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

1772 Maryland

1772- Rebecca, second wife of John Worland III (John Henry), dies in Charles, Maryland.
Rebecca had married John in November,1754, following the death of his first wife in April of the same year.
It seems his first wife died during the birth of their fourth child, Eleanor, leaving John a widower with four small children.
Rebecca and John's marriage produced four more children; Henry, Mary, William and James.
