Michael T. COMYNS was born in Tipperary circ 1830 and died in Cleveland, Ohio USA in 1900. Michael's mother was Ellen COMYNS. I do not know her maden name. Michael first appears in Cleveland about 1865. He was a harness maker. Michael had sevelal brothers and sisters: John COMYNS, David COMYNS, Patrick COMYNS and Norah COMYNS. He also had several children: Anne, John, David and Mary. Anne Comyns married a William PELTZ, and Mary married a Thomas GAFNEY. I believe the name may have been altered to Cummings or Commings sometiMe IN the early 1900's. Patrick COMYNS moved to Illinois by 1900.

Hi Cindy
I have been researching my Comyns relations with an Australian cousin.
I am pretty certain that your branch immigrated to Cleveland around 1893. Louis Sylvester Comyns came over with his widowed mother, Elizabeth, his brother Jonathan Carr Comyns (junior) and several sisters. The eldest brother stayed behind in England.
The family originated in Ireland, although of course there may have been an earlier connection to Scotland.
Please let me know if you would like to exchange information.
