Looking for possible Brick Wall solution to John Golden/Golding's parentage

+5 votes
199 views
Born abt 1750 in Culpeper County, Virginia to an unknown mother and father.

John Golden (or Golding/Goulding/Guldin/Goldin/Goulden/Gordon) is the very last direct lineage "Golden" I can find (son-to-father, etc.) He married Permilla Carder (Carder-313), and ever after, Goldens and Carders have been associated. This includes family migrations and further inter-marriages down the generations. DNA has not helped me with this particular brickwall (my YDNA is of the M-253 haplogroup, which is rare amongst Goldens).

Perhaps he was not a Golden originally and just adopted the name?

I think that uncovering information about colonial-era Virginian Carders would be very helpful too, considering their ties. A whole group of families (Goldens and Carders, included) mass-migrated to Harrison County in what is now West Virginia sometime in the 1790s. I even saw reference to a "Cardertown" in the area.

Thank you!

Thank you, Judyann!

I have seen that connection before and I'm fairly certain that it's not accurate. There were a few Golden/Golding families in Virginia at that time. I think this is a separate line entirely, but it keeps getting connected to John Golden just based on this info in Ancestry.com. I don't think there's an actual source for this connection.

YDNA says that it is not possible for the two families to be related. The William Golding (c1704-1782) and Elizabeth Foster (c1704-1775) line has a very well-defined YDNA signature --- see this link for what a 12 marker match would look like.

Sorry Patrick . . . I'm only certain about my early C19th Gouldens/Gouldings/Goulans, living in East Yorkshire, England . . . and none of the 13 siblings born 1825 - 1849 emigrated to the USA
