Facts and Events
AMOS WORDEN, the son of Isaac Worden and Rebekah , was born about 1695, probably in Stonington, Connecticut. He was a cordwainer (a leather worker) in Newport, Rhode Island in 1738 when he deeded his share of his father's estate to his brother William. Gilbert S. Bahn, writes (in Worden's Past), "If one reviews the record of the estates of the sons of (Dr.) Samuel Worden, one finds a single candidate in the line of Peter Worden of Yarmouth who may account for the first Wordens to appear near Pawling in Dutchess County, New York. This is Isaac's son Amos, who left no record concerning residence at Newport, Rhode Island after 1738, when, at Stonington, he deeded to his brother William his share of his father's lands. Amos was a cordwainer; Nathaniel of Dutchess County, New York was a cordwainer when he arrived there. I have already suggested that Thomas of Dutchess County was a son of Isaac's son Amos." Bahn also suggests that Thomas, Amos, Isaac, and Daniel were brothers. All four were on tax rolls around Pawling in the 1750s and 1760s.
