Dr. Isaac B. Worden was born in Stonington, CT, circa 1765, son of Abial Worden & Rebecca Pardon. The family left Stonington during the Revolutionary War and settled at Mamakating, NY as shown in the 1790 census. In 1824 Isaac and his family moved west to the Toledo, Ohio area and is found in the 1830 census at Monroe, Michigan. At that time the area west of Lake Erie was called Monroe, now present day Lenawee County, Michigan. Toledo is just south of the Michigan-Ohio state line.

Abial Worden - Gilbert S. Bahn in an article in Wordens Past (Page 87) states "...Abial Worden, whose lineage was Abial-Ebenezer-William-Isaac-Dr Samuel-Peter II-Peter I. Abial was born in 1740. In 1772, Ebenezer and his wife resided at Pawling, Dutchess Co, NY. In 1790, Abial was in Ulster Co, at Mamakating, now Sullivan Co, west of the Hudson River and west of Dutchess Co accordingly. One would suppose that Abial simply moved west. However, in DAR Book 83, p. 175, at the New York State Library, there is a statement that Abial Worden served as a private in Capt Peter Mill's Company of Carpenter's Continental Troops in 1777, according to the records of the Record & Pension Office, War Department, Washington." This regiment was made up of companies from Vermont communities. Abial Worden - Gilbert S. Bahn in an article in Wordens Past (Page 587) quotes a letter from Sylvester B. Worden: "Two brothers of them. Grandfather Abial Worden settled in Orange County New York. The other brother settled in New Jersey. When the War of 1776 broke out with England Abial Worden took sides with America & were called Whigs. The other brother took sides with the mother country & were called Tories, consequently were at swords points & never spoke together afterwards, hence we lost sight of his or their whereabouts." Abial Worden - Letter from Sylvester B Worden dated 22 June 1874, Toledo, OH, reprinted in Wordens Past (Pages 108-109): "Grandfather Abial Worden had sons ... their names were Paul, Dr. Isaac B., Asa, Pardon, John and Nathan (or Nathaniel). ... After the War and in 1810, Grandfather Abial Worden moved to Seneca Co., New York and died there, not knowing his age. ... My Father, Dr. Isaac B. Worden moved from New York State to Ohio in 1824 and lived near Toledo, Ohio until his Death in 1856 Aged 91 years. ... His sons names were John, Isaac and Sylvester D. Worden. ... Brother Isaac Died in Wayne County N.Y." Abial Worden - Article by Gilbert S. Bahn in Wordens Past (Page 398-399): William's sons (1698-1790) were Ebenezer, Isaac, Benjamin, William, Nathaniel, and Walter. ... Ebenezer removed to Dutchess Co. ... He had sons Abial, who migrated to central New York ... Abial was the oldest member of the 7th generation whose place is known with certainty (born in 1740), and the early leader in moving Wordens out to the far frontier. .. His sons were Paul, Pardon, Isaac B., Asa, John and Nathan." Annis-Isaac-Abial Worden - Genealogy of David Crippen published in the NYGBR (Vol 88, page 161-163): "I, David Crippen, maried a woman by the name of Elizabeth Worden, daughter of Isaac Worden..." Isaac Worden, my Father in law, was the son of Abial Worden. His brothers names was Paul, Asa, Parden, and John. ... My wife's brothers were Isaac and John. Isaac married a woman by the name of Permelia Knap, daughter of James Knap. John maried a woman by the name of Ellen Rothwell, daughter of Thomas Rothwell. My wife's sisters was Annis, Ellen, and Margaret. Her sister Annis married a man by the name of Jesse Smith.
