The Anne White book includes a quote regarding Mary Tolley Worthington, first wife of Samuel (b.1734) “In honor of Mrs. Mary Worthington, wife of Samuel Worthington, who was born 21st day of March, 1744, and departed this life the first day of October 1777, Aged 37 years 6 months, leaving a disconsolate husband and 11 weeping children to lament their loss.
This amiable woman lived beloved and died lamented by both rich and poor. And her soul is gone to heaven above enjoying her dear redeemers love; While time shall roll and never end A blest eternity to spend.”
Do you know if that was an obit.?, inscription on her grave marker? or other?

If you have in your database William Worthington (1 May 1761 – 5 Jun 1848) you might be interested in a documented account of at least some of his Revolutionary War record:
There is an updated version available upon request.

A question from a reader of this blog:
||Is this Worthington bunch any relationship to the Samuel Worthington that was killed in Texas in the early 1830′s?
Which “Worthington bunch” are you speaking of?
I know and have researched at least 4 Worthington lines in the USA starting about 1650. This Blog is not about any one of them, I am a descendant of one of the 4.
Please provide some additional information so that we can help you.
If you are a reader of this blog and know of a Samuel Worthington who was killed in Texas in the early 1830′a, please post a reply to drenshaw1.

A Query from Keisha Foulke
Hello, this is an old thread so I have no clue if any of you will respond, however I’m back tracking my grand mother Ruth Elizabeth Worthington’s family heritage. Apparently we have Native American in our blood thanks to a possibly a descendant of Virginia, a general as my dad heard. But now most of all the Worthington relatives are dead from the side of the Native American blood. I’m not sure if any of you guys know anything about it but email me email@example.com you have a clue, thanks.
