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

May 1, 1743- A daughter, Sarah, is born to Ellis Lewis & Mary Tyson in Upper Dublin Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The child will not survive to adulthood, dying shortly before her second birthday.

(Sarah Lewis is my third cousin 7 times removed. Our common ancestors are Mathias Dohrs & Agnes Neesgen Op den Graeff, and Coentgen Lenssen Coenis & Anna Entgen Thones.)
