    Sourced information about this Thomas Cushman is summarized in several publications. The earliest is: "A Grandson of Elder Thomas Cushman and Some of His Descendants", NEHGR Vol 72, 1918, p14. (Contact manager for others.)

    A compilation of the information from these publications includes:
    Thomas Cushman (Thomas, Thomas, Elder Thomas, Robert) was born probably born at Lebanon, Connecticut about 1705, and died after 1768, last known residence New Providence, New Jersey. He married about 1728/29, Mary ___, and secondly at New Providence, New Jersey, 17th June, 1764, Susannah Johnson, married by Rev. Jonathon Elmer of the New Providence Presbyterian Church. He had removed from Lebanon to Elizabeth, New Jersey prior 1752 when his youngest child was born there.

    The first seven children by his first wife were born at Lebanon, New London County, Connecticut (Barbour, p. 49), and baptized at Lebanon First Church (Records at Connecticut State Library). The last child, Isaac, was born at New Providence.

    Oliver Cushman, born 24 November 1729, baptized 11 February 1730
    Sybil Cushman, born 7 April 1732, baptized 23 April 1732
    Rhoda Cushman, born 4 February 1733-4, baptized 24 March 1734
    Mercy Cushman, born 23 October 1734, baptized 6 January 1736
    Mary Cushman, born 16 May, 1737, baptized 19 June 1737
    Thomas Cushman, born 19 December, 1739, baptized 9 March 1740
    Sarah Cushman, born 6 November 1743 [baptism not yet found in New London records]
    Isaac Cushman, born 16 July 1752 in Elizabeth, New Jersey

    (There may also have been a child, Solomon Cushman, whose birth was not listed in town records, but presumed by one researcher because he was baptized with Rhoda, 24 March 1734 at Lebanon.)

    Thomas Cushman was a constable at Elizabethtown "46/52" (Genealogical Mag of New Jersey 28:48 & 96)

    Thomas Cushman was the administrator of his son Oliver's estate. The administrator's bond was 19 June 1759, and inventory of the estate of Oliver Cushman "of the borough of Elizabeth and Co. of Essex and Province of Eastern New Jersey Carpenter," was dated 15 Aug. 1759, (Essex Wills of New Jersey, vol 1757-1759, p 2623-2626)

    Elizabeth Town and New Providence are about 16 miles apart. It is therefore likely that Thomas moved to New Providence before his 1764 marriage there.

    Thomas Cushman was included in a list of members of the Presbyterian Church at New Providence as of 5 Jan 1768. (Records of Paster Jonathan Elmer, 1763 - 1793, The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, vol 19, p. 94.)
