Family of the Child of Ichabod4 Washburn and Bethiah Phillips

 

            Ichabod Washburn and Bethiah Phillips left descendants only through their daughter Bethiah Washburn, their son Melatiah having left no children, and their other two children having died young, so I have included three generations of descendants of Bethiah in this file, and will not be carrying it further. Much of the later generations will be added to with further research.
