I am in the process of building this page about famous Americans who in some way are related to, or carry the name Worthington,I would at this point like to thank David Reed from Washington DC who as been a great help in compiling

John Alderson born 10th April 1916 Horden,County Durham died California USA 2006.

I remember my Aunt Alice Cain (Worthington) who lived at Wheatley Hill,County Durham telling me, that the person I was watching, in "Boots & Saddles" on her television was our relation, I never thought anymore about it until Julie Worthington emailed me to say, John Alderson's daughter was visiting the UK, Julie was not sure of the connection and I told her about what my Aunt Alice said when I was younger, and now we have the proof.
