Would you please correct the last name for Maudie Lee Deaton Grice. It currently shows the last name as Shice. Her memorial number is 118663663. Thank you!

Goff Family
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.

Thank you,
Carol Pack Urban

Alexander Yopp
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.

RE: Sadie Catherine Yopp Ensminger
Hello. Yes there are different people who have spelled and called her different names but her name actually is suppose to be spelled:

Sadie Cathern Yopp Ensminger

Her granddaughter was named after her:

Cathern Belinda White Grimes, my great, great grandmother. :)

Thank you for sending her father's memorial. I will ask the member who has her memorial to add her father.

Stay in contact!
