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 Keisha Foulke
Hello, this is an old thread so I have no clue if any of you will respond, however I’m back tracking my grand mother Ruth Elizabeth Worthington’s family heritage. Apparently we have Native American in our blood thanks to a possibly a descendant of Virginia, a general as my dad heard. But now most of all the Worthington relatives are dead from the side of the Native American blood. I’m not sure if any of you guys know anything about it but email me firstname.lastname@example.org you have a clue, thanks.

I’ve traced my Worthington line to Charles Worthington, born August 2nd 1820 in Pennsylvania, but I can’t find his parents! He was married to Caroline Dimm, and the two lived in Wolf, Lycoming, PA, before moving to Kansas. Any help with his parents would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thank you for that. I will have to see if I can find that book. I wonder if your grandfather knew the Worthington’s from Frederick, like Judge Glenn Howard Worthington, who was also involved with the move of Capt. John.
Again, Thank you,

I’d like to know if there is any relation here to the Worthington family in Crenshaw County, Alabama. My mother was Betty Worthington and her parents were Carney Eddie and Obie Lee Worthington.

My Great-Grandfather left Oklahoma and settled in Lindale, Texas. His name was Issac Worthington, I believe. He was a peace officer of some kind in Oklahoma. Peace was in short supply those days in Oklahoma. He ended up killing a member of some gang. He knew if he stayed, the rest would kill him. That is when he moved to Texas. His Dad had moved to Oklahoma, from Tennessee. I am not sure, but I have heard that he was in the “Oklahoma land run”. His brother moved to California. When my Grandfather, William Shelby Worthington was getting on in years, a man & his wife drove up to their house, and told him that he was his cousin from California. He did not even know that his Dad had any siblings. Because of this, I have met a few of that branch of the family.

My ggf was David Greenwood Worthington born 1821 in Mississippi . He showed up in Washington County,Florida about 1845 on the first Florida voters list and lived there till his death in 1893 .
He married and raised a large family before his death. I have not found any parents for him, I did find one brother Martin M. Worthington born in 1819 also in Mississippi.
If anyone has any information on this line please help.
