Research Notes

He was a church member, and was received during the ministry of his brother, Rev. Isaac Cushman. From `Isaac Allerton of the Mayflower`: Eleazer Cushman held offices in Plymouth as late as 17 March 1710/11, so most of his children were born there.

In 1722 (no date) Eleazer Cushman deeded land to son Moses Cushman. On 14 Oct 1723 Eleazer Cushman Sr. of Plympton deeded his homestead in Plympton to son Eleazer Cushman reserving the right to live there during his life as well as his wife as long as she remained his widow. A November 1733 petition mentions Eleazer Cushman. His land was to remain in the old precinct (Plympton). No Plymouth Co. PR for Eleazer Cushman.He had possibly an 8th child, a daughter, Mary.

His wife was Elizabeth Royal Coombs (1662-1723), her mother was Elizabeth (Royale) Coombs. Sarah Cushman born 1709 was the daughter. She has been confused with Sarah Cushman, the daughter of Lt. Isaac Cushman who was born in 1684 or 82. She is the wife of Benjamin Spooner.
