|George Haworth was the fifth Great Grandfather of my |
Grandmother, Mittie Ethel Hayworth Garrison.
So, we are all thankful to George for coming to America, risking his life on the ship Brittania, and starting a family. He died in January of 1725 (Quaker calendar) and was buried in Buck's County, Pennsylvania. At the time of his death, he and Sarah had had eight children. The children were, in birth order:
1. A son who died in infancy
2. Stephanus Haworth, born in 1713 and married Rachel Beeson
3. Rachel V. Haworth, born in 1715 but died young
4. Absalom Haworth, born in 1716 and married Elizabeth E. Payne
5. John Haworth, born in 1717, married Mary Garner
6. James Haworth born in 1719, married Sarah Wood
7. Mary Haworth born in 1721 married John Michener
8. George Haworth Jr. born in 1724 and married Mary Brown

Three of George and Sarah's sons, Stephanus, Absalom and James, left Pennsylvania and headed south. They landed in Virginia, where they set up their new homes and started their own families. Stephanus later moved to North Carolina.
