I have a slight connection to the Worthington’s in Florida (Washington County). Please see my tree at http://online.dralex.com/margmarieh/. Click on “People”, then “W”.

Florida Worthington married into my Kolmetz line. (She was not in my direct ancestry). I would recommend that you check into the history of this family and see if they are connected to your line. I will look in my Washington County Heritage book and see what I can find, too,

  • 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.

    Samuel Worthington of Worthington Springs, Florida was the g.son of the above Samuel and the son of John and Elizabeth (Davis) Worthington b.1785, New Berry S.C. d. Otter Creek, Levy Co. Florida. Samuel was very eccentric and had quite a bit of money for people of that day, his father grew cotton and grew more cotton per acre than any person in New Berry, County and I guess he received his share of the money also when John died. Samuel built a house of oak blocks, and this house was one of the best in that part of Florida. His boys played near the Santa Fee River and near where they lived. One day while digging in the sand, a trickle of water started to flow and they ran home to tell their father. This is where Samuel “built” the Springs
