    Those were two different Edward Worthingtons. The one who built Worthington’s Station died in New Orleans in 1804.

    • tamzion,

      Do you have some additional information that will help us tell the difference between the two Edward Worthington’s. Certainly, “died in New Orleans in 1804″ is very helpful, but do you have other information?

      Thank you,

      Russ

        I don’t know much about the one who was in the house of reps. I believe this “other one” lived in Mercer Co., KY, on 509 acres.

        I have a file cabinet full of info. on Captain Edward Worthington (the one who died in New Orleans in 1804 and lived at Worthington Station). This was in Lincoln Co., KY. He had thousands of acres of land holdings from land patents, preemptions, and service in the military.

        What specifically do you want to know?

        Captain Edward Worthington is attributed to being a long hunter and one of early settlers of KY. He fought under George Rogers Clark in the Revolution and helped Clark take Ft. Sackville in Vincennes in Feb. 1879. He lived first at Harrodsburg and then he lived in Lincoln Co., KY. He went to New Orleans pursuing a man who owed him money and while down there, died of yellow fever in 1804. (His son Charles went with him and completed the lawsuit in New Orleans.)

        I’m a descendant of Captain Edward Worthington.
