    • Fayette, Iowa history
      Page: Chapter XXXVII, page 501+ Windsor Twp.
      Text: (regarding establishment of the post office in Hawkeye in 1869, with the late D.D.T. Hull as postmaster.) Thomas Cumming was the successor of D.D.T. Hull as postmaster, and held the office for several years before the town of hawkeye was founded. James Burrell, Peter Burger, J. a. Hull and thomas cumming had Farm homes near the site chosen for the town, but not on t he original location."
      Title: Fayette, Iowa history
      Page: Chapter XXXVII - page 503, Windsor Twp.
      Text: 'Early Settlers:......Thomas Cumming was here in 1865, settling in Windsor at the close of the Civil War." He settled in Hawkeye.

      There has been much confusion between this Thomas, son of John Chambers Cumming and Eunice Graham and Thomas, son of Hance Cumming and Jane Gordon. Both these Thomas's (first cousins) came to Windsor Twp., Fayette Co, IA. Thomas, son of Hance came to Fayette with his Father about 1852, served in the Civil War and died at Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1863, during the Civil War and he was unmarried. Thomas, son of John and Eunice, served in the Civil War from Wisconsin, coming to Hawkeye, Windsor, Fayette Co, IA, AFTER the War ended in 1865, marrying Elizabeth Vallien. His descendants yet live in the Hawkeye area.
