Hi, I am trying to find the link between the Washburn family and Rosella Amanda Washburn who married into the McGath family of Athens, Ohio. Her parents were Roswell Washburn (1793-1874) and Anna Parsons (1818-1870). Roswell Washburn's parents were Eleazer Washburn (1776-1837) and Rachel Paulk/Polk (1776-1846). Now many trees have Eleazer's parents as Seth Washburn (1720-1798), son of Samuel and Abagail Leonard who married Elizabeth Unknown, but I cannot find a confirmation of this.
Then I found other trees.
One lists Eleazer's parents as Seth Washburn(son of Rueben Washburn and Betty Dilley, son of James Washburn and Elizabeth Leonard, son of James Washburn and Mary Bowden, son of John Washburn and Elizabeth Mitchell) and Elizabeth Dunbar.
The other suggested lineage is that Eleazer's parents are Soloman Washburn(son of Solomon Washburn and Martha Orcutt, son of Samuel and Abagail Leonard) and Mary Warner.
Does anyone have any idea which lineage is correct or if none of these are correct?
