Do you know where Poage Cemetery is? There are a couple of requests for photos.
Thank you for the information you've provided on the Goff family.
My great, great grandmother was Sarah Lucy Margaret "Sallie" Goff daughter of George Washington Goff and wife Sarah King. Sallie lived from 1868 to 1961.
Sallie's first husband was Manderville Cook son of Ephraim Cook and Jane Martin. They had five children; George Madison (my great grandfather), Lewis Houston, Oris, Jackie Joe and Mary Etta. After Manderville died Sallie married Luther Pettry and had Grace Lou and Delva Mae.
I have more information on the family members which left Roanoke and settled in Summers Co., WV.

Thanks for the interesting bio. After reading about the battle of Franklin and the enormous Confederate losses in Widow of the South, I'm surprised he survived at all.
