Charles Marion was born about 1830 in Dallas Co. AL to John A. Goolsby b. 1802 Milstone, Oglethorpe Co. GA and Rebecca Ellis b. 12 August 1798.Rebecca is the daughter of Benjamin Ellis and Hannah McHenry.
The Goolsbys (Gouldsby) are first found in James City Co. VA by 1670.By 1746 they have moved to Albermarle Co. VA.By 1802 they are in Oglethorpe Co. VA, by 1825 Dallas Co. AL, and then 1839 to TX.
I am trying to find when Charles Marion died and where and what his wife, Martha B.'s last name was.Some say Pruitt, some say Crowson but I have not been able to substantiate either.
