GOFF was born in Ga. in 1815 and believed
to have died before 1855 in Mobile Al. He married Apr.21,
1840 MARY JANE RAIFORD in Mobile Al. Jane was
born 1822 in Al and died after 1880, her parents are unknown
but in the 1880 census she states her father was born in N.C. and
her mother was born in Ga.I believe the parents of William are
LEWIS GOFF and NANCY ?
to the will of LEWIS GOFF (3-23-1837 Mobile) he
names his children as SABRA (married to CHARLES HUBBARD),
JAMES, POLLY (married to JAMES ROBERTS) WILLIAM,
ELIZABETH, and LEWIS. In 1845 when the will is being probated
Elizabeth is called ELLENA (married to C.C. COLLINS) and Sabra
is now married to S. HAVARD instead of Charles Hubbard. I found a
deed that is signed by WILLIAM and JANE GOFF and SABRA and
CHARLES HAVARD, this deed is for land that is located in the same
area on the Ms/Al line where Lewis had purchased land before he died.
This family can be found in Mobile Al and Pascagoula Ms. WILLIAM's
age is also consistent with the age of one of LEWIS' sons on all census
records. IS THIS ENOUGH TO PROVE THAT MY WILLIAM
IS THE SON OF LEWIS??????
