Misc. Notes
According to Mooar’s Descendants of Isaac Cummings260, “11. JOHN CUMMINGS, (John3, John2, Isaac1) married, Oct. 3, 1705 (recorded in Charlestown), Elizabeth Adams. He died in Westford, where he was an early settler, Apr. 27, 1759. She died Apr. 30, 1759, only three days after. His farm was on Stoney brook. ‘Samuel Spaulding deeded to John Cummings, of Chelmsford, land on Stoney brook, Jan. 19, 1721-2,’ near present railroad station, including land latterly owned by Mr. Geo. B. Dupee and Sarah Cummings. He bought land as early as 1707. His dwelling was probably near Mr. Dupee’s and the Great Elm. He was moderator of the meeting called in the west precinct of Chelmsford, to make choice of a minister, May 2, 1727. He was called deacon then, although the second church was not organized until August following. Rev. E. R. Hodgman (History of Westford to whom as well as to his history this compiler is much indebted), infers that he had been deacon in the first church before this time. He was elected deacon, however, in the new precinct in Dec., 1727. He was moderator of the first recorded town meeting in Westford, Mar. 2, 1729-30, and was chosen one of the first board of selectmen. He appears on the board during 13 years. He was town clerk in 1736.” A list of his children follows.
