Surnames: Compton Goltra
Oliver Goltra and Phoebe Compton had a son, Moore Compton Goltra who lived in Jacksonville, IL. Moore's son, Edward Field Goltra, moved to St. Louis and married Katherine Brown. There are considerable EFG records there at the Missouri Historical Society in Forest Park. They had two children, Edward Field Goltra, Jr. and William Brown Goltra. The latter was my father. As children, we were often told that my brother, Oliver, was the eighth. With respect to the Huguenot possibility, I went through the Huguenot records in Paris about 10 years ago and found no Goltras or variations thereof. There are quite old church records, however, with Goltra entries, in Flatford, England, about 8 miles west of York which my cousin Elizabeth discovered a few years ago.
