Desire to See Father's Grave Supposed Cause of Spectral Visit
Lancaster, PA. July 19. It has become known that Miss Bessie Cummings, who was found by the caretaker of the deserted Presbyterian Church at Churchtown in a starving condition, is a first cousin to Francis Bowes Sayre, Presdient Wilson's son in law.
Her octogenarian mother, Mrs. Catherine Cummings, of New York, formerly of Flatbush, widow of Dr. James L. Cummings, a wealthy physician of that place, has been notified of the finding of her daughter, who left home June 9.
It is believed it was a desire to visit her father's grave at Churchtown that prompted Miss Cummings to take the trip.
