I am a document trader & collector and recently purchased a large group of documents from the file of Tench Tilghman, Brigadier General of the Maryland Militia during the period of the Mexican War.The group contains many items related to Goldsboroughs or Goldsboros from Maryland. One is a Brigadier General Robert T. Goldsborough who is referenced on one of the documents.There is also a document signed by William T.? Goldsborough who is acknowledging a commission as quartermaster.He is also mentioned on a list of "letters written" from General Tilghman's personal notes.
There is also a letter to General Tilghman dated July 1st, 1846 recommending a Dr. W.G. Goldsborough for Lieutenant Colonel of a regiment from Easton, MD
Another letter to the General dated July 30, 1846 regards arrangements of the "Trappe Independent Cavalry and references M.T. Goldsborough and Martin Goldsborough.From other documents in the group, I believe M.T. was M. Tilghman Goldsborough who signed a letter but I am confused because a different letter references R. Tilghman Goldsborough who was recommended for a adjutant commission of the "extra battalion" of Dorchester County.
An inventory document indicates that a "Capt. M.T. Goldsboro" had 42 sabres on Aug. 1st, 1846.
One last Goldsborough related document in the group is written by Col. Philip J. Thomas (future governor of Maryland) recommending commissions and recommends the appointment of Allen M. Goldsborough as captain of the Easton Militia Company.
As you may guess, I am quite confused by all of the Goldsboroughs.I am looking for additional information on any of them.In exchange, I am glad to provide more information about the documents as well as pictures and possibly copies. Thank you, Joy Shivar JustaJoy Historical Treasures Cornelius, NC
