I am trying to gather further information on Alanson F. WORDEN, b. Dec 1821 in Vermont, and his family (ancestors and descendants).

According to Heverly’s Pioneers and Patriot Families of Bradford Co., PA, Sylvia WHITE, d/o Caleb WHITE and Chloe HAMILTON m. Alanson F. WORDEN. Caleb WHITE was a veteran of the Revolution. Caleb WHITE and Chloe HAMILTON WHITE are interred in the Granville Centre Cemetery, Granville Twp., Bradford Co., PA. Caleb served his country in Connecticut, but his Revolutionary War Record does indicate that his parents moved to Vermont during the war years. Several of his children claim in subsequent census records that they were born in Vermont. However, this Sylvia WHITE seems too old to have married the following Alanson F. WORDEN. Maybe they could be the parents of this Alanson F. WORDEN?

In the 1850 Federal Census for LeRoy Twp., Bradford Co. PA, there is an A. F. WORDEN, male, age 28, farmer, b. VT; Sylva WORDEN, female, age 20, b. PA; Daniel WORDEN, male, age 2, b. PA.

If anyone knows, was Sylvia/Sylva WORDEN actually the daughter of Caleb WHITE and Chloe HAMILTON WHITE? Where did she die? Where is she interred?

Who were the parents of Alanson F. WORDEN? Where in VT was Alanson born? Where did he die? He died sometime between 1900 and 1910. Where is he interred?

Lavina/Lovina J. MILLER WORDEN, who were her parents, first husband, and children? Where was she born? Where did she die?

Lizzie BENNETT was Elizabeth B. BENNETT, d/o John E. BENNETT and Violetta JONES. Did Lizzie and Daniel WORDEN have any children? If so, what were their names? Did she remarry? If so, to whom, etc. Where is she interred?

Was Mary E. WORDEN GILKEY the daughter of Alanson and Sylva WORDEN, or the daughter of Daniel WORDEN and his first wife? Who was Daniel WORDEN’S first wife?

Who did Alta F. GILKEY, Florence P. GILKEY, and Glennie M. GILKEY marry?

I am a descendant of Caleb and Chloe HAMILTON WHITE, and I would like to add the WORDEN and GILKEY family information to my genealogy if they are indeed descendants of Caleb and Chloe HAMILTON WHITE.
