|Death: ||Apr. 20, 1764|
Rebekah was the daughter of Joseph Washburn and Hannah (Latham) Washburn. Rebekah was probably born in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay.
Rebekah married David Johnson on 7 January 1719/20 in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay. She preceded him in death. They had children:
Isaac - 9 August 1721
David - 8 August 1724
Mary - 29 August 1729
Sarah - 19 July 1732
Rebecca - 22 June 1734
Rebekah died in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay.
NOTE: Rebekah is often identified in various online family trees as "Bethia". The source of this misinformation is Williams Latham's book "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater, Massachusetts". The book states "Bethia", her epitaph, and her plot location. Both her headstone (despite the etching) and footstone demonstrate that her name is Rebekah.
