· The placement of Hugh and George Cummings is not proved, but highly likely.
The genealogical record of their Mother, Jane Blair (Endsley) Cummings is well known
And so is that of her Cummings children, Thomas, Sarah and John Blair Cummings. That there was a son, George Cummings, is proved by his being named a
co-executor of Andrew Endsley's will in Stokes County, NC in 1816 and by his being
referred to as "my brother, George Cummings" in Andrew Endsley's will. What is not
generally known is what became of George Cummings after he completed his duties
as co-executor of the will in Stokes County, NC.
Hugh Cummings has never been mentioned in any Family Group Record of the John C.
Cummings & Jane Blair known to date, yet close study of the 1830 Bedford and 1840
Marshall County Censuses, coupled with land plat maps of the area settled by other
members of the extended Cummings/Endsley/Lowry families present an overwhelming
amount of circumstantial or indirect evidence supporting the inclusion of Hugh Cummings within this Family Group Record.
An article researched and written by Donald C. Jeter with an accompanying land plat map also prepared by Mr. Jeter was especially helpful in understanding the relationships, both proved and probable among these extended families. The article is "Land Between Head Springs and Petty's Cave - Mt. Zion," beginning on page 36 of the Summer 1986 issue (Vol. XVII, NO. II) of the MARSHALL COUNTY HISTORICAL QUARTERLY Published by Marshall County Historical Society, Lewisburg, TN 37091.

County TN deed records.
