Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 314, Jackson Township, White County, Indiana

"PERRY GODLOVE was born in Guernsey County, Ohio, June 4 1832, and is one of the nine children of JOSEPH and HANNAH (BUMGARDNER) GODLOVE, natives of Virginia. The family came to Delaware County, this State (Indiana), when PERRY was but an infant, engaged in farming, and there the father and mother died in 1859 and 1855 respectively. Of the children, only two sons and two daughters survive, and reside in Kansas, with the exception of our subject. MR. GODLOVE was married, May 26, 1855, to MISS MARGARET H. SHAFFER, born April 8, 1838, and daughter of JOHN and ELIZA SHAFFER, natives of Pennsylvania. There was born to their union eight children - FLORA E., EMMA J., ALBERT, IDA L., HENRY M., JOHN E., FRANK and EVA. In the fall of 1863, MR. GODLOVE and family came to this county, where he purchased 440 acres of land, which he has since increased to 560 acres, all in one body, and valued at $45 to $50 per acre. In October, 1864, he enlisted in Company B, One Hundred and Forty-second Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was honorably discharged in July, 1865. In politics, he is a Republican, and he and wife are members of the Church of God, of which he is a Trustee."
