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 1720, Maryland

Sewing notions found during the archealogical excavation of St. Mary's City, Maryland. Implements such as these were likely used by Elizabeth Beard in her daily life.

June 1720- Elizabeth Beard, wife of James Meekin, has died in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

(Elizabeth Beard is my ninth great grandaunt. Our common ancestors are Alice & Robert Beard.)
