I've been tracing my mother's line back for a class project and traced it back to a Joseph Gould, who served as a spy for Gen. George Washington. I was then able to trace to his father, John Gould III, his grandfather John Gould Jr., and then his great grandfather, John Gould Sr. who came to America from England. The only information I have of John Sr. though is he was born Feb. 21, 1646. Other than that, the only other information I have is a list of Joseph's ancestors:
JOHN III 318, JOHN Jr. 217, JOHNIII THE IMMIGRANT16, JOHN (ESQ) (FATHER OF IMMIGRANTS)15, JOHN (THE YOUNGER OF UPWAY)14, JOHN (THE ELDER OF DORCHESTER)13, JOHN (OF STAVERTON)12, THOMAS PRESTON11, JOHN (OF COOME)10, THOMAS9, ROBERT8, JOHN (GOLD)7, ROBERT (GOLD)6, JOHN (GOLD)5, JOHN (GOLD)4, ELIAS (GOLD)3, JOHN (GOLD) GOULD OF2 SEABOROUGH, JOHN THE CRUSADER
Are these the same names you have as well? I noticed there is a Thomas in this list as well and a Robert.
My mother also wishes me to inform you that I am only using her name on this site to protect my dad's privacy. She never took his last name when they married.
