I am searching for documentation on the children of Ephraim Washburn and Rebekah Dunham who were married in 1785 in MA.
Revolutionary War Veteran Ephraim Washburn was born 1/21/1760 died 4/17/1836.
Rebekah Dunham born abt 1757 died age 69 in 1826.
According to "The Washburn Family" JAMES WASHBURN (my line) was born 5/6/1790, died 12/19/1868. He married Betsey Bonney 7/15/1810 in Turner, ME.
I am looking for info the DRT would find acceptable...
Any and ALL help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Bess. I've seen your name mentioned a few times in my efforts to validate our ancestors for Mayflower. I recently received a copy of a marriage license from Madison County, Iowa for Josiah Palmer and Margaret Whited.Don't know if they are yours. The very nice lady in Madison that I emailed about the record also mentioned your name. I'm an Ancestry member also. I am working with the Arkansas Mayflower Society towards membership. Joe and Margaret are my 2nd great grandparents. I have 7 more birth, marriage, and death records to collect. I started on this 3 yrs ago and have joined DAR thru the Zorn line ; my moms' side. Mayflower is also on my moms' side. I have been verified by Arkansas for James Chilton, Francis Cooke, William Brewster and Experience Mitchell to get started with. Edward Doty was a no go. You are very close on the 12 ancestors though. Is there anyone else out there looking or is it just us ? Maybe we can help each other. Thanks
