The Worland Family in America and Beyond

I began my life in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, on an island filled with forests and wild rhododendrons. I was separated from my Worland family there at an early age. Recently, I was reunited with my family and learned of my heritage. And so, this journey to know my ancestors began. The Worlands, Gideons, Newtons, Conards... they were the colonists, the settlers, the pioneers. They fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War. This is their story, and the story of a nation. -Deci Worland MacKinnon

The person I most remember is my grandmother. (We called her "Ma.") My grandfather passed before I was born.

I visited family gravesites on my trip to Whidbey Island, and thought of all those who went before me. The ones I barely remembered or never knew.
Most of my life, I had no family or no past. Now, I need to know. And so, this journey began. I decided to trace my ancestry.
In the interest of privacy, this blog will not deal with the living, only those that have gone before.
I know nothing of my father or his line, I do not even know his name.
So, I began with my maternal grandparents - Alfred and Rosella Worland.
