‎[from Popp Family website]‎
I have chosen to use the date of about 1726 for the date of birth of Jeremiah Washburn. This date comes from Lyman Draper\'s interview with Phebe Grant ‎(see William Grant and Phebe Washburn)‎--Phebe ‎(Washburn)‎ Grant, states the following \"Jeremiah Washburn father of Cornelius died in the fall of 1806 aged about 80...\". This would make Jeremiah\'s birth about 1726, but could be later, as Phebe Grant does not state that Jeremiah was actually 80 years old at his death, but about 80.

Don Barnett, a Washburn researcher, found that a Lemuel Washburn was living in Sussex Co. NJ in the neighborhood of the McCoys, Devores and others. While Lemuel is a possibility as Jeremiah\'s father, Don Barnett has formulated a theory that this Lemuel is Lemuel Washburn, born Aug. 18, 1714 the son of Jonathan Washburn and Rebecca Perry of Bridgewater, MA and that Susanna Washburn, daughter of Jonathan Washburn and Rebecca Perry is the mother of our Jeremiah Washburn making Lemuel Washburn Jeremiah\'s uncle. Don bases this theory on the fact that Susanna Washburn had an illegitmate child ca. 1735/36 in Bridgewater, MA. Don believes that this child was Jeremiah and Susanna came to Sussex Co. NJ with her brother, Lemuel, and son, Jeremiah, and married George McCoy, who is mentioned in Jeremiah\'s will as his step-father. However, while we do have a little evidence that the Lemuel Washburn in Sussex Co NJ might be the s/o Jonathan Washburn, we have no actual proof that he was.
While Don Barnett has put together circumstancial evidence, such as Ebenezer Washburn, brother of Jonathan living in Mon. Co. NJ which is near Sussex Co. NJ, to support his theory, he has not been able to find proof to verify it and therefore, I have chosen to leave Lemuel as the possible parent of Jeremiah, though there is no proof of this either. If Jeremiah\'s date of birth is close to 1726, then it is not possible for him to be a child of either Lemuel or Susanna, children of Jonathan Washburn as they would have been too young. If the Lemuel Washburn in Sussex Co. NJ is not the son of Jonathan Washburn, his parentage and date of birth unknown, he may likely be the father of Jeremiah.
My Washburn genealogy does include Nathaniel Washburn born ca. 1740 who some researchers believe to be a brother to Jeremiah Washburn. There was also a John Washburn in Sussex Co. NJ at the time Jeremiah lived there and it is not known who he was. Recently, we have recieved information that Israel B. Washburn, s/o Moses L., s/o Isaac s/o George, s/o Jeremiah Washburn had as an ancestor a Col. Emanuel Washburn who served under Braddock in the French and Indian War. Could this have been Lemuel or was there a Emanuel who could be another possibility for the father of Jeremiah Washburn?? We do not have any information on him.
Another possibility for the parents of Jeremiah Washburn could be Jonathan Washburn and his second wife Rebecca Johnson. I have no information about their possible children, except that the Rebecca Washburn who married Timothy Carver may have been their daughter instead of Ebenezer Washburn\'s. If anyone has any information about the children of Jonathan Washburn and Rebecca Johnson, please contact me.
There is also the possiblitity that Jeremiah does not belong to the John Washburn line at all, but belongs to the William Washburn line. Phebe Grant also states that \"Jeremiah Washburn was a native of England and came to Jersey when he was seven years of age---...\" This could be taken to mean that Jeremiah Washburn was born in England. However, most researchers seem to dismiss this idea and I think Phebe Grant may have meant that Jeremiah had an English ancestry.

Because Jeremiah\'s parentage has not been proven, it also not been proven that he belongs to the Jonathan Washburn line ‎(we do not have proof that the Lemuel Washburn in Sussex Co. NJ was the s/o Jonathan Washburn)‎. Therefore, I have devided my sources for Washburn information into two parts. One part under John Washburn ‎(b. 1566)‎ which includes Lemuel and Susanna Washburn, children of Jonathan. The following are some of my sources for information about Jeremiah Washburn and Rebecca Devore, ‎(including McCoys and Adams and Lemuel Washburn of Sussex Co. NJ)‎ and their families and descendants:
