Families of the Children of Joseph4 Washburn (Jr.) and Hannah Johnson

 

 

         The families of the children of Joseph Washburn (Jr.) and his wife Hannah Johnson lived mainly in Central Massachusetts and Connecticut, and the lack of vital records and probate records for some of the families makes certain identification difficult. The large family of Joseph and Sarah Carly is likewise uncertain. Identification of the names of the husbands of many of the daughters in these families are unknown to me at this time. Special thanks are in order to Jeanne Doty Cady, of San Diego, CA, and Milly Clough of Redwood City, CA, for help on the Wicker and Clough branches, which were extremely difficult.

(469.) Joseph5 Washburn (3rd), eldest son of (131) Joseph4 Washburn (Jr.), (59) Joseph3, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts Colony, in ca. 1718, MA, married Lucia “Lucy” Boardman, daughter of Moses and Silence (Cornwall) Boardman, of Middletown,[1] Hartford Co., CT, on 24 Dec. 1741 in Middletown,[2] and they settled in Middletown, which is now in Middlesex Co., CT. She was born on 14 Aug. 1725 in Middletown, CT,[3] a granddaughter supposedly of Thomas and Sarah (Clark) Cornwall.[4]

         Moses Boardman died in Middletown on 16 Dec. 1737.[5] The inventory of the estate of Moses Boardman, of Middletown, CT, was dated 24 Jan. 1737/8, and administration was granted to his widow, Silence Boardman, on 7 Mar. 1737/8. On 2 Dec. 1746 Joseph Washburn, in right of his wife, Lucy Boardman, alias Washburn, daughter of Moses Boardman, asked the court for a distribution of the moveable estate of Moses Boardman. The estate was distributed to the heirs of Moses Boardman, namely Silence Boardman, his widow, Samuel Boardman, the eldest son, Moses Boardman and Lucy Washburn.[6]

         Joseph Washburn (3rd) died on 26 Sept. 1750 in Middletown,[7] and Lucia (Boardman) Washburn remarried to Nathaniel Montgomery on 12 Aug. 1752 in Middletown.[8] He died on 6 May 1762 in Middletown.[9]

        1435    vi   (Supposedly) Abigail Washburn,[20] marriage not found.

                  vii   Nathaniel Montgomery (Jr.), born on 5 Oct. 1755 in Middletown,[21] married Bathsheba Lewis, daughter of George and Bathsheba (Swift) Lewis, on 19 July 1780 in Chatham, CT.[22] She was born on 25 Jan. 1756 in Barnstable, MA.[23] He served in the Revolutionary War as a fifer in the 8th Connecticut Regiment in Huntington’s 9th Company, and later as a Sergeant in Sherburne’s Regiment.[24] She died on 16 Feb. 1801 in Portland, CT, and he died in 1803 in Chatham, CT.[25]

         Phebe Washburn had 6 children by Samuel Kingman (Jr.), and one more daughter by Jonathan Tryon:

        1436      i   Eunice Kingman, born on 29 Dec. 1737 in Bridgewater, MA,[42] married Giles Hamlin,[43] supposedly son of Edward and Phebe (Stow) Hamlin,[44] on 21 May 1762 in Farmington, Hartford Co., or Canaan, Litchfield Co., CT.[45] He was born supposedly on 6 Dec. 1738 in Middletown,[46] but he was not a head of household in Connecticut in the 1790 federal census.

His death was not recorded in the Bridgewater vital records, however there is recorded the marriage of a Hannah Richardson, widow, and Nathaniel Thayer on 11 May 1777 in Abington, (Bridgewater VRs, Vol. 2, p. 322,) and Nathl Thayer was a head of household in Bridgewater in the 1790 federal census, with 1 free white male aged 16 or over, 2 free white males under 16, and 2 free white females. No death record was found for Hannah Thayer to calculate from her age at death if this could possibly be the Hannah Kingman born in 1740, however Nathaniel Thayer of Bridgewater served in the Revolutionary War in 1780, and at his enlistment he was described as age 26 yrs., so being much younger than Hannah Kingman, the widow Hannah Richardson to whom he married in 1777 was probably a different person.
