Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 28, 1811
Guilford County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 5, 1900
Randolph County
North Carolina, USA

1880 US Federal Census lists his occupation as a physician; residing in Asheboro, NC.

John Milton Worth was the younger brother of Jonathan Worth, who served as the state's Treasurer and Governor during the 1860s. John Worth served several terms in the North Carolina Senate, representing Moore and Montgomery Counties in the 1840s.

In 1870, he was elected state Senator from Randolph County. In November 1876, Worth was elected by the people to a 4-year term as Treasurer. When incumbent David Jenkins resigned before the end of his term, Gov. Curtis H. Brogden named Worth to fill the post a few months early. Worth was reelected in 1880, serving just over 4 more years.

After leaving public service, Worth became president of the Bank of Randolph and of the Southern Stock Mutual Fire Insurance Company. His Worth Manufacturing Company operated cotton mills in Randolph County, not far from where the North Carolina Zoological Park is located today. By the time of his death in 1900 at age 90, he had become 1 of the State's wealthiest citizens.
