004 1950s Robert Cashman MMA article
004 1950s Robert Cashman MMA article
"Old Cash", the original "Mr. Quincy" arrived at M.M.A in a blaze of glory. He won many friends with his quick humor and the bottle of "handy brandy" he kept in his locker. Things ran pretty smooth for the South Quincy Terror until one night around midnight he started to tear up the quarter-deck and had to be put in his place by Mr.Hirst. This didn't phase our dauntless hero in the least and he soon went on to new and bigger things. For the sake of humor, Uncle Bob organized M.M.A.'s own National Guard Unit and trained them for combat against Sid. We think it proper to mention a little bit concerning cruise time. Many was the night Old Cash could be seen partaking of a little of "this and that" with his friends south of the border. To sum this up, we would like to say that Cash is a true sailor in every meaning of the word and his seamanship ability won him the respect of the officers and his shipmates.

QUINCY GIVEN BAD FIRE SCARE -- Cashman's Big Storehouse on Furnace Avenue Threatened When His Hay Sheds are Burned. Loss is Estimated at $2,000- A two-alarm fire threatened the Cashman storage houses and big barn off Cross street, near the Granite Branch of the New Haven railroad last night. The fire started in that part of the sheds used for the storage of hay. In the building were 20 tons of hay. A few minutes after the fire was discovered the flames were shooting upwards for 20 feet. The first alarm came from box 432 at 10:45 and 10 minutes later Chief Mead ordered a second alarm sounded. This was done to get pumping engines and more men, for Chief Mead realized that if the fire broke through the hay sheds and got into the next shed beyond there were 20,000 bags of charcoal which would have made a blaring fire. The West Quincy companies were at the first a few minutes after the alarm sounded, but the pressure from the hydrant streams was not powerful enough to cope with the burning flames. One company had come from the central station on the first alarm and the second alarm brought two more companies from that station also Engine 2 from Quincy Point, Auto Combination 2 of Wollaston and Auto Ladder 2 from Wollaston. Within a few minutes after the pumping engines got to work the flames were beaten down and the firemen were able to get inside the shed where the hay was stored. It was almost unbearably hot in there but the firemen carried lines with them and soon had the fire under control, so that all danger of the flames spreading to the adjacent buildings was gone by. The 20 tons of baled hay were pitched out into the barn yard by the firemen. In an adjoining big barn were eight horses but they were gotten out soon after the fire was discovered and at no time were they in danger. Chief Mead and his men did a good piece of work in confining the flames to the building in which it started. The sounding of the second alarm sent hundreds of automobiles in the direction of West Quincy and thousands of people in West Quincy walked to the fire. The buildings were erected several years ago by the late John Cashman. At the present time they are owned by his nephew, Edward Cashman. Mr. Cashman said he thought the damage to the buildings by fire would not go over $1500 or $2000. All of the 20 tons of hay were ruined either by fire, smoke or water. It was stated that the hay was $32 a ton, which would bring the loss on the contents of the shed up $640. After the sounding of the second alarm, the police auto patrol, equipped with pulmotors and search lights was sent to the scene of the fire by Capt, E.H. Bishop, in charge of the police headquarters at the time. Within minutes after the sounding of the second alarm all sorts of wild rumors were being circulated in City square, which caused a big exodus towards West Quincy of autos and street cars. The all-out signal was sounded at 12:20 this morning. (Source detail: Quincy Patriot - Quincy Daily Ledger, 3 Sep 1921)

012 1899 Fire on Bunker Hill
Quincy Patriot - The alarm from Box 49, at 1:32 o'clock Sunday morning, was for a fire in an unoccupied house on Bunker Hill avenue owned by Michael Shea. The house was situated in the woods, some way from the street, and the fire was well under way when the department arrived. The nearest hydrant was over 1000 feet away and as it was impossible to drive a hose wagon anywhere near the fire considerable unavoidable delay was experienced in getting water onto the burning building. The only way it was possible to get water to the building was by pulling the hose off the wagon and then dragging it through the woods to the scene of action. Then the building was thoroughly soaked. The loss was $200. The cause was undoubtedly incendiary.

Sunday night at 8:40 another alarm was sounded from Box 49 and it proved to be for a fire in the same house. At this fire a line of hose was laid from a hydrant on Willard street and nearly 2000 feet was required to reach the building. The fire caused an additional loss of about $50.

013 1899 Chairman Sewer article detail
Chairman Shea of the Sewer Commissioners resents the inference that men in his department were discharged for political reasons, and that men were retained who are not citizens of Quincy. He says, in the first place, none but citizens of Quincy are employed and have not been for several years. In regard to the dropping of men the day after election, he says: The Sewer department are finishing up a connecting link of the sewer on Columbia street, and that about ten days more will be required to complete the job, which will wind up the work for the year and it is unwise to open any more streets. There was likely to be a heavy storm any day and stop work. When asked if this was the case, why it would not be better to keep a large gang of men at work and finish up the job in half the time, than to use a small gang and take ten days to do the job, Mr. Shea said, "The reason is that the soil is wet and it was impossible to work a large gang of men economically, and for that reason some of the men were discharged. It was natural that they should kick. Allowing that Mr. Shea's statements are the true facts of the case, it is rather a queer co-incident that it should have been discovered the day after election that a large force of men could no be worked and that the men discharged are supposed to be those who favored Mr. Hall for Mayor. There was also a wholesale discharge of the employees of the Street department on the Coddington street job and elsewhere, but the Ledger has been unable to find Commissioner Cavanagh at his office.

The ball of this society is always looked forward to as the leading event in Catholic social circles, and last night's affair was a worthy successor to the many brilliant affairs which have been given by St. Francis court.

