A few years ago when I was just starting to do some genealogy research, Eleanor told me about a relative of ours, Judith Chapman, who starred on The Young and the Restless and Magnum P.I., but Eleanor wasn’t sure how we were related. In fact Judith Chapman has been on a lot of soaps and guested on dozens of primetime TV shows since the 1970s. Fortunately the Cashin tree isn’t that complicated, mostly only going back to John Cashin, who emigrated from Ireland. In fact, all eight of Eleanor and Dad’s great grandparents emigrated from Ireland and settled in Augusta. We also know the names of a couple of their parents, but not much else that I’m aware of. So John Cashin is our great, great grandfather and anyone else who shares him as a great, great grandfather is our third cousin. Unless they also share John’s son, John J. Cashin, in which case they are second cousins, unless they share Papa, in which case they are first cousins. We know all of our first cousins. And we know a few second cousins, including the Bill Cashins and Stuart Cashins. We even know some third cousins, the Harry Cashins. I’m sure the Augusta Cashins know even more, but that’s as far as I actually sort of know anyone. Actually there may be fourth cousins because John Cashin seems to have had two brothers in Augusta, named Lawrence and Patrick, but that’s too much to keep up with right now.
