Today in Family History - 14 Dec

My 4th great-grandmother Rebecca B. Pierce (Erickson line) died on this day in 1848 in Bradford County, Pennsylvania [1]. She was buried at Ashland Cemetery in Wellsburg, Chemung, New York [1].

Another event today could be related to our family history. It is believed that a man named John Pleasant Worsham (Baldwin line) is likely my 5th great-grandfather. He was born on this day in1764 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia [2]. Unfortunately, no proof of parentage to my 4th great-grandfather Jeremiah Worsham (1788-1863) has been found.
