Kelly,
PRESTON GOFORTH JR., b. June 3, 1749 in Rutherford Co., NC, m. NANCY ELIZABETH "Betty" POTTS, is my direct ancestor. You have missed a step I think. PRESTON GOFORTH SR. is his father, b. May 20, 1714 in Talbot Co., Maryland. It's always good in doing genealogy research to list names, dates and places.

If PRESTON GOFORTH, JR. is in your direct line I would like to correspond with you. I have much information on these Goforths, and we could share.

I would like to share with you. I have some information which may be useful.

Do you have a John Kelly Goforth in your records? He is my ggg?uncle born in Cleveland County, NC in 1857, died in 1942. He is my namesake....I've been trying to find the name Kelly in his ancestors and eventually trace it back to Ireland/Scotland or Yorkshire, England where our Goforth line seems to have originated.

Hope to hear from you soon

Kelly

Preston Goforth Jr is in my direct line. He was my gggg grfather. I would like to share info with anyone who is related through Preston Goforth Jr. b. 1739, George Goforth b. 1778, Johnson Goforth b. 1810 or William Johnson Goorth b. 1850. I am specifically looking for information on my grandmother Lalla Bess Goforth b. 2/6/1895 to William Johnson Goforth and Mary Alice Wright. Lalla married a Henry Grady Settlemyer who died in 1924 and then married my grandfather Marshall Luther Riley. Lalla Bess Goforth died in Gastonia,. NC in 1958. Any Help would be appreciated!!!

Regina, as I think I stated before Preston Goforth Jr., b. 1739 in Rutherford Co., NC is in my direct line as well - my 4th great grandfather. Also George Goforth, b. 1778 in Cleveland Co., NC is my 3rd great grandfather. You and I are surely cousins.

I descend like this:
Preston Goforth, Jr. 1739
George Goforth 1778
Sarah Martha Goforth 1814 (a sister to your Johnson Goforth)

I will email you off-line so that we may share information on this Goforth Family. We need to talk.

Hi Sandy

My question is about a more recent ancestor, John Kelly Goforth, born in Cleveland Cty, NC in 1857. He is my great grand uncle and I have inherited his (middle) name. My maternal grandfather, Andrew Kelly Falls, also inherited the name.

My question is: what is the origin of "Kelly" in the Goforth family tree.

Thanks for any light you can shed. Please email me @ kelly2929@attbi.com
