Janet Sue Gooldy Kimbrell, born in Kansas, most recent family lines were in Missouri since the end of the Confederacy. Prior to that the Gooldy family was in Virginia mostly in Bedford County. However 4x gr grandfather Frederick Gooldy apparently was born in Maryland c 1760 and next record shows him marrying Biddy (Bridget)Brown in Botetourt County, Virginia in 1791. It is believed they resided in the Southern District of Bedford County for a period of about eight years before relocating to Northern Bedford County, Virginia. Their youngest son Alfred born in 1810 is my 3x great grandfather. He married Sophia Pollard in 1835 and they lived in the Davis Mill area . Their son William Jesse is my second great grandfather. He and his brothers served in the War, oldest brother John Frederick was killed at the Battle of Williamsburg. I am working on locating more information on Frederick and Biddy currently. I have found chancery records from 1834 in which Frederick Gooldy gave a deposition regarding land ownership of a neighbor 7 miles from his own residence for 40 years. This is the first indication I have found that Frederick was alive as late as 1834.

I am able to pick up the Gooldy family trail in Virginia in the late 1700s. Frederick Gooldy married Bridget "Biddy" Brown in 1791 in Botetourt Co Virginia and spent their married lives in what would finally be called Bedford County. At times their land was in Lunenberg and perhaps they lived even in Campbell County but that is all yet to be determined. Chancery records indicate he was alive in 1834 and in Bedford County. No mention of wife.
Catherine Nichols Pollard is the mother of my 3x gr-grandmother Sophia Pollard Gooldy. Catherine Nichols married John Pollard January 9, 1787 in Bedford Co. They had seven children together. John died while some of the children were still under the age of 21. He died intestate and Catherine provided a life estate. Upon her death, her heirs went to court to divide the estate amongst themselves.
John Pollard, son of Francis and Betty Phelps Pollard married Catherine Nichols and they are parents of Francis, John, James, Nancy, Patsy, Catherine, George and Sophia. SOPHIA POLLARD MARRIED ALFRED GOOLDY in 1835 and they became my 3x gr-grandparents. To them were born eight children, their youngest raised by Sophia's sister Nancy Pollard Edgar after the death of Sophia in 1851. Sophia and Alfred's Children were John F., William J, Catherine, James, Mary Frances, Robert, Anna and Sarah.

Three generations removed from Virginia, our line is now in Kansas. Prior to 1791, Virginia, the line is lost. And the burial dates and places of Frederick and Bridget Brown Gooldy of Bedford county, Virginia (suspected about 1820s) and Sophia Pollard Gooldy near Davis Mill, Bedford Co, Virginia, about 1851, are all unknown.
