I've read his will probated in Kershaw County, and found no additional information regarding siblings or parents. He is my "brick wall". Have searched unsuccessfully for about 4 years and haven't located his birthplace or parents. I always thought he was named for Horatio Gates and his middle name, George, for King George, so I suspect his parents' sympathies were with the British during the American Revolution. Odd that our Gates G. Goff should end up in Camden, Kershaw County, where Horatio Gates disgracefully deserted his post and his regiment during the Revolution, earning him the reputation as a coward. There must be at least 5 Goff descendants I know who would love to have Gates G. Goff's siblings and parent information. Good luck!
