Families of the Children of Margery3 Washburn and Josiah3 Leonard

 

 

         Margery Washburn probably had 6 children before she died, and her husband had 2 more children by his second wife. Although we do not have the actual date when Margery died, nor do we have the birth dates of their children, we have the date of Josiah Leonard’s second marriage, and we can calculate the approximate birth years of the children from the dates of their marriages or ages at death. The grandchildren of Margery Washburn are not well traced at this point, especially those of daughter Margery Leonard. The children of daughter Elizabeth Leonard are listed under those of her husband, and the children of son Josiah Leonard (Jr.) are listed under those of his wife, since they both married back into the Washburn family. Because Margery is a daughter her descendants will not be carried forward further than this file, other than those who married back into the Washburn family.

        [139] Per the FHS Ancestral File, submitted by Nancy R. Harrington, of La Verne, CA. There is an I.G.I. Individual Record for Ephraim Breed that shows him being born on 14 Sept. 1731 in Charlestown, MA, the son of Ephraim and Hannah (Huet) Breed, and marrying Margaret Harrington in 1794, but that would put him at about 63 years of age at his marriage, which is certainly possible but does not seem likely. Another I.G.I. Individual Record for this same Ephraim Breed shows him marrying Hannah Newell on 12 May 1757 in Charlestown, which is much more likely, although this same record shows Hannah dying on 2 Jan. 1761 in Charlestown, and another I.G.I. Individual Record shows this same Ephraim Breed marrying secondly to Ann Larkin on 3 Dec. 1761 in Charlestown, and her dying in 1793 in Charlestown, so it may be that Margaret Harrington was his third wife.
