Anne,

I, too, share your desire to get more Washburn DNA results. My wife's father is a Washburn and my research indicated that he was descended from the John Washburn of Culpeper Co., VA. All the names and dates seemed to match. The earliest proven ancestor on my wife's Washburn line was in northern KY in the early 1800s. These names track back to VA. Well, DNA tests on her father showed that he wasn't related at all to any of the VA Washburn line.
