Families of the Children of Thankful4 Washburn and John3 Adams

 

 

         John Adams and Thankful Washburn lived in Kingston, Massachusetts, where they raised a large family, and their children also lived, their daughters marrying into the prominent Kingston Holmes, Cooke and Faunce families. Many of their grandchildren moved elsewhere in Massachusetts, many to Maine, and some to New Hampshire, Vermont and Ohio. Thankful Washburn left a very great number of descendants, and because she was a daughter her family will not be carried further beyond this file, with the exception of the several grandchildren who married back into the Washburn family. I will add to this from time to time as new information is uncovered. This file may take a while to load.
