Worth and her husband Jesse Lewellen lived in the Shannandale community not far from John C. Worth and his wife Matilda (Horn). [U. S. Census of Indiana, 1880, Montgomery Co., Shannandale, enumerated June 11, 1880, by F. H. Marshall, p. 16, e. d. 102, John Worth, wife Matilda, dwelling 152, family 153; Jesse Lewellen, wife Elizabeth, dwelling 158, family 159.] [State of Indiana, Tippecanoe Co., Marriages, John Worth and Matilda Horn, May 14, 1866, Book C-11, p. 202.]
Jesse
Lewellen and Elizabeth Worth Lewellen had a male child who was born March 26, 1888. [State of Indiana, Montgomery Co., Births, 1882 to 1920, Book H-4, p. 141, male child of Jesse Lewellen and Elizabeth Worth, born March 26, 1888.]
Lucy
Jane Harmison, the widow of Chesterfield Worth, married again on June 9, 1896, in Terre Haute, Indiana. Lucy married Jesse Lewellen, the widower of Elizabeth Worth, who was the sister of Chesterfield. Elizabeth Worth Lewellen apparently died sometime between March 26, 1888, and June 9, 1896.
5) Chesterfield Worth and his wife, Lucy Jane Harmison, had named their first two children after Jesse Lewellen and Elizabeth Worth Lewellen. [U. S. Census of Illinois, 1880, Vermilion Co., Oakwood Township, e. d. 219, sheet 41, dwelling 298, family 299, enumerated June 28, 1880, by Magruder W. named John C. Worth. [U.S. Indiana Census for 1860, Hendricks County, Middle Township, John C. Worth age 15, male, Chester F. D. Worth age 10.]
We
know from a letter written by John Worth, at New Ross, Indiana to Hiram C. Worth of Greensboro, NC, that John Worth had a son named John Worth who visited with Hiram C. Worth at his home in Greensboro, NC, “in the time of the war”. [Letter from John Worth (New Ross, Indiana) to Hiram C. Worth (Greensboro, North Carolina), 1 February 1886. Original letter at Hege Library, Friends Historical Collection, Guilford College, Greensboro, NC.]
The
death certificate of John C. Worth gives his date of birth as May 8, 1845, lists his father as John Worth and that he was buried at Clark’s Hill Cemetery. His tombstone at Clark’s Hill includes an inscription indicating he served in the 120th Indiana Infantry.
According
to his military records, John C. Worth’s unit, the 120th Indiana, was at Greensboro, NC, sometime between May 1865 and August 22, 1865. He probably visited with Hiram C. Worth during this time. [National Archives, Civil War Pension Records, John C. Worth, 120th Indiana Infantry, Private, Company C, soldier's certificate #368-228, Can #7 730, Bundle #22, wife Rebecca J. Worth, number 497,241 appears on the cover of his folder, also #1,567,964. File contains a copy of his Honorable Discharge, a copy of his Death Certificate, and a copy of the Death Certificate for Matilda (Horn) Worth, his first wife.]
John
C. Worth married Mary A. Hamm on or about February 4, 1920. The marriage certificate lists his father as John Worth and his mother as Julia Ann Hiatt. [Julia Ann Drysdale, as listed on the marriage license to John Worth, the father of John C. and Chesterfield, probably was at one time Julia Ann Hiatt.]
The evidence strongly supports the conclusion that John C. Worth and Chesterfield Worth were brothers and the sons of John Worth.

born: 27 January 1814, Kentucky, USA
died:
10 April 1856, Shelby County, Indiana, USA
