This blog is designed to document my journey into my appalachian roots, continuing back into Ireland and beyond. My main focus is on my maiden name, Cummons, and my mother's maiden name, Malone. Other names in my tree include Tomblin, Workman, Sprouse, McCutcheon, Dalton, Evans, Carroll, and more.

Cummons Family Photo Gallery
Yes, that's me in the center, as much as I may have looked like a little boy! At that time, I was the only grandchild, so there were no little boys available for this "generations" photo. From left to right: William H. Cummons (great grandfather), Robert Alan Cummons (father), Robert Arthur Cummons (grandfather).
My mother and father, before I came into existence. Carolyn Y. Malone, Robert Alan Cummons
My grandfather and grandmother on their wedding day, circa 1953. Robert Arthur Cummons, Nellie Joyce Tomblin
My great grandparents William H. Cummons, Bessie Virginia Sprouse
My great, great grandfather Henry Arthur (Blackie) Cummons
Now, here's a little mystery to be solved: This is a picture of Grandpa Blackie's wife, Anna Bell Davis Now take a look at the picture below: My grandpa insists that THIS is also Anna Bell, but that doesn't add up. Look at the age of the photo, as well as the dress. I would take a guess that this is actually my great, great, great grandmother, Causby Jane Patterson, wife of James Hamilton Cummons! I sure would like to be able to confirm that theory some day!
So there you have it! A simple photographical run down of my Cummons line, as I know it thus far.
