Notes Concerning Nicholas Worthington

Notes Concerning Nicholas Worthington and certain of his descendants, Hatfield, MA.
Self-published in Paris, 1888, by Nicholas-Lewis Worthingon, this 54 page booklet has the descendants of Nicholas Worthington (originally of England who died in Hatfield about 1683). Many of his descendants lived their life in Agawam and elsewhere, including one who became a member of the French Legion of Honor. Of general interest is excerpts from the 1837 diary of Amos Worthington who, along with his wife, took a trip to visit family in Ohio from Springfield, MA. Interesting description of travel upon inland waterways -- both canals and rivers.