From 8 till 9 o'clock a pleasing concert was given by the orchestra and at 9 o'clock the grand march was started. This was led by Chief Ranger William T. Shea and Miss Katherine [sic] Shea. They were followed by many couples, and at the conclusion of the march dancing held full sway till the early hours of the morning. The floor was in charge of William T.

013 1899 William T Shea article
William T. Shea, the chairman of the Board of Sewerage Commissioners, has been a memeber of that board since 1895. THe first board was composed of Paul R. Blackmur, H.T. Whitman and W.T. Shea. The members of the present board are W.T. Shea, Frederick L. Jones, A.F. Schenkelberger and Engineer, E.W. Branch. The work of this commission is one of the most important the city has undertaken and has been prosecuted with skill and economy. A full report of the work and expenditures to January 1, 1899, may be found on page 195 of City Document No. 10, being the annual report of the city officers for the year 1898. Mr. Shea's connection wth this Commission is especially appropriate; his long experience with such work and the management of men being of the great value in the present enterprise. His experience as a contractor and business man began in 1872, as a partner in the firm of William Shea & Son. His father, who was the senior partner, came to this city in the early '50's and by industry and thrift was enabled in 1872 to establish himself in the quarry and granite manufacturing buissness. He died in 1880 but the old firm name, and the nature of the business has of late years been gradually changed. Mr. W.T. Shea, who still carries on the business, has gone more largely into street building, paving, excavating and general contracting, and has built up a large and successful business. He was born in Quincy, March 24, 1857, and was educated at the public schools. He is known among his associates as a whole-souled fellow. His cheerful disposition and lighted-heartedness conveys the impression that he is free from care, but has a serious side, and in a business proposition can tackle a financial question like an expert. He doesn't hanker for political honors, but has had some experience in that line, having been elected to the first City Council, and re-elected the following year, serving on the Committee on Streets, Ways, Bridges and Lights, and on the Committee Ordinances. He is naturally endowed with a goodly share of brains and capacity, and wherever he has been tried, has not been found wanting in these traits, or the qualities which make a man among men.

013 1907 Mayor Shea Promises to Voters detail
To the Voters of Quincy:-- As a candidate for Mayor I believe the public have a right to know my views upon the issues of the present municipal campaign. I believe in a radical change from the present method of conducting our city affairs. I believe no contract should be given as a reward for political services. I believe that a contractor should not be influenced by city officials in the subletting of his contract. I believe that every dollar expended by the city should show a dollar's worth in return. I believe that the qualifications demanded in an applicant for officer should be honesty and ability and a willingness to devote his best energies to the service of the city. I believe that every person seeking employment in the city's service should be prepared to offer honest and efficient service. I believe that the head of each administrative department should be held responsible for the success of that department. I believe that no official should be permitted to build up a political machine. I believe that City Hall offices should not be used for political purposes. I believe in strict enforcement of No-License laws. I believe that the high standard of the Quincy schools should be maintained. I believe that all appointments to office should be made irrespective of race, creed or party affiliations. I was born in Quincy and have lived here all my life. All my business interests are in Quincy. I am paying to the working men of Quincy from $50,000-$60,000 a year. I believe that my experience as a Quincy business man qualifies me to administer the affairs of our city in an efficient and business-like manner. Absolutely, I have made no promise nor an intimation of a promise as to whom I shall, if elected, appoint to office. I have made no trades or political deals to secure votes. William T. Shea, 12 Common Street.

Some of the names suggested were entirely new to Mr.Shea, as the Daily Ledger found in an interview last evening, and he thought he would have to revise the list some during the next eight weeks. Undoubtedly the hopes of many were raised by the announcement and some who had no idea of entering the field may consider the possibilities. Certainly some very good selections were made for some of the offices if the gentlemen would accept. It was noticed that only three in the list were reappointments. It is possible the change will not be so sweeping. Will the Commissioner of Public Works be C.F. Knowlton, John Cashman, H.T. Whitman, Fred E. Trooper or someone else?

013 1910 William T Shea Manhunt article
Patriot - Granite Manufacturer Kills Two and Wounds 3 Others - Man Hunt Follows Unexplained Frenzy of Prominent Citizen of Quincy, Mass (By Associated Press to the Patriot) Quincy Mass, July 29 - After killing two persons and wounding three others at whom he shot in a unexplained frenzy Louis Restelli, a granite contractor, made his escape late today and tonight was at large. His mother, Mrs. Rose Restelli, 65 years old, and Henry E. Hardwick, aged 56 years, one of the most prominent granite manufacturers in this city, from whom Restelli rented his place of business, are dead. Gasper Restelli, 40 years, brother of Louis, has three bullet wounds in his body and is not expected to live. Benjamin Bishop, also a granite manufacturer, is suffering from two bullet wounds, one in the hand and another in the thigh, and C. Theodore Hardwick, brother of the dead man, and his partner in business, will be crippled for life by a shattered knee pan, the result of one of Restelli's shots. The reason for Restelli's sudden running amuck [sic] was not evident tonight, but it is suggested that money troubles may have caused him to become demented. Tonight he was the object of a man hunt headed by Mayor William T. Shea and participated in by militiamen, policemen, firemen and citizens. Restelli called today at his mothers home in South Quincy, to ask her for a loan which he had sought for several days. Her body was found later in the house, pierced by several bullets. Heading for his brother's place of business Restelli met Bishop, had some words with him and after a struggle fired several shots, two of which took effect. Restelli next went to his brother Gaspar's granite manufacturing establishment, and left him lying on the floor of his office, probably fatally wounded. Taking possession of a horse and buggy Louis drove at an ordinary pace to the office of the Hardwick Company and then fled to the open country.

