This is all sort of new to me.

My father was Monroe Worthington, born is Stevens County Kansas in 1904. His middle name was Willets but for some reason he never used it. I believe that Henry Russell W. must have been my grandfather as well. They left Kansas around 1910 and eventually settled in Bluefield, WV.

I don’t know if I even have any specific questions about this but I have always wondered about all the moves and the people and all the reasoning. Maybe the curiousity comes with the advanced age.

I did meet Josiah Wistar when I was very young, probably around 8 or ten. It could not have been much before he was killed. Also met two sons who I believe were named Fayette and Wilson. I believe his wife was named Bernice.

Is any of this correct? Its been a long time.

Max,

Is your birthday March 8th? If so, we are 2nd cousins.

On this Blog you will see a picture of my Grandfather, Henry Russell Worthington and his brother Josiah Wistar Worthington.

I may have a picture of your father as a very young child.

Thank you for contacting me. We need to stay in touch.

Thank you.
