Cummings Family Boys - Roy, Dennis and Robert: All Hanna Old Timers
Cummings - A Family of Old Timers
The three Cummings brothers, Dennis, Roy and Robert have a total service record of eighty-seven years with The Union Pacific Coal Company, a record of which they as well as the Company may well be proud. In fact, their entire lives have been spent in the service of the Coal Company. Their father was an employee of the Company in old Carbon coming to Hanna when the first mine was opened there in 1889. Robert was the first child born in Hanna. The father and another brother lost their lives in the No. 1 Mine explosion. Mrs. Cummings still lives in Hanna.
Dennis, who has a record of thirty-six years of service, began work in 1894 and is now hoist engineer in No. 4 Mine.
Robert has served the Company twenty-six continuous years, except for the time he spent in the Army during the war. His three children are all in school in Hanna. He is an active member of The American Legion.
Roy is now assistant foreman in No. 4 Mine and has been with the company twenty-five years. He is married and has a son and daughter.
The picture of these three “Old Timers” was slipped from an album in Hanna. It, too, dates back a few years. (UPCCEM January 1931)
