11/12/12 Wilfred Alexander Cushnie (wilf.cushnie@shaw.ca)
Comments: Just a little note to all you Cushnies out there and to all you "friends of Cushnies" too. I am still alive and well and living in West Vancouver Canada. You can send me a cheque anytime you wish and I primise to cash it just as quick as I can .... Thank you ..!! The bigger the better. As for the rest ... Well, I have re-married after the death of my wife Paola (Coacci) Cushnie on February 26, 1996 and now to Charlotte Taylor - adopted to Jack Secord of Oakville/Ancaster Ontario. Charlotte and I were married about 5 years ago.... While she has no children I have Richard Beaumont Alexander my son and now his two daughters Rowan and Marlow ... and no boys yet .... and I have a daughter Elizabeth Leticia who is now married to Mark Forsythe of Mission, British Columbia. They have no children yet and likely may not have as Mark has some children from a previous marriage .... I am now in my 62nd year ... born May 2, 1950 and contemplating retirement ... thus the desire to obtain as many cheques as possible from friends, relatives and just about anyone who has a bit of spare cash.... I will not hold my breath in waiting ...mmm My father Alexander and my mother still live in Brantford Ontario as does my sister Mary Margaret (Mansour). She has apparently written another book to add to other stuff she does ... and she is always busy ... so you may find her publications by searching Mary Mansour Cushnie next time you hit the bookstore. Charlotte, my wife was adopted by the Secord family in Oakville/Burlington Ontario. Her original name was Taylor but she and her two sisters have not been able to get their family background...a bit secret when you are adopted .... Jack Secord is a direct ancestor of "Laura Secord" who saved the British and Canadian forces at Stoney Creed in the battle of 1812 or thereabouts. She is somewhat famous and well known in Canadian history. Charlotte and her two sisters ... Penny and Susan would like to find out who their real Taylor relatives were but it seems to be way too hard somehow and those relatives would be in Ontario likely and not way out here in British Columbia so it is hard to do the research from way out here .... Anyway, Happy Christmas and new 2012/2013 year to everyone .... Best Regards .... Wilfred A. Cushnie, 1605 - 2020 Bellevue Avenue, West Vancouver, B. C. Canada, V7V1B8

07/14/12 G Richardson (gcsrichardson@gmail.com)
Comments: Hi there, I have a question. Since The Cushnie Family has Scottish roots and lived in St Andrew Jamaica too does anyone know about the Richardson family from St Andrew Jamaica? My grandfather was James Maria Richadson son of a Scot i believe originated from Perth Scotland. I was wondering as there might have been close contact between the Scottish/ Jamaican People? I would be very happy if anyone had some information on this. My father passed away this Year and my search is not leading to anything. My Grandfather James Maria Richardson was married to Mrs. Carey. Emily Matilda Carey née Richardson. They live in St Andrew and I believe it was on Half Way Tree Road. Thank You very much for the Information. Reading this website makes me warm inside. So many Cushnies and all so loving and respectful towards each other. Kind Regards X gina richardson (gcsrichardson@gmail.com)

07/04/12 PETER WATT CUSHNIE (peter.cushnie@btinternet.com)
Comments: Hi I am trying to trace any relatives I may have in the Dundee area. My grandfather Alexander Cushnie was born in Dundee in the early 1900's. His mother was married 4 times - according to family legend! He moved to Aberdeen, married & went on to have 3 children - John, Alexander & Patricia. I have very little to go on in respect of dates - and my father Alexander Jnr is now suffering from advanced Alzheimers Disease - and unable to help me with this family search. If anyone can shed some light on this part of my family, I would be very greatful.

06/19/12 Wilfred Cushnie (wilf.cushnie@shaw.ca)
Comments: Greetings from West Vancouver, Canada. It has been a long time since I have left anything on this site so here is some info. I married Charlotte about four years ago now and we have been living in West Vancouver just by the ocean in an apartment overlooking Stanley Park and the lions Gate Bridge. I am still working at Canada Revenue Agency as an Appraiser and still enjoy the work. Charlotte is artistic, enjoys some painting and collecting fine art, glass and crystal and fine ceramics. We have a nice and growing collection of Japanese porclain figurines, and a fairly large and still growing set of Rossetti Spring Violets dishes made in japan ... but no longer in production so what is out there is all that ever will be available.... We have been taking a few trips to Washington State just south of us and to the Oregon Coast and the interior of Washington State ...looks the like Grand Canyon over there... to the Grand Coulee Dam area on the Columbia river ... that river runs down through the British Columbia Kootenay area ... a mountainous country and valley ... a great river now controlled for enormous irrigation in the USA and Canada.... really something to see ... hundreds of thousands of acres under irrigation from that great river and endless miles of apples and other fine tree fruits ... orchards and ranches etc and a great playground in the lakes and river systems.... So the winter was fine... a bit wet as we get a bit of rain most of the winter down in the lower areas but snow up on the surrounding mountains just north of us... We ski when we can and really enjoy that ... Whistler and Blackcomb are wonderlands for skiers so if you get a chance try them out.... Richard my son has two little girls now ,,,, Rowan and Marlow aged 6 and 4 and Elizabeth my daughter is married too but as yet has no little people of her own. My father Alexander and mother Thelma now live in Brantford Ontario close to my sister Mary Mansour who has beeh writing some books that you might find available under the name Mary Mansour Cushnie ... i believe they are about Vanpires or something ...mmm... anyway, she is busy with her growing family ... and I understand one of her two boys is about to become a father himself.... All my uncles are still living. George my fathers older brother, florence the sister and James and Donald and kenneth.. Age is having more to say about what they do now but that is to be expected. They all still live in Ontario so I do not get to see them very often...So, if you would like to write the best way to catch me is to email and my address is| wilf.cushnie@shaw.ca and phone number or cell is| 604-787-0546. best regards to everyone .... Wilfred and Charlotte Cushnie June 19, 2012.

Comments: Hello, My name is Paul Dillon and I was looking for members of my family. My mother Lucille Cushnie-Curtis has a sister by the name of Nadia Cushnie, and I saw her name on this website. I was wondering if this Nadia is the same Nadia that is my aunt. You may contact me either way at dpauldi@gmail.com thanks

06/04/12 Stephanie O'Daniel (stephaniodaniel@gmail.com)
Comments: Hi family and greetings to Steven Baker regarding a reunion in Washington, PA. Steven, anyone in the family can plan and host a family reunion anywhere they decide to have one. Get creative, find a site, a town, a country, a state, and get busy planning it and send out invitations. If its done early enough, it gives relatives time to plan around their usual summer activities. So, good luck, looking forward to seeing an invite to Wasington, Pennsylvania or any place else you might decided to host one.

