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

October 1720, Pennsylvania

Going to Meeting (at Abington) in a Settled Frost

October 21, 1720- John Tyson and Priscilla Naylor are married in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. The Abington Monthly Meeting had granted the permission on August 31, 1720.
Priscilla was a daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Naylor, who in 1683 had came from Monyash, County Derby, England, and took up a tract of land on the stream now called Naylor's Run, in that part of Darby township, Chester county, which afterwards became Upper Darby township, Delaware county.

(John Tyson is my first cousin 9 times removed. Our common ancestors are Mathias Dohrs & Agnes Neesgen Op den Graeff.)
