A question from a reader of this blog:
||Is this Worthington bunch any relationship to the Samuel Worthington that was killed in Texas in the early 1830′s?
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.

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.
