Elizabeth Bonython

Elizabeth Bonython, daughter of Richard, married Richard Foxwell in York County, Maine.

Richard Cummings

Richard and Elizabeth Bonython Cummings' daughter Elizabeth married John Harmon. In doing research about the Cummings, you may find two points of confusion: 1) Did John Harmon live in York County or in Massachusetts? and 2) Did Elizabeth Cummings marry her first cousin, John Foxwell, son of her aunt Susanna Bonython Foxwell and her husband, Richard Foxwell. Answers: 1) There were two John Harmons in New England. The one who married Elizabeth Cummings lived in the Saco area of Maine; and 2) Elizabeth Cummings married this John Harmon, but never married her cousin John Foxwell.
