1850 Federal Census Hamilton Gray was living with them in Lawrence County, MO, and next door was Nancy Wormington age 75. They are buried at New Site, near Monett, MO, Barry County, MO.

Asa Wormington was located on Township 26, Range 28, Sections 31 and 36 were open for entry on February 8, 1843. Asa H. Wormington entered land on Section 36, Feb 6, 1843 and Jonathan H. Wormington's entry was on August 12, 1844. [Ref: Goodspeed, page 572, pub. 1888]

In 1860 and 1861 Asa Wormington was listed in Barry Co., MO, with 1 slave value $400.00.

Asa Wormington was a blacksmith. He was commissioned to construct a saw for a lumber mill that was being built on Center Creek just upstream from Sarcoxie, Missouri. It's recorded that in 1837 Asa hired a man to travel to Boonville, MO, to get the necessary steel blank, which had been sent up the river.

Indian Chief Sarcoxie, chief of the Delaware
(Lenape), at that time and for whom the town of Sarcoxie was later named, sent an Indian man to accompany the "pale face" on the mission. The two were gone about two months but did finally return to Barry County with the steel. It was eight inches wide, four feet long and a quarter inch in thickness. From it Asa Wormington made the saw from which the first lumber in southwest Missouri was produced.

Thomas Benton Wormington born 1842 and died 1914, was a son of the Asa Womington, and was a blacksmith. He later repaired the saw, and it was said that he welded it so neatly that the break could hardly be seen at all. About 1890 or so, the sawmill was sold and at that time the new owner installed a circular saw driven by a turbine water wheel. After many years of usage, the wheel was broken and was no longer useable.

The owner, facing a shut down due to the lack an ability to repair it so he contacted Benton Wormington. At that time Benton was getting old and was an old man.  Benton was styled as "Uncle Bent" and was lovingly referred to as such. They said that through the efforts of six men the wheel was loaded and hauled to Sarcoxie where Uncle Benton lived. In about five days "Uncle Bent" repaired. The bill for his work was $20.00 and they said that the new owner was so overjoyed by the excellent work that "Uncle Bent" had done that he gave him $50. 00 instead of the $20.00 he'd asked told him it would be.

John Wesley Wormington of Barry County was born 1844, died in 1911. He was a brother to Thomas Benton Wormington, and he was also said to have been a skilled blacksmith. His shop was located three miles east of Ritchley, MO, on the East Side of Wormington Branch in the northwest quarter of Section 29. He was widely acclaimed for the high quality rifles that he manufactured in his shop.
