Thank you for visiting our site. I am co-author of the book titled Worsham and Washam Family History. I am also the web master for the web site of the same name.
One of the Hall's you found in the index appears to be connected. On page 326 is the following:

The addenda to our book, may have a little more on family relatives. It can be found at (scroll down to page 326):http://www.geocities.com/worsham-washam/Page319.htm
You mentioned that Israel Worsham was appointed guardian to Robert and John Oliver in 1861. Do you have the source of this and any idea if they are related?
Hope this helps,
