W. F. Cummins (1840-1931)
Most often figured as the mule-riding geologist member of the Dumble Survey.
Rode with the Bible in one saddle-bag and a copy of Darwin's "Origin of Species" in the other. He still preached when not collecting fossils.
Worked extensively in the Permian red beds of northern Texas.