05/05/12 Jennifer Cushnie Chin-Young (chinyoungjennifer@yahoo.com)
Comments: Please accept my sincere condolence and that of my sister Angie, our husbands and children. Sister Tiny was very dear to me. I have fond memories of her from my early days spending summers in Cross Keys, and later in New York. We had fun going to her favourite shopping areas on Utica Avenue, among other places. I had to try very hard to keep up with her. She was so energetic! I cannot recall ever hearing her complain of even a head ache. She was truly blessed with good health. She was a firm, yet very gentle and kind person. I loved her dearly. We are grieving now, but we can be comforted with the knowledge that our aunt, mom, grandmother and friend is with our Lord. My sincere love and God's richest blessings to the rest of the family. Your cousin. Jennifer

10/29/11 Jim Cushnie (james.cushnie@rbcdexia.com)
Comments: Mr George Alexander Cushnie - March 3, 2010 It is with great sadness that we said goodbye to our father and grandfather and your friend George on Wednesday, March 3, 2010. George was born July 26, 1932 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As a graduate of The University of Manitoba (Bachelor of Commerce), he began his career in leasing at IAC. He met and married Vi (predeceased October 2007). After relocating a few times, the family finally settled in the Toronto area in 1961. George went on to a long and successful management career at Simpsons, then Page Flooring before retiring. As an only child, George cherished his time surrounded by his family. He will always be lovingly remembered by his son Jim Cushnie (Joan and grandchildren Leigh Lahti (Tyler), Drew and Amber), his daughter Sandra Bowser (Doug and grandchildren Kally, Julie, Tessa and Josee), his daughter Heather Mayhew (Michael and grandchildren Carly and Patrick). George leaves the legacy of being a strong, loving, and kind gentleman who supported and cared for us all deeply. Not just a sports fan, George was an avid curler and golfer. He will be remembered by dear friends Jack and Marg Holman and many others from the former Avonlea Curling Club and Scarboro Golf and Country Club. He proudly gave back to his community and served as a Rotarian with the North Scarborough Rotary Club. He will be remembered fondly for his friendly good nature and his competitiveness. The family extends our gratitude to the staff at Abbeylawn Manor for the respect, wonderful care and kindness they gave to George. Our family will receive friends and family at a gathering to share memories and to celebrate Georges life on Saturday, March 6 from 11a.m. to 2p.m. at McEachnie Funeral Home, 28 Old Kingston Rd, Pickering Village, Ajax (905-428-8488). In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorial donations be made to the Rouge Valley Health System  Ajax site. Online book of condolence may be signed below.

Those dates are open basically - meaning - stay one day or two, etc. We kinda do our own thing while but one day is set aside to celebrate Ed's birthday and Uncle Eddie's [Edmund Grant] birthday at the pavillon near pond and in-door pool, in the back of the motel. Ed and I bring food but anyone coming can bring something to eat and drink. There are grills as well to cook food. Ed will send out emails to you let you know exactly when. Hope to see you there. You can also call us [301] 424-0687.

Comments: My father, the late George Ross Cushnie (1912-1981) from Aberdeen, Scotland, always said that all Cushnies are related. Is this true? I send you the following information in the hope of finding out. Most information re family in Scotland has been lost over the years.

His father was Peter Cushnie, married to Eliza Jane Adam in 1910. My grandfather was a laundry manager. My father obtained his U.S. citizenship in 1931. He never returned to Scotland. He lived with two aunts, Elizabeth and Margaret Cushnie. Does any of thisstrike any chords? Photos are available. Thanks! Peter Cushnie Milford, Connecticut USA

I know William's father was Edward (but there are many Edwards, so I need to have his mother's name to identify the correct Edward). William married Frances. Their children were Elizabeth Louise born 21.5.1849 who married Charles D'Aquin; Rosalie b. 31.5.1853; Catherine b. 27.5.1855; George William (my grgrandfather) b. 27.3.1859 who married Olivia; James Joseph b.22.4.1861 who married Christiana Neita; Francis Samuel b. 22.6.1863; Thomas Samuel b. 09.08.1869 who married Jane Ann Cowan. WILLIAM, widower, aged 55 married Rebecca Wilson, Feb. 15, 1881 at St. Mary's Chapel, Above Rocks. WILLIAM's father is shown as Edward Cushnie on his second marriage certificate, but I need to identify which Edward. Please email me if you have any information regarding WILLIAM and Edward's full parentage.. Molly

This crook Mr. Camarra Ben, said that he is trying to locate relatives so that he can give them the millions of dollars that (James Cushnie)the deceased, left in a bank account. My relatives, this is a LIE! This is yet another scam! Do not give any personal details to this evil person. It is clearly another of the many mails which are being sent out by an individual or a group who have tricked innocent individuals. Please don't be fooled!

01/26/09 Chris Duff (chris.duff3@sympatico.ca)
Comments: Additional information on the forebears of Mary Anne Cushnie who married Sir Alexander Morison in 1799. I can't go further back than Patrick Cushnie, a haberdasher in Aberdeen and who died at Stonehaven in 1798. He had married Anne Stratton in 1743 and had five children - Thomas (1744-1788) who died in Jamaica. He married but had no children; Peter, born 1746, died in infancy; Alexander (1748-1798), of whom more later; Anna, born 1749, married Mr. Burns, no children; Peter (1752-1790),died at Stonehaven where he farmed. Peter married Elizabeth Stratton, a niece (?) to the above Anne Stratton, and they had three children - Anne, who married but had no children; Alexander Cushnie, who died in Jamaica without issue; and Patrick Cushnie of Montrose who died in 1869. Coming back to Alexander Cushnie (1748-1798), he went to Jamaica and was the owner of Windsor Castle Farm. He married Mary Herdman in Scotland and had two children who died in infancy and one daughter, Mary Anne, who survived and married Sir Alexander Morison. Which is where we came in! A note about the Stratton's. George Stratton, born circa 1690, had six sons - Thomas b.1731, John, William b.1730, Robert, James and Alexander, all of whom went to Jamaica between 1740 and 1756. Alexander married and his daughter Elizabeth married Peter Cushnie (see above). George Stratton's only daughter Ann Stratton married Patrick Cushnie (see above) in 1743. The bad news from all this is there are no descendants of this Cushnie family, as the last male Patrick Cushnie of Montrose died in 1869. What is interesting is that the Cushnie name remains in Jamaica, so other Cushnies must have gone there. Any ideas, anyone?

