WILLIAM ANTHONY CUMMINS, 81 years old, pioneer resident, retired farmer and one of Oklahoma's early day United States Deputy Marshals, died at the home, 405 North Elwood, Thursday night of complications of old age. A native of western Arkansas, Cummins literally grew up with Oklahoma, settling in the Indian Territory 63 years ago. He was commissioned a Deputy Marshal in 1891, serving under the court of Judge Isaac C. Parker at Ft. Smith. Cummins first settled at Muskogee and later at Catoosa, where he lived until moving to Tulsa in 1923. He was prominently identified with early-day law enforcement for many years. He knew all the frontier bad men and in his later years related interesting stories about his experiences. He knew the Dalton boys, the Youngers, Jim French, Bill Doolin and the much-feared Cherokee Bill. Aside from hunting outlaws, he was also at one time or another, a farmer, cowpuncher, bee tender, cotton ginner, baggage man and a host of other things during his 63 years in eastern Oklahoma. Surviving are six daughters, Mrs. Pemmie Malone, Fresno, Cal.; Mrs. Grace Robbins, Catoosa; Mrs. Edna Brasher of Pollock Pines, Cal.; Mrs. Ruby Johnson, Amarillo, Texas; Mrs. Mae Cochran, Catoosa; and Mrs. Rosie Wyrick, Locust Grove; four sons, Dave and Anderson Cummins of Tulsa; Haskell Cummins of Los Angeles, Cal.; and Ralph Cummins of Hollywood, Cal.; and two stepsons, Walter and Leroy Bales of Tulsa. He is also survived by 45 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
