Re: susan e cummins 1857 ohio
I have a Susan Cummins, born late 1857 in Lucas County Ohio.
She is the daughter of Joshua W Cummins and Amy Ann Pierce (Annie).She had the following siblings:
Hosea B -1854
Simeon J - 1859
Ralph - 1861
Clark - 1865
The 1860 censusis the last I find Joshua in Ohio.The next time I find him is in 1880 in Nebraska, and according to his Civil War pension papers, Annie had died.
His mother Susan remained in Ohio and died in 1875.She is buried in the Rupp Cemetery, Waterville Twn. Lucas County.
I have Susan Cummin's (the child's) paternal history back to the 1600s.Let me know if any of this sounds familiar and I'll be happy to forward everything I have on them.
Just a teaser:Susan's 5th or 6th great grandfather Issac Cummings Jr, testified at the Salem witch trials against Elizabeth Howe.He was one of many, but she was executed.When we did an RV trip to New England a couple of years ago, I made my hubby sit on her memorial bench and apologize for his ever so great grandpa.
