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

  1. The D.A.R. gal here in Wenatchee, found all 3 patriots, but found that the spelling was different for John Kunders Conard, she found Cunard instead.

    Born 2/20/1738 Death 4/9/1803 buried Married to Eliabeth Potts

    Then I noticed that Peter Gideon was buried in the Old Potts Cemetary. In the same town as John Cunard was also in. Thanks Deci
