I see you also have a REEVE line you research. I have several myself from the Newark Essex, NJ area and was wondering if there may be a connection.
My REEVE is Doctor Watts Reeve, b abt Jun 1919 in NJ d 19 Mar 1885 Newark, NJ (not profession , it’s his 1st name) married to Susan C. Dean b. abt 1827 in NJ d. 11 Feb 1896 in Newark, NJ Married in Springfield , NJ on 22 Apr 1847
They had 8 children, Arron W. b 1848, Ann W. b. 1849, Doctor Wilber b.1849 Unknown boy b. 1851 Horace e. b. 1854; Laura Virginia, b. 1858 d 1949; Emma, b abt 1862 and Edward, b abt 1864.

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!
