Photo is of John Francis Cushman, keeper of the old Scituate lighthouse. John Francis Cushman lived at Scituate Light longer than anyone else. He moved into the Cottage as keeper in 1904 and stayed as keeper and caretaker until 1937. Newspaper articles were found that describe Captain Cushman as he fought with other captains who would not let him fulfill his role as harbor pilot. During the reconstruction of the utility wing this fall evidence of the store Bernice Cushman operated in the twenties and thirties was discovered. The name Roy was found carved into a wall stud and the 1920 census established that this was likely a Roy Spear who was related to the Captain through marriage.
