|Comment||Hello Russ and Derrick, Charles Campbell Worthington of NY and Shawnee-on-Delaware PA had a Daughter Alice Rice Worthington from his second marriage. She married and divorced Lionel Noah. I’ll see if I can find a Took or Tucker.|
|None of these is in my tree. Sorry. I have not been on your website for a couple of years (working elsewhere) so this is the first time I’ve seen the post by John Worthington Austin. If he is still trying to put together the entire tree of Captain John, he might want to look at my tree (Shaw Kutnewsky Family Tree on Ancestry). My line descends from Capt. John through John to Samuel, but then comes down through Samuel’s second wife Martha Garrettson. Their oldest son was Nicholas who moved to (West) Virginia and lived at Beach Bottom, Brooke, right along the Ohio River. Nicholas married Mary Jones and their son Samuel Garrettson Jones Worthington was a well respected Methodist Episcopal circuit riding preacher for 50 years.
|Question- Is there any relation or could you tell me what the connection is between my grandmother Alisha Worthington Tooke(Born Alice Worthington Tucker) and CC Worthington?|
I’m trying to determine if we are related to Samuel Worthington who founded Worthington Springs, Florida. My grandmother told me stories of somehow we were related through either her mother, Martha Lucinda Shepherd or her father, Ezra C. Fisher. My grandmother’s name was Esther Ina Fisher. I’ve puttered on Ancestry.com, but couldn’t find a connection…in fact the trail runs cold at Martha and Ezra – I can’t find any records of their parents. Any insight would be much appreciated.
A Query from Sharon Culver-Rease
I am struggling to find the parents of my great grandmother, Martha A Worthington who was born March 15, 1870 in Kansas. She had a brother Edward born in October 1876. The information I have is from census and marriage records. She moved to Missouri at 18 and got married. I would welcome any suggestions.
Good Morning! I have a Worthington ancestor who is a mystery. She is known as Sarah Worthington. She was supposedly born 1741 in Connecticut. She was the wife of Cornelius Drake (1741-1818). Sarah Worthington Drake died in Christian County Kentucky. The Drake family line is well researched and fleshed out but no one seems to know anything about Sarah Worthington. Any info you may have would be much appreciated. I really enjoyed your site!

Thanks for this blog, Russ.
I retired 6 mo ago and am doing my tree on ancestry.com synced to FamilyTreemaker3 for Mac. It is so much easier to amend than doing gedcoms for upload to Rootsweb WorldConnect.
I used to chat with you on Worthington-L when my mother was publishing the 1837 diary of Margaret Worthington. Mother passed away in Dec 2013 at age 100.
I have copies of her book “Daughter of Adena” for sale, and used copies as well as print to order copies are available on Amazon.
Today I have been studying ancestors of Robert the Quaker Worthington’s wife Margaret Mat(t)hews. If I succeed in verifying the line, it goes to William Wynter, treasurer of the royal navy under QE I, who also was in the battles with France and Spain–see the wiki about him if anyone is interested.
Thank you for the Query Alice.
