(Josiah, Elkanah, Thomas, Robert). Son of Josiah and Susanna (Shurtleff) Cushman. Photo of stone at Find A Grave.4896 He had a peculiar and somewhat singular way of prefixing to the name of each of his children the day of the week on which they were born, as follows: Thursday Sarah, Monday Deborah, Monday William, Sunday Ignatius, Wednesday Nathaniel, Sabbath Susan, Monday Andrew, Thursday Robert, Wednesday Alden, Monday Jeremiah. But we have omitted the prefix, as not a part of their names, in giving their families.3192,112
This from Dan Jenkins. In 1773 Job Cushman sold to Plato Turner , an Afro- American ,his dwelling in the Sheep Pasture  at Plimpton.  Later 4 Afro- Americans were granted 94 acres beside that land and  it became a community known as  "Parting Ways " on now Rt 80 to Plympton.
 
Do you know the proper parents of Job,[ Elkanah ]?  Also do you have any ancillary info. on Plato Turner by chance ?
 
Plato was not a free man until after service in the Rev. War as far as I know , so sale of dwelling to him 1773 raises questions  to me .

Note from RCC: This is the only Job that was living in 1773, except for Job, b. 1760 in Stafford,CT with no know death date.
