Washburn, E

Eleazer Washburn

Bridgewater, housewright, (1746-1828)

m Hulda Woods 1769, m Sarah Southworth 1771, most of the children born in East Bridgewater


An East Bridgewater town listing has Eleazer included as a RW soldier along brothers Isaac, Levi, Alden as well as with Solomon. (It should be noted that Bridgewater birth records do not include any additional Eleazer’s for the period.) (A 1775 Capt Robert Orr mm record (E. Washburn, drummer (?)) and a 1777 Capt Noah Allen record are probably not relevant.)
