While searching online for more of those seemingly never-ending links to our ancestors, I came upon a warm and perceptive article about our dear Abbott. 

Abbott L. Cummings was a very humble person... You'd hardly ever hear him say much about himself... He was much more interested in listening to the person, or persons, he was speaking with!

It is so good to know more about this charming man, and this piece gives us a look into Abbott's life that we don't hear about... It brings the reader into Abbott's personal life and confirms what a special person he was, in more areas than we knew about... In reading this piece, you will also learn more of the man who loved historical buildings and their lineage... 

I asked the publisher [of this article] if we could have his permission to put it on the Family website... I wanted all of the Family to be able to enjoy this story! The publisher very kindly said yes, as long as it was presented in the same format as it is on their website!  I then asked Abbott if he would mind if I put the article online and he gave me his consent...
