No Plymouth County death record for Thomas Washburn has been found, that I know of. There was a Thomas Washburn who was one of the very first settlers of Bureau County, Illinois, arriving there by 1831. He lived in section 23 of Wyanet township (the L. Triplett farm on this 1867 map). This is just a few miles from where Stillman and Lucinda (Washburn) Vaughan would settle in 1851. This may be a coincidence, or it may indicate that Thomas Washburn of Wareham, father of Lucinda, is the same as Thomas Washburn of early Bureau County. If so, I'm curious as to the circumstances of his leaving Plymouth County for the Illinois frontier.
