  • Most of the Cushman genealogies identify Mary Rickard as Isaac's wife, but the references are

confusing and contradictory. The Mayflower Families in Progress (MFIP) have accepted Rebecca Harlow as Isaac Cushman's wife (daughter of William Harlow and Rebecca Barlett Harlow); this marriage is also referenced in Harlow Family, the First Five Generations, pp. 11-13 (this book references Plymouth Colony Records, 8:17; Plympton Vital Records,470,471; others); The American Genealogist Vol. 26, pp. 144-147 Last Modified 6 Dec 2009 Family ID F7370 Group Sheet | Family Chart
