  • Note:
    Benjamin Worden is shown as a taxpayer in the Nine Partners/Crum Elbow Precinct in 1778 and 1779 and in the Town of Clinton (probably) 1787 (see Clifford M. Buck, Dutchess County Tax Lists 1718-1787). (In the same source document, there is an entry on page 113 showing a John Wells Brown as a taxpayer on the Worden Place from June 1762 to June 1765 in the Nine Partners/Crum Elbow Precinct.) Benjamin is in Dutchess County in 1780 with wife Sarah Frost and two children ages 3 and 1 (see Bahn Census Data). He is shown on the federal census in Clinton, Dutchess Co. with 2 males under 16 in 1790; in 1800 with 3 males under 10 and 1 between 10-16, also with 1 girl under 20 and 1 between 10-16. In 1810, there is a Benjamin in Greenfield, Saratoga Co. showing 11101-11. A Benjamin owned land in Saratoga County, NY as noted in N.Y. Deeds, Q:11, per NEHGR, Vol. 138, p. 212, 1984. In 1820 there are 3 Benjamins in New York State, one in Middlefield, Otsego Co., one in Halfmoon, Saratoga, Co. and one in Greenfield, Saratoga Co. (with Moses?). In 1820 there is also a Benjamin Woodin in Seneca, Ontario Co. In 1830, there is a Benjamin P. Woodin in Pawling, Dutchess Co., a Benjamin Worden in Johnstown, Montgomery Co. (probably our Benjamin because his Rev. War pension application was filed there in 1834) and another in Middlefield, Otsego Co.
    Benjamin appears as an active member of the Clinton community from 1781 through 1796. He is shown as highway overseer, constable and tax collector in many of these years, according to "Records of Crum Elbow Precinct, Dutches County, NY 1738-1761 Together with Records of Charlotte Precinct 1762-1785, Clinton Precinct 1786-1788 and Town of Clinton 1789-1799," ed. by Franklin D. Roosevelt, part of the Dutchess County Historical Society, Vol. VII, 1940.
    According to "Eighteenth Century Documents of the Nine Partners Patent, Dutchess County N.Y.," comp. by Clifford Buck and William McDermott, ed. by William McDermott: Benjamin Worden witnessed a deed transaction on Apr 1 1786 (10:125) for 300 pounds from David and George Arnold to Jonathan Arnold, bounds Paul Paretse, Teddier Allen, David Johnson, Robert Irwin, Matthew Howard, Samuel Upton. P. 231 #536.
    The same source shows Benjamin on a tax list dated June 12, 1801 having real estate valued at $300. p. 637.
    The same source shows several land transactions involving Isaac and other Frosts, at least one of which shows Frost land bordering Benjamin Worden.
    Benjamin is involved in several legal cases as documented in "Ancient Documents of Dutchess County, NY." These incidents appear in File Nos. 11023, 11364 and 11539.

  • Note: Autosomal DNA evidence has now confirmed that Leonard Worden was the son of Benjamin and Sarah Frost Worden, primarily due to multiple matches between descendants of Cox and Frost and descendants of Benjamin and Sarah Worden. Especially see Gedmatch ID numbers FN19709, F278351, F325174, FB7555, M712835, and F292491.Matches were also found at FamilyTreeDNA.com, Ancestry.com and 23andMe.com. An article describing this atDNA project was published in Wordens Past in the November 2014 edition at www.WordenFamilyAssoc.org.
