(Eliphalet, Eleazer, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Robert.) Son of Eliphalet and Elizabeth (Thompson) Cushman. 4546 JAC indicates he may have married.4546 Descendant Gene Majors of Placentia CA has found Horatio & family on 1830 census for Ohio.112 There are Daughters of the American Revolution Associated applications or supplementals associated with this person.4522

His parents were Eliphalet Sr. Cushman & 2nd wife Elizabeth Thompson from Willington, Tolland Co., Connecticut. I added the middle name Elbert to Horatio because the death record of his daughter Elizabeth Cushman Montague gives his name as "Elbert Cushman". This may, or may not, be correct. If Mary Cushman born about 1812 was Horatio's daughter, then Horatio probably married to Eliza Elizabeth Brown about 1811 either in Leeds Co., Ontario, Canada...or else in Niagra Co., NY where he and Nathan Case Brown both purchased land in 1811. Another theory on Ancestry Family Trees is that he married about 1816 in Leeds Co., Ontario, Canada where Nathan Case Brown died in 1825. The latter theory may be correct if Mary Cushman wasn't Horatio's daughter...but this isn't likely because Horatio was probably in Lancaster Co., PA in 1816. Horatio was single living with his father in 1810 Oneida Co., NY. On 29 Nov 1814 Horatio Cushman was a private in Bache's 2nd Regiment, PA Volunteer Militia serving at Camp Marcus Hook, Delaware Co., PA. He can't be found in 1820 census. Records indicate that sons Eliphalet born 1817 & Amariah F born 1822 were both born in Lancaster Co., PA so Horatio may have been in Lancaster Co., PA in 1820...but the 1820 Lancaster county census is impossible to read! His children were: Mary born about 1812 m. Mr. Craighill (Graybill?) NOTE: Mary may, or may not be Horatio's daughter.; Thomas born after 1812, died before 1830; Eliphalet born 1817 m. Hannah Montague; Amariah Fenton born 1822 m. Lydia Clarice Updegraff; Elizabeth born 1825 m. William Montague; Martha S Caroline born 1827 m. Kinsey Tanner; and Lucinda born 1832 m. "George" Adam Nigh. The only known reference to Horatio's place of death is in the book "Robert Cushman, The Puritan by Henry W Cushman 1855, pg. 339. It says he "resided in Royalton, Ohio, and died in 1834". I assume that this is Royalton in Amanda Township of Fairfield Co., OH because his son Eliphalet is listed as LaFayett Cushman in 1850 Amanda Twp., Fairfield Co., OH, pg. 259. The death date of 1834 for Horatio can't be correct for two reasons. He's listed in Ashtabula county tax records from 1826 to 1837 meaning he was still living in 1837. In a biography for his son-in-law George A Nigh who married his daughter Lucinda Cushman born 1832, it says Lucinda's parents both died when she was age 6. This indicates that Horatio died in 1838 which I assume is correct. It also reveals that he went to Fairfield county in 1837 or 1838. He lived in Royalton, and his grandson Thomas who died 1852 is buried in Royalton Cemetery, so it's very logical to assume that Horatio Cushman and wife are also buried in this cemetery.

