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 1721, Pennsylvania

October 10, 1721- Abraham Tyson & Mary Hallowell are married in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.
They had received permission of the Abington Monthly Meeting to marry on August 30, 1721, and the marriage was reported accomplished at the meeting of October 27, 1721. She was the daughter of Thomas and Rosamond Hallowell of Abington township, and granddaughter of John and Mary Hallowell, the progenitors of the family, who in 1683 had came from Hucknow parish of Sutton, Nottinghamshire, England, to Darby township, Chester county, Pennsylvania. The family later moved to Abington township, Philadelphia county.

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