Godfrey's SC > GA - see research
Posted by: Sharon Bennett Date: October 08, 1998 at 13:47:51
  of 2972


Would like to know if my James S Godfrey b: 1797 in SC is son of Ansel Godfrey of SC (b: 1754-1774). James S Godfrey's son William L Godfrey married my Caroline BENNETT. Would also like to know who the father of Ansel Godfrey is. Any information on Godfreys of SC or GA appreciated. If someone has this line please e-mail me (myeboshi@cris.com).
Will be glad to share Bennett information.
Thanks
Sharon Bennett
