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 1741

Isaac Shoemaker & Hannah Roberts are married in Pennsylvania.
Isaac Shoemaker is the son of Peter J. Shoemaker & Margaret Op den Graeff. Hannah is the daughter of Thomas Roberts & Margaret Gove. Both were born in Germantown.
The couple settled in Upper Dublin township, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) county, where Isaac purchased a tract of land and followed the life of a farmer.

(Isaac Shoemaker is my third cousin 8 times removed. Our common ancestors are Hermann Op den Graeff & Gretjen Driessen Pletjes and Pieter Dohrs & Lysgen Grietes.)
