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

April 22, 1726- Mary Tant has died in St. Mary's County, Maryland. Mary was born to John Tant & Margaret Drury in St. Mary's. She married John Manning, he died in 1716. There is evidence that her 19-year-old son Mark died in 1726, and that his mother Mary had already died.

(Mary Tant is my first cousin 8 times removed. Our common ancestor is Robert Drury.)
