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!

Samuel Worthington of Worthington Springs, Florida was the g.son of the above Samuel and the son of John and Elizabeth (Davis) Worthington b.1785, New Berry S.C. d. Otter Creek, Levy Co. Florida. Samuel was very eccentric and had quite a bit of money for people of that day, his father grew cotton and grew more cotton per acre than any person in New Berry, County and I guess he received his share of the money also when John died. Samuel built a house of oak blocks, and this house was one of the best in that part of Florida. His boys played near the Santa Fee River and near where they lived. One day while digging in the sand, a trickle of water started to flow and they ran home to tell their father. This is where Samuel “built” the Springs
