    Note that Sarah has gained 14 years since 1870.  The age in 1870 was30, and we find in 1900 the age of 60 matches that, and is consistentwith the birth date reported in 1900, May 1840.  The weight ofevidence falls to the 1840 birth date.

    1900 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 24 June, Bayou MetoTownship, District 2, page 3B, Hse/Fam #60

    Notice that the child named James here matches the child Byron in1880.  We can thus say that his name is James Byron.  I have not beenable to figure out the parents of the two grandchildren here.  In1910, we see Athel still in the household, but the Head of theHousehold is now Junius.  Single brother James Byron is still in thehousehold.  Two other Cummings grandchildren of Sarah have also joinedthe household.

    I see that Vennis Cummings is 12 years old, which mean he was bornbefore the 1900 census, so this adds to the mystery about his parentsand family situation.  Vennis' older brother Athel was living with hisgrandmother while Vennis was somewhere else, but his mother hadanother child after that 1900 census, Arvilla who is now only 6 yearsold.  It is a good bet that both the Cummings parents are now dead,since all three children are together in their Uncle and grandmother'shousehold.

    In 1920 Sarah is living with her son Junius (J C), listed under hernickname Sally.  Her son James Byron (listed in 1920 as Byron) is aalso in the household of his brother Junius.

    Again in 1930, we find Sarah (Sallie) in Junius' household, along withJames Byron, and now joined by widowed Oscar.  Find more details inthe Notes for Junius.
