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

September 1710, Pennsylvania

September 27, 1710- William Lukens and Elizabeth Tyson are married at the Abington Meeting House in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
William Lukens owned an excellent farm in Horsham township. It lay along the south side of Privet Road from Horsham Road to the county line. William's house was a log building, which stood a few rods from Privet Road on the opposite side of a small stream, known as early as 1713 as William Luken's Run. William was a devout member of the Society of Friends.
