Birth and death data from "The Genealogy of the Cushing Family "
(An account of the Ancestors and Descendants of Matthew Cushing, who came to America in 1638)

First Edition, 1877, by Lemuel Cushing, pp. 109, 197

"Genealogy of the Needham Family"
Thomas Cushing, M.D.
"Father of Lt. Frank Cushing; The Lt. Cushing who sank the rebel ram Albemarle was another cousin."
The claim that Enos fathered a Frank is curious, as it is not supported by the Cushing genealogy.
Since Thomas Cushing, MD, likely was the son of Enos, I assume that Hawley Needham incorrectly
annotated his copy of the work.
