MY Cummins family line is thru Isaac Marion Cummins brother - Andrew Daniel. They were of the 13 children of Willis W. and Lucinda Turner Cummins. Willis parents were William and Emily Cummins. The Cummins line from this point has met a brick wall and we are not sure of Emily's family name. Wm & Emily were young pioneers from NC that caught the "Alabama Feaver" - making their way to the newly opened territory acquired from the Great Creek Nation settling in the area of what now is Birmingham, Jefferson Co. Alabama. They were there from the 1830 to the 1850 US Federal Census Records. Much information has been acquired from Jefferson Co Records - land records, marriage of their 5 children, etc. They were farmers, members of the Baptist Church, and did not own slaves. During the mid 1850's, most of the immediate Cummins family along with many of the in-laws and other church members moved by wagon train to Attala Co Mississippi. The in-law names that joined them were Willis wife's family - TURNER and His two sisters families - Ellard.
William & Emily Cummins 3 sons mustered into the CSA from the beginning to the end - except for one that did not make it to the end - Daniel H Cummins died from disease in a CSA Hospital in Macon, Miss and is buried there among many other marked "Unknown" graves.
Willis joined for 6 months - the war was not to last more than that - Then mustered once again with son I.M. Cummins into the " Mississippi 11th (Perrin's) Calvary, Company C". Willis 1st son- Wm M- had earlier joined the 30th Mississippi Infantry, Company D - & captured at the Battle of Lookout Mtn TN – died approx 5 weeks later at Rock Island Prison, Illinois - grave is marked #99 in the military cemetery there.
Isaac Marion Cummins Children and following grandchildren have much US military history. And your husband is carrying this with him as did his grandfathers have since the revolution.
I would be happy to share with you any family history that I have and am forwarding this query to cousins in the Isaac Marion Cummins line that can provide more than I.
God Bless You…
