Howard Bass Cushing
Birth: Aug. 22, 1838
Delafield
Waukesha County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: May 5, 1871
Whetstone
Cochise County
Arizona, USA

Frontiersman. One of four famous Cushing brothers of Civil War fame (brothers Alonzo, William, and Howard all gained fame for heroic exploits). He was killed while on a scout in southern Arizona during the "Cochise War." A recent theory of one scholar has him the victim of an intentional ambush led by Nehdni Apache chief "Juh" and his followers in the Whetstone Mountains near present-day Sierra Vista, Arizona. He was perhaps the most famous "indian-fighter" of his time in the Arizona Territory. (bio by: Robert Schaller)
