Families of the Children of Mary3 Washburn and Samuel Kinsley (Jr.)

 

 

         The children of Mary Washburn are identified by the division of the estate of Samuel Kinsley, and the families of the children are pretty well established, although my list of great-grandchildren may be incomplete, and positive identification of the name of the wife of Samuel Kinsley (3rd) eludes me. Most lived west of Bridgewater in the town of Easton, which was established as the North Purchase of Taunton. Son Samuel Kinsley (3rd) and daughter Bethiah Kinsley moved to the Connecticut town of Norwich, in New London County, with their families. Because Mary Washburn was a daughter, her descendants will not be carried forward further than what is listed here, with the exception of grandchildren John Kinsley and Mary Willis, who married back into the Washburn families.
