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

August 1736, Connecticut

August 7, 1736- David Doolittle dies at the age of 29 in Wallingford, New Haven, Connecticut.
"Families of Ancient New Haven" by Donald Lines Jacobus shows that David is
"probably" the son of Theophilus Doolittle and Thankful Hall. David married Mary Bassett in 1734.

(David Doolittle is my first cousin 9 times removed. Our common ancestors
are Abraham Doolittle & Abigail Moss.)
