As a person who grew up in Cummings, sometimes on maps
you will not find it listed it is between Varnville and
Early Branch. It is a farming community. Going through the town there are 2 stores several old buildings and a fire dept. Huggin Oak church of God is in city limits. Mostly
you travel the back roads to find families. Deep Branch
Baptist Church, Mt. Olive Baptist Church are in the vicinity. Most families living there are Freemans, Andersons, Smoak, Cooks, Crews, Crapse, Mixson, Shumans,
Harriots, Dempseys, And some more. Mostly Mixson, Hull, Cook, Anderson, Shuman, and Crews were main families that
settled the area. There use to be a little school in the
woods. There was a sawmill it's location I was told by my
uncle was located behind land I use to own on Henderson
Hwy. There use to be Ulmers Service Station, And Mrs. Lillies grocery store. when I was growing up. People deer hunt a lot in the area. Another family I forgot to mention was Weekley. They have a big farm on Old Saltketcher Road.
Searson another family. There is a book called Both Sides of the Swamp if you would like the excerpt of Cummings I have a copy of that page e-mail me and let me know. Hope this gives you an idea of Cummings. Schaffer family another family and Heape. These families have been there
a long time. I can remember when a lot of the roads were dirt roads and all you seen were corn fields, watermelon fields, soyabean fields, and regular gardens. It's a lovely country side and I'm proud to say I lived there and
my ancestors were from that area.
