Birth: Feb., 1687
Death: Feb. 19, 1766

Husband of Fear Corser Cushman. Ancestor of many Cushmans, Fosters and Pecks. He was a grandson of Mary Allerton youngest Mayflower passenger and the last survivor. As Mary was a daughter of Mayflower passenger Isaac Allerton, Samuel was his great grandson. His grandfather, Thomas Cushman, with his father, Robert, was a member of the group who went to Leiden, Holland, in search of religious freedom. He and his father traveled on the ship Speedwell which left with the Mayflower but it was eventually abandoned and some passengers had to stay behind to make a journey later. Robert and son Thomas eventually sailed on the ship Fortune and arrived in Plymouth about the time of the first Thanksgiving. Robert stayed only a short time and returned to England leaving his son behind in Plymouth. Robert would never return but worked hard as the agent for the residents in Plymouth for the rest of his short life. If it wasn't for Robert and all he did to facilitate the move by these people we wouldn't be able to tell this story today. So in most ways Thomas and Robert Cushman are as much 'Pilgrims' as Mary and the others.
