History of Carroll County.
CUSHMAN, Josiah B. (deceased).— Fifty years 
ago the greatest conflict this country will ever 
know, was precipitated upon the people. 
Brother was pitted against brother. Thousands 
went forth to battle for what conscience 
dictated. At this distance it is difficult for the 
present generation to appreciate what the victory 
cost the country, for all did not die upon 
the battle field, nor from the immediate effects 
of exposure. The true cost of the war can 
never be given, for countless lives were shortened, 
and as many homes laid desolate because 
of premature deaths. Some of the bravest veterans 
of this mighty struggle have passed away, 
especially In Carroll county, who might still be 
with their loved ones had they not been 
prompted by a sense of duty and true patriotism 
to offer up their health and strength and risk 
their lives in the cause they loved. One of those 
who are tenderly remembered not only as former 
soldiers, but for civic virtues as well, is the 
late Josiah B. Cushman, for many years associated 
with the history of Mt. Carroll. 
The birth of Josiah B. Cushman occurred in 
New York state, October 25, 1833, he being a 
son of Joseph apd Persis (Philips) Cushman. 
The father was born in Vermont, Jauary 28, 
1800. Growing up in his native state, Josiah B. 
Cushmau received but scanty educational advantages, 
but made the most of what he had, 
and was ever willing to learn from experience 
and observation. In June, 1853, he came to 
Illinois, locating first in York township. At 
one time he was associated in business with 
a partner, under the name of the Thompson & 
Neal Machine Works, and transferred this plant to Mt Carroll. Later he went to Harvey, 111., and worked there for a couple of years, when he returned to Mt. Carroll, and worked In the village until his retirement several years prior to his death, which event occurred October 3, 1910, when he was seventy-seven years old. In 1864, he enlisted from York township, in the One Hundred and Forty-sixth HHnois Volunteer Infantry, and served faithfully until the close of the war. He was on guard at Springfield when President Lincoln was assassinated, and as he held the rank of sergeant, participated in the funeral of the martyred president. His commanding officer being Captain Lengle. On June 2, 1866, Mr. Cushman was united in marriage with Ellen A. Tomlinson, daughter of Charles and Eliza (Atherton) Tomlinson, natives pf New York state. Mr. Tomlinson came to Illinois in 1836 or 1837, and was a farmer until his death, in 1!)01. his wife dying in the same year. Mrs. Cushman has one sister, Mrs. William Neal, of Mt. Carroll. Mrs. Cushman was educated in Mt. Carroll, and was a teacher for a short time prior to her marriage. When she was only fifteen years old, she joined tie Christian church, and has continued faithful to its teachings ever since. Mrs. Cushman owns forty acres of land, and a beautiful residence, the whole Vfnag a very valuable property. From the time the Grand Army of the Republic had a post in his vicinity, Mr. Cushman was one of Its enthusiastic members, and enjoyed meeting his old comrades. From the time lie voted for John C. Freemont for president, Mr. Cushman was a Republican. For years he was greatly interested in temperance work, and exerted a beneficial influence with regard to this and other questions looking towards a moral uplift. He was a man widely and favorably known, and had many friends throughout the country of which for so many years he was a useful and prominent resident.
