Gannon / Cummins Family

Please view this genealogy and remember that it is a work in progress as of 03 June 2015. There may be errors in some of the info listed. I try to use solid research methods and analysis with source documentation in my work. The genealogy software that I use to store my research is The Master Genealogist (TMG), which is no longer made and supported unfortunately.


In the genealogy listed below I have tried to remove all individuals who are living, including myself. To remove living relatives, I have not listed recent generations. If I have made a mistake and did include someone living, please contact me and I will remove them. This is easier for everyone because I do not need to "shake the tree" and aggravate anyone because their personal info is available on the web.


This line traces my gggg grandfather, John Commons / Cummins, forward listing his descendants.
