS! One witness was Hiram MORROW, which could be interpreted in one place as Hiram MORRIS. So, I chaulk this error in the index to sloppy reading or notes of the author. More importantly, though, is the mother of the bride in the record, see "Evidence 5". Evidence 5) The 21 August 1832 Bourbon County marriage record of Vincent METCALFE and Nancy CUMMINS held at the Kentucky History Center gives the mother of the bride as "Mrs. Betsy CUMMINS". I'd bet this is the "Elizabeth CUMMINS" who took guardianship of the "infant heirs" of John CUMMINS II on Feb 1st, 1819! (Order Book, F pa 24) As my Nancy was born on May 10, 1815, she would have been 4 years old at the formal adoption, and was likely in the adopted household earlier. Thus, it is very likely Nancy would have consider Elizabeth CUMMINS her mother. Any thoughts?

I knew her as child and she had a significant impact on my life. She was one of my Sunday School teachers. I haven't heard from her since about 1995 or 1996. I was just wondering if you had any info. that I could use to write her a letter? Thanks, Micah Driscoll ------- Subj: Joseph Cummins/ R.I., VT Date: 1/24/02 8:04:07 AM Central Standard Time From: keeferfamilyhotmail.com (Amy Keefer) To: Chascumaol.com Hello, Thought I would submit my info again to see if anyone can help. I am looking for a Joseph Cummins, born abt. 1760 in Cumberland Rhode Island. He was married to a woman named Olive but I don't know her last name. Joseph was in the Revolutionary war in 1782. They had a son named Linden and in later years moved to Windsor Co., Vermont. He died there in 1842. Linden was married to Maria Wilkerson and in 1823 they moved to New York. In 1836 Linden and his wife again moved to western Ohio to the Circleville, Pickaway Co., area. If anyone has any information on this family it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Amy Keefer ------ Subj: Cummins Date: 1/26/02 6:57:55 AM Central Standard Time From: keeferfamilyhotmail.com (Amy Keefer) To: Chascumaol.com Hello, Can't remember if I asked you about this already or not. Does anyone have any information on a Linsey Cummins that lived in Jackson Co., Ohio in 1840? He is listed on the 1840 census. There is also a Henry Cummins listed on the same page. Unfortunately the 1840 census does not list names of spouses and children so that is all the info I have. I searched through books on Jackson Co. but couldn't find anything. I am wondering if he might be my Linden Cummins and son Henry. If any one has any info I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you, Joe & Eileen for the Asa Cummings dates 1 Sep 1746 VA and 5 Sep 1816 Simpson Co, KY. Where did these dates come from? You may already know that Simpson Co, KY Historical Society researchers in Franklin, KY have sorted out a lot of the Cummings family there. Mysteries still do remain. Paul & Mary Garrett and Margaret Cummings Snider have good information. Dorothy Steers has meticulously studied the tax lists. Please note that Enoch Cummings b ca 1816 and Richardson Cummings b 1819 were sons of Jesse and grandsons of Asa. My husband Jack descends from Enoch. Margaret descends from Asa 1813-1879, son of Jesse. She says that we do not know the names of all the children of Jessee Cummins (1770/75 VA – ca 1846 KY). Our records include George b 1812, Asa 1813, Enoch 1816, Caroline 1817, Richardson, 1819, and Wilkerson Perry 1818. The 1810 Logan Co, KY census for Jesse shows four sons and three daughters under the age of ten. Maybe your JACOB was one of these sons? I have searched all my records and books, but there is no record for any Jacob Cummings. I am sure glad that he is not ours! Seriously, he may well be part of our family. We welcome any stories passed down your branch of the family about his being a cousin of the neighbor Asa Cummings. When and where was this census? Our records show that Asa Cummings (1775/94 – ca 1828) m1 Kitty Johnston 1807 and m2 Nancy Howerton 1809. Good luck in your search. Barbara Cummings, 1537 W.

It took over thirty years for our family to find elusive great-grandparents in the 1860 census. Your search could also be a major challenge. I use Family Tree Maker, and Jack does the Email. Whatever is easier for you will be appreciated here – ged com or paper records. I am assuming that the 1850 census record for Jacob Cummings next to Asa Cummings was in MaCoupin Co? Several Simpson Co, KY families went to Illinois, but that county is new to me. Our records show these children for ASA CUMMING (son of Moses): Jesse, Elan, Asa, John, Moses, Richard, James, Elizabeth, Nancy, and William. Barbara Cummings, 1537 W. Tenth St, Port Angeles, WA 98363 ------- 1537 W Tenth Street Port Angeles, WA 98363 jcumminolypen.com January 31, 2002 I want to thank you for the good web site for Cummings genealogy.

My maiden name is Cummins. I know very little about the cummins family. My father left when I was young (maintained a relationship with my oldest sister and only brother) His name is Gerald Eugene Cummins, brother Donald and half sister Grace Cummins His fathers name was Chester Cummins and I only remember his mother being referred to as Nan? His (grandmother) Fathers mothers name was Grace Cummins. I do remember hearing that they were having reunions (years ago) by the name Cummins/Ping (not sure how the Ping ties in)? Somewhere in southern Indiana This all takes place in Indiana. I hear that my dad spends time with relatives in KY (not sure who they are) While visiting family during the holidays my brother mentioned missing Vera... I asked what he was talking about and he informed me that "Aunt Vera" had died (over a month before) I think that she was my dads aunt?

The bride was given away by her uncle, Mr F.C. Lawrance. The Protestant church was hansomely decorated with flowers and foliage, and was filled with guests. The bride wore a gown of white satin, embroidered and trimmed with point lace, her veil, of exquisite point d'Alençon, reaching to the hem of her train. A wreath of orange blossoms was worn, but no jewel. The bridegroom was in his uniform as an officer of the Danish Navy.
