As you already know, "Mings" is not a very common name. My understanding is that its origin is Scottish, from the Clan Menzies, which is supposedly pronounced MINGus. I know that the farthest back I can go is to Rev. Jesse Daniel Minges, my g-g-g-grandfather, b. 1795. The name "Mings" or "Minges" or "Minnes" or such does not have anything to do with Cummings, I believe.
