C H Cummings



Charles Henry Cummings (1823-1902) and his wife Mary Ann (Cole) Cummings (1824-1906) sailed from Massachusetts to San Francisco, arriving in April of 1850. The Cummings with their two sons settled in Sacramento. Charles worked for the Central Pacific Railroad and became local treasurer of the Southern Pacific Company while also secretary of F&M Savings Bank and secretary-treasurer of Capital Gas Co. Very sadly their 15-year-old grandson, by Quincy Cole Cummings, and namesake of Charles Henry Cummings, was one of those who perished at the Stanford-California Big Game in 1900 when the roof of the Pacific Glass Works, where many young spectators had gathered to watch the game, collapsed under their weight.
