He was graduated at Har. Coll 1712, and ordained at Dover, 18th September, 1717. "March 25th, 1769, the Rev. Jonathan Cushing, senior Pastor of this church departed this life, in the 79th year of his age, and 52nd of his ministry, having sustained the character of a grave and sound preacher, a kind, peaceable, prudent and judicious Pastor, a wise and faithful friend."
The house where Mr. Cushing lived, on Pine-Hill, was standing in 1810; it stood about 6 rods N.W. of the well on the land now owned by Wm. Osborne."
