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

Southern Maryland, 2010

I have finally made my pilgrimage to the Worland's ancestral home in Charles County, Maryland. We flew into Washington DC on Friday from San Francisco.
John Worland III owned a plantation in the Port Tobacco area known as "the Sly Fox." At this time, I have not located the site, but I know he walked upon this very ground.

We visited St. Ignatius Church earlier today, beautiful site with so many familiar names.
I will be posting some great stuff in the next few weeks, when I get back home and begin to absorb all that I have seen.

  1. I love this little church. We visited for Sunday service when staying in the area.
