Anna Washburn was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, in 1888, the daughter of Russell and Grace (Wilde) Armington. [1] She spent her early years in Pawtucket, when in 1900 she was the eldest of four children.[2]

Anna was admitted to The Hospital Cottages for Children in Baldwinville, Massachusetts, when she was 12 years old, with epilepsy. She was a patient for 4 years, but was still considered "not improved" when she was discharged to her home on October 2, 1905. [3]

At the time of the 1910 census, she was an inmate at the State Hospital for the Insane at Cranston, Rhode Island.[4] [Epilepsy was frequently treated as a mental health illness at that time.]

She died at the State Hospital the following year. She was 22 years old.[5] She is buried at the Mineral Spring Cemetery.
