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

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!

Frank,
Thank you for bringing to my attention the wrong date on Louise Linton Weimer and the mix-up on Theodore Linton. The girl that did the original memorials transfered all to me. I have fixed everything (I hope) and deleted a couple of duplicates. Will you please go back to the memorial for James Dudley Linton #22178878 and re-add the clock that said Time passes memories stay, also to Ray Stanley Linton and leave Jesus holding the baby. I had to delete the duplicates of both, Dudley and Ray. Both in Sudley cemetery in Prince William County, Virginia. My mother was Rita Alice linton the daughter of Charles Leaf Linton, and grandaughter to Theodore James Linton of Paint Bank.....Thanks again, paula

Hi,

I show that Mit Elizabeth Nichols' parents were George Haden Nichols and Mary Ellen Green Nichols; can you please help me with the Bradford parent lineage and how you found that information?

Thanks,
