Peter Wortman is the earliest ancestor I know of.His children were at one time in Rowan County, NC so I assume they all lived there for a time.I haven't doen research for awhile on this line as i have been concentrating on another.
In my Pruitt research in Rutherford county, North Carolina, there were some Workman, Wortman and Worsham references in th eindex.I haven't checked them yet.Here are some names form the index though:Workman: Ambrose Amos Buren Carol Chris Connie Dave Don Ellen hattie Iva J.D. Joe John Lemar Lester Linda Madge Mavis Sarah Wendy Zula
Worsham: Dale Ervin Faye
Wortman: Charlie A. Christopher Donald John Wendy
If any of those names look familiar, let me know. This book is also online.
