- Worthy and Harriett were living in Cass County, Minnesota as of the 1900 and 1910 census. At the time of the 1900 census, he was listed as William, perhaps in error. His occupation was shown as railroad laborer. His date of birth, perhaps also in error, was shown as October 1847. The 1900 census showed that Worthy and Harriett had been married 16 years (ca 1884). Harriet was listed as the mother of 11 children, 7 of whom were still living. The six children listed at home at the time of the 1900 census were William, Claricy, Lydia, Viola, Harry and Frederick. Charles ASHLAND and Charley LEAKE were living in their home as boarders. William was shown as a railroad laborer.
The 1910 census shows that both were married once, and had been married 37 years (which would push the marriage date back to ca 1873). The census further shows that Harriett was the mother of 12 children, 7 of whom were still living. Of the six children listed at home in 1900, only Harry was still at home. Perhaps Frederick, who should still have been living at home at age 10, had died. An additional son, 7 year old Henry, was listed as well.
According to Jake Schopf, they lived in Everett, Washington for a few years and then moved to Butte County, California.
Kristine Hammond also lists them as the parents of Noel, Ellen, Emma and Sybil. As none of these children are on either the 1900 or 1910 census, perhaps they were among the five children who died.
