From what I have found my ancestors in this family line came out of Washington Co.,AR. However, Sterling C. Gold and wife Cynthia Hainey-Gold both died after 1860 in TN. Their daughter Sarah Sally Wilson Gold moved to Washington Co,AR after her marriage to John W. England.
I still have found that Sterling C. Gold was born in Mecklinburgh Co, NCwhich is supposedly near the NC,SC state border. I am aware there was a county in VA with same name. Do you have a copy of his birth record or any other document that you can download to me with this information?
