1737- My sixth great grandparents, David Potts & Ann Roberts, are married in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Ann was David's second wife, a woman of dark complexion, and was familiarly known as "Nancy." His first wife, Elizabeth Jane Lane, had died in 1735.
Deborah Burson is born to Joseph Burson & Mary Rachel Potts at Gilbert's Manor in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

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
