Families of the Children of Samuel4 Washburn (Jr.) and Abigail3 Leonard

 

 

         The children of Samuel Washburn and Abigail Leonard settled either in Stafford, Connecticut Colony, or in Bridgewater, Massachusetts Colony, but some of the grandchildren spread into western Massachusetts and northern Vermont. The names of several of the wives are still unknown at this point, and some of the grandchildren are untraced. Thank you to Susan L. Bingler, CG, for much of the information on this branch of the family.

(405.) David5 Washburn, eldest son of (122) Samuel4 Washburn (Jr.), (58) Samuel3, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts Colony, on 30 Apr. 1704,[1] moved to Stafford, Tolland Co., Connecticut Colony, with his parents about 1735,[2] and married 1.) Elizabeth (___) in ca. 1748.[3] She died on 14 May 1759 in Stafford,[4] and he remarried to 2.) Dorothy (___) in ca. 1764.[5] They lived in Stafford, CT.

         In March 1732/3 Nicholas Sever, Esq., of Kingston, sued David Washburn of Bridgwater, blacksmith, over a £5.10s debt,[6] and he first purchased 55 acres of land in Stafford, CT, on 1 Jan. 1736 from James Wheeler.[7] He died in Stafford, CT, on 19 Oct. 1777,[8] and his widow, Dorothy, remarried to William Fenton, of Windsor, on 14 Dec. 1779.[9]

         David Washburn had 5 children by Elizabeth, and 2 more children by Dorothy:

+      1141     i   Elizabeth6 Washburn, born on 22 Apr. 1749 in Stafford, CT,[10] possibly the Elizabeth Washburn who married Daniel Shattuck, of Templeton, Worcester Co., MA, son of Ephraim and Elizabeth (Jackson) Shattuck,[11] in 1778,[12] and supposedly lived in Phillipston, Worcester Co., MA. (To be continued in Washburn Sixth Generation.)

        1142    ii   David Washburn (Jr.), born on 5 July 1751 in Stafford,[13] died on 11 Dec. 1752 in Stafford.[14]

        1143   iii   Seneth Washburn, a daughter, born on 11 Apr. 1753,[15] died on 11 Nov. 1753 in Stafford.[16]

+      1144   iv   Relief6 “Lefe” Washburn, born on 24 Apr. 1754 in Stafford,[17] married Solomon Cross, supposedly son of Noah and Mary (Chamberlain) Cross,[18] on 10 June 1778 in Stafford,[19] and they moved to Fairfield, Washington Co., NY, then to Hamilton, Madison Co., NY, and finally to Gouverneur, St. Lawrence Co., NY.[20] (To be continued in Washburn Sixth Generation.)

        1145    v   Lydia Washburn, born on 8 Jan. 1755 in Stafford,[21] marriage not found. Timothy Allis was appointed as her guardian before 1756, because on 8 Sept. 1756 the town of Stafford voted to pay him £5 for taking in Lydia Washburn and raising her to age 18 years,[22] and Allis brought her into the church to be baptized on 20 May 1764.[23] She did not marry Nathaniel Cowles,[24] as has been claimed.

        1147  vii   Abigail Washburn, born on 29 Jan. 1770 in Stafford,[26] marriage not found. She was probably the unnamed child of David Washburn who was placed under the care of Deacon Samuel Fuller in 1778.[27]

 

 

(406.) Deliverance5 Washburn, eldest daughter of (122) Samuel4 Washburn (Jr.), (58) Samuel3, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts Colony, on 7 Oct. 1706,[28] married Joseph Bolton, son of John and Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, of Bridgewater,[29] on 6 Feb. 1739/40 in Bridgewater.[30] He was born on 27 July 1704 in Bridgewater,[31] and died on 12 Mar. 1751 in Bridgewater,[32] but no probate records were filed for his estate. She died a widow on 28 May 1755 in Bridgewater,[33] but the usual guardianships were not found recorded for their children Joseph and Philip Bolton in 1755.

         Deliverance Washburn and Joseph Bolton had children, order uncertain:[34]

        1148     i   (Unnamed child), died on 16 Jan. 1741 in Bridgewater.[35]

        1149    ii   Joseph Bolton (Jr.), born ca. 1742,[36] probably in Bridgewater, married Mary Bolton, probably his cousin, daughter of John “Jr.” and Eliza­beth (Hayward) Bolton,[37] on 27 Apr. 1773 in Bridgewater.[38] She was born on 6 May 1752 in Bridgewater.[39] They were living in Bridgewater, MA, in the 1790,[40] and 1800 federal censuses,[41] in East Parish, Bridgewater, MA, in the 1810 federal census, next door to his brother Philip Bolton,[42] and in West Parish, Bridgewater, in the 1820 federal census.[43] Silvanus Pratt petitioned the probate court on 6 Apr. 1819 that his friend and neighbor Joseph Bolton, of Bridgewater, labourer, by reason of age & infirmity has become non compos mentis and incapable of taking care of himself, and asked that an inquisition be made and a guardian be appointed for Joseph Bolton. Silvanus Pratt, Zephaniah Fobes, and Abiezer Alger, Selectment of Bridgewater, were appointed as the commission, and found that indeed Joseph Bolton was incapable of taking care of himself and his estate. John E. Howard, of Bridgewater, Merchant, was appointed as guardian of Joseph Bolton, of Bridgewater, labourer, on 17 May 1819.[44] No death or probate records were found for either Joseph or Mary Bolton in Plymouth County, MA. They had children:

