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.
