William Cash, from Strathmiglo, was a mariner who ferried Scottish immigrants to the New World. After a few trips, he decided to stay in the USA himself, and settled in Salem, Massachusetts. On one trip, he brought his nephew with him, also from Strathmiglo, and that nephew decided to stay as well. This was in the 1650s. The elder William Cash stayed in Salem, and became a prominent citizen, serving on a jury for a murder trial. The records for this trial, and William’s last will and testament, still remain in the Salem town hall. The younger William Cash moved south, to Westmoreland County, Virginia and his descendants spread through Virginia, Georgia and Arkansas. The grandfather of Johnny cash, William Cash, settled in Arkansas. His youngest son, Ray Cash was born in 1897. The father of Johnny Cash was born in Kingsland, Arkansas. The surname Cash is derived from the Old French word casse, which means case. Thus, Cash is a metonymic type of occupational surname; it is derived from the principal object associated with the occupation, which in this case was the product produced. Over the years, many variations of the name Cash were recorded, including Cash, Cass, Cashe and others. Catherine Cash, aged 24, a farm servant, arrived in South Australia in 1855 aboard the ship Nashwauk; Arthur Cash arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship Claramont in 1863; Martin Cash, aged 32, a farm labourer, arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship Halcione in 1875; Michael Cash, aged 26, a tilemaker, arrived in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, in 1834 aboard the brig Matilda; William Cash settled in Salem, Massachusetts, America, in 1667, married and had William and John and five daughters; Richard Cash landed in Maryland, America, in 1676.
