The John Tolley who married one Patty Goode was a son of Christopehr Tolley of Rockbridge county, Virginia. John was mentioned in his father's will in 1806. Others mentioned in said will were John's brothers Joseph, Samuel, Christopher Jr.and also Christopher's wife Patience.
I think a George Goode signed the amrriage certicate for John and Patty Goode in 1785. I too beleive that John was a revolutionary soldier. His father Christopher was in the Augusta county milita in 1758. He shows up again in 1762.
Would you have any info. on Christopher's parantage? Also John died I beleive in 1825 leaving Patty a widow. John and Patty had only girls no boys.
