Any person apprehending said Worley and confining him in any Gaol in this State, so that he can be brought to Justice shall be liberally rewarded by me.

    Lovick Worley of Halifax N.C. Had a son named Isiah listed among his children at his death. Said children-Diana,Moses,Charity and Isiah were put under gardianship of Isham Davis. An older brother,Gabriel Worley,moved to Tennessee and eventuelly settled in giles Co Tn. Moses also moved to Tn. Have not been able to locate info on the other children. Wonder if this Isiah was son of Lovick who died about 1796. Also found–Isiah Worley Married Susannah Hutchinson in Davidson Co. Tn. on June 22,1814. Would like to correspond on Worley line.
