I wish that I had taken better notes.I don't remember where the name Washburn first came from, but I do know that there are several Washburn connections to this family.I received an email from a lady that had found an 1848 probate record (pg 106, dated 7 Jul 1848) in Stoddard MO where two Washburn children were given to William H. Back.
My husbands connection is to Lavinia P Back/Bach who was first married to a Charles Harvey.Together they had two daughters, Emma Rosetta Harvey (Kirby) born 18 Oct 1863, and Elizabeth Serilda Jane Harvey (Baker)(Robertson) born 8 Jan 1865.The info we have is that ESJH was born in Carbondale, Jackson, Illinois.ESJH is our connection.
Family information is that Charles Harvey was from New York and was disowned by his family because he fought for the south in the Civil War.We believe that he died in that war, but have never found proof of this.I have found a Charles Harvey that SEEMS to fit, but no proof.
Lavina P Back/Bach (Harvey)(Causey)(Maton)(Allmon) died in Swifton, Jackson, Arkansas.
This is the 1880 census for Lavina.

I believe (but have not proven) that the Elizabeth E Phillips above is the sister of Lavina Back.It appears that this couple probably married in Stoddard MO and are living there, before they had children, near William Back. One of the many Phillips children is named Thomas WASHBURN Phillips, and another is named Charity,(shown as Chanty above).
I would love to find someone that has researched the John and Elizabeth Phillips family and see if they also believe that she is a Back/Bach.
