Overview of my Lineage and Family Research

Golden - William - DNA results - Ancestry

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.

Moses Ray Golden (1802-1894) -- YDNA Testing

>>> We now have a male descendant that has agreed to take a YDNA test. Test results should be available by mid-July 2016.

??? Many family histories say that Moses Ray Golden was the grandson of Jacob Golden, Sr. (1756-1779) who was married to Mary Ann Adams (1758-1853), and the son of Jacob Golden, Jr. (1780-1855) and Elsie Elizabeth Starr (1781-1837).

Per family lore, Moses' mother Elsie was a pure Cherokee who could speak no English, and she was taken away and died on the Trail of Tears banishment to Oklahoma.

This YDNA test will not resolve whether Elsie was a Cherokee although an Ancestry DNA test probably could do that. Starr was a common name among Cherokee in the area.

>>> The 'History of Upshur County, West Virginia' says however that Moses Ray Golden's grandparents were William and Nellie Golden. They were mentioned as grandparents when the marriage of Moses Ray to Rebecca Bell Rittenhouse (1806-1900) was recorded in the book.

The name Moses would fit well with the other names chosen by William and Nellie for their sons: Abraham, Isaac, and Nathaniel -- while Nathaniel is a biblical name his name is undoubtedly a twofer: accomplishes two things with doing just one thing. Nathanael Greene was an extremely popular and important general during the American Revolution responsible for leading forces against the British in South Carolina.
