The Rev. John Calvin Cunningham was my great-grandfather. He died Aug 18, 1919, in Ursina - Lower Turkeyfoot Twp, Somerset, Pennsylvania, USA. I am looking for Teddi Mata who posted on July 27, 2000 the Following: "Would like info on Reverend John C. Cunningham b.9-13-1842 in PA. m. Mary Ann Gellner & Elizabeth (Lizzie) M. Weaver. He was born Josephus C. Collins. After the Civil War he returned home but left shortly thereafter on the train that ran from New Germantown to Newport, PA. and was never heard from again. Does anyone know why he left or why he changed his name? This has been a Collins family mystery for over a hundred years."
He married "Mary Ann" Anna Maria Theresia Gallner on 7 Oct 1869, and they had 9 children. She can be found at Findagrave.com Memorial #47499643.
JC Cunningham is Findagrave.com Memorial #47470572.
His second wife was Marie Elizabeth Weaver.They had no children.She is Findagrave#47471459.
I can tell you everything after the Civil War, and I need to know about his being Josephus C. Collins.
