Query: Samuel Wortington, Texas

November 5, 2013

A question from a reader of this blog:

drenshaw1@hotmail.com
Comment Is this Worthington bunch any relationship to the Samuel Worthington that was killed in Texas in the early 1830’s?

drenshaw1,

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.

Thank you,

Russ


Query: Ruth Elizabeth Worthington

A Query from Keisha Foulke
Submitted on 2013/04/28 at 5:34 am 

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 keishafoulke@gmail.comif you have a clue, thanks.


QUERY: Descendants of Charles Worthington (1701-1774)

This is a copy of a Query Posted on this blog:

 

Russ,

 

Thanks very much for the personal and prompt response. 2,196 descendants of Captain John is astounding but not too surprising considering he had, by my searches, 31 grandchildren; a GREAT start.

 

(If you’ve never read “Adam’s Curse”, by Bryan Sykes, it makes interesting reading on the spread of DNA down through the generations. Apparently a third of all Asians are descended from Genghis Khan.) Anyway, I’m descended from John’s son Charles via HIS son Charles; from which of Charles senior’s four children do you descend? I have attached an Excel copy of my family tree, if it comes through this email, and you can see the Worthington section on page 4, bottom right. My interest, other than playing with spreadsheets, is to find the other siblings of my string, down through the generations.

 

The fact that you know how many descendants are from Captain John and Charles means there’s info out there. Is it consolidated anywhere?

 

Your blog is amazing. By the way, are you aware that the Worthington House at Monacacy Battlefield was bought by John Thomas Worthington, Captain John’s 3rd great grandson by John’s son John? Per my cousin Fred Jenkins who I believe you know or know of. Keep up the good work. Almost forgot, I had planned on attending the Worthington reunion last year but didn’t make it. I live not far away in Kennett Square, Pa. You met my sister Janet. Our sister Peg Ellis is who you apparently received much research info from, as you mentioned in you blog report.

John,

Please email me your spreadsheet to:

hrworth at gmail dot com

DNA results are interesting, and J2 is the term I think you are suggesting. Don’t know about Genghis Khan though.

I know Fred and met many others (not Fred) at the Reunion this past summer. Had a great time.

I was born and grew up in Chester County.

Here is a link to a Descendant Chart of Capt. John.

It may not be current, but it is online.

You are descendant of Charles Jr (1736 – 1799) while I am descendant of John (1733-1803). My family left Harford County between 1815 and 1866. Don’t know off the top of my head when.

Query: Terry; Foster; Brown

June 10, 2012

Query:

 

I’m very interested in reading more in the blog and would like to add information about my family link.

My g-g-g-grandfather is Ansel Terry married to g-g-g-grandmother Elizabeth Foster and as a widower to Lydia Brown.

One of his sons, David Nelson Terry (my great-great-grandfather) married his second wife Ruth Blackburn Scott and are the parents of My great-grandfather Rev. Lewis (Lute) Sherman Terry who married my great-grandmother Harriet “Hattie” Elizabeth Curtis

And they are parents of my grandfather Jesse Wall Terry who married my grandmother Ruth Adell Nesmith.

I’m new to genealogy research and am excited to find any family links.

Thank you,
Cathy Lowe Clark

QUERY: Bessie Worthington

February 24, 2012

Hi

I wonder whether you have any information about Bessie Worthington, daughter of Henry Fraser Worthington.

She married James O’Hara Murray in 1894. James worked for Henry Rossiter Worthington as a mechanical engineer based in Europe – mostly Berlin. James married again in 1898 and is described as a widower on the marriage certificate so it sees Bessie not have a long life.

Any info very gratefully received!

Thanks

Gill
