Am researching my husband's Harrison & Washburn connections. We have a booklet called "Notes & Travels of Ira Harrison [Jr]", written by his daughter Viola, my husband's great-great aunt.
A quote from the book: "In the fall of 1887 father [Ira Jr] visited his birthplace in [Erie County] Pennsylvania & attended the Washburn reunion at which there were over one hundred ate dinner together. These were mostly descendants of Basaliel & Stephen Washburn, ancestors of grandma [Deborah] Harrison."
I'm trying to determine whether Deborah was a daughter or granddaughter of Basaliel or Stephen. She was born abt 1805 in Otsego County, NY and married Ira Harrison Sr. before 1828.
Also, does anyone have any more information about the family reunion in Erie County Pennsylvania in 1887?
