Joseph purchased in 1707 from Phillip Turner a tract of land at Henchman's Corner in the South Parish of Scituate, upon which the houseof the late Dr. Heyward Warren Cushing stands (1936). Joseph built a house uponthis tract when he married, and a corner stone of this first house is imbeddedin the lawn on Dr. Cushing's estate. The original house was enlarged by his son, Deacon Joseph, Jr., and later it formed the ell of a large house built by thelatter's son George.
