    3. Can anyone help prove or disprove any of the following regarding my gg gparents: Thomas A Goulding (but shown as Golding in early years) married a Maria or Mariah Trigg/Triggs ca 1838-40 in GA. Lived in Stewart Co GA until moving to Texas. Believe her father to be John J Trigg/Triggs. I need to know if the correct spelling is TRIGG or TRIGGS. I've seen it both ways. Maria/Mariah Goulding named a son James Trigg Goulding. Bible record of James Trigg/Triggs shows daughter Maria marrying a Thomas A Golding. Tax records in Stewart Co GA show him as being her agent for land left to her by her father. Thomas A Goulding and Maria/Mariah left GA in the 1870's and settled in Freestone Co Texas in a community called Cotton Gin. He has tax records in Freestone Co in 1878 and 1879 but is presumed dead by 1880 as Mariah is living with a son, John Goulding by then. My Goulding line is almost complete back to Thomas and Mariah but am still confused by spelling of surnames. My Goulding line is shown in numerous records as Goulding/Golding/Golden/Goulden, etc. The Goulding surname has been used for our family since the mid1800's.  Most mis-spellings are probably due to census taker error, but which is correct? Mariah's name is often spelled Maria as well as Mariah. Trigg and Triggs are often used in records. Would love to know for sure just what Mariah's complete legal name was and when and where she and Thomas died. Paula
