Revolutionary War Veteran

Captain Solomon Cushman was 6th generation from Robert Cushman, who was a prominent leader and organizer of the
Plymouth Colony, brought from England the earliest recruits and supplies to the wasted and famishing settlement. The Cushman family in New England dates from
the year 1621, the first after the landing of the Pilgrims from the Mayflower.

A century and a half later Solomon Cushman, a descendant of
Robert, born at Plympton, Mass. in 1745, married Sarah Curtis, daughter of Simeon Curtis, at Lebanon, Conn., in 1768, came to Vermont and settled in Tunbridge.
