I am also a descendent of William Whitten Wash, Sr., by way of his daughter, Sarah E. Wash, who married Abraham G. Tucker of Georgia.
You are correct that there are two/two William Washes -- one of whom married a Lipscomb (not "ours.")Oddly, both men hail from Louisa County, Virginia.However, Whitten Wash was indeed the RevWar veteran, and he has a colorful story of enlistment, capture, escape, and re-enlistment that makes good reading.Long and short, he died in 1837 in that part of Randolph County, Georgia, which became part of today's Clay County.His son, Hartwell J. Wash, bought the land in which his father rests.(Details later.)
If you are amenable, I would like to work with you on our shared interest in the Wash family.Please do not hesitate to contact me directly here in Fairfax, Virginia. G. L. Lamborn
