William Cash, born in Scotland c. 1653, emigrates to America c. 1670.
He dies in Virginia 1670.
His family stays in Virginia for 2 or 3 generations, and fight in the American War of Independence.
They eventually move to Georgia, where Moses Cash has a plantation, which is in time destroyed by Union troops during the American Civil war.
Moses moves to Arkansas.
One of his grandchildren was William Henry Cash who died in 1912.
His son was Ray Cash.
Ray marries Carrie Rivers. Their 3rd son was JR Cash.
1954 Arrives home from the US Air Force in Landsberg, Germany and marries Vivien Liberto, Aug 7th. They had met 3 weeks prior to his shipping overseas, corresponded almost daily and got engaged while he was away. Vivien was to be the mother of his daughters, Rosanne, Kathy, Tara and Cindy.
Introduced in mid July to Marshall Grant and Luther Perkins by his older brother, Roy. Auditioned for Sam Phillips at Sun. Rosanne born May 24th.
March 1955: Records Hey Porter, and later, Cry, Cry, Cry with Sam Phillips of Sun Studios in Memphis in May. In mid June, Marshall hears Hey Porter on the radio. Also in June, they record Folsom Prison Blues. The song was loosely based on another, Crescent City Blues, which brought some legal trouble when it became a huge hit in 1968. Johnny Cash had been christened JR, but the US Air Force recruiting office would not accept initials on their application form, so they told him to put down John. Perhaps the J and R came from his mother Carrie’s parents, John and Ruth.
When, with bass player Marshall Grant and guitarist Luther Perkins he went to Sun, as the Tennessee Three, Phillips called them John Cash and the Tennessee Two, as he fronted the band, and soon changed that to Johnny, as he felt it appealed more to a younger audience.
December, 1955: "Folsom Prison Blues" (b/w "So Doggone Lonesome" by Johnny Cash & the Tennessee Two is released, coinciding with their "Louisiana Hayride" debut. It reaches #4 in the C&W charts, Johnny gets a second royalty check, this time for $6,000, his first one having being worth just over 2 dollars.
January '56 Joins Louisiana Hayride, and later in July, makes first appearance at the Wyman Auditorium, better known as the Grand Ol' Opry. Meets June Carter and tells her he'd marry her someday.
April 1956: "I Walk the Line" b/w "Get Rhythm" by Johnny Cash & the Tennessee Two is released, reportedly a 2 million seller, hits #1 in the C&W charts and also gets into the top 20 pop charts. Kathy Cash born in April. The song had the working title, Because You’re Mine, but Carl Perkins on hearing it suggested it be called I Walk The Line. At a gig in Georgia, met Gordon Terry of the Faron Young band, who gave him some pills to overcome tiredness.
1957 Johnny Cash with His Hot and Blue Guitar Jan 19th, appears on Jackie Gleason Show. This year he makes his first appearance at the Town Hall Party where he meets with Don Law, A&R man for CBS. The two meet again soon after THP, at the home of the Collins Kids . Signs with Columbia.
early/mid-1958: Still contracted to Sun, two more #1 C&W/top 20 pop Sun hit singles (with new producer Jack Clement) succeed in catching youth market: "Ballad of a Teenage Queen" (#1 C&W for 10 weeks) b/w "Big River"; "Guess Things Happen That Way" b/w "Come In Stranger." “Cowboy” Jack Clement had written both A sides. He also wrote the 2 ditties on the 1968 At Folsom album, Flushed From the Bathroom of Your Heart, and Egg Sucking Dog. Cindy Cash born July. Moved to California.
What Do I Care / All Over Again first hit record for new label, Columbia.
Sings the Songs That Made Him Famous although now with Columbia, this album was released by Sun, who, even though the label changed hands in the late 60s, continued to release JC compilation albums.
January, 1959: "Don't Take Your Guns To Town" hits #1 C&W/top 40 pop, ignites string of western gunslinger tunes and quasi-historical sagas on Columbia by Johnny Horton ("Battle of New Orleans"), Marty Robbins ("El Paso"), Stonewall Jackson ("Waterloo"), and others.

