Actually this is not correct. First off Zebulon's will does not mention the Widow
Washburn at all. Silas was close to the Widow Susannah and one could guess a connection.
Regarding the mention of Beverly Robinson being Bevery JR the son of the spy, that is not
correct either. He was in fact a Beverly Robinson but not JR and it does not say JR on
the record of overseers of the poor. The spy's son was not in Putnam at that time, so
he was not looking after the Widow's children.
