I am looking for information concerning A Dr. Urquhart who moved from Columbus, GA to Enon, Bullock Co. AL. His first name might be John?

I'm a descendant of John Godwin of Girard (Phoenix City, AL). His daughter Susan Alberta Godwin moved into the household of Dr. Urquhart of Columbus, GA after the death of her parents. John Godwin died Jan. 26, 1859.

Quoting from Journal written by Mrs. Albert E. Barnett (nee Mamie Banks) of Opelika, Alabama.
"Mama and Aunt Sallie had a few silk dresses left from the pre-war days, which they sometimes wore with their Neapolitan bonnets with ribbons tied under their chins, and tiny flowers under the brim. Aunt Sue had beautiful silk dresses and lovely jewelry. Her father, Mr. Godwin, was a bridge builder before the war and made lots of money and after his death she had lived in the home of Dr. Urquhart in Columbus."

Mrs. Albert E. Barnett was the daughter of Cordelia Allen Banks. Susan Albertha Godwin married Cordelia's brother Marcellus Allen.

Many names mentioned in this journal, willing to share information.
