Due to illness, my mom's health situation, and a lot of other things that have been taking my time, I haven't been posting on my blog very often. Please bear with me. I hope to be posting again, at least weekly soon. Also, I am going to be doing some updates and revamping the website so be on the watch for those changes and additions. Thanks for your interest.
For years, I have been trying to discover who Mary Goldsberry's parents were. Mary was Eliza Jane Dobbins Carder's mother. I think I may have found a clue about which Goldsberry family to which Mary belonged. The only problem is that the parents of the possible relative of Mary's are also unknown.
I'm trying to find out the relationship between Lucretia Goldsberry who married Eli Bolin in 1816 in Ross County, Ohio and my 3rd great grandmother, Mary E. Goldsberry who married William Henry Dobbins on 7 August 1828 in Ross County, Ohio. She later went to Pickaway County, Greene County, Miami County and Champaign County where maybe she had other Goldsberry relatives.
In 1850, Mary Goldsberry Dobbins' daughter, Eliza Jane was living in the household of William P. Boland (Bolin) in Xenia, Greene County, Ohio. William was the son of Lucretia Goldsberry and Eli Bolin. This seems to indicate to me, at least, that Lucretia and Mary must have been closely related. Can anyone help with this?

I don't know why I didn't think to post this until now. Guess it's because the past few months have been so hectic and crazy. Awhile back, I wrote a guest article for my friend, Derek Davey's blog. If you missed it, you can read it here: http://nwogenalogy.blogspot.com/2013/08/civil-war-prisoners-of-war-not-always.html

I can't believe that it's almost the end of August and the FGS Conference is this week in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. It's been such a busy summer, I didn't get to give you as much information about it on here as I had planned. I hope that you've been reading some of the other FGS Ambassador's blogs and the FGS Conference blog. With so much about the conference online, everyone ought to be well-informed by now. I'll fill you in on my conference experiences and what i learn after it's ove.
If you haven't registered, it's not too late. Registrations can be made at the door, however, the opportu nity for the pre-registration discount is over.
