My gggggrandfather John A. Goolsby moved from Georgia with his wife Rebecca Ellis Thompson and his mother Margaret to Houston County, Texas.I'll have to look at my notes but I believe he had other brothers and sisters that moved with him.
Mary Malissa Goolsby married H. E. Sharp.She was the daugther of John and Margaret and was my ggggrandmother.
Rebecca's will is filed at the Houston County courthouse.Original land grants for the Republic of Texas are filed in Austin.
We are probably related.Do you have information to connectyour Goolsbys to any of the above? I will gladly share what I have found on the Goolsbys.
