CUMMINGS/(CUMMINS), Abner, 1811
- 15 Feb 1886.
CUMMINGS/(CUMMINS), Louisa, 1817 - 10 Nov 1904. Abner was the father of Manomey Cummins who married Rube C. Cummings - they
were 1st cousins once removed - genealogy programs show Rube as the grandnephew
of Manomey (Omey). Rube was the son of Lindsay, son of Jacob (according to
family info and a census).
Information from 1870 Lawrence Co., Census shows Louisa and Abner's Family. From
Kenneth Warise: "ELISA" WAS LOUISA GRISHAM. ABNER MARRIED LOUISA, A
WIDOW WITH TWO CHILDREN, IN LAWRENCE COUNTY ON FEB. 4, 1868. Louisa's daughter,
Frances married Houston Cummins. Houston was a brother to my great-grandmother,
Manomey. Louisa Gresham Cummins was Houston's step-mother as well as his
mother-in-law. 1880 Census of Maury Co., Tn shows Louisa living with Houston and
Frances. Note from Kenneth Warise: LOUISA - WIDOW OF HOUSTON'S FATHER (ABNER)
AND MOTHER OF HIS WIFE (FRANCES). HER LISTING IN THIS CENSUS EFFECTIVELY
CONTRADICTS THE 1886 DEATH DATE ON ABNER'S TOMBSTONE. HE OBVIOUSLY DIED BEFORE
1880. Listing & info
