Years ago someone emailed me they had a Margaret Workman who never married. In her will she made her brother (Michael/Martin?) her beneficiary. However, the brother died before she did so the inheritance went to his children. I believe the children were with their mother in NE Georgia. This was around 1840/50.
It seems there were at least two separate Workman/Wortman families in Rutherford/Cleveland/Lincoln Counties during that time. Any comments on this??
