History of Bucks County, Pa Volume 3 by William H. Davis
Names and Page # Index


Lewis WORTHINGTON, the father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Buckingham township, Bucks county, in 1820, and is a descendant of the family of that name who have been residents of Buckingham for several generations, their earliest ancestors having originally settled in Byberry, Philadelphia county, from whence, the immediate progenitors of the Buckingham family, removed to Buckingham about the middle of the eighteenth century. Lewis WORTHINGTON was reared to the life of a farmer, and always followed that vocation. In the year 1854 he purchased of a relative, Israel WORTHINGTON, the farm in Doylestown township where the subject of this sketch now resides, and containing eighty-two acres, and resided thereon until his death in 1895. He married Tacy DUDBRIDGE, daughter of William DUDBRIDGE, of Warwick township, and they were the parents of two children: Theresa, wife of Frank KELLER, of Doylestown: and Amos S.

Amos S. WORTHINGTON was born in Doylestown township, August 19, 1855. He was reared on the farm where he still resides, and acquired his education at the public schools. At the death of his father he continued to manage the farm, and a year later purchased his sister’s interest therein, and takes great pride in making it one of the most productive and attractive farms in the neighborhood.