Headed by a platoon of police under Chief Frank E. Burrel and Captain Daniel R. McKay, the long line travelled [sic] over Common street to Copeland to Crescent to the church entrance. There the escort divided and the casket and its remains were carried between the lines. Rev. Fr. Thomas R. McCoy, pastor or St. Mary's church, was celebrant of the mass. Rev. Fr. Henry T. Grady formerly pastor, now of St. Joseph's church of Somerville, was deacon, and Rev. Fr. John P. Cuffe pastor of the Sacred Heart church of Atlantic, was sub deacon. Rev. Fr. William J.

An air of sadness pervaded the home of ex-Mayor Shea and the church and even after the remains has been interred in the family lot in West Quincy beside his parents, for whom his love and affections never waned, hundreds stood about the grave expressing their deep respect and eloquent love for their genial friend and comrade, "Bill Shea." There was no pronounced eulogy but the tributes of friends, many from early childhood were affecting. Even those friends of his mature years stood by as earth gradually covered the casket and sorrowfully bowed their heads with those who survive him. But a short distance from the grave stood Dennis Meuse, one of the few remaining Indians of the Mic Mac tribe who became a registered citizen so that he could cast his vote for "Bill Shea" for mayor, and surrounding him were little children who gazed with wondering eyes on the large framed weeping American Indian who was not as devoid of sentiment as the suposed [sic.] Many and handsome were the florid tributes and none were more significant than the representation of the Mayor's chair from the Hebrews of the city. The pieces were carried from the house to the grave in an open barouche. Among the remembrances were: Among the floral tributes were: St. Mary's C.T.A. & M.R. Society, - standing cross.

The Boston Journal -- William T. Shea Dies in Quincy -- Was Mayor of the City for Four Years in Succession -- Quincy, Dec 22 -- William T. Shea, for four consecutive years mayor of Quincy, died earlier today at his home, after an illness of three weeks. Former Mayor Shea was one of the most progressive and aggressive executives the city ever had. Two years ago he refused to run again, explaining that his business required his attention and that his health was poor. Mr. Shea was the son of William Shea, a veteran of the Crimean War, whose heroism won him the Victoria Cross. He was born in Quincy in 1857, was educated in the public schools here, and entered the granite business with his father. He is survived by four sisters, Katherine Shea, Mrs. M.E. Lyons, Mrs. Anna Scollard and Mrs. Arthur Murphy, and by one brother, Michael Shea. Funeral services will be held Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock with a solemn high mass of requiem at St. Mary's Church.

Springfield Daily News -- Quincy - Dec 22. -- William T. Shea, four times mayor of Quincy, died today after a protracted illness. An attack of indigestion brought the former mayor to his bed two months ago. Heart trouble is said to have been the immediate cause of his death. Shea was born in Quincy, March 24, 1857. His father, William Shea, was a member of the famous Light Brigade, "the gallant 600" immortalized by Tennyson. Shea served as councilman before becoming mayor. He held the office of mayor for four years, longer than any Democrat in the history of the city, but pleaded business and refused to run again two years ago. The granite quarrying and contracting business, started by his father, had grown to such an extent and his health was breaking, causing him to refuse to be a candidate for Congress in 1912. On learning of Shea's death, Mayor Stone ordered the flags on the City Hall and others buildings at half mast today.

The Burlington Press - Court Reconvenes - Case of J.S. Hefflon vs. J.E. Cashman, for Rent, Taken Up. When Chittenden county court reconvened in this city Monday afternoon the case of John S. Hefflon vs. James E. Cashman, to be tried by jury, was taken up. J.J. Enright and M.G. Leary appear for Mr. Hefflon, and Theodore E. Hopkins is Mr. Cashman's attorney. The case is one of contract, the plaintiff claiming rent for a storage house on a spur of the Rutland railroad. The members of the jury drawn to hear the case are Xiste Blanchette of South Burlington, Octave Cormla of Colchester, James M. Cassidy of Hinesburg, H.H. Hayden of Bolton, L.E. Huntley of Essex, A.T. Mongeon of Colchester, Albert Marcotte of Colchester, A.G. Mott of Burlington, H.J. Metcalf of Underhill, G.V. Roberts of Essex, J.H. Safford of Jericho and M.W.Wells of Huntington. Witnesses called by the plaintiff Monday were the defendant, who testified as to taking over the building used by him for storage purposes. According to book accounts, Mr. Cashman testified that he took the place over about February 1, 1911, and had it up to March 1, 1913, about twenty-two months. It appeared in the testimony that the Texas Oil company had used the building, it being the claim of the plaintiff that the building was sublet to them by the defendant for $15 per month. Mr. Cashman testified that the Texas company did owe him four months rent at $14 per month. On cross-examination Mr. Cashman testified that the building was little better than a shed, having the ground for a floor and being of four walls constructed of rough boards with two openings. He testified that he ex-braced the building and built it a platform, the platform lessening the work of unloading and re-loading containers of gasoline. Mr. Cashman claims the he owes 22 months rent at three dollars per month, according to a verbal contract. Mr. Hefflon, when placed upon the stand, claimed that there was no agreement as to the price which should be paid for the building. After Cashman had vacated Hefflon called upon him for the rent and was told that the place was no good and that he did not suppose he would have to pay rent for it. G.B. Arnold was called. Arnold does a trucking business and claimed to have rented storehouses for other people. He claimed to know the value of the rent of the storehouse, though he testified that he had never been in it and could not remember what kind of a building it was. He stated that it was worth during the time in question from fifteen to eighteen dollars per month. On cross-examination he testified that he had not rented any storehouses during the time in question.

