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

November 1709, Pennsylvania

November 30, 1709- Griffith Jones and Elizabeth Cunard are married at the Abington Monthly Meeting, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Twenty years later, in the will of Thones Kunders, he would give to his son-in-law, Griffith Jones, "The bed and furniture standing in the New Room to be for the use of friends."

(Elizabeth Cunard is my seventh great grandaunt. Our common ancestors are Thones Kunders & Elin Theisson.)
