    • BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH of JAMES CASHMAN:

      Life in Ireland

      James Cashman, was born in the townland of Pluckanes North in the Civil Parish of Donoughmore, County Cork, Ireland, on 2 February 1820. He was one of eight children born to Denis Cashman and Johanna Herlihy. A baptismal record has not yet been found for him, but his naturalization papers list his place of birth as "Pluckanes, County Cork, Ireland" and his date of birth as "on or about the second of February 1820" (13). His filial relationship to Denis and Hannah Cashman is established by his death record (14,15).

      James had many brothers and a sister all baptized in Donoughmore Roman Catholic Parish in County Cork, Ireland: John (b. 1817), Denis (b. 1821), Mary (b. 1823), Cornelius (b. 1828), Timothy (b. 1831), and John (b. 1833). With the exception of Timothy it cannot be established at this point whether or not James' siblings emigrated to the United States. James married Catherine Long, daughter of John Long and Julia McNamara, on 3 Sept 1844 in the Church of Aghabullogue in County Cork, Ireland (1). The witnesses were Denis Long and Denis Cashman.

      James and Catherine had three children that were born in Ireland: Johanna (aka Hannah), Judith (aka Julia) and John. Johanna was baptized on 12 July 1845 in the Church of Cloghroe in the Parish of Inniscarra in the Diocese of Cloyne (20). Her sponsors were John Long and Johanna Cashman. Judith was baptized on 8 Apr 1847 in the same Church (21). Her sponsors were Timothy Murphy and Hanora Cashman. John was baptized 25 June 1849 in the same Church (22). His sponsors were John Murphy and Catherine McCarthy.

      In 1848, James Cashman was occupying Plot 1 in the townland of Lisladeen, in the civil parish of Inniscarra. Figure 1 shows Plot 1 on a historic map of Lisladeen. Figure 2 is an aerial photograph of this location as it exists today. On this plot of land, Plot 1, there were two structures: a house and a cow barn. Figure 3 is the Ordnance Survey map of Lisladeen (1833-1846) showing the likely location of James Cashman's house and barn. Figure 4 is a present day street map of that same location. His neighbors in the townland were Widow Johanna Herlihy, Timothy Kelaher, and John Murphy (24). By late 1851, when the Lisladeen House Book was revised, James' name was crossed out to indicate that he was no longer living on Plot 1 and the structures were listed as "down" (23).

      Voyage to America

      On 26 Mar 1850, James departed from the Port of Liverpool on the Barque Adonis (4) with his wife Catherine and two of their children, Judith and John. They arrived in the port of Boston on 14 May 1850 (5). As steerage passengers, they would have disembarked at the passenger ships' docks and gone through customs and immigration inspection. If they passed inspection, they would have walked out into another area of the steamship dock where they would receive their baggage and then proceed directly to the city proper or Boston suburbs. If they did not pass the primary inspection, they would have immediately been given a hearing before the Board of Special Inquiry. Immigrants deemed inadmissible were transported to the U.S. Immigration Station at the end of Boston's Long Wharf. Of particular interest is the fact that their oldest daughter, Johanna, was not listed on the Adonis' passenger list. Johanna also did not appear with her family in the 1850 Federal Census. Documents suggest that she came over in 1853 with James' brother, Timothy Cashman. By the time of the Massachusetts State Census in 1855, she has been reunited with her family in Hanover, Massachusetts.

      Building a New Life

      Upon arriving in America, James and Catherine took up residence in the town of Hanover, Massachusetts. What made them decide to settle in Plymouth County? It's hard to know for sure, but Martha Campbell, the author of Remembering Old Abington, suggests that Irish immigrants were drawn to the area by railroad jobs. It just so happens that the Old Colony Railroad was beginning to build a line between Boston and Plymouth at a time when large numbers of Irish immigrants were arriving in Boston. The Old Colony Railroad needed laborers to clear the right of way; lay the crushed stone roadbed and wrestle the heavy rails into place and spike them down. The young Irishmen needed immediate jobs and were willing to undertake any kind of labor. Perhaps James signed on with the railroad and helped build the railway that runs through Abington, which is about five miles from the place where James and Catharine built their home. Perhaps this is where he learned many of the skills that he would use later as a surveyor, road builder and contractor.

      According to the Federal Census taken on 5 Sep 1850, James, age 30, was working as a laborer and Catherine, age 30, was tending to Julia, age 5, and John, age 2 (6). Over the next sixteen years, they had seven more children, all born in Massachusetts: Denis (b. abt 1851), Catherine (b. 1854), James T. (b. 1856), Mary (b. 1858), William (b. 1859), Ellen (b. 1862) and Luke J. (b. 1866).

