During a conversation we had I mentioned that as part of the process of researching my Cummings line,--Descendants of Silas & Mary R. (Barber) Cummings,--I had accumulated a considerable amount of elimination data,--information on separate and distinct Cummings families (unless future research discloses currently unknown connections) in the SRGP-area as well as other parts of Tioga County.
This listing could act as a Cummings Families Index:
Alexander & Rosanna (-----) Cummings
African-American Cummings line. Alexander & Rosanna appear in Franklin twp. in 1830; Rutland twp. in 1840 and settled in Charleston by 1850. Alexander Cummings was a miller in Charleston when he died in 1857.
Benjamin Cummings, Sr. & Sarah (-----)
Benj. Cummings originating 1788 in Orange co., N.Y. migrated to Tioga co., Pa. descendants settled primarily in and around Mitchell Creek, Lawrence township area.
Daniel & Elizabeth (Colvin) Cummings
Daniel was the renowned Distiller of Deerfield township.
Dwight & Sally (Wormer) Cummings
This Cummings line are descendants of William & Rhoda (Barrows) of Tolland co., CT. Dwight was a 'native of Cayuga co., N.Y.' coming to Tioga co. in 1856, rented a farm in Chatham twp. for a year, then settling in Middlebury.
Jacob & Mary (Franklin) Comins/Cummings
This Cummings line originates with John Comins (ca. 1668-1751) and his wife Mary, of Woburn and Oxford Massachusetts and Windham County, Connecticut, aka 'Woburn John.' This Cummings line is most associated on the Tri-Counties Genealogy & History Site with Wells twp., Bradford co. as identified by J. Kelsey Jones. Jacob & Mary, however, moved into Rutland township by 1840, Jacob died in Rutland April 30th 1844. Daughters of this Cummings line married MOORE, BLY, and OSGOOD.
John & Sally (Covell) Cummings
While I have accumulated a sufficient amount of data to determine that certain individuals belong to this line as opposed to another Cummings line, I believe that Marjorie Oi would be considered the expert of this line.
Miss Mary Cummings, Register & Recorder in Tioga Co.
Miss Mary Cummings was the d/o of James W. Cummings, of the Cummings line descended from Isaac Cummings of Ipswich, Mass. Mr. Barry Moravek of the Isaac Cummings Family Association would be considered the expert of this line.
Silas Cummings, Sr. & Mary R. (Barber) < http://www.rootsweb.com/~srgp/cummings.htm
Mary states on Silas' death record that he was born in Orange co., N.Y. the s/o "John & Sallie Cummings." Not the same John & Sallie (Covell) Cummings of Ridgebury twp., Bradford co. who came from Butternuts, Otsego co., N.Y. At this time I have exhausted three John Cummings' in Orange co. without successfully identifying any as Silas' parents.
Attached is a descendants report for Benjamin Cummings, Sr. & Sarah (-----).
