RE: Sarah Ann & William Cummins childtren
Since sending a msg thru findagrave, I ran across your posting on Cummings Family Pedigrees, where I also saw postings by Ann Cummings for her husband whose DNA was done through ancestry (descendants of Gideon Cummins), also one for James B. Cummings who earlier connected by DNA. Recently started working with one of Frank's (Ann's husband) nephews who had just had his DNA done, but I'm not sure if it was done through ancestry or not because his results were not reported in the same way as Frank's which were done five or so years ago. And to make things more interesting, it is my understanding that Ancestry is or has already shut down their DNA program.

Anyway, what we have run across is mention of Alexander 1677 having received a land grant in North Carolina near present day New Bern, which was mentioned in Malachi 1695's will. So we're trying to look at all the family branches that we can. If I'm remembering correctly, Heath mentioned a direct connection to Alexander 1677 through his son Malachi 1692, via his son Malachi II 1721, pr possibly Malachi II's son Joseph 1762. My problem is that I am not seeing the naming patterns that we think we should be seeing which would include Thomas, James, Benjamin, Stephen or Eli. And several researchers have identified a Gabriel, Benjamin, thomas 1754 and Judah 1786 which some connect to Malachi II, and others just show them dangling.

James B. and Gideon show up in Georgia during the early land lotteries. Gideon is believed to have been born in Georgia based on his military record for the War of 1812 where he fought for Georgia, and later won land lotteries based on his residency there. All of which occurred as the Cherokees and other Native Americans were being moved from NC into what is now Tennessee (and possibly Kentucky), and other tribes were being moved west out of Georgia. However, it is hard to track anyone during this period of time because the state and county boundries kept changing.

What it looks like is that we are missing two generations between abt 1700 and 1780. And since surely all the previous generations had more than just one son, they're who I'm looking for!

Thank you for your reply. Will let you know if we find anything interesting.

Sarah Ann & William Cummins childtren
Through DNA testing, our family line is showing a full match to Sarah Anne & William's son Alexander 1677's son Malachi. What we have well documented goes back to Gideon Cummins/Cummings who was born 1795 in Georgia, along with either an older brother or an uncle, James B. Cummings b. 13 Oct 1772 Craven County, NC, who married Nancy Bates. James B. and his family end up in Louina, Randolph Co., AL, and my GGG-Grandfather Gideon lived in Putnam Co., GA, then Harris Co., GA. Because of intermarried connections, James B. Cummings is believed to be the son of Benjamin Cummins/Cummings of Craven Co., NC, and the grandson of John Cummins also of Craven Co., NC. Currently a number of us are working to find a documented connection to what the DNA is showing us. With that in mind, I would very much appreciate learning as much as I can about Sarah Anne and William.

Thank you, and please let me know if I can help you in any way!

allen children and their parents
i am not at the present time able to figure out how far from ann and francis howard i am and exactly where i fit in this family. i am actually looking for the parents of ann allen howard. the only place i have found them is on william howards but no mention of her parents. if you have the information and would share i would greatly appreicate it. one more of their daughter married a howard and i believe one of their sons married sarah howard. i cann't prove this yet. so maybe i am just blowing in the wind but as i said any help would be great.

Hi there,

I saw the message you placed on my great grandfathers' Find-A-Grave site...Tilman Jefferson Oliver.

My name is Virginia Oliver Barnett. Levin Oliver is my ggg grandfather. Hezekiah ( Tilman's father ,Levin's son ), who went to Maury County, Tn instead of going with the rest of the family to Ohio and on to Kentucky. Tilman came here to Searcy, Ar where he is buried.

I live in Searcy. A few years ago, my husband and I visited the Princeton area and the Archive center. If I had seen this message before we came we could have met and had lunch.

Do you have any photos of Levin and his wife?

I don't think I met you Saturday at the cemetery!! Where were you standing in the descendant photo? I was right behind Miles' stone, beside Pat Larkins. I wish I could have met you!!

RE: Sarah Skelderman Cummins
That would be great. I would like to visit the cemetery and get a picture if possible. The book I referred to previously is published by the church and sold in their gift shop. I looked through the entire book and found no reference to Sarah Skelderman at all. I was curious about her husband and her parents burial places. Do you have any idea about them?

Sarah Skelderman Cummins
I believe Sarah Skelderman Cummins is my eighth great-grandmother. I have a book published by Bruton Parish church that lists all of memorials in the churchyard and inside the building. Skelderman Cummins does not appear in that book anywhere so I was wondering where did you get your information about her.

RE: Cummins Rogers cemetary
If I'm not able to find this cemetery would it be possible for you to show me where it is. I have two places to look and then I may have to ask for your help. Muriel Brooks
