    Notes 
    • Henry A. Cashman, the 17-year-old son of Mr and Mrs John Cashman of 49 Cross st, West Quincy, died suddenly on the evening of September 9, 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. [Source credit: collection of Catherine Cronin]
      Henry's funeral was attended by Mayor William T. Shea and Supt of Streets Michael E. Shea. This was 18 years before the Sheas and Cashmans were joined by the marriage of William Francis Cashman and Alice Mary Shea. [4, 6]

    In June of 1901, Hannah M. Cashman purchased a piece of property on Hough's Neck in Quincy. This photograph may have been taken that first summer to commemerate the new acquisition. At the turn of the century, Hough's Neck was one of the premiere resorts in the United States. Old family photographs such as this one suggest that 20 Bay View Avenue, or "Cedar Bluff" as it was called, was a popular summer gathering place for the wife, children and grandchildren of John Cashman from 1901 to 1919. The structure was built in 1892 and was set high on a rise overlooking Quincy Bay. Adjacent to the house was a steep slope where the family played games and posed for pictures. A flight of steep wooden stairs led from the house to the beach. The original house from 1892 is still in existence, although it has been recently renovated. Seated on the lawn, from L to R: William J. Cashman, Hannah Cashman, Helen Cashman, Catherine Adeline Cashman, Henry A. Cashman, unknown girl, Anna Beatrice Cashman.

    This photo appeared on page 4 of Mary Reardon's Creation a booklet published by the South Shore Art Center in 2000, to honor the life and works of artist Mary Reardon. The caption under this photo reads, "A Cashman family gathering at their summer house on the Quincy shore, about 1905." As the sign in the upper right corner indicates, this photo was taken at "Cedar Bluff," the Cashman family's summer home at 20 Bayview Avenue in Hough's Neck, Quincy. [NOTE of Donna J. Goldstein: based on the apparent age of Henry A. Cashman, it is believed that a more accurate date for this photo would be 1901-1902] Back row, L to R: Anna Beatrice Cashman, Daniel B.

    It is believed that this impromptu family photo was taken on the occasion of the christening (or a few months after the birth) of William J. Cashman Jr., first child of William J. Cashman Sr. and Anna Zita Barry. This photo captures all of John and Hannah Cashman's children with the exception of the oldest, Adeline Cashman Dalton, who by 1905 was married and living in Sandwich on the Cape. Standing, from L to R: Mary Agnes Cashman, Helen Frances Cashman, James Eugene Cashman, John Joseph Cashman, Henry A. Cashman. Squatting, L to R: Anna Beatrice Cashman, William Joseph Cashman Sr. holding William Joseph Cashman Jr., and Anna Zita Barry. William J. Cashman Jr. was born in March of 1905. The clothing, foliage and size of the infant suggest that this photo was taken during the summer of 1905. [Photo credit: collection of Jean Cashman (1926-2005) courtesy of Brian Cashman]

    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."
