Fayette Facts (Fayette County Genealogical & Historical Society, Vandalia, IL), v. 8, n. 2, pp. 56-57.  The article mixes up the two WASHBURN brothers, having Leroy married to Sarah and David married to Susan, plus switching of dates, places, and children.  Be aware, too, that the ancestry of Susanna STRAUB as given in the article is incorrect:  she was not descended from Andrew and Mary (WALTER) STRAUB of Milton, PA.  The article contains other substantial errors, so confirm, confirm, confirm!
