William H. Cushman settled in Portland in 1835. It is not certain where he was born, some claiming that he came from Virginia, while Mr. Burke says that he came from Vermont, and that he served as a soldier in the war of 1812. He sold his farm in Portland in 1837 to Nathanial Norton, taking a new claim near by, where he lived several years, and then went to Oregon. He married Miss Betsey Barnett, the children  of the marriage being: Daniel; Polly, who married Simeon Chaffee, and after his death, Mr. Morehouse; Wallace; Flavie, who married Chauncey Rowe; Hallaoway; John; Madore, who married Miss Hattie Coburn, and David D. all of whom live in Oregon, and Narcissa, who married John Kane, and lives in Iowa.
