James Cummings, 84, well-known resident of Hydeville, and a former resident of Rutland, died last night at 9 o'clock at the home of his sister, Mrs. M. O'Day, with whom he had made his home since he moved to Hydeville about 25 years ago.

He was born in Ireland and came to the United States when he was nine years old. He represented the town of Castleton in the state Legislature for four years and served as postmaster of Hydeville, besides holding various village offices.

Mr. Cummings was a member of Leavenworth post, G. A. R., of which he had been past commander, and had been affiliated with the Fair Haven council, Knights of Columbus.

Besides his sister, he is survived by a number of nephews and nieces.
