Charles Brinkley, Jr is a 4th great grandson of Joseph and Elizabeth (Mann) Washburn. He states that Joseph is buried at Salem Cemetery (Wabash DAR Chapter records), and that Elizabeth is buried in the Old Pioneer Cemetery, Waynetown. He also states her date of death as 22 August 1833 - "she died in her 61st year". This information came from Charles' 3rd great grandfather's bible (Cornelius Washburn) and in his own handwriting.
