    • We meet again. I have dna posts in another Forum"Goff DNA Project Discussions". When I key "Goff" on FF, I have 11 matches, which includes you.When I key "Williams" I have 170 matchs and you show up on page 2, as a match. If you think this is clutter, let me know and I will remove it from your post. Bill Goff 
    • Hello. I am currently researching my Goff roots which have been in White county, TN since the early 1800s. After a ton of paper trail research and DNA research believe I am apart of the New Kent, VA Goff family group.   I also believe my Goff line is, somehow, related through Isham Goff (1811-1875) b. SC d. AR and/or Ambrose Goff (1766-1854) b. Bedford, VA d. TN   Are there any members in this group that are related to either of these lines? Would anyone happen to have any gedmatch kit numbers I could compare to my list of Goff cousins? Or has anyone done testing through ancestry that have public trees I could research? Or is anyone who is a descendant has done YDNA testing? I would love to exchange information.   My Goff line, I believe, is through a female Goff who passed the Goff name down to her sons.   Feel free to send me an email at mwilliams2113@gmail.com or comment here. I am hoping with some help I can break through this brick wall of mine.   Thank you in advance! I appreciate your help.
    • 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
