She was born at Goshen 11 June 1815 and died at Richfield one year after her marriage. Washington's (2) marriage was on the 04 of October 1842 to Nancy Huntley, born 25 July 1823 at Bozrah, CT. (This marriage date is from his pension application - the Medina county, OH marriage records give the date of 04 October 1846. With this conflict in marriage dates, we accept the former). Washington died 02 April 1853 and Nancy on 19 April 1895. Nancy had previously claimed pension as mother of a deceased Civil War soldier.
