In Reply to: Capt John Worsham/Mary Wynne by Ida Deal of 811

I am a descendant of John Worsham & Mary Wynne. I have done a lot of research on the Worsham family through the years and I have found documentation that John Worsham who md Mary Wynne is the s/o John Worsham who md Phebe (surname unknown). John Worsham, Sr. was b abt 1653 Henrico Co., VA s/o William & Elizabeth Worsham. Proof that his wife is Phebe is when she gave her consent when John gave 100 acres of land on Appomattox River to his younger brother Charles in Dec 1678 (Henrico Co., VA Court Order Book 1678-93, p 64)
John & Phebe children listed in his will:
1. Elizabeth Worsham b 1676 md 1st) Thomas Ligon 15 Mar 1697 St. John's Parish, Henrico Co., VA md 2nd) Alexander Marshall bef 20 Aug 1706. She d 9 Feb 1743/1744 Chesterfield Co., VA.
2. John Worsham b abt 1679 md Mary Wynne abt 1700 d bef 5 Oct 1753 Chesterfield Co., VA.
3. Frances Worsham b abt 1683 md William Rowlett 12 Oct 1703 Henrico Co., VA.
4. Mary Worsham b abt 1685 md George Robertson
5. William Worsham b abt 1688 md Lucy Hamlin d bef Dec 1748 Henrico Co., VA
6. Daniel Worsham b abt 1690 md Judith Archer & d 17 Aug 1727 Henrico Co., VA
7. Martha Worsham b abt 1694 md Seth Ward & d abt 1734 Henrico Co., VA
8. Anne Worsham b abt 1696 md Thomas Osborne
9. Miss Worsham (some researchers believe her name is Phebe & you state her name is Elizabeth. Do you have a source?) b abt md William Eppes & d before father's will was written.
10. Miss Worsham b abt 1700 md Francis Poythree & d before father's will.

John Worsham, Jr. was b abt 1679 s/o John & Phebe. John & Mary's children are: (who were mentioned in his will dated 11 Oct 1744)
1. John Worsham, III b abt 1701 md Agnes Branch 11 Oct 1726 when a premarital agreement was made. Agnes was the widow of Edward Osborne.
2. Thomas Worsham md Rebecca
3. Phebe Worsham md Moses James & d bef 5 Jun 1767 Chesterfield Co., VA
4. Joshua Worsham md 1st) Martha & 2nd) Mary & d bef 29 Aug 1771 Pittsylvania Co., VA
