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

November 1726, Connecticut

November 10, 1726- Daniel Roberts marries Eunice Cornwall at Westfield in Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut.

"Westfield is a pleasant rural village located in the northern part of Middletown, about a mile from the Westfield Station, on the Berlin and Middletown Railroad. The first settler is generally conceded to have been one Edward Higby, whose residence was at the foot of a bluff called 'Higby mountain'. Other early settlers were: Benjamin Atkins, Benjamin, Nathaniel, John, and Joseph Bacon, Joseph Cornwell, Joseph Doolittle, Samuel Plumb, and Daniel ROBERTS, from the first society in this town; John Warner, Israel, John, and Jeremiah Wilcox, from Cromwell; Joseph Clarke, from New Haven; Nathaniel Churchill, from Wethersfield; Edward and Josiah Boardman, from Glastonbury; David and Richard Dowd, Asahel Dudley and Joseph Graves, from Guilford."