01/18/09 Chris Duff (chris.duff3@sympatico.ca)
Comments: Just found this lovely site! My 5Great-Grandfather John Murison had a son, Andrew Murison (my 5Great-Uncle) who married Mary Herdman. They had a son, Alexander Morison (yes, with an 'o') who became Sir Alexander and who married Mary Anne Cushnie, daughter of Alexander Cushnie of Aberdeen and Windsor Castle Farm, Jamaica. Alexander and Mary had a large family, many of whom died young or were unmarried. One of their sons was Alexander Cushnie Morison (1813-1861)who married Margaret Gordon Maclennan (1825-1907). Their children were Alexander Blackhall-Morison (1850-1927), Basil Gordon Morison (1854-1915) and Mary Morison (1857-1926). Alexander Blackhall-Morison (AB-M) was a doctor of medicine, as were his brother Basil, his father Alexander Cushnie, his uncle Thomas Coutts and his grandfather, Sir Alexander Morison (of whom Dr Nick Hervey is writing a biography). AB-M left with the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh a collection of family documents. One is a manuscript genealogy of the Morisons, which was the basis of his book "The Blackhalls of That Ilk and Barra" published in 1905. In this manuscript is a family tree showing Sir Alexander's and Mary Anne Cushnie's children: Andrew, John, Leopold, Henry, Margaret, Mary H., Mary E., all died young. Anne and Charlotte did not marry; Thomas Coutts Morison died unmarried in Australia; Jane married Rev. John Summers; Somerville married Barron Grahame of Kincardineshire; Sarah married Charles Nicoll; Frances married Edward Hutton. David James Cushnie notes that Alexander Cushnie Morison died on military service with the East India Company. AB-M fills this out in his book referred to above, saying Alexander Cushnie was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in England and entered the military service of the Honorable East India Company. He died on 5 Feb 1861 on his return from India invalided at Anchorfield Cottage, on the Murison/Morison family estate of Anchorfield in Newhaven, on the northern outskirks of Edinburgh. In the parish churchyard at Currie, south of Edinburgh, can be seen a large stone, more a monument, at the burial place of Sir Alexander Morison and his wife Mary Anne Cushnie, together with some of their children.

I am still doing research on this and will advise as I progress.

Comments: Two changes have been made to Cushnie.org. The most significant change is that a "News" button has been added to the main menu. This section will contain headlines and links to articles from newspapers around the globe that mention Cushnies. Articles will remain on the page for a couple of weeks and will then be retired. Second, the family directory has been removed. It was too difficult for me to keep it up to date and I got complaints that it increased spam for the people that were listed. Love to all the Cushnies. Please continue to post messages, even if it is just to say hi.

01/25/08 Molly Cushnie (mcushnie8@yahoo.com)
Comments: Esmie (Mimi) Verona Cushnie Walker, 93 years old, joined her deceased husband (Adolphus Alfonso Walker, former Deputy Mayor of Kingston, Jamaica (late 50s-60s), Councilor for Central St. Andrew, Justice of the Peace and successful businessman) on Saturday, January 19, 2008. She was the eldest daughter of Edward Cushnie and Elise Marie Hylton Cushnie of Above Rocks, St. Catherine. She leaves behind six children: Trevor (wife Merle) (USA.); Phylis (Canada); Mrs. Dorien (Dimples) Smith (husband Leonard) (UK); Lansford (wife Yvonne) (Canada); Miles (wife Jackyline) (USA); and Mrs. Linda (Molly) Esty (husband Clive) (Canada); daughter-in-law Rema (Cherrie), Tammy, Kathy and son-in-law Owen; grand, great, and great great grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, grand, great, and great great grandnieces and nephews; other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by sons: Carlton, Aubrey, Ivor, Donovan (Ricky) and daughter Mrs. Gloria Patricia (Cher) Clarke. She was warm hearted, hospitable, generous, independent, with a wonderful sense of humor, and devoted to her church and family. She was known for her excellent designing abilities. She was health conscious and some of us wondered if she had found the fountain of youth as she could read without glasses, had an unlined skin and looked much, much younger than her chonological age. She lived in Canada for many years. Following the 2005 Cushnie family reunion in Canada, she decided to return to the land of her birth, Jamaica. She lived with her beloved niece, Vodlyn (June) Cushnie McIntosh, in St. Elizabeth, until recently. Funeral services will take place at Andrews Memorial Church, Hope Road, Kingston on Thursday, January 31, 2008, at 10:00 a.m. Internment will be at Dovecot. Molly

09/04/06 Amy Lennane (aclennane@yahoo.com)
Comments: Hello All, I'm in search of the family of Helen Cushnie who married James Craig in 1863, Old Machar, Aberdeen, Scotland. Helen was born 19 October 1840 in Whitebruntland, Portlethen, Kincardine, Scotland and died 22 July 1919 in St. Nicholas, Aberdeen. According to her marriage certificate her parents were James Cushnie and Margaret Masson (deceased). I understand that father James may have been born in Durris c.1798. Also, Helen Cushnie had a brother, James, b. 26 Nov 1838, possibly a sister, Christian, b.c. 1834,and according to a Will I found "half sisters" named Christina Petrie Stuart, and Margaret Stuart who were born c.1831 and 1834. I have not been able to find any info on Helen's parents or siblings. Any of you Cushnies heard of my people? Any help appreciated. Thanks! Amy

Perhaps Eddie was named for our grandfather, Edward. I am not sure. I have said all that to say this: This young man is very much a part of our family. We know him and love him. Give him my regards, Aunt Molly

Comments: Dear Sir or Madam, I met a student recently at Hampton University, he said his father's name was Edward Cushnie, son of Leon Cushnie. His grandmother's name was Elize Cushnie. He has an uncle in Canada by the name of Delroy Cushnie. His father lives in Virginia Beach, VA. I was searching the family history and their names are not mentioned in the family history.

