Notes for Abraham Cummings:
Abraham is believed to have been born in New Rumley, Harrison County, Ohio. All records except for the tombstone give his birth as 1819 including all census records. His tombstone gives his birth as 1809. Before 1835, the family abandoned their land in Harrison County and set out for Perry County, where they took land grants in the mid 1830's. The family moved to the point where Perry, Hocking and Athens counties meet. An Abram Cummings married Catherine Essecks in 1848, but no record of her have been found. Supposition is, she died shortly after they were married, possibly in childbirth. After this Abraham moves to Logan County and lives with the family of David Norman, a relative of Marquis Norman who married Abraham's sister, Joanna later on. The Abram found living with the family of David Norman in the Logan County Census of 1850, married Hannah Peterman of St. Mary's, Auglaize County in December of the same year.
