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

February 1711, Pennsylvania

February 6, 1711- Herman DeHaven and Anneken Op den Graeff are married at Whitemarsh, (or Wytmes), Church in a township southeast of Whitpain, not far from the present boundaries of Germantown, Pennsylvania. The ceremony was performed by Reverend Van Vlecq.
Herman DeHaven had come to America from Mülheim on the Rühr, Germany in 1698.

(Anneken Op den Graeff is my second cousin 9 times removed. Our common ancestors are Hermann Op den Graeff & Gretchen Driessen Pletjes.)
