Relative (?) was Abial Cushman, Sr. born 17 Feb 1793 in Thetford, VT and died about 28 Jan 1837 (buried 29Jan) in Cuyahoga, OH. His wife was Tabitha Keyes Cushman born 1805 in Genesee, NY and died 7 Mar 1886 in Collamer, Cuyahoga, OH. They had children Harmon Noble Cushman 1824-1889 and Ellen Cushman Luster 1835-1914 and Abial Cushman, Jr. 1827--??. This is the specific Abial I am trying to trace since the last record of him in Ohio was when a guardianship was established on 12 Nov 1842 at age 15 to end at age 21. There were some real estate transactions after 29 Jan 1837 where someone was supposedly asked to sign for Abial Sr. I can find no record of him after that; however, on 12 Dec 1848 in Montgomery, TN an Abial Cushman, my great great grandfather, married Elizabeth Bryant and in 1850 they appear on the Census in nearby Nashville showing that Abial was born about 1827 in Ohio. They are with my great grandfather W. A. Cushman born 1849. W.A. and Elizabeth Bryant Cushman appear on the 1860 Census across the state line in Christian, KY without Abial but an Abel Cashman born about 1827 in Ohio died of Consumption in Christian, KY on 30 Aug 1856 and I would like to be able to connect him with GGGF Abial Cushman and him with the Abial Jr. previously described. I had thought there might be some record of the guardianship being ended in 1848. So far no luck.