      In September of 1855, James purchased a two and one quarter acre parcel of land on the southerly side of Walnut Street (now known as Webster Street or Route 123) which he purchased from John Stetson Barry for one hundred and twenty dollars. He constructed a house on the land to shelter his growing family and called it the "Cashman Home Place." Over the next twenty years, Cashman added to that property with purchases from Charles Jacob, Edward F Jacobs and Elisha Jacobs. On 24 Oct 1856, only six years after arriving in America, James Cashman appeared before the Suffolk County Superior Court in Boston, took an oath of allegiance and became a naturalized American citizen (13).

      By 1875, the Cashman Home Place consisted of twelve and one-half acres of field and woodland as well as two houses. In addition to the Home Place, James owned a number of houses, some of which he rented to tenants. By 1878, he had purchased, in total, twenty-one parcels (78 acres) in Hanover and nine parcels (about 78 acres) in Norwell. Types of property included: lots with tenant dwellings, pasture land for grazing animals, hay lots for mowing, woodland and swampland. Swampland was considered extremely valuable because it provided white cedar, which was used extensively for shingles and post and rail fences, and pine which was straighter and less knotty than its upland cousins and well-suited for building. According to the 1875 Hanover Valuation of Estates (18), James owned a total of 63.75 acres valued at $5050. Only fourteen of the 607 landowners in Hanover owned land valued at a greater dollar amount than James and all of them were born in Massachusetts. James' personal property included four horses, a carriage, two cows, one yearling and stock in trade worth eight hundred dollars. Compared to other Hanover residents, Cashman was a wealthy landowner and the most prosperous immigrant living in the town in 1875.

      During his almost thirty years in Hanover, James' listed occupation on census and other records changed from "laborer" in 1850 (6), to "brickmaker" in 1856(13), "farm laborer" in 1860 (8), "farmer" in 1867(23),  "shoemaker" in 1870 (10), and then finally to "laborer" in 1879(15).

      Annual Reports for the Town of Hanover for the years 1862 to 1887 give us a more detailed picture of James as a man that was very active in town projects such as road improvement, bridge repair, construction of new roads and bridges, clearing roads of snow, construction of sidewalks, laying drainpipe, carting gravel, digging ditches, and digging wells. He sold wood to heat the town's schools and stones to build the town's bridges. He surveyed for the town and served as Road Commissioner, an elected position, from 1872-3. By 1874, James was an independent contractor and bidding on new road construction jobs in the town of Hanover. While small by today's standards, these projects would have been quite substantial for the time.

      James and Catherine were members of St. Bridget's Roman Catholic Church in Abington (Figure 5) which was founded in 1863. Parish financial records from the years 1873 to 1882, show that James paid $24 per year to rent six seats in Pew 14 on the Left Aisle. Their daughters, Julia and Catherine were married in the parish in 1865 and 1881, respectively. James' generosity and commitment to the parish is evidenced by the beautiful stained glass window (Figure 6) he gifted to the church.

      Legacy

      Twenty days before he died of cancer, James Cashman, wrote a last will and testament, in which he bequeathed his considerable land holdings and personal estate to his wife, Catherine (16). He named his relative, John Spence of Rockland, as executor and he named his son, John, as trustee. He instructed John to invest the personal estate and use the income to provide for Catherine.

      James Cashman died 24 Sept 1879, in Hanover, Massachusetts (15). He is buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Rockland, Massachusetts, in a large family plot marked by a handsome granite memorial stone (Figure 7). Buried with him are his wife Catherine, his brother Timothy, four of his ten children (Dennis, James, Mary, and Julia), one granddaughter (Katherine F. Riordan), and one son-in-law (Daniel Riordan). Of interest is the presence of a stranger named Jeremiah Philpott, a laborer from Ireland, who died in 1884 at age 23 in Falmouth, Massachusetts; cause of death listed as "casualty." Research has uncovered that Mr. Philpott worked for James Cashman's sons, who were in the stone contracting business. Philpott died accidentally on the job, while blasting rocks in Woods Hole for a client. It is likely that a sense of responsibility and decency compelled the brothers to offer their family plot as a final resting place for Philpott.

      At the time of his death, James Cashman owned property valued at $8,101 and personal items valued at $3,159 (17). After his death in 1879, James' wife Catherine appears to have taken over the management of some of her husband's enterprises, for the town remunerated her for highway repairs, new road work and gravel. James and Catherine's sons Luke and James T. were paid for shoveling snow and repairing highways.