The identity of Horatio's wife, Elizabeth Brown, was answered when we found obituaries from two of Horatio's daughters. Elizabeth Brown was listed as mother of these two daughters.4565
There are only two known references to her name. The obituary of her daughter Lucinda Cushman Nigh says the parents were Horatio and Eliza Cushman. The death record of her daughter Elizabeth Cushman Montague says the parents were Elbert Cushman and Elizabeth Brown. This is why I call her Eliza Elizabeth Brown. According to Ancestry Family Trees, she was a daughter of Nathan Case Brown 1769-1825 & Susannah Wilber. Most records say she was born about 1795 in PA. I believe she was born in Columbia Co., NY for several reasons. Nathan Brown is listed in 1800 Columbia Co., NY. He's the only one found anywhere who is the right age and has the right number of children to be Nathan Case Brown. Another Nathan Brown, probably an uncle, is listed in 1790 Columbia Co., NY. Eliza Elizabeth's grandfather Benjamin Sr. Brown is listed in 1790 & 1800 Columbia Co., NY. None of these Browns are listed in 1810 and Find A Grave says they moved to Leeds Co., Ontario, Canada about 1800. The related Wiltse family came from neighboring Dutchess Co., NY. Also, in 1810 & 1820 Eliphalet Jr. Cushman (Horatio's brother) lived in neighboring Saratoga and Rensselaer counties in NY. Nathan Brown may have lived in Niagra Co., NY for a short time because he was probably the Nathan Brown who purchased land 11 Sep 1811 in Niagra Co., NY. Horatio Cushman purchased land 30 Sep 1811 in the very same area. This part of Niagra became Erie Co., NY in 1821. In the 1810 census, Horatio was still living with his parents in Oneida Co., NY. Nathan Case Brown isn't found in 1810 USA census which indicates that he probably lived in Canada. According to census records of his children, he was in Canada by about 1800. The Wiltse's were Loyalists and moved from Dutchess Co., NY to Leeds Co., Ontario, Canada probably about 1784. No marriage record has been found and Eliza Elizabeth Brown probably married to Horatio Cushman about 1811 either in Leeds Co., Ontario...or else in Niagra Co., NY.

In the 1850 census, Eliphalet is found on page 14 in Amanda, Fairfield, OH. On page 27 of that same census, there is a listing for Lyman Allen. I have been unable to find any blood relationship between Eliphalet and Lyman, but they must have been pretty good friends, as Eliphalet named his seventh child, Lyman Allen Cushman. Lyman Allen's grandfather, Silas Allen, founded the town of Royalton, Fairfield, OH in 1801.

Thomas Gallagher, mentioned below, was a neighbor of Eliphalet in the 1850 census. According to the bio below, Thomas Gallagher went to IL in 1835 to buy property for his sons. Thomas' son Jacob Gallagher's third child was born in Holland, Shelby, IL. This is very likely one of the reasons that Eliphalet moved his family to Holland, Shelby, IL around 1855. Perhaps Eliphalet moved with one of Thomas' other sons. Eliphalet's 3 sisters had moved to Wyandot County, OH by this time; I'm not sure why he chose to move to IL rather than Wyandot County, OH.

"Sharon Sue (Cushman) Bacon age 64, died unexpectedly, 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, February 22, 2012 in I.U. Health Hospital, Lafayette. Sharon died as a result of brain hemorrhage. She was born in Williamsport, November 29, 1947 daughter of the late Albert ‘Peck' and Kathryn Stokes Cushman. She had been married to John Bacon and he preceded her in death. She was a lifetime resident of the Newtown area. Sharon was a proud graduate of Richland Township High School in 1965. She had been employed by Dri-All Driers and Emerald Acres in New Richmond. Sharon loved the farm life and enjoyed being a part of the Richland Township Farming Community. She considered herself just one of the ‘boys'. Sharon retired from Clarian-Arnett Health Systems where she was a medical records coordinator for eight years. Sharon had a passion for music. For 45 years served as pianist/organist for her church in Newtown where she also served as the long-time choir director. Under her leadership, dramatic Christmas Cantatas, Easter Services, Veterans Day services as well as her normal direction could move a congregation to tears. She leaves a legacy which will be difficult to match. She was a lifetime member of the former Newtown United Methodist Church, now the Newtown Community Church. For 50 years Sharon played for over 100 funerals and 120 weddings for family members and friends. She had also belonged to LA Chorale Music Club, Quigle-Palin American Legion Auxiliary. Sharon's quick wit and dry sense of humor have long been a fixture in the Newtown community. She is a legend, her stories will be exchanged for years to come. To know her was to love her, she will be sorely missed by all. Survivors are: Daughter, Teresa Vaughn and Son, Seth (wife Shi) Bacon both of rural Wingate. Her companion William ‘Bill' Robinson, Newtown. Sister: Donna (George) Deel of Hillsboro. Brother: Donald Cushman of Thayne, WY. Her four special grandchildren: Kaley and Luke Vaughn, Bella Marie and Scott Johnathon Bacon. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents and sister Janet in 1963.
