Name spellings

Depending on the source of information, I have seen the family name spelled Quishian, Cushen and Cussen in Ireland, and Cushion, Cushing, and Chushing in the US. There are other variations as well. At my father's suggestion, I've adopted the convention of using the name Cussen for those born in Ireland prior to the family's emigration to the US, and the name Cushing for those born in the US. For example, Dennis Cussen (born in Ireland) married Catherine Casey and their son, Francis Cushing (born in Wisconsin), was my great grandfather.
