Families of the Children of Nathan5 Washburn and Mary Mahurin

 

         The families of the children of Nathan Washburn and Mary Mahurin are a little more challenging than most because of the general lack of records created by them, so this section will be a work in progress for some years. Son Hugh Washburn remained in Easton, Massachusetts, but son Robert moved to New Salem, Massachusetts, and son Salathiel moved to Westmoreland, New Hampshire, and then to Vermont. Several of these families are not yet complete and will be added to as new information is discovered.
