A daughter of John and Hannah (Taylor) Boynton.216 She was "yet living" in Wiscasset ME when HWC published his Cushman genealogy.112 Note that sermon delivered at the time of her death says she was exactly 88 years old at the time of her death. That would put her birth at 1771. And, and I do not find a son named Daniel, who is also mentioned in that sermon, so it is possible that we have two different Hannah Cushmans here? As a placeholder, I note there is an extensive biography and eulogy for Mrs. Hannah Cushman at: http://www.archive.org/stream/sermonpreachedin00me...hedin00merr_djvu.txt217 It tells us that she had been a professor of religion for about sixty-five years. She was widowed early, with two orphaned children. She left Edgecomb and moved to Wiscasset. Twenty five or thirty years before her death, an epidemic entered her family which proved fatal to a son about twenty years of age. She followed the remains of that son to the grave, while another son (Rev Daniel Cushman of Warren) lay dangerously sick in the house.217 Photo of stone at Find A Grave.212

Who Was David Quimby Cushman?
By Arlene Cole 
       David Quimby Cushman: Newcastle residents who are interested in history are familiar with David Quimby Cushman and his History of Ancient Sheepscot and Newcastle, but who was David Quimby Cushman? David Quimby Cushman was born in Wiscasset, Dec. 2, 1806, according to the Annals of the Town of Warren by Cyrus Eaton. His parents were Kenelm and Hannah (Boynton) Nutter Cushman. Fannie S. Chase mentions David Cushman’s family several times in Wiscasset in Pwnalborough. His younger brother, Sidney Beaman Cushman, became a medical doctor and lived much of his life in Wiscasset. His younger sister, Sarah Spring Cushman, married, second, Sendol B. Munger and went with him to India as a missionary.
      Cushman, in his book, writes concerning his early days, “The trees which were first planted on the farm where I was born, in Wiscasset, were in existence in the days of my boyhood…” His farm may have been near the river. Chase speaks of “Cushman’s Point” and during the War of 1812, tells of men sent to guard Cowsegan Narrows as British ships were thought to be coming up through Back River. The men “crowded into the workshop for Kenelm Cushman who lived there.”
        Chase mentions that David Quimby was one of the early teachers in Wiscasset in 1795. The Registry of Deeds at Wiscasset refers to him in 1803 as a schoolmaster and again in 1807 as a “gentleman”. It seems, with his name, that he is almost surely the person who David Quimby Cushman was named for in 1806.
        Wiscasset voted in 1805 to build two schools, one in the north district and one in the south district. It was in the school in the south district that David Cushman is presumed to have started his education. The Rev. Hezekiah Packard came to Wiscasset to preach in the Congregational Church in 1802, and stayed until 1830. Besides his duties as minister, he kept a “boarding-school” for the purpose of fitting boys for college. One of his students was David Cushman. Cushman graduated from Bowdoin College in 1830 and from Andover Seminary in 1834. He was ordained as an evangelist in Millville, Massachusetts in August 1836. He accepted his first church at Boothbay in February 8, 1836.
     While at his church in Boothbay, the Rev. Cushman met with others at a church meeting in 1839 in Newcastle where there was a discussion on the dismissing of a Mr. Sewall. The Rev. Enos Merrill was chosen Moderator and the Rev. D.Q. Cushman of Boothbay was chosen Scribe.
      The Rev. David Cushman married Emeline H. Sewall (b. 1810) of Bath on Feb. 13, 1838. They had one daughter, Emeline Augusta Cushman, who was born about 1841.
      Cushman arrived in Newcastle on Saturday, October 26, 1844, according to what he wrote in his book, and “the next day being the Sabbath, he commenced his public labors by preaching.” He had preached in Richmond the year previous and, in Newcastle, came to the Sheepscot Church. As the Congregationalists owned but one-half of the church, and had preaching one-half of the time, the intervening Sundays Cushman spent in Bremen where he preached about eight years and then he supplied the church in Walpole two or three years. He remained in Newcastle 12 years, and on Oct. 27, 1856, preached his last sermon there.
      While in Newcastle, Cushman was elected to the Superintending School Committee for the years 1846 – 1851. On April 5, 1852, he was elected a Supervisor of Schools instead of a Superintending School Committee member, and held the position for three years.
      In 1857 the family moved to Warren where on May 30 Cushman was installed as pastor of the Congregational Church there. He appears to have been popular as in 1858 on Sun., July 4, 25 members were admitted to his church. Cushman organized The Band of Hope in 1860. This was a group of temperance society young people. William H. Hodgman was chosen its first president. It was William H. Hodgman who, later, married Cushman’s daughter Emeline Augusta, on June 13, 1865. The group celebrated the holidays with their band and speeches. One 4th of July they celebrated with a musical festival. There were “speeches and sentiments” followed by refreshments including ice cream. Festivities ended with a $70 display of fire-works in the evening.
      On the 4th of July in 1863, 500 people gathered to hear any news of the terrible battle of Gettysburg and the siege of Vicksburg. It was July 7th before they heard the news of the outcomes.
      Cushman became unpopular with some of the members and on Aug. 23, 1863 he “retired” from the Warren Congregational Church. Eaton writes that “some of his society, partly from his decided stand in the Union cause, had become dissatisfied, and granted his admission Aug. 20th.”
       The Rev. Cushman comments in writing his book that “this history as far down as the year 1808 was written prior to the year 1863.” This implies he had much of his book completed, but not all of it, by the time he left Warren. It is a little unclear where he went immediately, after Warren. Did he come back to Newcastle to finish his book?
       In The Blackstones and Their Indian’s Paradise, E. Joshua Lincoln writes, “Mr. Cushman boarded with (Ephraim) Clark for a while as he worked on his book and was driven by Clark as he went to other parts of the town to gather notes.” There is nothing said about whether this was before or after Mr. Cushman’s stay in Warren. David Quimby Cushman had his book published by E. Upton & Son, Printers of Bath in 1882. By then Cushman was 76 years old.
        The couple moved to Bath, for it was in Bath on March 27, 1886, according to the Vital Records, Vol. 2, published in Rockland, that Emeline H. Cushman died. Records say that Cushman went to live with his daughter in Warren, and died there on Oct. 13, 1889 at the age of 82 years, 10 months and 11 days.