017 1928 James E Cashman Praise article
017 1928 James E Cashman Praise article
QUINCY PATRIOT LEDGER-James E. Cashman, bridge builder, has been signally honored for spanning the raging Winooski river between Burlington, Vt., and Winooski, the only means of direct travel between Burlington and Montreal. This unheralded engineering plan is all the more wonderful when one stops to consider that work on the bridge started last March and the bridge was dedicated last week. Added to this fact there remains some difficulties that were overcome when the floods hampered and for a time stopped construction on the bridge. In one instance a huge caisson was washed away by flood. Mr. Cashman is a former resident of Quincy having been born and educated in this city. He is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Cashman, who were well known by the older folk in the West Quincy district. At the dedication exercises Gov. Weeks of Vermont who made the dedication address paid a high compliment to Mr. Cashman. The bridge builder although confronted with three floods pushed the work ahead with such rapidity to astound all critics who prophesied that the bridge would not be completed within a month of the time set by Mr. Cashman. Unfavorable transportation conditions added to the difficulties as certain important building materials were often delayed for weeks. But for this the bridge would have been opened several weeks earlier. This is not Mr. Cashman's only contribution to the reconstruction in Vermont, however, as he has undertaken to build 11 bridges, the last of which will be completed about the first of November. Mr. Cashman is modest about his achievements and has the highest words of praise for the Detachment of the 1st Engineers of the famous first Division, U.S.A, stationed at Fort Dupont, Delaware, who were pushed to the banks of the Winooski last fall when the floods devastated the district. But for these men there would have been no travel across the river during the winter and spring months. While the dedication of the new bridge was taking place the clang of hammers could be heard as the old pontoon bridge was slowly being removed. The best tribute to the work of the Engineers may be obtained from statistics when it is learned that over a million automobiles and a like number of pedestrians crossed the river on the pontoon bridge in spite of the fact that the river was a raging torrent with rapid rise and fall, ice jams, and severe winter weather.

019 1890 Fire On Copeland Property
Quincy Patriot - The alarm from Box 46 at 12:30 Wednesday morning was for a fire discovered in the building formerly occupied as a harness shop and owned by John Cashman, situated on Copeland street directly opposite Hose 3 house. The blaze was seen by a lady living next house who notified her son and he gave the alarm. The fire department responded very promptly but their services were not required. The loss was very small, being less than $10. If it had not been seen so quickly there would probably have been a larger fire as the building is in close proximity to Lacey's machine shop and it would have been hard work to save the latter. So many fires have occurred lately that people are beginning to feel nervous and it would be a good idea to appoint a night watchman to patrol Copeland street. This building remains and it is nothing more than bait for some evil-minded person to set a match to it and probably destroy a large amount of valuable property.

Sunday Boston Herald - 15 Jul 1894 - Seventy Acres in Quincy - The largest real estate deal which has been consummated in Quincy for a long time has just been  made. A syndicate of Quincy capitalists, represented by John Cashman, has purchased of Hon. John Quincy Adams 70 acres of land on the north easterly section of his extensive property at Mt. Wollaston. The price paid for this large tract was $50,000. The property is located on the easterly side of Sea street, the main thoroughfare between Quincy Centre and Manet Beach, and extends from Breakneck hill on Sea street to Palmer street, and includes the territory on both sides of the latter street nearly to German-town and is locally known as Quincy woods. The tract includes upland, meadow and woodland. It is rumored that a part or a whole of the tract will be laid out for a Catholic cemetery, although this rumor lacks conformation.

019 1896 Cashman Quarry Death
Patriot Ledger - Fell Into Quarry - Fatal Accident to Foreman at John Cashman's Quarry - Richard Barry, foreman at John Cashman's quarry had a frightful fall Saturday afternoon from the effects of which he died a short time after. The unfortunate man had been at work in the quarry cleaning off snow and when desiring to come up he caught hold of the hook on the fall and was hoisted up hanging by the hook. The hook was icy cold and that coupled with the weight of Mr.Barry so benumbed his hands that when the top was reached and he had tried to swing himself onto the bank he lost his hold and fell back into the quarry, striking with a dull thud nearly a hundred feet below. Other workmen hastened to his rescue and as there was still life in the body, it was placed on a sled and taken to E.J. Murphy's drug store, where Drs. Sheahan, Dion and Ash were quickly summoned, but the unfortunate man had breathed his last before they arrived, his death probably being due to internal injuries. The remains were taken in charge by Undetaker Brown. Mr. Barry was about 46 years of age and resided at 74 West street. He leaves a widow and five children.

