This is what is in my Goforth book:
The William Goforth Family
It is not sure who this William Goforth descends from, but it is believed to be the son of Zachariah Goforth in the main Goforth line who had the sons: Absolom, Asa; Zachariah; William born 1800 to 1810; Haslip and Humphrey. However, the children do not match up with the census data.
