  1. BulletHenry Wyles Cushman's book "A Historical and Biographical Genealogy of the Cushmans:  The Descendants of Robert Cushman the Puritan, From the Year 1617 to 1855".1  The book is fairly complete through eight generations, counting Robert Cushman of Kent as generation #1. Henry Wyles Cushman also included Cushmans from the ninth and tenth generation who were living circa 1850, but this does not include many people.
