    • I am trying to locate the parents of Sarah A Goff who was born in 1818 in Seneca county NY. She married Charles Pleasants in Waterloo in 1840 and left the county sometime in the early 1850's. There are a number of Goff families in the area during this time period but I can not find a match.
    •  I am looking for more information on William Goff b 1814/1815 Ga. son of Lewis Goff b1786 NC and Nancy.  My William Goff married Mary Jane Raiford Apr 21 1840 in Mobile Co, Al.  He is in the Mobile Al, 1850 census with Jane and their 4 sons. In Mobile, Al 1860 census William is gone and Jane is shown with the 4 boys, but there is another William Goff b 1815 Al in this census with a wife Martha-age 36 b. MS,  John W- age 10 b.MS, Elizabeth- age 8 b. MS, Mary-age 7 b. MS, Harriet-age 5 b.MS.  I cannot find either William in 1870.  Several years ago I started tracing the lines of Lewis and Nancy's other children and in the 1880 Jackson Co, MS Census I find, William Goff b. 1814 Ga, Isaac N Goff b.1864 MS, and Louis Goff b.1860 MS living with L.R. Roberts (Lyman Randall Roberts nephew of William).  The two boys in the  1880 census are Isaac Newton Goff  and Louis Lyman Goff.   In searching for a connection,  I have found that Isaac Newton Goff, Louis Lyman Goff, Theodore "Bick" Victor Goff, and P Evelina Goff Havens are brothers and sister. Evelina Goff Havens death certificate lists he parents as William Goff and Martha Canty.  If ANYONE is researching any of the 3 groups listed for William b 1814/1815 Ga, Al, MS I would LOVE to share and discuss this line with you. My email address is Dixie-darlin@hotmail.com. I have a public tree on Ancestry - GOFF/VAUGHN if you would care to compare notes. Thank You Cindy Walter
    • Looking for more information on Patty Hudson who married Abner Goff in Clarendon, Rutland, VT on 4 June, 1800.    They moved to Licking County, Ohio in 1813.  Abner died in 1857.   Patty was living in Licking County at the time of the 1870 census but I have no more information after that time.   I believe that Patty was born in Northboro, Massachusetts to Elijah Hudson and Elizabeth Goodenow on 9 Nov 1782.
  • A Note About Logins and Passwords

    While we have many new features to offer GGFA members, the applications we are using (given our limited budget) each require their own login (user name and password).   The first time a Member uses this site (GGFA Community) or GGFA Genealogy (family trees) you will need to make sure that you are registered.  You can use the same password for both (and also the main GGFA web site).  You will not be able to access all the features of the sites until you complete this process.
