States: Wisconsin: Lafayette
Am looking for any information on James (Big Jim) Cummins (could be Cummings) who immigrated from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Lafayette County Wisconsin near Seymour Township. Born circa 1815 and died 12/22/1857. His 1st wife died giving birth to their 1st child, a girl. The 1st wife's parents took the baby back with them to Winnipeg. Jim entered an ad in Winnipeg newspaper for housekeeper. Mary Mahony answered ad and moved to farm outside Seymour Township with her two sons Dan and Mick (Michael) Mahony. We don't know Mary's maiden name either. Jim & Mary wed and had 3 children of their own, Mary, Johanna, and Thomas. Johanna born 1853, married Robert Keyes 7/5/1888, died 5/4/1932. Any information on Jim or Mary would be greatly appreciated.
