Father: Lieut Gov Thomas Cushing
Mother: Deborah Fletcher
Spouse: Catharine Sewall Pynchon Orne b. 30 Sep 1780 d. 24 Dec 1818

Note: It is unknown if Thomas was actually born at Harvard Square, Cambridge, which was considered a part of Boston.

Saint Peter's reported his burial as 7 Dec 1808. Col Cushing's parents are at Granary Burying Ground, but he is not there. I am unsure if this church has tombs in the bottom, or if he was a outside burial. I tend to think a tomb burial; Catherine (Orne) Cushing-Mack's burial is not found, and this usually leads to a tomb burial.
