Overview of my Lineage and Family Research
- Allied Families: Foster, Garnett, Ripley
Now that my hair has turned to silver, and some silver to white, I have more time to do some things.
In a bit of good fortune I live now within a 90 minute drive of where John Golding (b.1635-1640) lived at Gloucester, Virginia and just one hour from where William Golding (1704-1782) lived at Orange in Orange County, Virginia before moving much of his family to South Carolina.
My family research started in the late 1970s but I quit in the late 1990s due to hitting a brick wall on identifying my grandfather Green Golden. Due to new tools, databases and much more information being available, I renewed my family research as of April 2013 and have been ever so glad that I did.
I very much look forward to exchanging notes, thoughts, and ideas on Goldings, Goldens, Gouldings (G-Folk) of all origins.

Civil War Loyalist Claims
Southerners that actively supported the Union, and that could prove so, were offered reimbursement for their services, supplies provided to Union forces and losses due to their loyalty.
A byproduct of this process was that everyone knew who you were as the process required questioning MANY of your neighbors and other locals to verify your support for the Union.
This did not always endear you within the community as the South worked after 1877 to eliminate almost any memory of a divided South. Many claims were not settled until the late 1870s.
Below is a list of some Southern Goldens and Goldings that chose to seek a claim.
