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

June 1719, Connecticut

June 28, 1719- Daniel Lawton dies at the age of 80 in Portsmouth, Newport, Connecticut.

(Daniel Lawton is my ninth great granduncle. Our common ancestors are Thomas Lawton & Elizabeth Salisbury.)


  1. Daniel is my eighth great grandfather. Which of his siblings does your side of the family come from. I'm finding this super fascinating and want to thank Leo for his blog that led me here.

  2. Daniel's sister Sarah Lawton is my ninth great grandmother. She married George Sisson in 1667. Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
