John & Bridget DORRIS Providence 1879
Posted by: Sue Clement Date: October 12, 1999 at 17:40:25

I am looking for anyone who might have info on John DORRIS and his wife Bridget (CUMMINGS). They were married in Providence in 1879, where her name was listed as McCummings. Bridget was born in Ireland, the daughter of Owen Eugene and Ellen (Green) Cummings. She, her mother, and her brothers and sisters - Patrick, James, Michael, Ellen and Annie - emigrated to Fall River MA about
1873/4. Mrs. Bridget Dorris was named in the obituary of her brother Patrick in 1908 and of her brother Michael in 1922, both times as "of Providence." Family stories say that John Dorris was an attorney for (or in) the city of Providence. Any help on this family would be most appreciated. Would love to connect with another Cummings family descendant.
