About Claborne B. Worsham

Claborne Worsham marries Sidney Reden Ray Drake

Sidney Reden Ray Drake came to Texas following the death of her husband, James Charles Drake. She lived with her parents and her three children, Charles Wesley, Mary Penina and William Henry Drake, for a while. She met Claborne Worsham. They married on September 17, 1873 in Johnson County, Texas. His nickname was Dick. He would go to Austin, Texas a lot for three days gambling and drinking. He wasn't good to Sidney and one time when he left for Austin, the neighbors carried her and her children to Hillsboro, Texas. Claborne died shortly thereafter when he was found dead in the bed of his truck. His first wife was Eleanor Bryan. They had three children, James Neill, Edward L. and Samuel Charles Worsham. I have also found a daughter, Margaret, born in June 1843 in the 1880 Census at I also found Eleanor Worsham, mother-in-law, living with a Hawkins family in 1870. She was 63 years old. Records had stated she died in 1845, but this was incorrect.
