Charles Carlino Cushman was born on 4 March 1838 in New York City to Susan Webb Cushman. His father, Nelson M Merriman, abandoned the family before he was born and he was adopted by his wealthy aunt, stage actress Charlotte Cushman. She changed his name to Edwin Charles Cushman and called him "Ned".
Ned was educated at the US Naval Academy, 1852-56. He married stage actress Emma Conn Crow on 3 April 1861 in St Louis, Missouri. Their sons were Wayman, Allerton Seward, Edwin Charles "Carlino" Jr, Victor Nilsson, and Guy Cushman.
In 1865, Ned worked at the US Consolate in Italy. The family moved back to St Louis before the 1870 US Census and by 1880, Ned was working as an iron dealer in Newport, Rhode Island.
Ned Cushman died of pneumonia, 5 March 1909, aged 71, in Rome, Italy, and was buried with his wife at Mt Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
