      James Rooney (born 1927) told me in 2016: “My dad would take us to the Cummings farm to visit "uncle" Tom Cummings [my grandmother Lucy Cimmings Rooney’s brother] and his two sisters.  As I recall they were single.  They had electricity but no indoor plumbing, and pumped water by hand in the kitchen.  About 1936 oil  was found on the farm and many locations in the area.  They updated the farm house and built a rustic three-hole golf course.  Uncle Tom passed away about this time [early 1940s]—he would have been 80 plus years.  The sisters and he had hired a farm hand and one of the sisters married him, which one I don't know.  We seldom visited the farm after that and after my dad died in October 1941.”
