John J Cashon Sr Poem A Friend

A Friend

By John Jerome Cashon Sr

Oh show me the man who can stretch out his hand, That is honest and sincere to grasp, in your own, Not for the money you may lend nor to slander a friend, He is the same in business or at home or alone, There is a smile on his face there is never a trace, Of boredom or a casual bit of chatter, When you meet any place the smile don’t erase, For the time or the place doesn’t matter, You may travel the world many flags be unfurled, Or you can sail all the seas up to seven, But the man with the smile and the lip that’s not surled, There’s a friend that’s a great help towards heaven.

John J Cashon Sr Poem Dreams

Dreams

By John Jerome Cashon Sr.

There is a mysterious land that exists, That is reached by a pause in our breath, It is that mysterious land of the mists, That lies between a heart beat and death, Here our consciousness oft come to linger, For that moment to dream neath the stars, Thru a life time in the snap of a finger, See a review of this time of ours, See a review of our hopes and ambitions, Our mistakes with their heart aches and tears, Here our deeds and our many inhibitions, Reach their climax as we go back thru the years, We awake with a good resolution, As we return from the time of our birth, Where we often find a solution, As we are what we are actually worth

David Cashon Military Profile from book

On June 7, 1832, Congress enacted pension legislation extending benefits more universally than under any previous legislation. This act provided for full pay for life for all officers and enlisted men who served at least 2 years in the Continental Line, the state troops or militia, the navy or marines. Men who served less than 2 years but at least 6 months were granted pensions of less than full pay. Benefits were payable effective March 4, 1831, without regard to financial need or disability and widows or children of were entitled to collect any unpaid benefits due from the last payment to a veteran until his death. (Pension Acts An Overview of Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Legislation and the Southern Campaign Pension Transcription Project. By Will Graves)

David Cashon listed on the West Tennessee Pension Roll 1832

In 1832, David testified under oath about his time served in the war when he went before the Weakley County, Tennessee Courthouse to submit evidence of his enlistment to apply for a War Pension. This is a transcription from the pension application for my ancestor David Cashon describing his service in the Revolutionary War:

October 8, 1832, David Cashin, aged 74 years, made application before the justices of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for Weakley County, Tennessee, for a pension under the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832. Under oath he testified – That in the year 1775 in Chesterfield County, Virginia, in his 18th year, he enlisted in Minute Company for 12 months. This company was separate from militia companies, and those enlisted were bound for the term of enlistment to be always in readiness on a minute’s warning to go into service. During this enlistment in the year 1776 the company was called into service and continued for three or four months under Capt. Francis Goode and Lt. George Markham. The company marched from Chesterfield through Williamsburg and by Little York to Hampton, then by water to Portsmouth, Virginia, and remained there until its tour of duty expired. The members of the company then returned to the Militia Companies. In 1778 or 1779 while still living in Chesterfield County, Virginia, he was called out, or drafted, as one of the Chesterfield County Militia. With 25 other enlisted men he was engaged for three weeks in guarding about 50 British prisoners at Chesterfield Courthouse. Robert Elam commanded the Company of Guards. He was also engaged for two weeks either before or after the guarding of the prisoners, in guarding a magazine about six miles from Chesterfield Courthouse. January-February 1781 at the time the British first burned part of Richmond, he was again drafted in the Chesterfield Militia. Served one month. Rendezvoused opposite Richmond. Marched down the James River and discharged below Cabin Point. This service was under Capt. Haskins. Applicant stated that at above time every man capable of bearing arms was called out. April 1781 he was again drafted for no specific time “but as long as we were wanted out of the Militia of Chesterfield Co. against the British who had come and taken Petersburg in Virginia”. He went out under Capt. Haskins, Cols. Robertson and Betts (or Botts), and “during this time Gen. La Fayette took command of us”. Marched first to Petersburg, then to Richmond and at the end of eleven weeks were discharged in the month of June. August 1781 was drafted again in to the Militia of Chesterfield County, for three months. Marched through Petersburg, from there crossed the James River, then through Old Williamsburg to Little York and was present at the taking of Cornwallis. In service on this draft two and a half months. He testified that he did not remember serving with any Continental officers “except Major Boice and Dick and General Muhlenburg and Lawson who were with us at Petersburg in April 1781 and took command until Lafayette took command at Richmond”. He stated that he never received a written discharge as it was not customary for the militia to get regular discharges. He asserted that he knew of no living witness by whom he might prove his service excepting Burwell Cashin and Thomas Cashon who were then living in Mecklenburg Co., N.C. whose affidavits are appended to his application as well as a receipt from the Commisary General, dated Oct. 29, 1781, showing return of three muskets and other military supplies.

