John is the son of John Kirk and Elizabeth Underhill Cashow. He was baptized 27 Sept 1818. He married Hester Craig. He grew up in Brookville, and at 18 removed to Brooklyn. He was Master of the Port Of New York under Gov's. John King and Edwin E. Fenton. In 1877 John served the State Legislature of New York State, in First Assembly District. He is remembered for for this patriotic act: Dec 12, 1857 he presented a motion for the erection of a monument from the trustees association to commemorate the more than 11,000 heroic Rev. War. martyrs who perished in the prison ships at the Wallabout, in obscure and unhonored graves in Brooklyn. The monument was built. From 1880 to 1883 he served as Supervisor of the town of Oyster Bay. He worked as an insurance broker for Farragut Fire Insurance of New York. He was a member of the Brooklyn Volunteer Firemen, and the old Cashow hose Co. was named after him. The Brooklyn Eagle reported Oct. 1899 that his will was probated ($9,000.00), proceeds going to his two surviving children, John C. and Phebe Cashow Steenwerth. (Frederick J)
