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

July 1731, Pennsylvania

July 9, 1731- George Burson, Jr. and Sarah Cox, daughter of Richard Cox & Margaret Potts, are married at Gilbert's Manor in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
The marriage took place at the house of John Jacobs, Sr. Among the witnesses were Richard and Hannah Cox, Joan Potts, William and Elizabeth Burson, Conraed and Anne Conraed, and eighteen others.
The couple initially resided at Province, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. In 1754, George, Jr. and his wife Sarah moved to Loudoun County, Virginia. Most of the Bursons in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado, and California are descendants of George and Sarah Burson---according to the books: "Burson Story" by Eleanor Burson and "The History of the Burson Family" by John C. Burson.

(Sarah Cox is my second cousin 7 times removed. Our common ancestors are Thomas Potts & Elizabeth Baset.)
