Hi, Dusty!
Thank you for your response. I will give you a basic run-down of my lineage as far back as I can. My grandmother's name was Virginia Harris Goldston, born December 19, 1915. She married Horace A. Inman and had three children, including my father, Robert H. Inman. My great-grandfather's name was Edgar Harris Goldston, born July 15, 1875 and died March 22, 1917. I know that he had several siblings. Edgar married Rosa A. Womble and had five children, including my grandmother who was the youngest. Edgar's father was Thomas Jefferson Goldston. According to, he was born March 31, 1828. Thomas J. Goldston married Martha Elizabeth Guthrie who was also born around 1828. His father's name was Joseph John Jackson Goldston, who was born in October of 1800. Joseph married Martha Kate Rives.
That is about all I know. I hope it is enough for you to go on. I just gave you my direct lineage, but didn't include names of siblings. From what I can see, most of my direct lineage was from Chatham County, even though they didn't stay there. I would greatly appreciate any information that you have, and would be glad to cover any copying charges. Thank you in advance for your help.

Laura Inman Shelton