Comments: Clare: I am so glad to hear from you though sorry to hear that George is not well. We missed you all so much at the Toronto reunion. Approx. 70 persons attended mainly from England, U.S.A., and Jamaica. On another note, Lintz is back in LA. Lintz is a teacher and the Board of Education requested that teachers return to the classroom in LA or lose their jobs, so although Lintz had made the decision to stay in Atlanta and was job hunting, it seemed politic to return to LA. I haven't heard anything more about Rehema apart from two emails. Rehema also lived in LA. Joy very kindly sent me some photographs of the Toronto reunion for which I thank her. Trevor, my deceased sister, Yvonne's, youngest son, got married recently. I had dinner a couple of weeks ago with Sharon Cushnie and Lintz at the Atlanta airport. And Clare, for us you are a real Cushnie not just the wife of George. You are very special and dear to us and we love you all. Please take care of yourself as you continue to take care of George. Much Love, Molly

I have no children but the children that I have taught over the years have become my children.

Batool is Russian. Kevin is an English teacher, who was born in the U.K. but who now lives and works in Damascus. Soumayyah's grandparents on her father's side of the family are Janet Richardson Morris and Lloyd Morris. Her grgrandparents were Katherine (Kathy) Cushnie Richardson and John Richardson. Kathy's sister, Esmie Cushnie Walker, continues to reside in Canada. The proud grandparents, Janet and Lloyd, who went to Damascus for the birth of Soumayyah, are now back in the U.K. Who knows, perhaps we will see pictures of Soumayyah at the reunion in Toronto this July.

Comments: This is a great idea! I am willing to provide assistance, as much as I can from New Jersey, to help the planners out! So, please include me in your email string! Hopefully, we will have many who will travel to meet their "family!" I should be finalizing summer classes by then, and attend the festibites! I think I deserve a party for all my hard work! Also, I would like my Mother to met her Aunt Esmie. I think this would be one of the best things, since she is in her 80s, and has not known her Dad, Enos' family, because they all were in Canada and Jamaica. Also, I found a book in Barnes and Nobles on the "Scottish Clans and Family Encyclopedia, by George Way of Plean and Romilly Squire; it was in the value book section; and cost $20.00 US Well there is an entry about the Cushnies under the entry name of Lumsden. I haven't had time to review much, due to two papers due and an exam pending, but I will review and post what I learn... GOOD LUCK WITH THE PLANNING! PS. Marjorie and Danville on their marriage, when we spoke you mentioned a wedding, however, you did not mention that it was yours! Congratulations and many blessings from God for happiness, love and longevity!

Comments: Best wishes to Dr. Marjorie Cushnie Vassell and congratulations to Danville Davidson on their marriage on December 18th, 2004 in Kingston, Jamaica. The Jamaican Observer stated that: "Computer specialist Danville Davidson wed his long-time love, friend and political colleague Dr. Marjorie Vassell in an intimate ceremony at the Stella Maris Chapel on Saturday conducted by Rev. Fr. Michael Lewis. The happy couple Danville and Marjorie Davidson posed for photos with Edward Seaga, Leader of the Opposition, and his wife Carla..." Marjorie is the daughter of Olga Cushnie Vassell Porter and the niece of Mrs. Rita Cushnie Richards, and Sr. Mary Caritas. Those of us who were on the 2001 Cushnie Family reunion to Jamaica will remember meeting Marjorie, Olga and Sr. Mary Caritas in Above Rocks, St. Catherine. We wish Marjorie and Danville a long and happy life together. Molly

Comments: Belated Holiday Greetings to all the Cushnies and other related kinfolk! I apologize for not writing earlier, but I have been finalizing my winter courses at Rutgers. I am saddened to learn that we have lost two elders in our clan. I wish to extend my own heartfelt words of sympathy to the families. As Michael Cushnie expressed it is SO IMPORTANT for us to take time to learn from our elders, because before we know it time has passed and so has our main historians, our elders... If you do not seek your lineage for yourself, do it for your grandchildren and the greatgrands!!! To Lynn Wareham Howell,one of the missing siblings is my grandfather, Enos George Cushnie, who married Anne Mattis Cushnie. Unfortunatley, they passed several years ago. I believe I spoke to you during Eulaleee's wake in NY. They had three children, my mother Myrtle M. Cushnie Jackson, who had (me)KymYvette and my sister, Rehema (Phyllis); my aunt, Doris M. Cushnie Collins, William (Bill) Nichols is her son and our cousin, but, he is my first cousin; and George Enos Cushnie,(deceased), who had two children Robert Enos Cushnie and Gail A.Cushnie. So, we are related as cousins. If you speak with Esmie, she knows the family tree about the Cushnie siblings, since she is a great-aunt, and has a great wealth of information. Good luck!

Comments: Blessings to all Cushnies, their relatives and friends at this start to another year. Let us seek to live and to really Love in the present. George Cushnie, of Portmore, St.Catherine Jamaica, passed away peacefully over the holiday season. The funeral provided a rare occasion for his children Levi, Hermine, Shirley and Winston to meet, as well as some grand-children, including myself, who had not encountered one another before. So, we continue this journey . . .

09/15/04 Molly Cushnie (mcushnie8@yahoo.com)
Comments: Thanks for asking, Nathan, and for your prayers on behalf of Jamaica. I have been calling around to friends and family members in Jamaica and so far so good. I have heard reports of property damage but all lives were spared, though I understand that there were 15 deaths on the Island. I have also been checking www.emjamusa.org for regular updates on the Hurricane. In the Weekly Gleaner which we get in New York and on the Jamaican website mentioned above, I have noticed that the Prime Minister of Jamaica P.J. Patterson announced that Danville Walker, the director of elections, will be reassigned to head a special task force operating under the newly-announced Office of National Reconstruction (ONR) to spearhead programmes for the recovery from Hurricane Ivan. Danville Walker is the grandson of Esmie Cushnie Walker, my aunt, and the son of the late Carlton Walker and Cherry Walker. I am pleased to know that a family member is involved in the reconstruction work that needs to be done. In some parts of the Island, houses were washed away, there was widespread flooding, a lack of electricity and shortage of water. However, the tourist industry has suffered no significant negative impact from Hurricane Ivan. All the Very Best to you Nathan. Molly

