The Newsletter is making great progress. We are getting fine coverage from all distant cousins. Many of you have sent in valuable information on your branch of this vast, wonderful family. No matter how far you are removed from the immigrant ancestors, you have a right to be proud of your blood lines.
Don’t let the mail bag get empty, send in your articles to print in the letter. You each have something to offer. Please share, so that we will not lose knowledge of the ancient ones.
A very interesting fact was sent in by a subscriber, Charles L. Worthington of Atlanta, Ga. It concerned the Bible of Capt. John. It has been in the possession of his family until it was loaned to a family in Annapolis, MD. His father Bruce Worthington had asked him to locate the Bible, which was loaned by his grandfather over forty years ago. Since that time a search has been made for the Bible. The Bible was loaned to a cousin of the family. If anyone has any knowledge of this Bible, please, please let Mr. Worthington know. (See Query column)
Mr. Campbell Worthington tells us about his father’s early life while living at Belmont. His father was Edward Worthington. They built a swimming place and it was fed by cool spring water and the warm gound water, which provided them with their choice – cool or warm swimming. He also relates how his father Edward and his cousin sat in the eaves at Belmont and smoked – no one could see the smoke in the house.
Editor’s note: I think the reference to Belmont is the Worthington Belmont property located in Worthington Valley, Baltimore County, Maryland. It is located in the vicinity of the Montmorenci.
