JOSEPH S. CUSHING - At the City Hospital in Huntsvill, Ala., on February 13, 1924, occurred the death of Joseph S. Cushing, following a serious operation. He was nearly eighty-four years of age, having been born April 29, 1840. He served the South with faithfulness and distinction as a member of the 12th Alabama Calvalry, and in late years the reunions with his comrades of the sixties were occasions of great pleasure.
In 1861 Comrade Cushing was married to Miss Lucy A. Henley of Gadsden, Ala., and together they spent sixty-three years of happy wedded life. She died in December 1923, and he survived her only two months. He was laid by her side in Maple Hill Cemetery at Huntsville, wearing the Confederate uniform he loved so well and Confederate comrades attended his burial. He is survived by three sons and four daughters. (Confederate Veteran - Nashville, Tenn., May 1924)
