    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH of WILLIAM CASHMAN:

      William Cashman was born November 4, 1859, in Hanover, MA, as the eighth child of James Cashman and Catherine Long. He was their fifth child born in the US. He grew up on the family farm in Hanover and at age 29, moved to Quincy to live and work with his contractor brother, John, in West Quincy. He soon became overseer for John.

      Family lore tells us that, some years before he was married, William was working a job in Scituate, MA, building a breakwater at the mouth of Scituate harbor, for the Corps of Engineers (by coincidence, the same breakwater that Jay Cashman rebuilt for the Corps of Engineers 100 years later). While in Scituate he stayed at a hotel on Beaver Dam Road, which is now known as The Inn at Scituate Harbor. That summer, a young Mary Murphy happened to be working at the hotel. Although she always claimed that she was a guest of the hotel, Mary's daughter-in-law, Alice, believed she was actually working there as a chambermaid. William and Mary met at the hotel and were married in 1891 in Scituate. After the wedding, the newlyweds settled into the home William built at 117 Cross Street.

      Around the turn of the century, William went into business for himself, selling coal and wood in the winter and ice in the summer. The large yard of William Cashman & Sons was situated at the corner of Furnace and Willard Streets in West Quincy. William's business was very successful, as this was an era when coal was the primary fuel for heating homes. The Quincy Historical Society has on display an ice pick, stamped with the logo "William Cashman & Sons, Inc." The ice pick, a form of advertisement, shows that William possessed marketing savvy. In addition to his retail business, William was contracted to build the sewer systems at Milton and Hyde Park and served as Public Weigher on the Quincy City Council.

      Sometime between 1935 and 1940, the Cashmans moved to Scituate. They purchased a house on the corner of Beaver Dam Road and Hatherly, where they eventually took up permanent residence. The house was later passed to their son Eddie, who in turn sold it to his brother William, Jr.

      Brothers William and John must have enjoyed a close relationship because they worked together, lived next door to each other on Cross Street in Quincy and they are buried next to each other at St. Mary's Cemetery. When John Cashman died in 1913, William commissioned a floral tribute that was "the biggest floral 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." In life and death they were side by side most of their life.

      Unfortunately, William died from pneumonia in 1918 at the age of 58, when his son Edward was 22 and his son William Jr., was only 17. Eddie and William's widow, Mary, continued to run the business for four or five more years. After that, we don't know what happened. Seven years after the death or her husband, Mary died from diabetes at age 65.
    • (Research):In 1893, William Cashman met with a serious accident. He was superintending a blast which he fired and then got behind a rock to shield himself. The force of the blast threw the rock over onto him injuring his spine and arm and it is thought also injuring him internally. He was taken to his home on Cross street and Dr. Shehan summoned who pronounced his injuries of a very serious nature.

      In 1894, William Cashman was building a railroad in Ipswich. In 1898, William Cashman placed a bid of $18, 822 for the Quincy sewer system.

      In 1899, William Cashman placed a bid of $15, 852.20 for 10,000 feet of sewer at Wollaston.

      In 1904, William Cashman has received the contract for building a sewer at Hyde Park.

      When asked to name an intimate friend on his Forester insurance application, he chose his brother, John Cashman.

      The William Cashman Coal Company Inc. was dissolved in 1931. [8]

    Floral arrangements from the funeral of John Cashman displayed around his grave at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Quincy, MA, on March 29, 1913, the day of his funeral. One Quincy newspaper article described the floral display as "one of the largest and finest ever seen in this city and it necessitated four carriages to transport these 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 floral 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." William Cashman's floral tribute can be seen on the right hand side of this photo.  The mat bears the imprint of Nerses Studio, 1507 Hancock St., Quincy, MA.

    Quincy Patriot - William Cashman met with a serious if not fatal accident Tuesday afternoon. He was superintending a blast which he fired and then got behind a rock to shield himself. The force of the blast threw the rock over onto him injuring his spine and arm and it is thought also injuring him internally. He was taken to his home on Cross street and Dr. Shehan summoned who pronounced his injuries of a very serious nature.
