[Woman formerly identified as a sister of Charles H. Cushing.]
Broadbent, S. (Samuel), 1810-1880, photographer
Half length portrait of a woman, approximately age 40 or 50, wearing jewelry (earrings and brooch) and a shawl. Twentieth
century note accompanying item appears to be incorrect in identifiying sitter as Eliza (later Elice), sister of Charles Cushing.
Genealogical records indicate he had no sister by this name. His mother was Eliza Constantia (Watson) Cushing (1791-1872),
who would have been about 60 when this portrait was taken, so it may not be she. Charles Cushing also had a daughter Eliza,
and it is she who died as "Elise", in 1958.
Given to Margaret Schlictmann by Ynez Tillinghast Estudillo.

married Dolores or 'Lola' Estudillo of San Leandro in 1864. Because Eliza dis- liked her name, she chose to be known as Elice.
This name was given to one of the Cushing's daughters, who never married. This likeness was acquired from Miss Ynez Tillinghast
