Pierce, p 635, 1837, Wm Worsham of Prince Edward Co, VA Court satisfied that the pensioner died leaving no widow but children: William H. Worsham of GA. William H. Worsham md 1st) Elizabeth Price, d/o Jacob, 27 Dec 1808 Prince Edward Co., VA. William H. Worsham md. 2nd) Sarah Wells or Walls, 30 Jun 1822 Jackson Co, GA. (37000 Early GA Mrgs) Sarah b. abt abt. 1789 SC. They are in the 1830 Gwinnett Co, GA cens, Wm. H. Worsham, 2m 10-15, 1m 40-50; 2 f <5, 1f 30-40, 1f 40-50. There was a William Worsham from Monroe Co., GA who was a fortunate drawer of land in the 1832 Cherokee land lottery located in Cass Co., GA. Family researcher, Patricia Worsham, believes that the William Worsham who made that draw never claimed the land and it went back to the state. However, this connection ties Monroe Co., GA to Cass Co., GA through William Worsham. Also, Cass Co., GA changed it’s name to Bartow Co. in 1861 & Bartow Co. adjoins Floyd Co. In the Baldwin Co., GA Union Recorder newspaper clippings page 62 by Tod Evans, Vol III, 1837-1839 published by Evans in Savannah, GA, 1994, there was a letter remaining at the Post Office in Forsyth, Monroe Co., GA on 1st Jul 1837 for William Worsham. There might be a connection to the John Worsham who was in the list of letters remaining in the Post Office at Forsyth, Monroe Co., GA on 1 Oct 1835, pg 237 of the Union Recorder newspaper clippings. In the 1840 Forsyth Co, GA Cens. (Gwinnett Co, GA borders Forsyth Co. & Cherokee Co. separates Forsyth and Cass Co.) is W. H. Worsham, p. 369, 3 m < 5, 1m 50-60; 1f < 5, 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15 & 1f 40-50. In addition, William Worsham, is in the 1840 Cass Co., GA census with 10 children. William Worsham b abt 1786 VA & Sarah b abt 1799 SC are in the 1850 Co., Cass Co., GA census, p 166, age 64, house carpenter. The family is discussed in the Pope Co., AR, Vol 2, Pope Historical Assoc., 1981, Joster's Pub., Topeka, KS. Children: (Patricia Worsham & Jerry H. Adams)
William H. & Elizabeth probably had a son (see page 783):

William & Sarah children:
18.104.22.168.2.2B.1. Sarah Worsham b abt 1829 of Cass Co., GA. (21-1850) Miss. Sarah Worsham md. W. T. Wilson 20 Apr 1879 Galla Rock, Pope Co., AR. (Galla Rock, Pope Co., AR Marriages, Bk E, p 293) She is age 35 & J. T. is age 40. There is connection between this Wilson family and the Worshams. They were neighbors in the GA Census records in 1850 and 1860. They apparently migrated together from Cass Co., GA to Pope Co., AR. Two members of the Wilson family affirmed John E. Worsham's service in the 60th GA in his AR Confederate Pension Application, saying that they had known him for 45 years and knew of his service. This Wilson family was from SC. In the 1880 Galla Rock, Pope, AR cens, is John T. Wilson, age 53, & wife Sarah, age 45 GA. Her father was b. VA & mother b. GA.
