Orland Register, Wednesday, 21 March 1917:


Mrs. Chas. Cushman, well-known locally, passed away at her home on the Cushman ranch three miles south east of Newville last Sunday after a prolonged illness. Mrs. Cushman has been in very poor health for some time and the end was not unexpected.
Mrs. Cushman, who was only thirty-four years of age, leaves to mourn her untimely passing, her husband, Chas. Cushman, and five children, the oldest being about eighteen. They are Roy, Catherine, James, Ancil and Mamie. Mrs. Cushman was born and raised in Tehama county, being Miss Verdie May Zumwalt. She was married twenty years ago to Chas. Cushman, well known stockman of the foothill country, and practically all of her married life has been passed at the Cushman ranch this side of Newville. Her death was caused by chronic malaria complicated by tubercular trouble.
The funeral services were held yesterday morning from the family home, Rev. Shapland officiating. Interment was in the private Cushman cemetery a short distance from the home. The Register extends to the bereaved family its deepest sympathy. - Transcribed by E.

Note that Keith Lingenfelter in Tehama County Pioneers states that Verdie was born in MO.