      After 1887, there is no mention of the Cashman family in the Hanover town reports. In 1903, there was a fire at the Cashman place and the original house that James built was destroyed. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • (Research):(a) Ancestry member epsullivan contacted JayCashman with a link to a possible baptismal record for James c. 1819. This record has James being baptized on 21 Jan 1819 in Donoughmore, Co. Cork. Sponsors are listed as Richard Murphy and Ann Dinane. The handwriting is very difficult to read and RootsIreland transcribed it as "James Callaghan, 21-Jan-1819, Donoughmore, Denis Callaghan, Johanna Herlihy, Sponsors Richard Murphy & Ann Dinane." See https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000633219#page/31/mode/1up
    • (Medical):When James' son John was being considered for insurability, the examining physician opined that the "description of James'  cancer appears to have been a swelling of the lymphatic glands of the axilla. Adenoma perhaps."

The Cloghroe Church was located in the Parish of Inniscarra in the Diocese of Cloyne.        A new church building was built in 1860-61 and this old building was converted to a school. The leftmost part of the building (with the Cloghroe sign) was the boys junior and senior classes (up to ages about 13 or so).  The section on the right (with the Centre sign) was the girls' school.       Internally, both buildings were divided width-ways by a glass and timber partition thereby creating two rooms in each building. This was to seperate the junior and senior classes. The center section (with the Commercial sign) was an empty space which was built over in later years. The high building in the background was the headmaster's house.       Some years later, a new school was built and this building became a furniture factory.       In 2012, this building exists as the Cloghroe Commercial Centre, a small industrial unit. The interior walls are the original stone work but the outer one hase been covered with plaster. [ Photo Credit: Brian Gabriel, Chairmain, Blarney and District Historical Society ]

    006 2012 Cloghroe Church view B
    This is a present day photograph of the building where James and Catherine Cashman took their children, Johanna, Julia and John, to be baptized by Rev. John Cahill in 1845, 1847 and 1849, respectively. The Cloghroe Church was located in the Parish of Inniscarra in the Diocese of Cloyne. A new church building was built in 1860-61 and this old building was converted to a school. The leftmost part of the building (with the 'Cloghroe' sign) was the boys junior and senior classes (up to ages about 13 or so). The section on the right (with the 'Centre' sign) was the girls' school. Internally, both buildings were divided width-ways by a glass and timber partition thereby creating two rooms in each building. This was to seperate the junior and senior classes. The center section (with the 'Commercial' sign) was an empty space which was built over in later years. The high building in the background was the headmaster's house. Some years later, a new school was built and this building became a furniture factory. In 2012, this building exists as the Cloghroe Commercial Centre, a small industrial unit. The interior walls are the original stone work but the outer one hase been covered with plaster.      [ Photo Credit: Brian Gabriel, Chairmain, Blarney and District Historical Society]
    006 2011 House at 232 Webster Street, Assinippi
    006 2011 House at 232 Webster Street, Assinippi
    This house was built in 1850, and is adjacent to the 220 Webster Street location in Hanover Massachusetts where the James Cashman farm was located.  Clare Noonan lives on property behind this house, #232 Webster Street, and hopes to find out that she is living on old James Cashman farm property!  When I zoomed in on the photo, I noticed that the numbers beside the front door read "232". I checked with the Hanover Town Assessors Office and their website confirms that this house is actually at "232 Webster Street." I also learned from the Assessors Office that the house is a 1 1/2 story, 8-room Cape, built in 1850 and purchased in 2000 by Michelle Mahoney & Andrew Johnson, the owners of record.  After much research, I have learned that James Cashman DID NOT own this property at 232 Webster Street, Assinippi. He DID own the properties which abutted this one to the east and south. During the years that James lived in Hanover, this property was owned by the Barry, Clapp, and Goodrich families.

    The small gray building in the cetner of this  photograph is the place where James and Catherine Cashman took their children, Johanna, Julia and John, to be baptized by Rev. John Cahill in 1845, 1847 and 1849, respectively. The Cloghroe Church was located in the Parish of Inniscarra in the Diocese of Cloyne. A new church building was built in 1860-61 and this old building was converted to the Cloghroe Boys & Girls National School. This photo, taken in 1937 while it was still a school, shows what the area looked like 87 years after James and Catherine lived there. The house in the background is the school principal's residence.

