?? CUMMINS married ??, children:

  1. Mary Ellen Hilda (Molly) Cummins (born 20 May 1874 in Agra),

(Mary Ellen Hilda CUMMINS became legally known as Mary Ellen Hilda Preswell as her mother remarried a Mr Presswell after the death of her father.  Her mother then had more children with Mr Preswell.)  At Agra on 10 August 1891 Mary married Francis William McDERMOTT who enlisted in the 2nd Bn. Lenister Regiment on 7 November 1884


?? CUMMINS, married ?? PRESSWELL, children:


(I think my grandmother Mary Ellen Hilda (Molly) CUMMINS, born 20 May 1874 in Agra, India was related in some way to the GILROY'S and this may help in indentifying if she is of the same family as the Perth Cummins.  She and her husband Francis William McDermott migrated to Australia and landed in Melbourne.  Subsequently they moved to Adelaide.  I think they may have migrated around 1908 - 1910, but am not sure.  Molly had 14 children, but I only know the names of 5, 

  1. Frances McDermott (Frank), 

  2. Wilfred McDermott (Bill), 

  3. Terence McDermott (Terry), 

  4. Eileen McDermott

  5. Maurice McDermott (my father)

Eileen had a twin who died when very small in Burma.  As they were railway people, they had their children in different places in India and I am finding it very difficult to trace records.  At the moment, that is all I know of my ancestors. Best Wishes Alice McDermott   ( )
