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.
