Gilbert H. Cummings is the son of Ebenezer Cummings and Jane Harris. He was born 12 Jul 1827 in Galena, Jo Daviess, Illinois (or possibly Three Rivers, Quebec, Canada). He died in May 1867 at age 39 in Stockton, San Joaquin, California.

On 30 Jun 1850/1852, he married Charity Jane Barzee in Galena, Jo Daviess, Illinois. She is the daughter of James Woodard Barzee and Elizabeth Whiteham. She was born 6 Sep 1830 in Halderman, Ontario, Canada and died 19 Oct 1901 at age 71 in Heppner, Morrow, Oregon.

Children of Gilbert H. Cummings and Charity Jane Barzee:

  1. Emma Calista Cummings was born 6 Sep 1851 in Galena, Jo Daviess, Illinois (or possibly Sacramento, Sacramento, California).
  2. George Cummings was born in 1854 in Galena, Jo Daviess, Illinois.
  3. Viola May Cummings was born 3 Jan 1859 in Breckenridge County, Kansas. She is a twin to Volney.
  4. Volney Jay Cummings was born 3 Jan 1859 in Breckenridge County, Kansas. He is a twin to Viola.
  5. Harrietta Idaho Cummings was born 3 Oct 1862 in Dallas, Polk, Oregon. She is a twin to Harrison.
  6. Harrison Columbia Cummings was born 3 Oct 1862 in Dallas, Polk, Oregon. He is a twin to Harrietta. He married Emma Haire. She was born about 1866 in Oregon.

Notes

Some sources list Emma's birth as 1841, but this is some 9 to 11 years before her parents' marriage.

Charity's birthplace is given as Halderman, Ontario. We know of no such place. There is, however, a Haldimand, Northumberland, Ontario as well as a Hadimand County, Ontario. Her aunt Betsy was known to be living in Northumberland County, Ontario in the 1851 census. I suspect that Charity's birthplace is, in fact, Haldimand, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada.

 

We are actively seeking more information on the individuals listed here (and their descendants). If you have any additional information, photographs or documents to share: please e-mail me.