Comments: Dear Cousins: I'm just getting around to checking out the website. My brother was at the most recent reunion (8/14) and hopefully, he updated some of our portion of the family's information. The website is great and it's amazing to realize that there are so many more of us out there. I'll start by giving my information. I am daughter to Helene Spencer Wareham and Alton Wareham. Helene is the daughter of Undine Cushnie (Spencersister to Constance, Clarence George, Leopole, Lionel, Dorit, Den and two other siblings whose names we're not sure of.) I was born July 12, 1952 and married Dennis Howell in 1974. We had twin sons-Taiwo Azikwe Sule Howell and Kehinde Atiba Jaja Howell on June 15, 1977. We divorced in 1980. Taiwo has three sons (two of whom are by his current wife Donora Willamoni Howell: Aki Howell (11/11/97)-by his first wife Mary Guess; Shelemo Howell (11/4/00) and Benyamin Howell (3/18/03) by Donora. He also has a stepson, Alex Maxey (6/12/97). Kehinde has no children yet. I think that's pretty much all for me for now. Just wanted to let you know I'm sorry I missed the reunion, would love to see a more complete family tree and will do whatever I can to help that happen. I can be reached at the e-mail address above. Greetings to all of our Cushnies near and far.

Comments: Hello, Everyone! First, I wish to thank David for the information, I will get back to you, if I have further questions. But, I have noticed that one more of my "missing" family has converged on the website (thanks George!) Hello, Bonni and Malik, I am glad to see that you have contacted this site, because your family has been trying to locate you! I am your cousin, and the daughter of your Grandmother Doris' sister Myrtle. I am currently taking care of Myrtle and I have recently spoken with your brother, Khalil. I am glad to have found you, because Gail and I have been trying to locate you, guys! PLease email me at my email address, because I have not seen Bonni since she was 12 years old, and unfortunately, Malik, you were born while I was in the military. I hope that you will contact me, so we can arrange a family meeting. You "cgildren" have been gone for a extremely longtime from the family, an it is time to return "home!" I understand there are several new generations that have been born into our family, and it saddens me to think that I do not know them and they do not know me. I hope that we will be able to reunite, again for the future generations, because we have a "large family, now, and it would be a shame to let this opportunity disappear, again. I have traveled the world, and I have always found it hard to know I had family that I do not know. It has been my mission to reunite our family, because our grand and great-grandparents would not like that we hadbecome sooo distant. Please email me, and begin a new road, "home." You know you probably do not remember graet-grandmother Anna, she was a religious god-fearing and praising woman, but she held her family as a treasure, until her death. But with her death, we lost the threads to our family and its unity. I know she would be proud to learn that we have reunited, again. Hope to hear from you, soon! George, your website brings blessings and returns the distant to closer shores. God Bless you on this Memorial Holiday! And I would like to ask all of the Cushnies and friends to pray for our sailors, soliders and Marines who are currently serving in the armed forces. This is a very trying time for all involved, both at home and overseas. PLease pray that our active duty members are safe during this upcoming holdiay, and that peace comes to all areas in turmoil in the world... Thank you, KymYvette (US Navy, Retired)

05/09/04 David James Cushnie (cushniedj@btinternet.com)
Comments: Dear KymYvette, thank you for your recent message. I regret that I do not know the precise title of the Morison Family history book. However, I have gone back to my old notebook and have found out a little more. Mary Ann (Cushnie) died in 1846 and her son, Alexander Cushnie Morison died 13th February, 1861, while on military service with the East India Company. The EIC was never engaged in the slave trade. Slavery was illegal in the United Kingdom and the movement of slaves in British ships was banned in 1807. Before that fortunes were made from it and cities like Liverpool for the cotton trade and Bristol for the tobacco trade were heavily engaged in it. As you know the Abolitionists fought for many years to end slavery and finally succeeded in 1833 and ownership of slaves in Jamaica was over by 1838. I notice Thomas Stratton Cushnie's wife, Angel, was described as colored rather than African, so I expect she was of mixed blood. By the late 1700s Jamaica was virtually a Scottish colony and many young Scotsman went there to seek their fortunes. There were few Scots girls in Jamaica at that time so it was not too long before the races became mixed. Compulsory registration of Births, Marriages and Deaths did not take place in Jamaica before 1878. As you may know marriage was not encouraged under slavery. For one thing the masters did not want to encourage any family or tribal structure developing. It could lead to opposition. So if some one in the cushnie.org can plot the known names of people born, married or died in Jamaica before 1878, and study documents such as the Feurtado Manuscripts, manumission lists, any indenture records, in fact anything on the name with a bit of luck some of the Jamaican Cushnies will find out more about their links with the north-east of Scotland as well as West Africa. You are already beginning to know quite a lot. I think people moved on to Cuba simply because when slavery was abolished the island's economy declined and there were jobs available there. Kindest regards to you, KymYvette, David.

05/01/04 Elizbeth Stephanie Myles nee Cushnie (lizzy@stone-panels.com)
Comments: I was a Cushnie until I married in 1973. I was born in the UK in 1951(Brighton)East Sussex My father was Edward Donald Cushnie born 3/10/23 (still living.... in Spain somewhere) His father was Herbert Cushnie who died approx 1970 Born in Scotland ... I think Aberdeen. he was about 80 when he died I have two sisters Patricia Ann born 1948 and Sally Charlotte born 1961

04/27/04 KymYvette Jackson (kymyvett@optonline.net)
Comments: Dear David Cushnie: I read your entry about the Morrisons for Dr Hervey. I am wondering was their son, a surgeon in the same East India Company that switched its cargo from tea to slaves? Also, it is possible that you or Dr Hervey can provide more information about the title of the book about the Morrisons? Also, David I understand that you have a wealth of information about the Cushnies from Jamaica and Scotland. I am intrigued!!! Please write more for all of us to learn or sendto me via separate email. Also, for the persons who are exploring their families, especially those in the United States, and Jamaica. I recently took two college courses on African American History on the Slave Movement and Early African Civilizations. These courses were great, because they aided in learning the passage of "unfree Blacks" or slaves through the Middle Passage. This is important, because this is where the African history intersects with our origin in Jamaica, Cuba, the Caribbean, and eventually, the US. This information has been helpful in learning about the heritage of the Cushnies in all, current, ethnic groups. Also, I have learned that history for Black Americans is taught differently for Blacks in Jamaica or other Caribbean regions. The discussion of slavery was not taught as it is in the US. This was confirmed by family members. So, it is never too late to learn something, new! As I learn more about the family and its origins, the more excited I become. It is amazing to learn about the extent that a Family, its name, and its Descendants have taken to survive through the centuries, and on different continents and islands! This is becoming better than television!


