Families of the Children of Ebenezer4 Washburn and Patience Miles

 

 

         The families of the children of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn are still very tentative, and they may not be entirely correct as given here. More research is undergoing on the Connecticut branches, and there will probably be other grandchildren of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn who will need to be added later. The families of son Joseph Washburn and daughter Rebeckah Washburn are very uncertain, and I have not been able to trace the families of Jonathan, Ebenezer Jr., or David Washburn at all. The surname of Martha, wife of Stephen Washburn, is thought to have been Tabor, because they named a son Tabor Washburn, but I have not found the marriage record to verify it. Mary Washburn, wife of Jacob Bull, of Kent, CT, appears to have been the daughter of Ebenezer and Patience Washburn, but I have no proof of it yet.
