Louise Strode Worthington passed away last night in her sleep.
We want to thank our distant cousin JEAN DAVEY, KENT, ENGLAND for all the “goodies” she sent – pictures of Manor homes, Coat of Arms, wills, tombstone inscriptions. We hope to get many of these in our October issue.
We wish to welcome a far distant cousin from the greatest distance – WELCOME! JAN WORTHINGTON from SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA.

I am not myself a WORTHINGTON descendant but am related to all decendants of Capt. John WORTHINGTON in this country, being descended from his widow; SARAH HOWARD, and her second husband, CAPT. JOHN BRICE. My interest is in tracing the ancestors of CAPT. JOHN WORTHINGTON and CAPT. JOHN BRICE in England and ascertaining whether there may have been a connection between the families of SARAH HOWARD’S two husbands on the other side of the water. It is alleged that CAPT. JOHN BRICE was a son of JOHN BRICE (1620-1685), son of WORTHINGTON BRICE ( d. 1623 ) and his wife JOAN AVERIC; grandson; grandson of HUGH BRICE and his wife DOROTHY WORTHINGTON. I would be most grateful to any clues. Brice M. Clagett, Holly Hill, Friendship, Md. 20758
