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

June 1737, Rhode Island

June 6, 1737- Marmaduke Ward is born to Joseph Ward & Sarah Weeden in Newport County, Rhode Island.

(Ward name meaning: English: occupational name for a watchman or guard, from Old English weard ‘guard’)

 June 8, 1737- Barnett Sisson marries Catherine Briggs in Little Compton, Newport County, Rhode Island.

(Marmaduke Ward is my second cousin 8 times removed. Barnett Sisson is his first cousin once removed. Barnett Sisson is my first cousin 9 times removed. Our common ancestors are George Sisson & Sarah Lawton. )