22.214.171.124.2.2B.2. John Elbert Worsham b 13 Jan 1832 of Cass Co., GA. (18-1850) He is probably in the 1860 Crawford Co., GA cens, living with Wm. Burgy, as John Worsham age 27 SC, p896. He md Amanda Melvina Tanner abt 1869 probably in Bartow Co., GA. Melvina b Jan 1852 GA. Another date of birth is 15 Feb 1855. (Pat Worsham, 1997) Her age varies with every census, her tombstone, and her death certificate. They probably moved to Pope Co. between 1871 and 1875. Shirley Tanner McDonald, 1999, wrote: "My Great Grandfather was Alen Tanner and in the 1870 Bartow Co., GA cens. His first wife was Rachel Loudermilk. He was a RR worker according to the cens. He moved to Wood Co. TX. possibly with the RR. Sometime in the 1880's Rachel passed away and he came to AR where a lot of his family had moved from GA. He had a sister, Amanda Melvina Tanner Worsham." It was said that John built three houses upon arrival in Galla Rock. He is age 42 in the 1880 Galla Rock, Pope Co., AR Census. They are in the 1900 Burnett, Pope Co., AR cens. as John E. b. Jan 1833 & Viney b. Jan 1852. Picture from Bertrand R. Worsham, 1981
The name Elbert is in the Pope Co. History book by Bertrand. They were Methodist. Patricia Worsham believed this Tanner line was from Haralson Co., GA. Two of Melvina's brothers, Allen and Richard also migrated to Pope Co. Richard was a hemophiliac and Melvina was a carrier. Patricia Worsham suspects that some of the male Worsham children may have died young from this disease.
John E Worsham, claimed residence in Bartow Co., enlisted 25 April 1862, Private, served Georgia Enlisted H Co. 60th Inf Reg. GA, (Roster of Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865). John E. Worsham’s AR Confederate Pension Application places him with the Cass Co. Confederate group. AR Conf. Veterans & widows pension application lists John Elbert Worsham, widow Melvina, Co H 60 regiment GA I, 1862-65, app. 26 Aug 1901 in Pope Co, AR; deceased. 7/25/08. John E's AR Confederate Pension Application places him with the Cass Co. Confederate group. John was wounded by a shot in the left side and part of a tree fell on his right arm. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Monocacy, MD. He was later send to Point Lookout POW camp and eventually was exchanged.
He d 26 Jun 1908, Pope, AR & she d 24 Sep 1921 Pope Co., AR. John & Melvina are bur in Bell's Chapel cemetery Pope Co., AR with their infant son Richard. The original tombstone for John E. shows "Born in Georgia." It has since been replaced. This family is in Pope Co., AR, vol. 2, Pope Historical Ass, 1981, Joster's Pub, Topeka, KS.
126.96.36.199.2.2B.2.2. John Allen Worsham b Dec 1875 of Pope Co., AR md 1st) Helen Kelley 5 Nov 1899 Conway Co., AR. It was an easier trip to Conway Co. Courthouse than to the Pope Co. Courthouse. In Bertrand's article, his middle name is Archer but on the social security application for his son Carl Lester Worsham, his name is Allen. Allen Tanner was Melvina's brother and that may be where the name Allen came from. He is listed as a carpenter in the 1900 census. Helen b 8 Sep 1880 & d 24 Dec 1951 of Pope, AR. He md 2nd) Julia Hillis. John d 1952 North Little Rock, AR & bur there. He was md several times but only the marriage to Helen yielded children. John was a hemophiliac which he inherited from his mother Melvina, a carrier. Since this is a sex-linked (X chromosome) trait, his sons did not inherit the disease, but his daughter Myrtle was a carrier. Both of her sons were hemophiliacs.
188.8.131.52.2.2B.2.6. Infant Worsham dates unknown. Melvina states in the 1910 census that she had 6 children, 2 living.
184.108.40.206.2.2B.3. Robert Archer Worsham b abt 1835 of Cass Co., GA. (15-1850) He md Sarah Turner 29 Dec 1858 of Wilkinson, GA d/o Ben Turner. (Joy Hight, 1998) Robert, age 25 GA, is in the 1860 Cartersville, Cass Co. census as a laborer and md. in the last year with one sister, S. age 17 (probably wife) and two brothers, J. 9 mos. and J. 27 yrs, living in dwelling #23A.

When Va. ceded her western lands to the new United States, she did so with a promise that all of the bounty lands in VA veterans would be honored. In 1852 there were still 800 claims, the Veteran was long dead, and most of his children, many of these show descent into the 4th and 5th generations.
