Re: Walden/Goins Families in North Carolina
In Response To: Re: Walden/Goins Families in North Carolina ()
Hopefully your Walden research can answer some questions I have on my Walden lines.
I trace back to an Elizabeth "Betsy" Walden (3rd great-grandmother) born in Ross County, Ohio ca 1825. Her parents, John Walden & Mary Elizabeth Dotey (sp) were married in Ross County, Ohio on 8 May 1823. "Betsy's" family is reported to have come into Ohio from Northampton Co., NC.
Would there be a mention of these folks, John and Mary Elizabeth, in your research?
I'm AA and my mtDNA indicates a European Haplogoup and this Mary Elizabeth is as far back as I can go. These Waldens are consistently labeled as persons of color in Census and other Ohio governmental records.
The maternal sequence is Vera Adams, Josephine Lee, Edna Adams, Lovina Allen, Elizabeth "Betsy" Walden & Mary Elizabeth.
Elizabeth "Betsy" Walden married Peter Allen 4 Aug 1842 in Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio.
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