Text of article reads: "LARGE NUMBER AT - Services for the Late Henry man Held at St Mary's Church, West Quincy, This Morning. QUINCY, Sept 12 - The esteem in which Henry A. Cashman of 49 Cross st, who died suddenly Friday night at his summer home, Houghs Neck, was held, was attested by the immense gathering of old and young who attended his funeral this morning at St Mary's church, West Quincy. Mr Cashman was the 17-year-old son of Pres John Cashman of the Quincy electric light and power company and a prominent contractor of this city and Boston, and was a student
at St John's preparatory school of Danvers. The services were held at 9 o'clock and the high mass of requiem was celebrated by Rev William J. Duffy. Seated within the sanctuary railing were Rev Peter Ronan,
PR, pastor of St Peter's church, Meeting House Hill, Dorchester, and Rev John J. Coan, pastor of the church of St John the Baptist of this city. In the big congregation of mourners were Mayor William T. Shea,
Overseer of the Poor James H. Elcock, Supt of Streets Michael E. Shea and James F. Burke of the school committee. The Gregorian mass was sung by the regular choir under the direction of Miss Mary McKay,
organist of the church. The choir was augmented by M. J. Donovan of Concord, NH, who sang the "De Profundis" after the offertory, and by John Mahan, musical director of St John's church, who sang the "Tremens Factus" from the "Dies Irae" during the absolution service. The floral remembrances were probably the largest and most magnificent ever seen at a funeral in West Quincy, including many massive set pieces. The services were attended by eight students from St John's school, who acted as bearers. They came in charge of Brother Benjamin and Peter of the Xavian brotherhood. The bearers were George Chalmers, Edward Mee, Harold McCann, John Bradley, William Joyce, Roger O'Connor, Edward Heffernan and Frederick Feeley. Burial was in the family lot in St Mary's cemetery, where services were held by Rev John J. Coan of St John's church, assisted by Rev Peter Ronan of Dorchester."

QUINCY -- Henry A. Cashman, the 17-year-old son of Mr and Mrs John Cashman of 49 Cross st, West Quincy, died suddenly last night at the summer home of his parents at Houghs Neck, of acute dilatation of the heart. He was in the yard looking at his father's automobile when stricken with the fatal illness. He was carried into the house, and his brother-in-law, Dr Daniel B. Reardon, was summoned from Quincy Center. Dr Reardon made a record-breaking trip to Houghs Neck and worked for two hours, vainly trying to bring back the spark of life. During these two hours young Cashman was in a semiconscious condition. He died about 8 o'clock. His death came as a great shock to his parents and his many friends, as he was a very popular young man. The funeral will be held at his home in West Quincy Monday morning, with a requiem mass at St Mary's church at 9 o'clock. [Source credit: collection of Catherine Cronin]

019 1913 Death of John Cashman Well Known Quincy Contractor
Death of John Cashman - Well-Known Quincy Contractor, Sustained Shock Three Weeks Ago in Portland, Had Most of Big Jobs on New Haven Road. QUINCY, March 27 - John Cashman, president of the Quincy Electric Light and Power Company, owner and president of the Bay State Dredging Company, Ltd, of Boston, one of the best-known contractors and bridge builders in the State, died this morning at his home on Cross st, West Quincy. Three weeks ago, while on a business trip to Portland, Me, Mr Cashman was stricken with a shock. A little over a week ago he had improved so that he was moved to his home in West Quincy, but after getting home he had a setback, and continued to fail until 3 o'clock this morning, when he passed away. The life of John Cashman was an inspiration for any poor boy. From a farm hand he worked his way up in the world until he became one of the most influential citizens of Quincy and gained for himself a name throughout the State that was synonymous with business success and business honesty. Mr Cashman was born in Ireland, but came to this country when a baby. His parents settled in that part of Scitutate now known as Norwell, and Mr Cashman grew to manhood there. When a boy he drove with his parents to the Catholic Church in Hanover every Sunday, waited for Sunday school after the mass and then walked six miles home. Mr Cashman came to Quincy about 45 years ago and obtained employment on the farm of John Q. A. Field. A characteristic of his that remained throughout his life was manifested in his first job in this city, and that was his eagerness to work. By careful saving he managed to buy a horse and cart and soon began to do private contract work. Everything he did was thorough, and it was not many years before he had established a flourishing business. He next turned his attention to building bridges, and his first contract from the Old Colony Railroad was so well done that he did not have to bid for any more work. When the company wanted a good job done they hired John Cashman to do it and abided by his word. After the Old Colony Railroad had been merged into the New Haven system his contracts with the railroad company still continued. He had the contracts for the big work at Reardville in connection with the abolition of the grade crossings and also at Attleboro and Brockton and the Stony Brook parkway in Boston and the bridge over the Furnace Brook parkway, in West Quincy. One of his latest jobs was the Back River Bridge, in Weymouth, which has just been completed. Mr Cashman also did a lot of deep-sea wall building along the Massachusetts coast and had the contract for the building of the Pilgrims' monument at Provincetown. About two years ago Mr Cashman bought the Bay State Dredging Company's plant, in Boston, and had continued as its president ever since. Several years ago he was elected president of the Quincy Electric Light and Power Company and was at the head of that company at the time of his death. Mr Cashman was a most unassuming man and disliked very much to talk about himself or his work. He was a man of a most charitable disposition, but the amount of his charities was never known to anybody but himself. He gave liberally of time, work and money to the building of the new St. Mary's Church in West Quincy, where his funeral will be held Saturday morning. Mr. Cashman was a member of St Francis' Court, M. C. O. F. He is survived by his wife, three sons and four daughters. His sons are James of Burlington, Vt, John of this city and William of Dorchester. His daughters are: Mrs Addie Dalton, the wife of J. W. Dalton of Sandwich, a member of the staff of the Boston Globe: Mrs Minnie Reardon, the wife of Daniel B. Reardon of this city and Misses Helen and Beatrice Cashman.

