In Reply to: Cumberland Family in UK by Hugh Cumberland of 95

Hello,

I am tracing my husband's family and his mother's mother was a Cumberland. The furthest back I have been able to go is this gentleman:

Worthy John Cumberland, Sr. (son of John Cumberland) was born March 16, 1866 in 3 Dare Place, Aberdare, Wales, and died October 11, 1941 in Nanticoke, Luzerne, PA. He married Susan Ann Truscott on September 25, 1888, daughter of Francis Truscott and Mary Ann Simmons.

More About Worthy John Cumberland, Sr.:
Burial: Unknown, Nanticoke Cemetery.
Immigration: 1888, from England to New York City.

More About Worthy John Cumberland, Sr. and Susan Ann Truscott:
Marriage: September 25, 1888

Children of Worthy John Cumberland, Sr. and Susan Ann Truscott are:
1. John Cumberland, b. March 02, 1889, Hanover Street, d. date unknown, Church Street.
2. William Cumberland, b. December 13, 1890, Hanover Street, d. date unknown, Church Street.

11. Ada May Cumberland is my husband's granmother and we know her line from this point on.

If you have any information on this family I would love to hear from you. Thanks!
