Mary Ellen Higbee, was Henry C. Worthingtons sister, and at one time I am told that their brother Howard H. Worthington lived there as well for a time. It seems that after mary Ellen died, Henry C. continued to live with one of his neices.I never knew what my father-in-law knew about why Henry C. Worthington left the family in Geneseo, Henry County, Il. All that I know about his father Edwin Worthington, after leaving Henry Co., Il. He ended up in either Ok. or Ks. My father-n-law Ralph was born in Ks. For a while, Palph and his parents lived with his oldest sister in Il. for a while. And I can't finds out anything about Ralph's mother either, except that her name was Martha MCCune. That amy have been the name of her first husband. Eva , his sister must have been a McCune, because she was the oldest,but also I think hisa favorite. He never talked about her bveing only a half sister, she only talked about his sister. She had a small diner here in Omaha, and he worked there before he met my mother-in-law.
