Laura: I checked my Cushman genealogy data base and find one possibility: Henry Warren Cushman b 20 Feb 1859, Fairhaven, Bristol Co. MA, d. 12 May 1904, Achushnet, Bristol Co. MA married Frances Russell Eldbridge, 29 Oct 1885, Acushnet, Bristol Co. MA. She was born 1 Apr 1860, MA. They had daughters named Ruth, b. 27 Oct 1889, and Frances E b. 10 Oct 1895. Also, sons Henry Eldrige Cushman b 7 Sep 1886 and Emery b 24 oct 1887, d 15 mar 1955, though the names of these two sons do not appear in the photos. All these children born in Bristol Co. MA. I also have children for Henry Eldridge and Emery so there may be living descendants. Not sure how these photos would have found their way to Alabama, though. No trace of a Sybil Lewis Murray in this family as far as I can tell.

Lane Dwinell, 90, New Hampshire Governor Published: Saturday, March 29, 1997, New York Times.
Lane Dwinell, a two-term Republican Governor of New Hampshire in the 1950's and later a member of the Eisenhower and Nixon Administrations, died on Thursday at his home in Hanover, N.H. He was 90. The cause was heart failure, a relative said. Mr. Dwinell, Governor from 1955 to 1959, was known for his shrewd application of accounting and budgeting principles to state government and for using some of the savings he achieved to pay raises for state employees, seeking to reduce what he called an excessive and costly turnover of state employees.
After being a businessman in Lebanon, N.H., for many years, he got his start in politics by being elected to the town budget committee, then worked his way up to president of the State Senate and House Speaker before becoming Governor. In 1959, he was nominated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower as Assistant Secretary of State for Administration and served until 1961. He returned to the family-owned clothing-manufacturing business, Carter & Churchill. In 1969, he was appointed by President Richard M. Nixon to lead the Agency for International Development and served until 1971. Mr. Dwinell graduated from Dartmouth College. His wife, the former Elizabeth Cushman, died in October.1521
