Possible burial location as he gave the land for this church. However, since creating this memorial I discovered "The History of the Sarratt Family" by Noble John Sarratt (1809-1897) which in Chapter V that "P. 0. [typo for P?] Goforth, Sr., and family are members of old Bulah church." He also stated that their son's body was brought home during the War between the States:
"William Bostic [Goforth], the eldest, was killed on the battlefield near Dranage, Tennessee,
January 17, 1864, and his remains brought home and buried at Obediah Sarratt's
Cemetery." So both of these places are also possibilities.

His son, Preston P. Goforth (b. ca. 1860 in SC), a resident of Pawnee County, Oklahoma Territory, married Cora L. McClane (age 38) of Noble County, Oklahoma Territory on August 5, 1907 in Noble County. His widow was living with her daughter, son-in-law, and their children in Aberdeen, Grays Harbor County, Washington State.
