    Many of the direct lines were blacksmiths, and in most families this trade passed from one ge neration to another. The most recent one was my Grt grandfather Moses Genereau alias James Cu mmings. He was born 13 Sep 1855, in Thurlow, Hastings, Ontario, Canada. As a young man he wor ked in the lumbering trade , but in later years followed his fathers trade of being a blacksm ith. In or about 1895 he came to Spring Cove New York with his family and worked at his tra de. He had 14 children, one of these was Charles A. Cummings born 16 Jan 1875 died 8 Jun 1951 ,[born Genereau but changed name abt 1895]. There is some question about his birth date, cens us records and immigration rec indicate 1875 his head stone is marked 1870 but his parents we re not married until 1875 in Catholic church Bellville, his mother was 16 when married so wou ld have been only 10 if his birth date was 1870. Charles and his wife, with their children C harles, Ralph, and Clifford. All became citizens in 1904 and they were using the name Cummin gs. At a young age he worked and learned the trade with his father at Spring Cove. We hav e a excellent photo of Charley with his leather apron just about to shoe a horse. This migh t well have been in Spring Cove.
    Wednesday 27 Jun 1899 he took time off and got married to May Etta Locery born 29 aug 1879 a nd lived until 31 Mar 1936. her parents were William John and Louise Prieur Lacey, from Ontar io Prov. Canada. We are very lucky to have a picture of them, taken a few years after the wed ding. They are seated in the photo and the lady in the center is Mammie Hanley a friend. The y had a three children born in Canada, and ten born in the Waverly area of Franklin Co., Ne w York. for a total of 13. This Cummings family has been very difficult to put together. Ou r branch while having many of the same names has nothing to do with the established Cumming s in this country. Our branch started with James Cummings, who in reality was Anthoney Mose s Genereau. Charles Cummings remained close to his siblings and the Newspaper articles list t he many visits from his sisters and brothers

    at Tupper Lakes Saturday and Sunday, Mr. Cummings bulng employed there. Miss Lila
    Christian accompanied them.
