I am descended from Charles Dockum b. Aug. 23, 1804 and Marcia (not Maria, as is frequently recorded) Castle b. Nov. 30 1811. They were married in Burlington VT on February 17, 1828. Charles died on January 11, 1893 in New Haven, CT. Marcia died on January 27, 1887.
Their daughter, Hannah M. Dockum b. May 3, 1838 married Albert G. Worden b. December 17, 1834. They were married on December 30, 1858. Albert died March 13, 1909. Hannah died May 20, 1907.
They had three children, Frankie E. Worden b. January 19, 1861, Nellie E. Worden b. January 1, 1864 and Alice Worden b. 1867.
Nellie was my GGgrandmother. She married John C. Williams b. May 17, 1861 in New York. They married on April 22, 1891 in Denver Colorado. I'm not sure why they were out there. John had been married before, to a Clara Phelps. He had two children with Clara. Jere and Curtis P. Williams. After marrying Nellie, three more children were born. Alice D. Williams b. February 2, 1892. Albert Worden Williams B. December 31, 1893 and Margaret Elizabeth Williams b. July 4, 1895.
Margaret married Arthur Yale Mallory who was born in 1893 in New Haven Connecticut. They were married on Nov. 23, 1917. They had two children, they have a living son, Arthur, and my grandfather, Curtis Quilter Mallory, who was born July 12, 1920 and died September 25, 1990.
All of my information comes from Nellie Worden's bible. It was passed down to me via my Grandfather, Curtis. I have some photo's in the bible of various family members, including Albert and Hannah Dockum Worden and Marcia Castle and Charles Dockum. I would be happy to scan and send these pictures to anyone interested. I am so excited to see that someone was working on this line. I hadn't had any luck bringing it back prior to Charles Dockum.
Any information that anyone has on anyone prior to Charles Dockum and Marcia (sometimes called Maria) Castle Dockum would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much...hope this information helps someone. Doreen DorHausler@comcast.net
