    Let’s try this:

    Does anyone have any new information about the ancestry of Samuel Worden of Boston who married Mehitable Hinckley 24 March 1659?

    I am currently assisting in researching a project on the 13th Michigan Infantry. We are compiling a diary of the regiment and currently have over 2000 pages of letters, diaries, newspaper articles and official reports. We want to get as complete a picture as possible of these men. We want to know who they were, where they came from and what happened to them during and after the war. Frederick W Worden was a member of this unit. If you have any information on him that you would be will to share with us, please contact me. We will gladly share any information we might have on him.
    Thank you,
    Marianne Lancaster

    I have been trying to find more info on Margaret Warden [Worden?] who md. Joseph Merrifield in Boston on 27 Jan 1703 as his second wife. She is my 7th great grandmother.

    The marriage record states: Warden, Margaret & Joseph Merryfeeld, Jan. 27, 1703 by Mr. James Allen.

    I have just looked through Boston VRs for the years before her possible birth and long after, but nothing found. It has been found on internet (like Ancestral File which is possibly influencing us all) that she was possibly the d/o of Dr. Samuel Worden of Boston. But in looking at the records just now I find so little on Worden (nothing on Warden) and it was:
    (1680 – 1699)
    TOWN RECORDS: (nothing in church records)
    1686: Mary of Samuel & Mehetable Worden born May 4 (p. 171)
    1689: Eliza of Samuel & Eliza. Worden born Feb. 19 ( p. 186)
    1691: Samuel Worden dyed Janry 12 (p. 199)
    1692: Eliza of Samuel & Mehitabel Worden dyed May 18 (p. 204)

    Any ideas?

    I have started a family tree for my granddaughters. My son (their father) is a descendant of John Wesley Worden via John Salter, Milton May and Earl (son of Druzilla and Milton). I am going to have him do the DNA testing soon but right now I am having an issue. Earl and Lila had a son, Gale Walter Worden, who was born in 1941, more than likely in Klamath Falls, Oregon and died in 1967. He was in the US Navy and is buried in Beeville, Texas. The only thing I can find on him is the SS death index record. It’s like he never existed. I am hoping someone out there can help and I hope it is ok for me to ask for help on this site but I don’t know where to go next. We can’t even find Lila’s last name. Thank you very much!
