The name Washburn is de-
\\"ASITBL'RN rived from two simple words
— wash — which applies totbe
swift moving current of a stream, and burn or
bourne, a brook or small stream. It has been
said of the family, whose origin is in England,
that the posterity of John Washburn, the first
immigrant of the name to locate in New Eng-
land, "will scldftm finfl occasion to blush upon
looking back ujjon the past lives of those from
whom they have descended. Fortunate indeed
may the generations now in being, esteem them-
selves, if they can be sure to bequeath to their
posterity an equal source of felicitation." In
this illustrious family have been found some
of our nati(jn"s greatest characters, in public
and private life, statesmen and niilitarv men in
all of the .American wars. Maine. \'crmont.
