A George W. Gawf is listed as a head of household in the 1880 US census of Sharp Co AR (page 111B), age 62 and born in TN.Other Gawf surnames shown in this household are Polly (61 TN) and George W. (20 AR).
I'm trying to find if there is a Gawf/Goff family connection between this George W. Gawf and other Goffs who lived in Sharp Co. AR during this same period, including Jesse Caton Goff.I'm particularly interested in learning the identity of the parents of George W. Gawf/Goff to see if I can make a connection with my Goff ancestors who lived in Warren Co TN at the time of George W.'s birth in TN.
In the 1880 census record of Sharp Co AR for Jesse Caton Goff (page 103A), Jesse is listed as being age 31, born in TN and the head of the household consisting of wife Bettie (23 AR), son John H. (2 AR) and daughter Mary J. (1 AR); brother Sampson (19 AR); and sisters Maranda (32 TN) and Mary E. (20 AR).
I would appreciate any leads or information about either of these Gawf/Goff families.
