Looking for info: Goddard/Efaw
Posted by: Steve (ID *****5442) Date: February 27, 2009 at 20:34:59

I'm looking for information for my g-g-g-g-grandparents Joshua Goddard Sr. and his wife Margaret Efaw. He was born 6 May 1788 in Greene County, PA and died in 1854 (unknown where). She was born in 1785 and died 19 May 1872 in Marion, WV.

I don't know why she was in Marion, if they lived there or what but, it seems a long way for an 87 year old woman to be traveling if she had lived on or near the family farm in southwestern Greene County, PA and northeastern Wetzel County, WV.

We have death dates and/or burial locations missing for five of their children: Mary Polly Goddard 1823-1886 who was married to Alexander R. (Allen) Hill 1822-1886; Jesse Goddard b. 1822 married to Katherine Evans b. 1830; Katherine Goddard b. 1829 Greene County, PA, married to Abraham David Johnson b. 1826; Joshua Jr. b. 24 Mar 1830 Greene County, PA, d. after 1880; and lastly Reason b. Dec 1832 Greene County, PA d. 1890 Wetzel County, married to Elizabeth Carter Custer b. c1830.

I am looking for any info on them, burial info or if there are any other known kin in the Marion County area. Some of my best information has come through message boards and I'm hopeful that maybe someone in Marion knows something about these people as well.
