Classification: Query
Surnames: Cummings
It's been a while so I forget the origin of the information, but I either found or was given this information:

10 Mar 1892 • Canandaigua, Ontario, New York, USA
Ontario County Repository-Messenger, Thursday March 10, 1892 reads: "CUMMINGS- in Canandaigua, March 6, 1892 Jesse Cummings, aged 72 years".

Also, Jesse Jr - somewhere I saw or intimated the Jesse Jr was using the nickname of Frank. I need to recheck that and make sure it isn't your Francis "Frank." Jesse Jr was married 3 times: Elizabeth "Lizzie" Davenport, Katherine L b.1864, and Kathy Belle "Katie" Wortman b. 1876. I am NOT certain that Katherine and Katie weren't the same person, but circumstantially, it doesn't appear they were.

After 1820, I have Jesse Jr. in Yates Co - Benton, Milo, & Penn Yan. I have death in Penn Yan 15 Feb 1936.

I have 2 jail records (and lots of other newspaper items in FultonHistory .com) for A Jesse - I don't know if they were Jesse Sr or Jesse Jr. I'm making an assumption they were Jesse Jr. They are on Ancestry so I won't repost them here. They were for 1883 and 1887, both for Seneca County being remanded to the Monroe County Penitentiary. I recall reading another article that he lived RIGHT HERE, the town I sit in this second, that he was arrested, I think in Rochester, for a fight when drunk, and that he was a Teamster or something. I've not found any info on him locally since.

The fact still exists I'm most wanting to know where Jesse Sr was born - allegedly Canada 1821. And Diana Elizabeth's surname, b. 1822 Ontario Co, NY. I wonder if she was from another Cummings family, or perhaps she was disowned by family for the marriage and thereby refused to acknowledge the surname. I need to stop in at Ontario County history records soon and see what I can find.
