This is a complete listing from the Headstone Inscriptions of the Worthington Cemetery in Colchester, CT which was original copied by H.W. House 11/15/1934 as part of the Hale Collection. The cemetery is land locked behind house and barn at 337 McDonald Rd. in Colchester, CT. I went there and could not find one stone. Local historian tells me the cows knocked all stones down. The list I copied from was done in 1934, shows that cemetery stones in 1934 were broken and parts missing and some buried which were dug up in 1934.


Note on Location of Worthington Cemetery:
" I have recently found Worthington cemetery in Colchester CT on McDonald Rd. Your marker on your page is close, but slightly north, and west of it. It is due east of the barn, which has solar panels on the roof, by about 75-100 yards. You can make out the overgrown stone wall, which makes a fairly square area around it. The gentleman that owns the property is very welcoming, and has cleared the area where the cemetery is. It is on a small knoll overlooking a small pond. It is behind the barn, and a small house built in 1791, he owns. The stones have all been knocked over, but he has uncovered them. You can read a few of them. We could not locate Col. Elias Worthington’s marker. I am a direct descendant of his, he was Col. of the 25th militia regiment during the revolutionary war."  This information was submitted by Miles Worthington.