04/18/04 David James Cushnie (cushniedj@btinternet.com)
Comments: Dear Dr Hervey, I am fairly sure the information on Mary Ann Cushnie's marriage to Alexander Morison came from a book about the Morisons that I found in either the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh or Aberdeen City Library about thirty years ago. Its title was The Morisons of ----- or something like that and one or both libraries will surely still have it in stock. I believe Mary Ann died about 1839 and Alexander remarried. They had some children. At least one daughter and one son, Alexander Cushnie Morison, who became a surgeon in the East India Company. I believe he died young. It would be most interesting to know how Mary Ann met Alexander. Her mother died when she was eighteen months old and her father seven months before she married in Edinburgh. Sorry this information is a bit thin but the book may help if you can locate it. Kindest regards.

04/16/04 Dr Nick Hervey (nick@nhervey.freeserve.co.uk)
Comments: I am researching a biography of Sir Alexander Morison and would be interested in any information you have about the family. I wrote a short biography of him in a book called Masters of Bedlam, but have now gathered a significant amount of information for a full length biography, but would welcome any additional family information

Please locate me at my email address, urgently! Also, I want to let you know that your grandmother, my Aunt doris, was born in the United States. You were very little, so you may not remember me, but I believe we met during Uncle Goerge's funeral. I was the woman in the US Navy military uniform, your second cousin. I have been trying to find your mother, father, and siblings. I live in Piscataway, NJ, now, and I am awaiting your response! Your family has been trying to locate you children, but you are hard to locate! Please keep in touch this time! Love, your family! PS. George Cushnie (the website creator), You have created a gift for one, but it has brought joy to many, all sharing the same surname, each of us spread throughout the miles, and yet still yearning to learn from whence we came... You have begun the uniting of many into one... God Bless You and Yours! And to the rest of the Cushnie Clan, I want to wish all of you a joyous and spiritual holiday season!! PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN, WHO PROTECT AND SERVE OUR WAY OF LIFE ON FOREIGN SHORES... MAY THEY HAVE PEACE DURING OUR RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS!

My father is Jay's brother Robert who lives on Maui with my mother Wendy and my brother Ross. I currently reside in Ashland, OR. It is really neat to learn about other Cushnie's especially since the name is uncommon. Keep up the good work!

Anyway this is really nice. Oh I produce music so if anyone one hears music from a Reggae artist called Lenn Hammond, it was probably done by me. bye

Comments: I am so glad this website was created. I am a member of the Cushnies that left Scotland in the early 1900's and settled in Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations. My father Robert Cushnie was one of ten children born to William Cushnie and Isabel Forbes Cushnie. My Cushnie relatives live primarily in Califronia and Hawaii. Keep up the great work you are doing to chronicle Cushnie history.

Stacy-Ann is in her third year of medical studies at the University of the West Indies. We wish you well in your studies.

Comments: Hi Wilf: Its great to hear from you. It was wonderful to meet you, Mary, your parents and other family members in Ontario a couple of years ago and to be able to see some of the family history. I saw a photo of another Molly Cushnie - I wasn't the first, and she was quite a looker. Wilk's sister Mary has published several books on poetry. As soon as life quietens down a bit, I will continue work on the Jamaican family genealogy. Beverly continues to send me information on the Cushnie family from her research. I just returned from a wonderful exotic Caribbean cruise. I was particularly entranced with Martinique and Puerto Rico. This was my first cruise and it was well worth it. Of course, now I am as fat as a pig after all the great food on board! But visiting the various islands was neat. My regards to all the family. Molly

Comments: Holiday Greetings to my cushnie Clan far and wide! May the holidays bring joy to you and your family members! Another year is upon us, and we have learned that we as a family have roots that spread out far and wide and have many new growths! I am glad to see the repsonse growing on our family site! I hope everyone is talking to the elders and recording the sories os their lifes and their members who have departed before us. Please do not lose this ooportunity to recordtheir history for future generations. I can attest to the great difficulty in locating this information whe nthey have departed. Also, I am hoping that we will help each other by assisting each of the previous entries in locating their lineage within the family. As I read the previous entries I am amazed to see that the entries from people under age thirty are uncertain to how they fall into our family. We as "elders" and "family members" need to help them learn their "history." Let's leave them a legacy that they can be very proud of! I would like to thank George and Molly for their help in learning about my family. This site has been a welcome addition to my life! Kudos to both of you! I have learned alot! I am still in college, and this site is a great place to take a break an travel to different countries as I sit in front of my monitor, because each person's entry about where they live, sends me to their location in my imagination! Arm-chair traveling! I hope this New Year bring great joy and happiness to all my "family"! May God Bless and Keep you Safe!

Comments: Hi, everyone. I was born in '62 (my son would ask if that was 1862) and I am the last of 3 children (Dianne & Donovan) born to Leon Cushnie and Louise Palmer of Jamaica. I also suspect I may have been the last of the 13 children we know to be fathered by Leon but I wouldn't be surprised to find that I indeed have a little brother or sister out there. We never met many of Dad's family so while Donovan could at least name some of our uncles and aunts, I was too young to remember them from the few occasions we had together. My daughter loves to meet new family members so I know she'll appreciate this site and look forward to the next big reunion. Thanks for bringing us together.

I am a retired Presbyterian Minister. My father was David Donaldson Cushnie and he was born in Cannonsburg, PA, in 1905. He died in 1983. I know little about his father, Richard Cushnie and will be looking around for information. Reading the comments and reserarch of others is heartwarming.

