I'm new to this genealogy stuff, so I need some help. Here's what I know: my great-grandfather's name was Columbus Washington Goolsby, his wife's name was Suzanne or Suzie McCorkle, their son (my grandfather) was Tim Wade Goolsby.
As far as I know, they all were from, or at least lived in Tennessee.
My problem is that I can't find any info on Columbus' parents, although I'm told that his mother was a Cherokee Indian named Bear?? (later became Martha Goolsby??).
Can anybody give me any help, or at least tell me where I can get help? I would greatly appreciate it!
