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, Rhode Island

August 22, 1736- Anne Tripp dies at the age of 57 in Westerly, Washington, Rhode Island.
Anne Tripp was born in 1679 to Peleg Tripp & Anne Sisson.
She married Thomas Rodgers. I have the same date of death for both Thomas and Ann.
During that year, 1736, Jonathan Gilbert deeded two tracts at Deep Creek Bridge in Bertie County, North Carolina, adjacent to Robert Rogers, to their son, Job Rogers. Bertie County, NC Deed Book D, page 298.
