I know censuses can have errors, but the birth year you have may be wrong for Susan.

1900 census Ohio Co, KY:

Cummins, Robert H., hd, b June 1863, 36, Md 6 yrs, b KY, KY, KY
" Susan J., w, b Sep 1875, 24, Md 6 yrs, 2 ch, 2 lvg, b KY, TN, KY
" John M., s, b (Nov ?) 1894, 5, b TX
" Cliffie, d, b Apr 1898, 2, b KY

1910 census Ellis Co, TX:

Cummins, Robert H., hd, 46, M (1) 17 yrs, b KY, KY, KY
" Susan, w, 34, M(1) 17 yrs, b KY, TN, KY
" Willie, s, 15, b TX
" Cliffy, d, 12, b TX
" Eva, d, 8, b TX

Note, previous census showed Cliffie/Cliffy b in KY

Next door, I would think there is a relationship here, maybe Josie's first husband was a brother of Robert(?):

Freeman, Sam A., hd, 40, M(2) 11 yrs, b TN, TN, TN
" Josie, w, 35, M(2) 11 yrs, b KY, KY, KY
" Jewel, d, 10, b TX, TN, KY
" Eugene, s, 8, b TX, TN, KY
" Earl, s, 5, b TX, TN, KY
Cummins, Kate, stepdaughter, 14, b TX, KY, KY

Three pages away, is this your Susan's brother?

House, John L., hd, 37 M(1) 15 yrs, b KY, KY, KY
" Rosa M., w, 32, M(1) 15 yrs, 2 ch, 2 lvg, b KY, KY, KY
" Ina L., d, 14, b TX
" Minnie M., d, 10, b TX

Doing a search on the 1880 census for a Gabie Brown, the only one that shows up anywhere in KY is the following, and the House siblings are not listed there. Could not find a Morrison or Luke Brown on 1880 census.

1880 census Rockport, Ohio Co, KY:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Lewis BROWN Self M Male W 45 KY Farmer VA KY
Gabie A. BROWN Wife M Female W 24 KY Keeping House VA DE
Halley BROWN Son S Male W 4 KY VA KY
W. T. BROWN Brother Male W 30 KY Laborer VA KY
Charles ELIOT Cousin Male W 17 KY Laborer VA KY

Doing a search for Susan House, I found the following family, and they also have a son named John -- certainly not proof it is your family, though.

1880 census Sharpsburg, Bath Co, KY:

George HOUSE Self M Male W 37 KY Farm Laborer KY KY
Hanah J. HOUSE Wife M Female W 39 KY House Keeper KY KY
Carline HOUSE Dau S Female W 16 KY House Work KY KY
Nancie A. HOUSE Dau S Female W 14 KY Not Employed KY KY
Sarah B. HOUSE Dau S Female W 12 KY Not Employed KY KY
John T. HOUSE Son S Male W 10 KY Not Employed KY KY
Susan HOUSE Dau S Female W 8 KY Not Employed KY KY
Leana HOUSE Dau S Female W 6 KY Not Employed KY KY
William W. HOUSE Son S Male W 4 KY Not Employed KY KY
Nuton HOUSE Son S Male W 2 KY KY KY

Susan said she was born in Rochester, do you suppose it actually was Rockport, where Gabie and Lewis resided? I would check probate and guardianship records in Ohio Co, see if you can find anything on a House that could be the father of Susan and John. Also, check out Butler Co, where Susan said she was born.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
