Families of the Children of Ebenezer4 Washburn and Patience Miles

 

 

         The families of the children of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn are still very tentative, and they may not be entirely correct as given here. More research is undergoing on the Connecticut branches, and there will probably be other grandchildren of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn who will need to be added later. The families of son Joseph Washburn and daughter Rebeckah Washburn are very uncertain, and I have not been able to trace the families of Jonathan, Ebenezer Jr., or David Washburn at all. There has been a lot of discussion and searching for the surname of Martha, wife of Stephen Washburn, but I don’t believe any of the researchers have found proof for the identity of her parents yet. Mary Washburn, wife of Jacob Bull, of Kent, CT, appears to have been the daughter of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn, but I have no proof of it yet.

        [81] Her maiden name is listed as Tabor in the I.G.I. Marriage Records, presumably from LDS temple records, but it is only a guess a guess because of the naming of a son “Tabor” Washburn, and most researchers of this Washburn line believe that name is incorrect. The marriage year was calculated from the approximate birth year of Tabor Washburn in circa 1760.
