The first town meeting was held at Crusoe House, one-half mile east of Crusoe Lake, in April, 1825, and David Cushman was elected the first supervisor.

The first settlers between Harrington's Corners and the old Galen Salt Works were Michael Weatherwax and Job Cushman in 1818. David, son of the latter, married Polly Ann, the eldest daughter of Prentice Palmer, and died in town; his widow married John Gorham, and their daughter became the wife of George Wilson, who settled on the Cushman homestead.

The Tri-Weekly Telegraph (Houston, Harris Co., TX), Fri. 27 Jun 1862, p. 1, c. 5
Houston, June 24, 1862

Editor Telegraph - The officers and soldiers of Capt. Evans' company take pleasure in expressing, through your columns, their grateful thanks to the ladies of this city for the charity and kindness they have bestowed upon us during our sojourn here.

The following ladies, Mrs. Heckle, Mrs. Casswell, Miss Lawyer, Mrs. Robertson, Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Cushman, Mrs. Furgerson, Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Blount and Mrs. Anderson, have done much to alleviate the suffering of our sick, by furnishing them with such food and comforts as they could not otherwise obtain, and without which some of them would have probably died. We hope their kindness and generosity will not be lost upon us; and that upon the sanguine field of battle we will prove ourselves worthy of the attention and respect they have shown us. God bless the good ladies of Houston.
