Frank W. Cushman
Frank W. Cushman was born near Erie, Pa., on September 17, 1853. At the age of two years he came with his parents to Mifflin, Iowa County, Wisconsin. On March 29, 1874, he was united in marriage to Ida May Basye, there being born to this union eight children, three of whom, Estella Belle, Fredie Roy and Lloyd Garrison, have left this life.
Shortly after his conversion, the deceased became class leader in the Free Methodist church and acted in this capacity for several years. In the fall of 1897 he moved with his family to Evansville, and from there he moved to Taylor, in the spring of 1910. A protracted illness resulted in his death on Wednesday morning, February 28, 1917.
Those left to mourn his loss are his wife and children, Charles, of Taylor; Mrs. Burr Jones, Mrs. George R. Mabie, Mrs. William Crawford, all of Evansville; Harriet of Taylor; his mother, Mrs. Roxy Cushman, of Rewey; and brothers, Bert, of Beloit; George, of Plattevile, and Jeff and Ezra, of Rewey.
The deceased was well and favorably known for his industry and neighborliness. He was a good husband and a kind father; a man of strong convictions, but withal kindly genial and conscientious. His long-drawn-out suffering was sweetned by the faithful, loving care, by day and by night, of his dear ones.
