I am Robert G Cashion from San Francisco, son of Robert L Cashion (parents Robert F Cashion born 1895 from New York and Mildred McEvers born 1906 from Mobile, AL [later Mildred Fernandez - step-grandpa from Cuba]) and Annelore K Cashion (parents Gustav Reydt born 1914 and Margot Rodenbeck born 1919 from Germany).
My great grandpa was Robert Patrick Cashion, born 1865 Hanock, NH.
His father was James Cashion born 1825, Hancock, NH.
An Irish immigrant named Cashion arrived 13 years earlier in 1812 by boat in Hancock, NH from Ireland.
The story from my great grandfather has it that this guy deserted the occupying English army and fled to France, and so changed the name to sound French, Cashion. Later returned to Ireland and left on the boat for Hancock, NH, along with 2 brothers who moved on to Oklahoma. One of these brothers (actually probably a son of his) was killed in the Spanish-American war in Cuba. On the web, there is a town named Cashion, OK with a history. The guy in photo doesn't look 75 years old, so I am guessing it was his son. Here is the link, http://www.cashiononline.com/History_Of_Cashion.htm