  1. Was doing a search on my great grand mother and saw this page. found a picture of her and my great grand father on here. Lucy Cashon, married to Edwards Woods. Where does she fit into you family?

  2. Hello John, you have a Pic of a young girl Virgina Ann Cashon with i believe your Great grand father, is that young girl the daughter of Everett Cashon ? if so that would be my Aunt.

    • Hello Reuben, I have been working on that. My dad told me that Virginia Ann was Annalee’s daughter. I don’t have a record on Everett, but I would love to learn more about him for my research. It is great meeting another Cashon.

  3. Everette was my grand father he married Rolinda (nell) Pickard and they had 9 children Reuben,Rupert,Donald,Gary,Jerry,Russell,Dickie Wayne,James Edward And Virgina Ann. I am planning a trip to Dukedom Later this year to visit a cematary where the Family is buried. i get back as far as Pulaski but some how how it all switches tracks in that area hoping to figure some things out and meet some of my family i have never known.

    • Yes, Dukedom is where we started in this region with David and Pleasant. Maybe my research can help you fill in the gaps. I have a lot from that time period. Where I have gaps is where Ancestry.com doesn’t list the last couple of generations for privacy, but I have been able to get some information from meeting other Cashon’s online.

  4. my tree on ancestry has all of the family from my children up . and i am not private my username is reubencashon hopefully that will help you in some way. i get confused where there is two fathers listed for John C. one is Pulaski and the other is pheasant. i do not know which one is correct. can you help with that .

    • Pulaski was David Cashon’s son from his marriage with his last wife, Sarah Harwell. So he would have been Pleasant’s younger half brother. John Caroll Cashon, born on Aug 1858 in Tennessee, was Pulaski’s son. My user name on Ancestry is jcashon67, and if you would like, I can send you a report from Family Tree Maker to your email or on Facebook.

  5. HEY JOHN. I noticed on Pulaski cashon’s grave is said he was born in 1830. i know David Boyd had 3 wives and he was son of Sarah David’s third wife. That would make David 72 when he had him.. Is that possible? also do you have a picture of gravsite of Jerome Cashon and also John Jerome Cashon..I found alot of other members of the family. I am putting some of my family in Find a Grave and that is where I found gravesites for Pulaski Cashon at Good Springs.
    Let me know if you can answer any of these questions. I had Pulaski born 1818 but if his grave site says 1830, then usually I am inclined to believe that except the fact that his dad would be elderly.

    • Hey Gale! I don’t have access currently for Pulaski’s birth, but I believe it is accurate. If you have a subscription to Ancestry.com, there may be more records that I don’t have for Pulaski. As far as Jerome Cashon, I believe he was buried in the Blalock Cemetery in Pilot Oak, Kentucky, north of Dukedom. I haven’t found it yet, but I plan on searching. John Jerome, my grandfather, was buried in Covington, Kentucky, I believe. I will ask some in our family for more info.

  6. it’s obvious that we have the same family line. my 4th great grandfather was Burrel cashion who fought in the revolution I read about David Cashon on Larry Washam’s private family history on ANCESTRY . COM. if you e mail him he will give you permission to access our site. My line is the Washam line who married Dicey Cashion. I am 92.
