Families of the Children of Elizabeth3 Washburn and Joseph Amory

 

 

         The children of Elizabeth Washburn and Joseph Amory have been only partially traced. I have not found a marriage for daughters Rebecca or Esther Amory, I have not found the children of son John Amory yet, and I have found only one child for daughter Elizabeth Amory, so this family is far from complete. I will add to this file as new information is uncovered, but since Elizabeth was a daughter her descendants will not be carried forward further than this file.
