Hi, all, I'm also part of this Worthington / Chapman family. I vividly remember as a child in the 1950s visiting Auntie Pearl and Uncle Charlie. My grandmother was Ethel Mae Chapman, Pearl's sister, who married Stanley E. Howard. Ethel died in 1923 and Pearl stepped in to help raise Ethel's two children, Esther and Marshall Howard. My mother was Esther Howard Palmer. I don't have much on the Worthington ancestry but have loads on the Chapmans. Quite a few years ago my mother and I met Pearl's son Harvey Worthington to visit Pearl and Charlie's cemetery in West Stafford. Would love to connect with any or all of you. P.S. If someone can remember the name of their second dog besides Bozo, I've been wracking my brain trying to remember. How funny :) Attached is Pearl and Charlie's wedding photo. I also have the announcement of their marriage in the newspaper.
