I am searching for any family members/descendants of William Cummings that are living in or around the Atchison County area. William was born in Maryland in 1812. He came to Kansas in about 1855, married Sarah Ann Quiett in 1856 and farmed in the Pardee area for years. The little town of Cummings was named for him. He died in 1900 and is buried in the Cummings cemetery. Anyone who has information concerning this family please respond. I am searching for his life prior to arriving in Kansas in 1855. He may have come to Kansas from Pennsylvania.
