  William Worsham, born ca 1619 in England. He sailed to the Colonies and settled in Virginia. He had a Land Patent for 400 acres of land with his brother George, which was dated on 15 February 1652 in Henrico Co., Virginia.  William married Elizabeth _____ (Possibly Littlebury/Littleberry). Elizabeth was born ca 1623 in Henrico Co., Virginia. William was a well respected man. He was at one time a County Commissioner in Charles City Co., Virginia. William died ca 1660/61 in Henrico Co., Virginia, leaving his wife a widow.  (Source: My Worsham Lineage here.)
They had 5 children, William, Elizabeth, John, Mary and Charles.
After his death his widow married again, and had more children by her husband, Eppes.  She left a will with details to both the Worsham and the Eppes children.

He is my 10th great grandfather on my father, George Elmore Rogers' tree.

Today's Quote:



Stop running from the ferocity of your own Being...
Burn off all your own games to that in you which is
Pure Intensity...
When you meet the very Core of your Being
become completely loyal to the deepest passion in you
and allow no more waste of time - find that devotion
to Reality [Truth] within yourself...

  1. amazing you know all your history; I forgot to tell you that when we were driving on the beach there were hundreds of monarch butterflies everywhere; they must be migrating by here.
