Notes:

        “In his early life he was a journalist in the city, and later he succeeded to the leather business of his father’s firm, Cumingham & Mccormick.  He was a prominent fireman, lieutenant-colonel of one of the militia regiments, and for many years Secretary of the Merchants Exchange Company.  He was a large operator in real estate in New York and Brooklyn, and a man of education and extensive reading.  Although admitted to the bar, and a student of medicine, he never practiced law or medicine.  He was active in church work during most of his like; was interested in benevolent and educational societies, and well known for intelligence, enterprise and public spirit, but held no political office.

      He married June 16, 1831, Sarah Matilda Decker, of New York, who survived him 21 years, dying at her residence in Jamaica, L.I., Jan. 11, 1878.” [McCormick “Family Record and Biography” by Leander James McCormick, Chicago 1896, p.24:]
