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.

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.

Charles Worthington = Jane Miller

Charles Worthington met Jane Miller in the Joplin, Missouri area. She had lived for a time in Indian territory. There were four known children born of their marriage; Hurley, Dolly, George,and Vernon. George was b. 1893. Charles Worthington died (Between 1893 and 1900) near the Taney, Ozark County boarders. By this time Tyre and Mary Miller had homesteaded there. Some of the boys of the family took lumber Tyre and Mary had for building their house to make the coffin for Charles Worthington. Tyre remarked he hoped no one else in the family died or he would never get the house done:” Jane Worthington remarried a Mr. Brooks. The two older children were thought to have stayed

In Missouri. The two younger, ones— were in Harper County, Oklahoma.
