Ellen came with her family from Ohio in 1852. They took a ship to Panama, crossed the Isthmus of Panama by mule and canoe, and then took a ship up the Pacific coast to San Francisco.

William Worthington and Ellen were married in 1861.

Ellen’s father, Elijah Kirkham Jenner, born around 1812, was a dentist and talented gunsmith in San Francisco.
