  • Junius C is living next door to his brother Edwin's son Jerome Frank.In Junius' household we find their mother Sarah J (Sally) and theirbrother James Byron.  Junius is still single.  We now also learn abouta sister of Sarah, also a member of this household.  Enumerated asJunius' aunt, Clarissa A Peters is the widowed sister of Sarah.Unfortunately, this is her married name, so we still have not learnedSarah's maiden name.

    Two nephews and a niece in the household likely indicate that one ofSarah's married daughters and her husband have died, leaving thesethree children, named Cummings.  Athel (listed as Athiel in 1900) wasalready living in his grandmother's household in 1900.

    In 1920, Junius has finally married.  From the age of their oldestchild, it looks like he and Elizabeth married about 1911.  His motherand brother James B are still in his household.  Clarissa A Petersseems to be a sister of Sarah, but she is widowed without bearing anychildren.  We cannot tell the maiden name from this information.  Ihave no clue to indicate who the parents of the Cummings children are.

    They would presumably be the children of one of Junius' sisters whomarried a Cummings.  The oldest, Athel, was in the household of hisgrandmother Sarah J in 1900.  Vennis is not with them, though he wasabout 2 years old at the time, and Arvilla was born since the lastcensus.  So even though her mother does not show up in any of ourfamily groups up to now, she was still having children.

    In 1930, Junius (called June C) is hosting his mother and James Byronbut now his brother Oscar has also moved in.  Oscar is now widowed.

    The ages at marriage indicate that June and Lizzie married in eitherlate 1910 or early 1911, matching the earlier estimate from 1920,based on the age of Ruth.  The enumerator has now demoted James Byronfrom Farmer to Laborer.
