Warren Cushman was a respected painter, sculptor, photographer, musician, and inventor. He created the towering Cushman monument in Woodstock's Rush Township cemetery and is believed to have shown his painting "Spanish Dancing Girls" at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Warren was born to Franklin and Susan (Gifford) Cushman on January 17, 1845 in Woodstock and had three siblings, Julius, Charles and Lucy.

During the Civil War, young Cushman served as a bugler for the 134th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. In 1867 he married Jocele Calender and the couple had four children. Scott, Mabel, Byron, and Charlotte. A mostly self-taught artist, Cushman traveled to Washington D.C. in 1875 to study the collections at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. In addition to the Cushman monument, some of Cushman's work survives in public and private
collections. He died on April 20, 1926.