Funeral of John Cashman. Great Crowd Attend Services at Quincy This Morning -- Large Number of Floral Pieces. Quincy, March 29 - The funeral of John Cashman was held here this morning. The members of St Francis' Court, M.C.O.F., of which Mr. Cashman was a charter member, turned out in a body and its members acted as bearers. Men of all stations in public and private life, as well as women and children, followed the body through the streets to the church and thence to the cemetery back of the church. In the long line were the officials of the Quincy Electric Light Company, whose offices were closed till 1 o'clock; the officials of the Bay State Dredging Company, members of the executive an diegislative branches of the City Government and hundreds of prominent citizens from all parts of Quincy. The casket was borne into the church by Hon William T. Shea, Philip T. Eagan, chief ranger of St. Francis Court; Patrick Mannix, John J. Joyce, John F. Burke, Frederick White, Joseph McTiernan and Napoleon B. Grignon. At 9 o'clock a high mass of requiem was celebrated by Rev William J. Duffy. Seated within the sanctuary railing were Rt Rev Mgr Peter Donan of St Peter's Church, Dorchester; Rev Henry T. Grady, pastor of St. Mary's Church; Rev John J. Coan, pastor of St. John's Church; Rev Francis Walsh of Reading, Rev Frank Hart of Canton, Rev Dr. Andrew J. O'Brien of St John's Seminary, Brighton, and Rev Patrick J. Scannell of St John's Church. The musical portion of the mass was the Gregorian chant which was sung by the regular choir under the direction of Miss Fanny Cronin. Miss Alice Celeste Foley sang the "Pie Jesu" and the "De Profundis." The floral display was one of the largest and finest ever seen in this city and it necessitated four carriages to transport there remembrances to the cemetery. There were massive standing pieces from St. Francis' Court M.C.O.F., the Quincy Electric Light and Power Company, the Bay State Dredging Company and Mr Cashman's brother, William. The latter offering was the biggest flora piece ever seen in this city and one of the largest ever constructed. It represented a tug towing barges under a span bridge, typifying the span of life. The remembrances from friends were so numerous as to completely fill a room at the home and was an eloquent tribute to the worth of Mr Cashman and the esteem in which he was held. The committal service of the Catholic Church was performed at the grave by Rt Rev Mgr Peter Ronan, and old-time friend and summer neighbor, who was assisted by the other priests participating in the services at the church. All employees of the electric light company, except those needed at the power station, were excused from work and the business offices were closed till this afternoon.

John Cashman Died of Shock - Stricken at Portland. He Never Rallied From the Effects - Prominent Business Man - Patriot Ledger - John Cashman, for upward of 40 years one of Quincy's most active and energetic business men passed away shortly after 3 o'clock this morning at his home 137 Cross street, 64 years, the immediate cause of his death being due to a shock. Some three years ago he sustained a slight shock but recovered. Three weeks ago while in Portland, Me., on business, he had another shock. He immediately became seriously ill and as soon as it was possible he was removed to his home in Quincy in a special car which was taken from Portland and which was stopped on the Granite branch within a few feet of his home. Since then he has gradually failed and but very slight hopes were entertained for his recovery. There were few more active business men in Quincy than Mr. Cashman. He was born in Ireland, coming to America with his parents when about one year of age. His parents settled in what was then South Scituate, now known as Norwell. Here he spent his early youth coming to Quincy at the age of 19 years. He found employment at the granite plant of John Q.A. Field with whom he remained for a number of years. Finally he bought a horse and engaged in business for himself, as a contractor and bridge builder. Early in his career he secured the contract for a bridge from the Boston & Albany railroad. From that time on he was constantly employed building bridges for that railroad without being asked to enter into competition with other concerns and many New England bridges of today stand as a monument to his skill and energy. Mr. Cashman was a splendid example of the self-made man, the product of pluck, endurance and perseverance. He was of the rugged type of character that easily command respect wherever he went. In addition to his business as a contractor he was interested in several other business enterprises, being president of the Quincy Electric Light & Power Co., owner of the Bay State Dredging Co., which he purchased several years ago, and a large quarry at West Quincy. He was one of the most prominent members of St. Mary's parish at West Quincy and when work was commenced on the basement of the new church he contributed the granite used in its construction. He is survived by a widow, three sons and four daughters, James who resides in Burlington, Vt., John who resides at home, William of Dorchester, Minnie, wife of Dr. Daniel B. Reardon, Addie, wife of John W. Dalton, Sandwich correspondent of the Boston Globe, Helen and Beatrice who reside at home, the last named being employed in the State House in Boston. He had one other son Henry who died suddenly at Houghs Neck about three years ago. The death of this son was a severe blow to Mr. Cashman and he has never been the same since that time. He also leaves one brother, William Cashman who is in the coal business. He was a member of St. Francis Court M.C.O.F.

019 1970 Cashman Quarry Fire detail
Quincy May Face Action By State On Dump Blaze - Quincy - Despite charges of sabotage in the Cashman's quarry fire, the Metropolitan Air Pollution Control District may bring action against the city, as the blaze continued to smoulder [sic] for the third straight day. Complaints received - Frank Reinhardt, director of the air pollution control district, said yesterday that his department has received several complaints about smoke from the dump, and said a citation will be issued against the city demanding that action be taken to prevent recurrances [sic] of similar fires. Mr. Reinhardt charged that the city should not have used demolition material in trying to build a road into the quarry. The fire broke out about 10 p.m. Wednesday in demolition material the city planned to use for a roadbed into the almost inaccessible quarry. City plans call for the quarry to be used as a new dump site once the roadbed is complete, which was to have been in two weeks. On Thursday and yesterday mornings, heavy smoke drifted over the Southeast Expressway and the smell of burning debris settled over the West Quincy area. Mr.Reinhardt said if another outbreak occurs, the state would ask the attorney general to institute action against the city. Fire officials have declined to comment on the possibility of sabotage in the quarry fire despite city officials claims. The official fire department analysis of the cause is "suspicious origin," City Engineer Henry Nilsen yesterday charged that the fire was started "by someone wanting to sabotage the city's operation of the new dump." He contends it would take gasoline to start such a blaze because of the icy conditions. Mayor James R. McIntyre, also concerned about the possibility of sabotage, said the fire has set back the planned move to the dump.

