James Sleator Cummings (1819 - 1852):
Soldier


James Sleator Cummings was born in County Monaghan. He joined the army and was killed in action in the Khyber Pass, Afghanistan. His Six Years' Diary reflects his experience as a subaltern in India during that period. It was published posthumously, and a memorial tablet was erected to him in St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin.