10/09/03 KymYvette M. Jackson (kymyvett@optonline.net)
Comments: Dear Family! Greetings! I am excited to read the information about the first "colored" children in our research! Is there anymore, available? I am presently attending a African-american history college course and I have invited my classmates to review our website, so that they can experience the joys and tedious, but joyous work of tracking our family's roots. I felt this site was a good example of how the "age of exploration" and the pursue of new lands and profits has changed and re-developed countries. its people and families. We have all heard the stories through the years, but not until this site was established has it afforded all of us, as the descendants of the Strattons, Cushnies and others, the ability to identify with our far-flung family members! We must keep this research going! The effort to locate our roots, should not be the actions of a few, but the goal of all of us as descendants of the original Cushnies! Unfortunately, as time passes we are experiencing the loss of our "storytellers and historians," soon even I will be too old to recall certain events! Our history is significant, because it tells the origin of who we were and what we will become... But, if we do not record and listen to our elders, we will lose so much! I must ask that each one of us as Cushnies, truly attempt to record the "stories," either in writing, voice recording or film. These narratives are the keys to our past and the passageway to maintaining our history in the future. We are spread all over the world, but we share one commonality, being a Cushnie descendants. Please assist in beginning research in your area, look to see if there are records of us. Look into geneaology books to learn how to research.The task of identifying our ancestors is a great one, because we are all over the world, we lessen the miles, by locating and preserving our family tree. This task is great, but if everyone sought information on members of their family in several genrations back, we would accomplish a phenomemal task, but we would have done it, together... Now wouldn't it be GRAND to have the compiled information at the next scheduled reunion? (another topic for later date.). Imagine seeing family trees, photos, histories, manuscripts, manifests, charters, voyage documents, birth cetificates, slave recordings. It would be the best legacy we could leave our children and their children. Haven't you ever wondered from what region in Africa, Scotland, Europe that we all originated from? I do! I have learned that some Cushnies lived or are living in Cuba, but are they still there? What caused the migration there? Who went there? DO we still exist there? What about other Caribeean islands or in South America? If everyone helped we could provide a grand legacy. No age is excluded! Is anyone interested in assisting? Our family creed reads: "One Family, One Love." What better way to show it? Think about it and respond back, we could use some help! Sincerely with best intentions, KymYvette

09/18/03 David James Cushnie (cushniedj@btinternet.com)
Comments: Dear Molly and Ian Miller' I shall try to continue where I left off. The Feuertado Manuscripts in 1854 show Alexander Cushnie as "Landing Master and Searcher Kingston". This connects very well with something Harold Anthony Cushnie said some years ago - he had a collection of family letters and documents relating to the Customs and Excise in Jamaica. He is a direct descendant of Thomas Stratton Cushnie. The first Cushnie family known to me to return to the UK was about 1861 in Liverpool. They were Alexander Cushnie and his wife Mary, maiden name Bell with their baby son William Cadmus Euterpe Cushnie, who was born in Kingston in 1859 or 1860. His middle names come from two ships which were moored in Kingston Harbour at the time of his birth. Alexander's first wife died in 1874 and when he remarried in 1876 he gave his father's name as Thomas Stratton Cushnie, Gentleman. Alexander died in Liverpool in 1894 when he was said to aged 63. He had another son, named George Stratton Cushnie born in Liverpool in 1863 but he died at sea in 1883. Another brother, anther Thomas Stratton Cushnie married in Kent in 1877 to Mary Lewis. He said his father was Thomas Stratton Cushnie, Planter. It was this entry which caused to write to Miss Berry all those years ago as I had no idea that there were Cushnies in Jamaica. It was simply that I was finding people who I knew were not born in england or Scotland. Now it is coming together. I shall continue searching my notes. Kindest regards, David

Comments: Thank you so very much, David. I am so excited to receive this information. Here is some further information sent to me by Ms. Beverly Gordon Somers, a retired policewoman,who is a descendant of James Joseph Cushnie and Christiana Neita Cushnie. James and Christiana were married in 1884 at, I believe, St. Faith's Anglican Church, nr. Above Rocks, Jamaica. Here are the entries which Beverly culled from the Mormon Family History Center microfilm research. "Thomas Stratton b Apr 26, 1826 to Thomas Stratton Cushnie & Angel bap Mar 11, 1828 Kingston; Alexander b June 7, 1829, colored to Thomas Stratton Cushnie & Angel lived at Rum Lane, bap Dec. 26, 1829; Adelaide b Oct 15, 1831 colored, to Thomas Stratton Cushnie & Angel married, lived @ Rum Lane, bap Dec 20, 1831." Beverly, while researching her own family came upon the Cushnie-Neita link and emailed me. She has been doing research for the last three years. I am forever grateful to Beverly for sending me many pieces of information on the Jamaican Cushnie family. If anyone has information on any of the persons mentioned, would you please email me at mcushnie8@yahoo.com. I am still trying to connect the dots. David's information has been very helpful.Thank you David and Beverly.