a. Philip Bolton, born on 17 July 1774 in Bridgewater,[45] died on 25 Nov. 1843 in Bridgewater, aged 70 [sic] years, a pauper, of “disease of heart.”[46]

b. Joseph Bolton (3rd), born on 10 Mar. 1776 in Bridgewater,[47] marriage not found.

c. John Bolton, born on 23 Apr. 1778 in Bridgewater,[48] married Betsey Dennie or Dana, daughter of John and Elizabeth Dennie or Dana, of Boston, on 4 Dec. 1796 in Boston,[49] and they lived in West Bridgewater. He died intestate on 8 Aug. 1831 in West Bridgewater, aged 55 [sic] years,[50] and Jonas Hartwell, of West Bridgewater, was granted administration of his estate on 4 Oct. 1831.[51] She died a widow on 19 Feb. 1846 in West Bridgewater, aged 74 years, 8 months, of “pleurisy.”[52]

d. Deliverance Bolton, born on 27 Feb. 1781 in Bridgewater,[53] never married, died on 8 Oct. 1864 in Bridgewater, aged 84 years, of “dropsy,”[54] but no probate records were filed for her estate.

        1150   iii   (Unnamed child), died in 1745 in Bridgewater.[62]

        1151   iv   Philip Bolton, born ca. 1748,[63] probably in Bridgewater. In 1764, as a minor over the age of 14 year years, he chose Benjamin Willis, of Bridgewater, to be his guardian,[64] and he married Bethiah Hayward, daughter of Ezra and Lydia (Lee) Hayward,[65] on 7 Apr. 1787 in Bridgewater.[66] She was born on 3 Sept. 1758 in Bridgewater,[67] a granddaughter of Elisha and Experience (Harvey) Hayward.[68] Children not found.[69] He served as a private in the Revolutionary War from Bridgewater in Capt. James Allen’s Company for 3 years, from 1777 to 1780, including the winter in Valley Forge, and again for 3 months in 1781.[70] They were living in Bridgewater, MA, in the 1790,[71] and 1800 federal censuses,[72] in East Bridgewater, MA, in the 1810 federal census, next door to his brother Joseph Bolton,[73] and in Bridgewater, MA, in the 1820 federal census.[74] On 6 Apr. 1819 Silvanus Pratt, a friend and neighbor of Philip Bolton, of Bridgewater, Labourer, petitioned that by reason of age and infirmity he has become non compos mentis and incapable of taking care of himself and his estate, and after the inquisition John E. Howard, of Bridgewater, Merchant, was appointed as his guardian on 17 May 1819.[75] Philip Bolton filed for a Revolutionary War Pension in 1820.[76] He died intes­tate in 1823 in Bridgewater, and Solomon Perkins, of Bridgewater, Forgeman, was granted administration of his estate on 17 Feb. 1823, which was insolvent.[77] Bethiah Bolton, widow of Philip Bolton, filed an application for a widow’s pension on 1 Aug. 1828, and made a declaration on 9 May 1848, explaining that she had moved to Middleborough, but no death record was found for Bethiah (Hayward) Bolton in Bridgewater or Middleborough.[78] She died testate in 1848 in Middleborough, her will dated at Raynham, MA, on 1 May 1847, and probated on the last Tuesday of November, 1848, she mentioned her friend Sarah W. Wood, wife of Elihu T. Wood, and left her estate to William C. Alden and Gustavus L. Alden, sons of Mr. Oliver H. Alden, and she named Oliver H. Alden, the husband of her niece, as executor of her estate.[79] (See Appendix [A] for a full transcription of her will.)

His son Jacob Washburn died less than three months after the will was probated, so the goods that Jacob received from his father’s estate were redistributed among his brothers and sisters, namely Solomon Washburn, William Washburn, Moses Washburn, Tabitha Bartlett, wife of David Bartlett, Martha Johnson, wife of Nathaniel Johnson, and Abigail Walbridge, wife of Eleazer Walbridge.[90] Martha (Orcutt) Washburn died on 2 Dec. 1794 in Stafford, aged 86 years.[91]

If she was the female aged 70-79 in the household of her son, Isaiah Washburn, Jr., in Georgia, VT, in the 1830 federal census, then she was probably born after 1750, which was more compatible with the birth of her husband, in 1750.
