QUERY: Thomas Janney, Jr

June 22, 2017

A query from Kathryn Schultz

My husband’s mother descends from the Quaker immigrant and “Publisher of Truth” Thomas Janney, Jr., who arrived in Philadelphia in late September 1683 with his family and settled near Newtown in Bucks Co.

His mother was Elizabeth Worthington, born in 1604 and married Thomas Janney, Sr. of Styal, Cheshire in 1625. I do not have any information on her parents. Thomas Janney, Sr. was the son of Randle Janney, whose parents were Thomas and Jane/Jone Worthington Janney, who married in 1578.

Do you know whether there is a connection between these Cheshire Worthingtons and yours in New Jersey? Thanks for your help.

I checked my Worthington databases and don’t have a Janney in any of my files..

Newtown, in Bucks County is a location where Worthington’s have can be found, but about 100 years later. My “Byberry” Worthington line didn’t arrive until about 1705 and they came from Lancashire, England.

I have a couple of other places to look, but will make this Blog Post so that others may help us / you with this Query.

Thank youquestion-mark-face

Frances Darlington Strode Lamberti (1925–2016)

August 3, 2016

Today, we lost Frances Darlington Strode Lamberti. She and I always had contact on OUR Birthdays, hers the day before mine, like my Brother and our grandmother.

A week or so ago, she had fallen and broken her hip. She was back for Rehab before she returned home. We later learned that she had other medical issues, so today was “almost” a relief. I am only sorry that I wasn’t able to get to see her one more time.

She was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. She loved San Antonio and her time in England.

This picture was taken in August 1952, San Antonio, Texas.

A couple of years earlier, she is with her two nephews in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Today, in the mail

July 5, 2016

I have been expecting a letter from my Colorado cousin. Today it arrived. There are two pieces, one about a family story that is DNA related, but the most important item can only be shared with a picture.

I’ll take a better photograph later. But, couldn’t wait to set up my Studio in a Box.

This is a lock of hair from my Great Grandfather Samuel Worthington (1843 – 1897).


QUERY: Worthington Springs, Florida

May 22, 2016

Hello.

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.

Blessings –

Just because they “died young” doesn’t mean there won’t be a record

March 19, 2016

As posted earlier, I followed a “shaky leaf hint’ from an Index record to the actual Image on Family Search using the FHL film number.

What I didn’t mention specifically was that he lived only 9 Months. So, that HINT on an INDEX record lead to this death record and that was in 1874.

This baby would have a younger brother, born in May of 1880 that would have made the 1880 Federal Census.

2016-03-09_191658

The date of the  Census was 19 Jun 1880 and died in October of that year.

I just realized that these to records of a “died young” entries were brothers.

Lesson learned: Look for those records