09/16/03 David James Cushnie (cushniedj@btinternet.com)
Comments: Dear Molly and Ian Miller thank you for you replies. In Dunnottar Chaurchyard, near Stonehaven, there is a stone which reads. "In memory of Alexander Straton, late merchant in Stonehive: he died the 7th day of May, 1743, aged 67 years. And of Christian Robertson, his spouse, a virtuous wife, an affectionate mother, and benevolent friend: she died the 20th day of Oct, 1763, aged 83 years. Also of Thomas Straton, Esq, their son who died in Jamaica, May, 1777, aged 73 years, with most unblemished character, esteemed by all his connections. He acquired a genteel fortune, which he left to his surviving sisters. Here lies interred Patrick Cushnie, who died 23rd May, 1790, aged 38 years. Also Elizabeth Straton, his spouse, who died the 24th of Nov, 1792, in the 36th year of her age, and their son, the Rev. Patrick Cushnie, M.A., incumbent of St Mary's Montrose, who died 10th June, 1869, in the 90th year of his age and the 69th of his ministry." The Rev Patrick Cushnie, an Episcopal Minister, used to tell how his grandfather, also named Patric Cushnie (baptised at Dunnottar 14th december 1721) had been an enthusiastic supporter of the Jacobite cause and had kissed Bonnie Prince Charlie's hands when he came to Aberdeen. Thomas Straton (or Stratton) who died in Jamaica in 1777, leaving his "genteel fortune to his surviving sisters" seems to have been a fairly important man in the island. he was a member of the Jamaica Assembly from1755-56. His niece, Elizabeth Straton, had married Patrick Cushnie (son of the Jcaobite supporter) in Aberdeen, on 19th June, 1775. It seems that Patrick's cousin, thomas cushnie, went to Jamaica, to help manage Thomas Straton's plantations, as a ver young man. from the latter's bequest to his sisters it appears that he had no surviving children. The Feurtado Manuscripts show that the Cushnieswho lived in Jamaica took commissions in the Jamaica Militia, which was the usual practice in those days, when they were greatly outnumbered by the slaves they owned. the law wass totally on the side of the planters. The Militia records are most useful because they identify the parishes in Jamaica where members of the family were living at various times. The earliest record shows that Thomas Cushnie was a Captain in St David's Militia in 1784, followed by Thomas Stratton Cushnie, ensign St Thomas in the East and St David's Militia in 1799 and his descendant, also named thomas Straton Cushnie, was a Lieutenant of the Kingston Militia in 1841 and Clerk to the common Council of Kingston in 1845. Also in the Old Section of dunnottar Churyard is another family tombstone. the inscription reads as follows: "In memory of Margaret Herdman sspouse to Alexander Cushnie merchant Aberdeen, d. 6 Oct, 111784, aged 35: Patrick & Margaret two of their children d. in infancy. Alexander Cushnie their fasther d. 24 Aug 1798, aged 50." Alexander Cushnie, Margaret Herdman's husband, had aan estate in Jamaica, although I don't know how frequently he visited it or or his relations there. when I found the record of his daughter's marriage I discovered more about the family. Alexander's elder daughter, Mary Ann Cushnie, was seventeen when she married a young doctor, Alexander Morison, in Edinburgh, on 26th March, 1799. Her late father was described as "Alexander Cushnie of Aberdeen and of Windsor Castle Farm, Jamaica. (Does anyone know where that is? Incidentally I am not related to any of these people myself. I just happened to get interested and fascinated by the the story about twenty-five years age when I was searching for someone.) Mary Ann, who was baptised at St Nicholas, Aberdeen, on 27th february, 1782, was a wealthy girl, which would certainly have helped her husband's career. She became Lady Morison when he received a knighthood, in 1838, for his long and distinguished service as a physician to members of the royal family, including the Duke of York and Prince (later King) Leopold of the Belgians and to the Princess Charlotte of Wales. If I haven't bored you to tears I will continue this later. Before I end I would like to acknowledge the help given to me by Mr John A Aarons (Deputy Director) and Miss Margaret Dwyer (Research Officer) of the West India Reference Library of the Institute of Jamaica, in Kinston back in 1977.I also wish to thank Miss E M E Berry of Aberdeenshire for her help in explaining the relationships between the Stratton and Cushnie families in the stonehaven area and for transcribing some of the gravestones in Dunnottar kirkyard for me. Kindest regards, David

04/27/03 KymYvette M. Jackson (kymyvett@optonline.net)
Comments: Hello All Cushnies!! I am the Grand-daughter of Enos James Cushnie and Annie Mattis Cushnie, my mother is Myrtle Maud Cushnie Jackson from Piscataway, NJ, USA. My grandfather is the brother of Constance, Vasil, Lionel, Leopole, Dorritt, Eveline, Din, George Cushnie from Above Rocks and/or Kingston, Jamaica. My mother's siblings are George Enos Cushnie (deceased/Mortician/East Orange,NJ)and Doris Cushnie Collins (St. Petersburg, FL). I wish to extend my family's condolences to Stacy and the other Cushnies who are grieving the lost of Eulalee. I wish to thank all of the family members who welcomed this "lost Cushnie family member" back into the fold. I learned that Eulalee was a "great organizer," who tried to keep family in touch and supported. As a retired member of the United States Navy after twenty years of service, I had traveled the world to maintain peace and good health, but I always longed for the sense of family. Well, I was reunited with family members I had not seen since my childhood, and learned of new ones! I am so happy because I could finally talk to my 83 year old mother about her family, because I had names! Now I am trying to learn more! I am trying to compile a history about the above family members. I have learned that their parents name was Christina and James Cushnie. Family was able to provide short brief info of family tree from my Pop-pop's siblings, but I am looking for more! I am trying to locate information about the migration of Enos James Cushnie for Jamaica to Montreal, Canada. Apparently he brought my Nana'a sewing machine to her, she worked for a family in Canada. They lived in East Orange on 172 William St. He worked as a superintendent. They lived on Princeton Street and 71 Hollywood Avenue in East Orange. I would appreciate any information and photos, (especially childhood). I am obtaining information from my Mother and Aunt, so that our history can be preserved for my 16 year old daughter, Stephanie and future generations of Cushnie. I am working on a family tree for my grandfather's descendants. I obtained information from family in April 2003. Please email me with any input. Please Make email subject line: CUSHNIE FAMILY TREE. Thank you!

Comments: A Calendar of Events has been added to the Communications page of www.cushnie.org (see http://www.cushnie.org/coemain.cfm). Anyone can add or edit an event. Use this calendar to enter birthdays, anniversaries, gatherings, or whatever you want. The event will disappear from the calendar automatically when the "thru" date arrives. To add an event, click on [Add an Event]. Then fill out the form. Be certain to enter the start and end dates in the requested format (MM-DD-YY). In the bottom box of the form, you can add as much information as you want. Enter the text in html, if you know how. Let me know if you need any assistance. Each "event" is automatically assigned a number (shows up in calendar under the event name). If you want to edit an event, click on [Edit an Event] and enter the number of the event you want to edit. I hope this becomes an active feature of our web site. More later.

I did know that there were relatives in Jamaica, but not so many! There are lots of us here in Canada. We would love to add more information to the Canadian portion of the website if you would like.

Comments: To: George, Jr. and Les, We can't thank you enough for this wonderful and beautiful site. We read it everyday. You have given a gift to all Cushnies, not just your parents. We love you---now the whole family knows how much we do!

07/02/02 George and Leslie (Virginia) (George@caiweb.com)
Comments: Thank you all for the wonderful messages. It is great hearing from family members and friends that too k part in the Jamaica Pilgrimage. It is also exciting to see new names! We will add those to the directory. Leslie and I are in the process of moving to a new home. As such, it will be a few weeks before we can make changes. In the meantime, please continue to post your messages here in the guest book. Based on how people use Cushnie.org, we may try some other methods of communicating. Any ideas you provide are very welcome. We want this site to reflect a collective family effort. One idea is to have a feature similar to this guest book, but use it for special intentions. For example, you may ask us all to pray for an ill family member or someone who is out of work. Another thought is to include both living and deceased family members in the directory (http://www.cushnie.org/directory.html). Then, we would add a family search capability to locate living, deceased, or both. The calendar of events (not yet finished) will allow family and friends to post upcoming events and special days such as get-togethers, anniversaries and birthdays. We hope to work on some of these items before the end of July (after our move). In the meantime, please pray for our sanity!
