    This building, located at109 Summit Street Burlington, VT, was the home of James E. Cashman and family from about 1921 to 1937. It is now part of the campus of Champlain College. The original owner, Oliver O. Presbry, who built the house in 1895, lived there until 1921. The house was then occupied by various families, most notably James Cashman, Burlington City Engineer. In the late 1930's the house was converted to apartments. Champlain College purchased the house in 1994, converted it to student housing and named it Schillhammer Hall.

    Notes 
    • Bernard Donald Cashman enlisted in the US Army on 5 Jul 1939 as part of the Infantry. At the time of the 1940 US Census, Bernard was a 2nd Lt. in the 16th Infantry stationed at Fort Jay, NY. He was released on 22 Mar 1947.

      He married Thelma Kuulei Buchanan, sometime between 1946 and 1948. Thelma was born in Hawaii in 1916.

      In 1948, Bernard was living with his wife and mother, Ada, at Ada's home on 396 South Union Street in Burlington, VT. One year later, Thelma was no longer living with Bernard and Ada.

      In 1949, Bernard, was a surveyor with A. W. Hoag & Associates.

      In 1951, Bernard and his mother, Ada, were living at 35 Bay View Street in Burlington, VT.

      Four years after being released from the Army, he enlisted again, on 14 Feb 1951, as a member of the Engineers. He was released from service on 20 Feb 1953.

      In 1954, Bernard, his wife, Marie, and his mother, Ada, were living together at 35 Bay View Street, Burlington, VT.

      If Marie didn't start living with Benard until 1954, then is the marriage date of 1950 accurate?

Ah, the trade school is being represented by the beardless youth. Bennie has always been a firm defender of that part of our institution and is disgusted with those who take what he calls "snap" courses. Steamer has been an actor of late and seems headed for a life of doctor's roles. Bennie says he may shave enough so that he can get a job in construction work.
