Gospel preacher listed on Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers of 1899.

Cash preached the funeral service for Martha Walters in 1895. He was living in Kansas City at the time.

Another service in 1874: "Elder H.R. Cash was called to conduct the funeral services, using as a foundation for his remarks the first part of the fifth chapter of Paul's second letter to the church as Corinth, being appropriate for the occasion: "For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven," A synopsis of the discourse ran as follows:

Israel's desire, while sojourning in the wilderness, was to reach the land of promise, that God had sworn to give unto them; to cross the Jordan, beyond which lay the land flowing with milk and honey, wherein they should find a place of rest from all their wearisome travels, the Holy city, the New Jerusalem, with its temple supplanting the old tabernacle of Moses while in the wilderness, which was moved from place to place at the bidding of God. To this temple Israel came to worship. So it is with man today- he groans being burdened with sin and the conflicts of life. He desires to depart and go hence. Since this tabernacle of clay is subject to all the ills of life, he desires to reach the land of eternal rest, not to be unclothed, but to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven. Paul says while we are at home with the body we are absent from the Lord, but when Absent for the body we are present with the Lord. Hence we look for a city which is out of sight to mortal vision, but seen with the eye of faith through his word, which says, "I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am there ye may be also. In my father's house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you." Seeing this mansion or house or rest is eternal in the heavens, whose maker and builder is God, why should we mourn to drop this, our house of flesh, and go to dwell eternally there, or mourn departed loved ones, God, who doeth all things well, is the receiver of the departed spirit and will give unto all as he wills while the body of the loved companion of our esteemed friend, A.J. Goodhue, is mouldering back to its mother dust, from whence it came, the spirit has taken its flight from the sorrows and cares of this world's wilderness to the spirit's land, to God who gave it, where no dread disease shall ever come. Oh, how good is God in come. Oh, how good is God in his greatness, and great in his goodness unto us. Jesus stands just beyond the river or Jordan of death, to stretch forth his hand as to a sinking Peter, and his loved one welcome. As Israel strove to enter the promised lad, so must we.

Husband, I must be gone,
Prepare thou to meet me,
Cold the stream, but beyond
Stands Jesus to greet thee.
Mother, the time is come,
The trump sound to call me,
Be thou faithful now, and then
Death's grasp will not appal thee.
Sister, thy love has ever been
To me most kind and tender,
But God is love, and we have seen
To Him thy service render.
Brother, what shall I say to you?
My life is ebbing fast;
Embrace the cause of Jesus true,
And He will save at last.
Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle as the Summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Peaceful be they silent slumber-
Peaceful in the grave so low,
Then no more wilt join our number,
Thou no more our songs shall know.
Dearest sister, thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel;
But ‘tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
Then is heaven with joy to greet,
When no farewell tear is shed"
