Therefore, that msg should be in the Archives. There could not be too many people with that name. There has to be a connection. Anyway, I was in the same Destroyer Squadron with Cdr Ward Cummings in 1964. He became a Capt and then, I think, a Rear Adm. He died in a commercial aircraft crash in NC sometime in the 1970s. I knew the details at one time, but water flows. If HuckLor wants to know more, get on the USN Web page and start turning the rocks. R/ DEC405 ------- Subj: WARD CUMMINGS Date: 96-09-10 14:58:40 EDT From: DEC405 To: HuckLor CC: Chascum Ward Cummings being a strange name, had me sit up several weeks ago. I am not sure if I made you a msg or not--had it in mind, got involved with myself and CUMMINS. Anyway it being a strange first name--back in 1963 in Pearl Harbor there was a Commander Ward Cummings in command of the USS Carpenter (DD ??). He went on to command another DD and I forget the name, but was involved in some flap on a deployment to the western Pacific-must have been about 1965 +/-. He went on to become a Rear Admiral and was killed in an civil aircraft crash in North Carolina about 1968. There was an Asst Sec Defense (International Security Affairs) in the same aircraft. If you are interested you could rattle the cage of the Bureau Of Naval Personnel and they might give you something--such as his home town. His wife's name Lil --I think. All a long time ago. I am an idiot with names-have hard time with my own. R/ DEC405 ------- there is a whole lot of cummins info in this , if you care to research it charlie .....