020 1996 Jane Labys Patriot Ledger article Jul 31
The Patriot Ledger - Quincy native's body found in plane's watery wreckage - HINGHAM - The wait is over for the family of Jane Ann Reardon Labys. Two weeks after TWA flight 800 exploded, her body has been positively identified by the medical examiner's office, recovered from the waters off long Island. The Quincy's native and Thayer Academy graduate was one of 230 people who died on the Paris-bound Boeing 747. She was the daughter of the late state Supreme Court Justice Paul Reardon of Hingham. "We didn't know if she would be a part of the sea forever", said her sister, Martha Reardon, a Hingam buisnesswoman. "We wanted to bring her home, and now we can." Labys, 51, grew up in Quincy with her sister and two brothers. At the time of her death, she lived with her husband, Walter Labys, in Morgantown, W.Va., where he is a professor at the University of West Virginia. She was traveling to France to meet him at the couple's chalet there when the jetliner exploded. He was working in Europe for the United Nations this summer. Martha Reardon said her sister will be buried in nearby Latrobe, Penn. A private family funeral service will be held there Saturday. A local memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 9 at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Hingham. Friends of the Reardon family and the victim's former classmates from Quincy, Thayer and Wellesley College are invited to attend. Jane Laby's had two adult children, Paul and Lottie. She worked at a Morgantown real estate company and was active there in a Catholic church, the Girl Scouts and the Monongalia County Historical Society. She deeply loved music, her sister said, so the Hingham service will feature Latin hymns, "Amazing Grace" and the spiritual "My Lord, What a Morning," which Labys sang at the village church in Habere-Lullin, the French town where she was to have met her husband for a week's vacation. In addition, Reardon said, one of her Wellesley classmates will play the cello. Their mother, Ann Reardon of Hingham, said the shock of the plane crash and the vigil of the last two weeks were made easier by the condolences and help the family received from local friends and Jane's former classmates. "They've all been wonderful," said Ann Reardon. "I can't believe how many people have called and sent cards and brought us food during all this." Unlike some victims' families who criticized TWA's handling of the crash's aftermath, the Reardons had nothing but praise for the airline. "They were so supportive in all ways for the families down there (in New York)," Martha Reardon said. She said a TWA counselor has called "three or four times a day" since the crash to keep them updated, and then informed them of the medical examiner's identification soon after it was confirmed Monday afternoon. It was also a comfort, Martha Reardon said, to talk to the parents of some Pan Am Flight 103 victims. They visited the Flight 800 families in New York. The Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board were also helpful to the families, she said. But even with all that aid and comfort, Reardon says her sister's death will cast a shadow over what was to have been a happy occasion - the wedding of Jane's son, Paul, in the fall. "That is still on," she said. "But first, we have to get through this." [Article credit: collection of Jean Cashman (1926-2005) courtesy of Brian Cashman]

026 1932 Drive through England
026 1932 Drive through England
Fourteen hundred miles of motoring behind the wheel of a right-side drive, hired car, through England, Wales and Scotland proved a delightful vacation for Dr. Daniel B. Reardon and son, Paul C. Reardon, according to an interesting resume of his journey told to members of the school committee last night. Historic cathedrals, the beautiful lake regions, Bobby Burns' home, Oxford college, military maneuvers, Druids' remains at Stonhenge [sic] and the beautiful scenery of the countryside were a few of the highlights of the trip. Dr. Reardon was highly complimentary for the exceptional service offered by the automobile club membership which provides telephone systems along the highways for calls that bring immediate service. These telephone booths are located throughout all sections of Great Britain, Dr. Reardon stated, and no charge is imposed other than membership in the club. Representatives of the association also direct traffic and give information. He stated the roads are equal and in many instances superior to those in this country. And the truck drivers are far more courteous than those of America, he discovered. One of the interesting visits of the trip was the stop at Oxford, where Paul met one of the Oxford university debaters who participated in the trans-Atlantic debate with Harvard's team, of which the local student was a member. Gasoline costs about 20 cents and one of the unusual features of motoring in the British Isles was the fact that it was necessary to drive the right instead of the opposite, in vogue in the United States. All cars are provided with right-side driver's seat, and this proved a unique innovation to the local travelers.

