William H. Gooldy 1800's Indiana
i'm looking to verify William H. Gooldy's parents.
per the 1850 census William was born in Va, 1790's.I have found a Frederick Gooldy in Bedford Co, Va.I also found marriage records in same county for Frederick's daughters Elizabeth (Nath'l Brafford, 4/18/1814) and Mary (George Mayhew 4/6/1826).There is also an Alfred Gooldy (1/11/1835 to Sophia Pollard) and(11/3/1853 to Mary T Elliott). I don't know if Alfred is related to Frederick or not.
William H. was in the War of 1812 as a Private, Saddler, and in Major Woodford's Squadron, Cavalry, Virginia Militia, and per censuses, he was a Saddler, like his son James Dean Gooldy. William was married to Harriett Athon in Indiana.
Also found that in 1860 census, family name was BADLY misspelled as Godsey, for James Dean Gooldy and 2nd wife Rachel.
I appreciate any info ... dea
