    Notes 
    • From The Genealogy of the Cushing Family:
      Caleb was one of the numerous signers of documents in 1745, unfavorable to the itinerary of Whitfield, and endorsing the proceedings of Harvard College in 1744 in relation to his career. He was pastor of the Salisbury Church during a period of 56 years. ‘We know not the man in the County of Essex,’ says the eminent preacher of his funeral sermon, ‘who has moulded a broader and deeper influence on the minds of the people than this venerable devine.’
      The Boston Evening Post stated: ‘He was of excellent natural parts, judgment and memory which so rarely meet, yet met in him in so eminent degree that it was not easy to say in which he excelled, and at the same time, he had the easiest and happiest temper, and most benign soul. He was a learned, solid divine, and of exemplary conversation, condescending, prudent, benevolent and a wise counsellor, remarkable for hospitality.’
