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

Wild Rhododendrons on Whidbey Island

There is a beautiful old campground near Coupeville on Whidbey Island, Washington. It is where the wild rhododendrons grow. I remember it from my childhood.
Family legend says my uncle shot a bear here.
