Cummings, George W. born 8 Oct. 1811 in New York State and married in 1833 in Michigan. He was baptized into the LDS Church in1841. He and his wife had a large family with two children born in Michigan, one in Indiana, one in Iowa and three in Illinois before his enlistment in the battalion. He was mustered into Co. E of the Mormon Battalion in July 1846 as a Pvt. and marched to Santa Fe. Here he was assigned to Capt. Brown's sick detachment and marched to Pueblo in present day Colorado as described above. In May of 1847 the sick detachment marched by way of Ft. Laramie to Great Salt Lake arriving 29 July 1847; Church leaders decided since these soldiers' year of service had expired so they were un-officially released. He returned to the Mormon camps on the Missouri River and learned that during his military absence two of his young children had died. He remained at the Missouri River three or four years, with a daughter born in December of 1848, a son in September of 1850 and another son in September 1851. Before leaving for the West two more children died in Iowa and Illinois. In 1853 he and his wife were living in Juab County at Nephi where children were born in 1853, 1854, 1856 and 1858. In 1860 he was among the first settlers of Millville in Cache County where he died 12 July 1887 and was buried at Millville, Utah. He was not included on Daniel Tyler's "Surviving Members of the Battalion" list published in 1881.
