Alice Josephine WASHBURN was born in Macomb, St. Lawrence Co., New York and was the youngest of the ten children of Nehemiah WASHBURN and Catherine THAYER. In the 1860's she along with with four other siblings (Horace, Levi, Edwin, and Charles Nehemiah) moved to Michigan as did many other people from the Macomb area.
