My GGGF appears on the 1850 Census in Nashville, TN as Aliol Cushman, a cigar maker from Ohio, with his wife Elizabeth (Bryant) b. Virginia abt 1824 and son William A. b 1849. In 1860 Census Elizabeth and William A. appear across the state line in Christian County, KY with no husband. I found a death record in Christian County, KY for Abel Cashman, a cigar maker from Ohio, who died of consumption in 1856. The death record lists his father as Wm H. Cashman. I am sure the "Cashman" name is a mis-recording and I wonder about the Wm H. as well. Could they have recorded his son William A. as the father??
Does anyone have any information about an "A****" Cushman born in Ohio around 1825 who ventured south to Tennessee?