030 1980 Paul C Reardon retirement
030 1980 Paul C Reardon retirement
At age 70, The Honorable Paul C. Reardon is having  "a wonderful time. "I enjoyed the last three or four years immensely. There are no more wild rides on the Expressway. The pressure goes off; the obligation of being in court everyday is gone. The work was exhausting, timetaking work." Judge Reardon of Hingham, was chief justice of the state's Superior Court system for seven years, and a state Supreme Court justice for 14. When he left the bench in 1976, at age 67, it was three years before he had to - mandatory retirement age for judges in Massachusetts is 70. He didn't really retire. He was in demand for new ventures. In a society that tends to put down the aging, he was, and is, part of a select group; judges, whose age and experience are more likely to make them valued and respected. "In the law, the older, and more experienced you are, the more people are going to listen. I like to think that is also true in other areas, but I guess it isn't. In manufacturing, new techniques take over," he says. The judge, a tall man with both reserve and warmth, is sitting at his desk at 16 Beacon St., the Boston Bar Association headquarters. A deep red carpet leads down a long corridor and up a winding spiral staircase to its third floor office. Portraits of distinguished jurists line the walls. In a nearby conference room, voices can be heard pondering a master's hearing case. Reardon drives into Boston three times a week now. He travels a good deal, part of his work as a fundraiser for the National Center for State Courts. The center was started by Reardon and judges from other states in 1971 in Williamsburg, Va., with the goal of improving the nation's courts. Reardon's work with the center has received wide notice. His views on what it's like to grow older have been kept more to himself. "You know, I don't really feel old. I don't regard 70 as an ancient age, though when I was 30 or 40 I might have. You don't charge around the way you did when you were 20, but I'm still rolling, walking, fishing, catching a trout or two." When he "retired" early from the bench, he says, it was because he has sense of "deja vu." "After you have written hundreds of cases (he wrote 600 while in the SJC), it can become a real chore. When you have case come up before you and you find yourself thinking, 'Here's one of them again,' it's time to move along. But I was fortunate - I had a place to go." One of the "myths of aging" is that older people can't learn new things - the "You can't teach an old dog new tricks" cliche. In fact, studies have shown that while older people may take longer to learn new material, they retain it better and are capable of understanding it on a deeper level. Judge Reardon says his memory is as sharp as it ever was. "I was always interested in American history and that is based in large part on memory. I've notice no change. We have a group in Boston, the Tavern Club, where we write, memorize and the put on our own shows. We have a great time down there," he says. Among his views on other topics: Retirement: "Some people find themselves lost, and it's well to plan ahead, so it's not too traumatic." Chief Justice: "I think if you call them as you see them, you are bound to create static, and seven or eight years is the outside length of term for an administrative post." Changes with age: "You are inclined to take a more relaxed, detached overview of things. Even even-tempered people tend to get uptight (in the daily grind before retirement.)" The Future: "There's a saying that judicial reform is no sport for the short-winded. And that is my project for the next few years."

031 1920 John W Dalton obituary
031 1920 John W Dalton obituary
31 May 1920 - DEATH OF JOHN W DALTON OF SANDWICH - Globe Correspondent on Cape Cod Many Years - John Wilfred Dalton, for many years the Globe correspondent for the lower part of Cape Cod, died this morning in Carney Hospital. An operation for appendicitis was performed on Mr Dalton a week ago today and at first he seemed to be making a fine recovery. By Wednesday, however, he showed alarming symptoms. It was decided that a second operation would be necessary and it was done at 3 yesterday afternoon. From this operation he never really recovered, and the end came at 3 this morning. John W. Dalton was one of the best known men on Cape Cod. As a newspaper man, as a man constantly interested in projects for the benefit of the Cape, and as the eternal advocate and fighter for the life saving corps, he was always before the public. He was interested in politics, and though a Democrat in a district overwhelmingly Republican, had a large following. His father, John Wilfred Dalton, was born in Boston. His mother, who was Rose E. Duffy, was an immigrant from Ireland. Soon after their marriage they went to live at Sandwich, where Mr. Dalton became a glass blower in the famous Sandwich works. He later established a grocery business in the town. John W. Dalton was born in Sandwich on April 25, 1867. He was in the high school when his father died, and he was obliged to leave school and to take up the grocery business. His first newspaper item was done for the Cape Cod in 1883. Later he joined the staff of the Sandwich Independent, becoming its managing editor. He became the local correspondent for the Boston Globe in 1886 and was correspondent as well for the New York Herald, World and Journal, the Associated Press, the New Bedford Journal, the Barnstable County Journal and the Falmouth Local. John Dalton had considerable facility with the pencil as well as with the pen and many of his early articles for the Globe were illustrated by his own sketches. Though he was normally correspondent for Buzzard's Bay and the vicinity he covered stories all the way down the Cape, especially stories of shipwrecks. He became deeply interested in the work of the life savers and wrote a book on their activities. For many years he lectured constantly on their work and he fought for them in the halls of the Congress. Mr Dalton was a man of active mind. He invented an improved breeches buoy, which is in use today; he was interested in every new industry that came to the Cape and helped to establish many of them. At the time of his falling ill he had just returned from New York, where he had succeeded in organizing a company to run steamers from the canal to New York city, carrying Cape Cod products.

325 1961 William J Cashman 25 Year Vet of JPL
"Rocket Scientist 25-Year Veteran" by Bill Mayer --- You might say that Dr. William Hayward Pickering became a top scientist because the administration at Caltech was worried about the safety of its students. That was long ago. Now he sits in an office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the sign on the door shows the word "director" under his name. On his lapel there is a pin proclaiming for all to see that here is a man who has dedicated 25 years to rocketry. And his lieutenants number more than 3000. But the beginning was, in his words, a group of wild eyed graduate students in aeronautics. Pickering was then a teacher in electrical engineering full time, and occasionally he offered suggestions to the wild-eyed ones. JPL was not born yet. "It came eventually," Pickering recalled, "because the administration decided experiments with rockets were too dangerous on campus." The graduate students were not about to give up what they were doing. They were sure the possibilities of jet propulsion had not been exhausted in Fourth of July fireworks. To find a way to use all that power to make conventional engines obsolete, perhaps to probe outer space itself - these thoughts were substance for their dreams. Through those early years, until 1944 Pickering remained a friend to be called on when needed, to help when he could. But these were war times, and the war had made the visions of the wild-eyed respectable. In August, 1941, the United States registered its first jet-assisted take-off (JATO) at March Field. "So then," said Pickering, leaning back in his chair "we knew it was possible to get a plane into the air from a very small field. We could manage without long runways." Seventeen years ago Pickering started at JPL as what he calls "a kind of consultant." And from then on he spent more and more time there. He became director in 1954, at the age of 43. Along with Pickering four others have just received 25-year pins - William J. Cashman, (end of transcription) [Source credit: Pasadena Star News, Thursday, August 24, 1961, page 14]
