I am amazed at the abundance of information compiled on the Worsham-Washam family. My husband's Worsham family originated from Paris (Henry County), Tennessee by way of Virginia. My husbands family had always indicated that they were the slaves of two sisters from Virginia. The furthest they have gone back is to their great grandfather "Ole" Gloster Worsham who was born approximately 1826 in Paris, TN. He had 4 or 5 sons and had been married twice. He and his sons migrated to Woodruff County, Arkansas in the latter 1880's from information passed down through the family. We are also trying to compile information on this part of the family tree as well, but to no avail. However, if there is any one who could help with the information concerning the Worshams from slavery, it would be very much appreciated. Again, thank you for inviting me to view your family history.
