Published in St. Louis Palladium newspaper 12/26/1903:

Mrs. T. J. Cummins, mother of Governor A. B. Cummins, died of pneumonia Tuesday. Gov. Cummins was at the bedside at the last moment. He had been with her constantly since his arrival from Boston, a week ago, until his death. It is less than 10 days ago that Gov. Cummins, while attending a banquet in Boston, received a telegram and announced the serious illness of his mother. He cancelled his engagements to address the meeting and hurried west as fast as limited trains could carry him. It was a race with death, and the governor won, arriving home while his mother was yet conscious. From that moment she seemed to improve and until Monday there were hopes of her recovery. Monday night, however, she grew rapidly worse and expired Tuesday morning at 6 o'clock.
Mrs. Cummins was a descendant from an historic family. An ancestor was a signer of the Mecklenburg declaration of independence. She was a native of Green County, Pennsylvania, and was 77 years of age. Her maiden name was Flenniken.
