Searching for family background on my g-g-g-grandmother Charity Bunch Farris Goforth, born about 1829 or 1830 in Virginia. Married 1st to Francis M. Farris in 1843. Had 4 children with him. Married 2nd to Miles Goforth in 1855 and had 8 more children.
I am in the process of trying to verify verbal family history, which has her as full blood Native American. She and Miles lived in or around McMinn County, Tennessee. No known date of death for her. I've recently received information that she's possibly the daughter of Paul and Nancy Bunch.