    006 1858c Cashman family portrait
    006 1858c Cashman family portrait
    This is a tintype copy of an older ambrotype taken circa 1858. It is believed to be an image of James Cashman, his wife, Catherine Long, and their first seven children. This image was sent to Maureen Taylor, a nationally-known photo historian, for analysis and she said that it looks like it was taken in the 1858-1860 time frame because of the very wide collars that everyone is wearing and the style of the clothing of the women and children. In 1858, James Cashman and Catherine Long had seven children:  Joanna, Julia, John, Dennis, Catherine, James Timothy and Mary Priscilla. Three more children would be born later: William in 1859, Ellen in 1862, and Luke J. in 1866.
    From left to right, the children in the photo would be...John Cashman (approx. 9 yrs old), Johanna Cashman (approx. 13 yrs old), James Timothy Cashman (approx. 2 yrs old), baby, Mary Priscilla Cashman (approx. 8 mos old), Dennis J. Cashman (approx. 7 yrs old), Catherine Cashman (approx. 4 yrs old), and Julia Cashman (approx. 11 yrs old). In the center of the photo there are three adults. The imposing man with the suit and tie could only be James Cashman. The woman to the right of center must be his wife Catherine Long. Due to the striking resemblance of the two adult women, Maureen Taylor was of the opinion that they were closely related, probably mother and daughter, as they have the same face shape, eyes, nose and mouth.

    It was common during this time period to pose a family matriarch in the center of the photo, a place of honor. It is possible that Catherine’s mother, Julia Long, may have come for a visit and gone back to Ireland at a later date. According to Maureen, this was not unheard of in the mid-1850s, but definitely a big enough deal that you might want to have a photo taken to commemorate the occasion.
    It is believed that the three adults in the center of the photo are James Cashman - family patriarch (age 38), Julia McNamara Long (Catherine's visiting mother), Catherine Long Cashman (age 34).

    006 2013 Tenant Dwelling at 263 Webster St view A
    This dwelling, located at 263 Webster Street in Hanover, MA, was known as the “Connell House.” It was built in 1860 so it would have been present in the years that James Cashman owned the land and is most likely one of James’ original tenant dwellings. The 1875 Hanover Valuation of Estates valued this dwelling at $300. The 1879 map of Hanover depicts a dwelling on this site with the notation “J. Cashman.” When James Cashman died, this parcel passed to his heirs who sold it to Jedediah Dwelley and Samuel Church, both of Hanover, for $290 in 1892. It is parcel 04-005 on the Hanover Assessor’s map. [Photo credit: Donna Goldstein]

    Immigration & Travel
    006 1800s Example of a Bark Rigged Ship
    006 1800s Example of a Bark Rigged Ship
    The passenger list of James and Catherine lists their sailing vessel as the "Bark Adonis" burthen 904 tons. What is a "Bark" and what does "904 burthen" mean?     The term "Bark" refers to the configuration of the sails and rigging. Common configurations of the era included Bark (or Barque), Ship, Brig and Schooner. A "Bark" rigged vessel was a three-masted vessel with the foremast and mainmast square rigged and the mizzenmast fore-and-aft rigged. It wasn't unusual for Barks to be re-rigged as Ships or vice-versa. A "Bark" rigged vessel, could sail with fewer crew members than the same vessel rigged as a "Ship." For this reason, many "Ship" rigged vessels were converted to "Barks" and will appear as both in Shipping News items and ship's lists. "Burthen" is a measurement for the inside volume of the ship.  [Source : Norway Heritage - Hands Across the Sea ]

    "Steerage passengers embarking an emigrant ship at Waterloo docks, Liverpool" - The text accompanying this picture in The Illustrated London News for July 6, 1850, describes immigrants boarding a ship in Great Britain:    "The scene in the Waterloo dock, at Liverpool, where all the American sailing packets are staioned, is at all times a very busy one; but, on the morning of the departure of a large ship, with a full complement of emigrants, it is peculiarly exciting and interesting. The passengers have undergone inspection, and many of them have taken up their quarters on board for twenty-four hours previously, as they are entitled to do by terms of the act of Parliament. Many of them bring, in addtion to the boxes and trunks containing their worldly wealth, considerable quantities of provisions, although it must be confessed that the scale fixed by the Government to be supplied to them by the ship is sufficiently liberal to keep in health and comfort all among them, who, in their ordinary course of life, were not accustomed to animal food.(...)"

At the time of his death he resided in Hanover, MA. At the time of his death he was 59 years old and a farmer. He was born in County Cork Ireland, to Dennis Cashman and Johanna Cashman. Recorded on 1 Jan 1880.    Note that the date of death on the certificate, 28 Sep 1879, does not match the date of death on the Hanover death register, 24 Sep 1879. I believe an error was made during transcription. James' entry is on line 28. It's quite possible that the transcriber mistook that for the date.
