The Worthington’s were among the first early settlers before 1840. Mrs. E.B. Worthington taught the first school in Harrisbury[1] in a frame house. A lot was given for the location of school. The first pupils were William Kilgour with his sister Nancy Jane. Afterward Mrs. John Crawford, four of the Bush family and a nephew, a brother of Charlie Worthington who was our editor for many years Charlie married Fanny McCartney and lived in the old first ward many years. His father, one of the first settlers kied[2] in those very early days.

The E.B. Worthington’s moved down from the upper town to broadway and as they thus lived outside of either town, Mr. Worthington was the postmaster.

Later, Mrs. Worthington’s daughter Annie taught school.
