Karla Corkran commented on To Submit a Query for the Worthington Surname

If you have a query that you would like to submit query for the Worthington Surname, please post a comment here. What …

Hi, I am the 5th Great Grandaughter of John William Worthington b 1759 VA d 1827 Newberry SC, married Elizabeth Davis. I was hoping to see if anyone knows whether John was a Rev. War Patriot or perhaps his father was, Samuel Worthington Sr. Both of them have dates of birth and death of that period of time.

I am in the DAR and got in through the James Spearman. James’s son Francis Spearman was married to the daughter of John William Worthington, Margaret Worthington (1794-1882 married to Francis Spearman).

Thanks in advance for any information you could give to me!

    Karla, I am a fellow DAR member. I have heard that John was a Patriot in Virginia before going to SC. There is a John Worthington listed in some VA militia group, but I haven’t been able to find proof that it is our John. We do have Henry Tate and Chesley Davis as Patriots, already, however.

    Sorry for the late reply but John Worthington is in my ancestry family tree.
