My parents are from Henry/Patrick County, Va and Rockingham County, NC.

Send me an email and maybe we can work on them together.

Hi, I am curious to know what evidence is available that places "Walter Abrel" as a son of John & Mildred Comer Washburn? My research has indicated that "Abel S. Washburn" married Sarah Malloy and that Abel's father was Joseph Washburn. I have found no "Walter" Washburn in any documents before the birth of Abel's grandsonn in 1882.

Thanks in advance!
Anne Burton Washburn

Abel/Abraham/Abe S. Washburn and Walter Abrel Washburn were grandfather & grandson

I am posting this under a second thread title so that the information will be available in more than one place.

Abel S. [Smith] Washburn (1825- aft 1880) and Walter Abrel Washburn (1882-1921) were 2 different men. Abel was Walter's grandfather and Sally Malloy was Walter's grandmother. Abel's son, Joseph Daniel Washburn, was Walter's father. Walter married Stella Pearl Joyner on 25 Dec. 1908.

There is misinformation about this family in the R'ham Co. Heritage Book and everywhere else the name "Walter" was tied to the husband of Sally Malloy because of the R'ham Heritage Book.

Best wishes,
Anne Burton Washburn