CUMMIN, (Marion Township) one of Marion's old retired merchants, was born in Perry County, Penn., June 13, 1834. His father, Dr. William Cummin, was twice married, and was the father of six children, viz., T. S. (the subject of this sketch), Mrs. Rebecca J. Beatty, Mrs. Margaret S. Leonard (of Marion, Ohio), Hon. H. H. Cummin (President Judge of the Twenty-ninth Judicial District, Lycoming County, Penn.) and Mrs. Mary A. Watson, all of Williamsport, Penn.; and R. I Cummin, merchant, of Dayton, Ohio. Earl in life, Mr. Cummin the subject of this sketch, began the career of a clerk at Duncannon, Penn., and followed it for six years; in 1855, he came to Marion and after clerking a short time for J. S. Reed & Co., he became a member of the firm of Johnson, Uhler & Co., which succeeded the former firm. He remained a partner till 1874, when the firm diasolved; but Mr. Cummin continued in the mercantile business up to the spring of 1880, when, on account of ill health, he was compelled to retire. He was a successful merchant, and was identified with the public interests of the town. He erected, in 1872-73, his residence on East Center Street. which is the most expensive residence in Marion. In 1881-82, he erected the Cummin Block, an imposing three-story brick, on the corner of Main and South streets. Mr. Cummin was married on the 24th of September 1867, at Wooster, Ohio, to Miss Lavinia R. Hart, a daughter of William and Prudence Hart. Mr. Hart died in Juniata County. Penn., in 1855, an in 1867 his widow moved to Wooster, Ohio, where she now resides. Mrs. Cummin was born in Juniata County, Penn., July 26, 1843. Mr. and Mrs. Cummin have one daughter -Winifred. They are both consistent members of the Presbyterian Church. . JOHN E. LEONARD, (Marion Township) deceased, was born in Nassau, Germany, December 12, 1834. When nine years of age, he came with his parents, John and Mary Leonard, to America, who located for awhile in Mansfield, Ohio, then in Coshocton County, Ohio. He passed his youth at Mansfield, when thirteen engaging as clerk in a large establishment. In 1857, he moved to Marion and entered the drug trade under the firm name of Bruck & Leonard. About 1860, he bought out Mr. Bruck and continued the sole manager till death. October 10, 1861, he was married to Margaret S. Cummin, daughter of Dr. William and Margaret (Steele) Cummin, of Liverpool, Penn. Their union was blessed with three children-Mary M., Edward T. and Margaret S. Mr. Leonard commenced in life a poor boy, but through industry accumulated a good property, consisting chiefly of a business block on Main Street and his residence with several acres of ground on South West Street. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, to which he contributed liberally, and of the Masonic order. His death took place December 6, 1870. Mrs. Leonard and her family are members of the Presbyterian Church. . CUMMINS, WILLIAM, one of the leading farmers and stock-growers of Auburn Township, Crawford Co., Ohio, was born in Indiana Co., Penn., March 28, 1834; he was brought up by his parents on a farm, receiving his education in the district school, until he became of age, when he took charge of a general line of merchandise, such as was kept in a country store, conducting the business about one year, when he disposed of the goods and went on the farm, where he remained one year, when he again engaged in business at Chambersville, Indiana Co., Penn., where he remained until Aug. 31, 1861. when lie volunteered in a military organization. Mr. Cummins ranked as Captain of the company, and was placed in the 14th Army Corps, commanded by Gen. Thomas. Capt. Cummins resigned his command about Aug. 1, 1863, returning home sick. He emigrated to Ohio in August, 1864, locating on the D. C. Morrow farm, where he now resides, on a beautiful site, consisting of 600 acres in one body, a portion of which lies in Plymouth Township, the balance in Auburn Township, Crawford Co. The Captain married Miss Mary J. Morrow Aug. 24, 1864, and by their union had nine children, five of whom are living, viz.: Core Elizabeth, David William, Joseph Dick, Julia Brown Mateer, Nancy Susan Clark. Mrs. Cummins was born Aug. 3, 1836, on their present farm; she attended school at Plymouth until she was about 18 years of age, finishing her education at Delaware, Ohio. Mr. Cummins was elected Treasurer of Auburn Township in April, 1877, and Land Appraiser in October, 1879. As a family, they incline to the Presbyterian Church, and are respected by all who know them. Mr. Cummins is an active, energetic man, taking an interest in all public affairs, and has an interesting family, in which he takes a fond father's pride. CUMMINS, WILLIAM, deceased. William, son of David and Mary (Trimble) Cummins, was born on the 5th day of February, 1809, in Indiana Co., Penn.; about the 9th year of his age, he removed with his parents to Richland Co., Ohio, his father having previously, in 1816, located a tract of land some five mires west of Shelby; his boyhood and early manhood were passed in assisting to hew out a home in the then unbroken wilderness; sixty years ago, the facilities for acquiring an education in this county were comparatively meager; but such as they were, the subject of this sketch made the most of, for, in after years, he showed a thoroughness in the branches then taught, and a familiarity with the forms of business, that made him a man of mark in the community in which he resided ; in speaking of his early struggles to acquire an education, he always gave great credit to Rudolphus Morse and Benjamin Griffith, two of the most accomplished teachers and beat-informed men of their day; upon arriving at his majority, he was elected Justice of the Peace, a position he held continuously until he removed from the township: the official business of that day wag largely in collections, and many who have since acquired a competency, will remember his large-hearted leniency, when they were struggling to get a start in life. In March, 1831, he was married to Jane, daughter of Abraham and Agnes (Wallace) Cahill, and the issue of this union was three sons and four daughters, to wit: Nancy, David, Abraham Cahill, George Wallace, Mary Eliza, Jane and Rebecca; Nancy, George W. and Mary are deceased. His wife died Dec. 17, 1853, and in 1855, he married Mrs. Matilda Dungan ; no issue by this marriage. About 1842, he united with the M. E. Church, and ever afterward was a consistent member, taking a deep interest in its welfare and prosperity. In politics, he was a Democrat of the old school, but love of country rose above party fealty, and he was among the first in Shelby, at the breaking-out of the late war, to insist that party lines should be obliterated until we had a united country. He was called to preside over the first war meeting held in Shelby, and among the very first held in the State, and always gave his time and money freely to further the cause of the Union and care for the families of the soldiers. In 1868, he removed to Tuscola, III., and purchased a tract of land, and gave himself strictly to its cultivation; the success that had followed him through life did not desert him here, and his business continued prosperous. Some five years ago his bodily health failed, and the infirmities of age coming on, compelled him to seek a quiet and retired life. He spoke frequently and without fear of his fast-approaching end. Though long expected, the final summons came suddenly to his surviving friends; he was stricken with paralysis and only survived a few hours; he left a widow and four children to mourn his loss. He was the father of David Cummins, of Shelby, and A. C. Cummins, of Mansfield, who were with him for several days prior to his death. The I. O. O. F., of which fraternity he was an honored member, performed the last sad rites at his obsequies. --- 936 - BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES. Thus passed to the better world beyond, one who filled more than an ordinary space in the affairs of his time, and, dying, left to his children the priceless legacy of an honored and honest name. CUMMINS, DAVID, SR. (deceased), was born in Rockingham Co., Va., on the 28th day of February, 1782, and removed with his parents in 1790, to Indiana Co., Penn., where he grew to manhood; he was a soldier in the war of 1812, and belonged to a regiment that was raised for the defense of Baltimore; in 1816, in company with Andrew Dixon, Sr., a widely and well known pioneer, he came to Richland Co., and purchased a tract of land on the Tiffin road, some eighteen miles distant from Mansfield, now a part of Auburn and Vernon Townships, Crawford Co., and shortly thereafter removed his family to that place ; Mrs. Dixon and himself assisted William Green in building the first log house in all that country round about; he was married in 1803 to Mary Trimble; the issue of this marriage was two eons and four daughters; his first wife dying in 1824, he married Rebecca Hoblitzell, by whom he had one daughter, the late Mrs. Thomas Mickey, of Shelby ; the children by his first marriage were George, William, Eliza (married to Hon. R. W. Cahill), Jeannette (married to Robert Cook, of Wayne Co., Ohio), Mary (married to Andrew Dixon. Jr.), and Nancy (married to James English); George Cummins married Caroline Hoblitzell, and William Cummins married Jane Cahill ; David Cummins, Sr., was a man of great physical endurance, remarkable for his energy and decision of character; he was of Scotch-Irish parentage and possessed many of the best qualities of both nationalities. In religion, he was a Presbyterian of the old school, and rigorously observed and carried out the teachings and tenets of his favorite church; he was emphatically a pioneer in all that the word imports, and had the will and the physical power to hew a home out of the then unbroken wilderness, and was largely instrumental in assisting all of his children to secure a fair start in life; he died Dec. 26, 1866, at the same old homestead that he selected for his home a half-century before. .

All the girls were married in Oregon. On the marriage certificate of Sarah F. Cummins and L. M. Archambeau (14 Jul 1878, Douglas County, Oregon), it says that the marriage took place at the home of Wm. R. Cummins. I am not aware that the girls had an relatives named Cummins in Oregon and wonder whether this Wm. R. Cummins is a relative. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might know anything about a Wm. R. Cummins that lived in Douglas County, Oregon in 1878. On the marriage certificate for Martha Cummins and William Anderson (27 Nov 1900, Douglas County, OR), Blanche Cummins was a witness. I don't know who Blanche Cummins was and would be interested in any information about her. Thank you for your help.

If you can link to him with proof, you are now eligible to apply for DAR membership. Asa and his brother William were listed as signers of legislative petitions from 1776 to 1781 in Stafford Co.
