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. Early Maryland caught my eye - my Richard Brightwell arrived in 1666 and became Captain of the Horse Rangers; his grandson, my William Kinnick, was a Sergeant Major in the Rev War.
    As you say, so well: "This is their story, and the story of a nation."

    Keep those ancestor stories coming!
