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

1739, Connecticut

1739- Moses Wetmore is lost at sea, at age 45, with his young sons, Isaac and Moses. Young Moses was 16, Isaac only nine.
The son of Nathaniel & Dorcas Wetmore, Moses had married Margaret Johnson. They lived in Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut. The couple produced eight children. Following Moses' death, only four survived.

(Moses Wetmore is my first cousin 9 times removed. Our common ancestors are Thomas Whitmore & Sarah Hall.)
