My Great-Grandfather left Oklahoma and settled in Lindale, Texas. His name was Issac Worthington, I believe. He was a peace officer of some kind in Oklahoma. Peace was in short supply those days in Oklahoma. He ended up killing a member of some gang. He knew if he stayed, the rest would kill him. That is when he moved to Texas. His Dad had moved to Oklahoma, from Tennessee. I am not sure, but I have heard that he was in the “Oklahoma land run”. His brother moved to California. When my Grandfather, William Shelby Worthington was getting on in years, a man & his wife drove up to their house, and told him that he was his cousin from California. He did not even know that his Dad had any siblings. Because of this, I have met a few of that branch of the family.

  • My ggf was David Greenwood Worthington born 1821 in Mississippi . He showed up in Washington County,Florida about 1845 on the first Florida voters list and lived there till his death in 1893 .

    He married and raised a large family before his death. I have not found any parents for him, I did find one brother Martin M. Worthington born in 1819 also in Mississippi.

    If anyone has any information on this line please help.

    DEar Worthington relatives,

    I just asked my mother-in-law for information on her family. She was born a Worthington in Oklahoma. Her dad was one of 12 siblings born in Arkansas or northern Louisiana. She recounted the names of several aunts and uncles she remembered meeting. The link I found in searching information led to a man whom my mother-in-law remembers, but whose e-mail address had been cancelled since his post on an ancestry.com site or some other such site.

    I don’t have a lot of time for genealogy, but I’d like to dabble some, and someday I’ll perhaps get more into it. The info I have goes back only a very little way to Albert’s father and perhaps his grandfather. I don’t know a lot yet aobut searching public records.
    It was interesting to see your website.

    After all these years… there is a website for the Worthington Descendants??? I am very excited to be here!

    I used to write to, I believe, her name was Francis Brengle… she was so helpful and patient when I first started in 1986.

    I am still researching my Worthington line in hopes to be connected to Maryland from North Carolina. Each year, I get closer…

    I just can’t believe this website!

    Thank you so much for doing this!

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Claude E. Worthington III

    Blog Query: Monroe Willets Worthington

    This is all sort of new to me.

    My father was Monroe Worthington, born is Stevens County Kansas in 1904. His middle name was Willets but for some reason he never used it. I believe that Henry Russell W. must have been my grandfather as well. They left Kansas around 1910 and eventually settled in Bluefield, WV.

    I don’t know if I even have any specific questions about this but I have always wondered about all the moves and the people and all the reasoning. Maybe the curiousity comes with the advanced age.

    I did meet Josiah Wistar when I was very young, probably around 8 or ten. It could not have been much before he was killed. Also met two sons who I believe were named Fayette and Wilson. I believe his wife was named Bernice.

    Is any of this correct? Its been a long time.
