Family tradition has it that Calista D. CUMMINGS eloped with
Joseph (?) Flaherty and were married by the Justice of the Peace. His parents had the marriage annulled by the Catholic church when they brought his bride-to-be, Ellen, over from Ireland. Calista gave birth to my gr-grandfather, Abraham Leroy CUMMINGs b. 21 Dec 1875, Columbia Falls. I have not been able to locate any information to connect FLAHERTY. I would appreciate any suggestions as to where to look or if anyone has any information they would be willing to share with me.
