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

November 1742, Pennsylvania

November 11, 1742- Robert Roberts, son of Cadwalader Roberts, marries Sarah Ambler, daughter of Joseph Amber & Ann Williams, at the Gywnedd Monthly Meeting in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.

November 30, 1742- Six years after his marriage to Esther Rhoades, Nathan Potts was required to make acknowledgement for his "outgoing," to Abington Monthly Meeting.
The couple had been married at the First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, and was accomplished contrary to the "usage of Friends".

(Nathan Potts is my first cousin 8 times removed. Our common ancestors are Thomas Potts & Elizabeth Baset.
Sarah Ambler is my second cousin 7 times removed. Our common ancestors are Aret Klincken & Niske Agnes Jensen.)
