Amelia Co, GA m Nancy Whitworth 20 Apr 1794 Amelia
Co, VA. John d 1812 Henry Co, VA. Descendants lived in Giles Co, TN; McLennan Co, TX;
Grayson Co, TX; Lincoln Co, TN.
After John's death, Nancy moved to Giles Co,
TN. According to Kevon Fitzpatrick, 2001, in 1796 James Worsham m Mary Walthall in Amelia
Co with Sur Claiborn Whitwoth, in 1790 Rowland Whitworth m
Martha Walthall (Mary’s sister) Sur Claiborn Whitworth &
1794 Nancy Whitworth m John Worsham in Amelia. Kevon believes Nancy named
her children after her husband, husbands brother, Rowland’s wife, Claiborn may
have been her father & she could be Rowlands sister. This connects James
Worsham, the son of George Worsham to John Worsham who m Nancy Whitworth.
page 666, we have James Worsham b abt 1765 Amelia Co, VA probably m Mary
Walthall. Wit to consent, William Ford and Charles Worsham, Sur. Charles
Worsham. When John Worsham m Nancy Whitworth, Charles Worsham was also

the Briggs Family Bible, Josephine m Edward Briggs 12 Nov 1871 at the home of
the bride’s father G. S. Worsham. Solemnized by Rev. C. A. Harwell on Sunday.
Perhaps the 7 Nov date was the date the license was issued. In the Bible record
Edward b 12 Nov 1849 & died 21 Oct 1911 & she d 24 Jun 1913. According
to her death certificate she was b 12 Nov 1857 d 29 Jun 1913 Brunner, Harris
Co, TX of pellegra. Burial: Glenwood. It names her father as G W Worsham, not
G S Worsham. (John Norwood, 2003) According to most of the records found, his
name is either G. S. Worsham or George S. Worsham; therefore, it is believed the
S. for his middle name is correct. Josephine Worsham picture from Beverly Brown, 2000.
