Query: Samuel Wortington, Texas

A question from a reader of this blog:

Comment 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.

Thank you,

    The Worthington family name is not an uncommon name pertaining to most wars, including the American Civil War. I have heard and read of several stories and commentaries mentioning this family, which (I believe) believed strongly in duty to country. (As we say today… “Freedom is not free”.)

    Best wishes with your family history search on Texas’ Civil War era Samuel Worthington (if I understood correctly). I live in Texas, and would be interested in learning more of your family member as well. Keep us informed. Good luck in your research. -M
