Thomas Barney Cuming
Birth: Dec. 25, 1827
Genesee County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 23, 1858
East Omaha
Douglas County
Nebraska, USA

First Territorial Governor for Nebraska. He died at a fairly young age while on a visit to Omaha. He was a school teacher in Michigan. He was originally buried on a local farm that was being used as a graveyard, since the town had no official burial site at the time. A year or so after this he was moved to Prospect Hill Cemetery, where he rested for many years. In the 1920's he was moved again to Holy Sepulchre. Omaha has a street named for him.
