Zeruiah SAMPSON

Zeruiah is my first cousin eight times removed; we are related through her grandparents, Captain Joseph and Joanna (THOMAS) VAUGHAN, my eighth great grandparents.  It is believed that the CUSHMAN family was a crypto-Jewish family living in colonial America.  Their son Caleb “departs for Hebron, Israel in 1780, making an Aliyah on the behalf of his family, perhaps the first in several hundred years.”[1]  The Cushman is an Ashkenazic surname).

Zeruiah SAMPSON was born 18 March 1726 in Plympton, Plymouth, MA.[2]  Or other records state she was born 29 March 1726.[3]  She was the daughter of William and Joanna (VAUGHAN) SAMPSON.  She died 29 February 1820 in Plympton, Plymouth, MA.[4]  Zeruiah married Benjamin CUSHMAN 27 August 1747.[5]  Benjamin was born 25 March 1722 in Plympton, Plymouth, MA.[6]  He was the son of Benjamin and Sarah (EATON) CUSHMAN.  He died 5 March 1813 in Plympton, Plymouth, MA.[7]