Hymns by Johnny Cash
October, 1959: "The Rebel" TV series premiere starring Nick Adams, features "The Ballad of Johnny Yuma" theme sung by Johnny Cash (not issued as single until June, 1961); again ignites a new genre (Civil War songs), as Horton hits Top 10 C&W that month with "Johnny Reb" which was also recorded by his friend and fishing buddy, Johnny Cash.
Nov 19th 1959 First (music) trip overseas. Brings Vivien to see Landsberg Air Force Base where he served with the US Air Force while in Germany.
1959-1960: W.S. Holland joins the group, initially for a short tour on the East Coast, where Johnny wanted a fuller sound in the bigger venues. He was to stay right up to the end. WS, or Fluke as he was known, had been Carl Perkins drummer, and had played on Carl’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes. First show in San Quentin is around this time, some accounts saying 1958, others 1959. Since he started in the business, Cash had been performing inside various prisons. The first San Quentin show finds 22-year old inmate Merle Haggard sitting in first row, convicted of aggravated robbery, after a tough and problematic upbringing.
1960 Films 5 Minutes To Live. Friend, fishing buddy and confidant Johnny Horton dies in a traffic accident. His widow had been married at one time to Hank Williams. A strange coincidence is that both men played their last concert at the Skyline Club, Austin, Texas. The Tennessee 3 record an instrumental, Jerry & Nina’s Melody, in honour of his children. It is released in 1961.

March 25, 1963: A song based on a poem called Love’s Ring of Fire by Bob Johnston, "Ring Of Fire" (written by June Carter and Merle Kilgore) recorded in Nashville with mariachi-style trumpets, the idea for which had come to Johnny in a dream, and Carter Family on backing vocals; hits #1 C&W (for 7 weeks), It was Cash's first #1 in four years. June’s sister Anita recorded this in 1962. First wife Vivien Liberto questioned June’s part in writing this, saying that Johnny had admitted to her that he had written it, but had given June the credit to earn the much-needed royalties.. Quick sound-alike follow-up, "The Matador" hits #2 (for 2 weeks).

1968: January 13, Widely acclaimed concert inside California’s Folsom Prison, in front of 2000 convicts, is recorded by Columbia. Marries June Carter in Kentucky March 1st, after proposing to her onstage in London, Ontario. Best man was Merle Kilgore, co-writer of Ring of Fire.
In August, Luther Perkins dies in house fire, seemingly having fallen asleep on his sofa, while smoking. Earlier that afternoon, he had phoned Johnny asking him to come over and help with a TV aerial. The latter had refused, and there is a question over whether he felt guilt over the death of his friend. Luther had just recently bought the house on Old Hickory Lake.

Bob Wooten, who joined Johnny and WS on stage at a show in Fayetteville when Carl's plane was fogbound, ( when Bob's girlfriend told June that he could play just like Luther) has by now established himself as Luther’s replacement, although Carl Perkins is retained for his outstanding guitar skills, and also his friendship with Johnny. The question is often asked, but Carl and Luther were not related.

The Sun albums were released by Shelby Singleton who had bought SUN Records, obviously in an attempt to cash in on Johnny’s incredible success at the time. He had produced the song "Rose Garden" and knew that the song was to be featured on the forthcoming Johnny Cash TV Show, which would guarantee huge sales of all Cash recordings. In just a few months after the TV show aired, he had recouped his investment in SUN Records.The album Showtime was even post-dubbed with audience applause, presumably in an attempt to give the impression that it was connected to the very popular TV show.
July, 1969: "A Boy Named Sue" (written by Shel Silverstein) enters C&W chart, hits #1 (for 5 weeks), certified RIAA gold, chosen CMA Single Of the Year, from the San Quentin album, recorded in front of an audience of 1500 inmates. The album, which also included Bob Dylan's "Wanted Man," enters C&W and pop charts, hits #1 C&W (for 20 weeks) and spends 55 weeks in the charts; and #1 pop (for 4 weeks) and spends 70 weeks there; certified RIAA double-platinum, chosen CMA Album Of the Year and Cash named CMA Entertainer Of the Year. The amazing thing about A Boy Named Sue being such a success is that Shel had given it to Johnny the day before, in the form of a poem. The band had never heard it, and just adlibbed as Johnny went through it, making up the melody as he went along.
The Johnny Cash Show had made it's debut on TV in June, running to September, then January ‘70 to May, and Sept 70 to March 1971.
There was also a show at the White House (Richard Nixon).
