    1. [TRIGG] THOMAS A GOULDING/GOLDING: IN STEWART CO GA IN 1800's
    2. TOM F DUNKLIN
    3. I have found some new information about my gg gfather, Thomas A Goulding, that needs verifying. However, with all the different spellings used for his surname, it's very difficult. Numerous records for my Thomas show his surname spelling with many variations such as..Goulding/Golding/Golden/Goulden/Gouldin, etc. My Texas branch has always used Goulding for our name. I could use some help.   Thomas, born ca 1818 GA may have been in Burke or Bryan counties of GA in earlier 1800's...between 1818 and 1840. No idea who his parents were. He is later found in 1840/1850/1860 and 1870 Stewart Co GA with a wife named Maria or Mariah. Believed he died in Stewart Co GA between 1872 and 1880. It has been thought that her surname might be Rigsby but now I think it could have been Triggs.   John J Triggs had a daughter by the name of Maria and in his family bible he listed a marriage between his daughter Maria and one Thomas A Golding. Though the surname spelling is different, I have found a few known documents with my Thomas' name spelled Golding. Also, in John J Triggs' last Will and Testament, he left property to his daughter in Stewart Co GA and named her husband as a Thomas A Golding. My Thomas A Goulding lived and raised his children in District 21, Lumpkin, Stewart Co GA. Thomas A Golding was also shown as wife Maria/Mariah's agent on GA Property Tax Digest records.   Wonder if anyone has any Goulding connection to Burke, Bryan, or Lee counties of GA or to the surname of TRIGGS?    Paula
