Joseph John Infant son of John M.








From Black’s book:


ANTHONY GHOLSON, SR. (name spelled Gholson, Gholston, Gholstone, Golson, Goldstone, Goldston, etc., in the various records during his life)   born 1670-1680 St. George Par., VA, died 12/3/1764 St. George Parish, Orange, VA married Jane UNK 1704 was probably born in Virginia.  The first definite record of him is found in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, on July 5, 1725, when he purchased 200 acres of land on the south side of Holliday’s Swamp in Saint George’s Parish in Spotsylvania County from James Taylor of Drysdale Parish in King and Queen County Virginia  Anthony Gholson was probably from Old Rappahannock County which later became Essex County, from which Spotsylvania County was formed.  The author definitely believes that Anthony was in Virginia, probably between 1670 and 1680, and that he was descended from a line of Goldston’s’ (Goulston, Goldston, Gulston) who were in Virginia at a very early date, were very probably of the same lineage as Dr. Theodore Goulston (Gulston, Goldston) of the London Company  (see record and original recording of the last will and testament of Dr. Theodore Goulston in the appendix).  (Record was copied on microfilm in Black’s book and I am unable to copy.)  Anthony Gholson (Gholston) was granted 1,000 acres of land on Terry’s Run in Spotsylvania County on September 28, 1728 from King George the Second and at the same time his two sons, Anthony Jr. and William were granted another 1,000 acres jointly (see grants in the appendix).

 Anthony Gholson, Sr., signed the documents that are recorded to which he was a part with a large “A”, indicating that he was raised without the opportunity of an education, which lends evidence to his possible birth and early life in Virginia rather than England.  Anthony deeded his personal property to his wife and children.  He names three sons, William, Anthony and John and two daughters, Elizabeth and Lucy, in these deeds.  Anthony Sr. died before December 3, 1764, pedigree chart from Mormon Library Ancestral File shows he died 12/3/1764  when his widow, Jane Gholson, made a deed of gift of all that she possessed to her son, John, and after her death to be divided as directed in the deeds from her deceased husband. In the deed she calls John Gholson “my son” she calls the other children named in her husband’s deeds as “rest of my children”.   Some have thought that Jane may have been the 2nd wife of Anthony Sr. and possibly not the mother of his children, but this would indicate that they were her own children.  There was a Jane Gholson whose inventory was made on February 28, 1797, in Spotsylvania County.  Though she could have been the widow of Anthony Sr., it doesn’t seem likely, since she had property in Orange County on which she was to live during her lifetime according to her deed of gift to her son, John.  This Jane Gholson , whose inventory was made in 1797, was more likely the 2nd wife of Anthony Sr.;  he lived in Spotsylvania County and was married the 2nd time to Joan (probably Perry;  Jane and Joan being interchangeable frequently in older records.)


1.                   WILLIAM  GHOLSON (SR.) born in Virginia,  probably before 1707 (if he was 21 years old at

the time of the land grant); married 1st to Susanna Collins, 2nd to Joan  (?Perry).

2.                   ANTHONY GHOLSON JR., born in Virginia probably before 1707 (if he was 21 years old at the

time of the land grant); married Mary Sandridge.

3.                   ELIZABETH GHOLSON, born in Virginia; married 1st William Pollard and 2nd  Samuel Rice

4.                   LUCY GHOLSTON, born in Virginia, married a Mr. Stapp, probably James Stapp.

5.                   JOHN GHOLSON, born in Virginia, married Esther Cook

 Herbert writes:

The first reunion of the Goldston Family, descendants of the original William Goldston (Click here for Last Will & Testament of William Goldston) who lived and died in Chatham County 1808, was held in Goldston, N. C. July 23, 1950.  This meeting was planned by Aubrey F. Goldston (B 1890), a descendant of this family.  At this meeting, George E. Rives (pronounced REEVES), a relative of the wife of Joseph John Goldston (B 1800 D 1874) and a long time resident of Goldston, NC, furnished a history, mostly from memory and personal knowledge, of the heads of the families back to Joseph John Goldston and a son of the original William Goldston.  Real estate records and wills, etc., confirm this.

 The writer, another historian of the family, Herbert J. Goldston (B 1897) of Sanford, N.C, also finds recorded there the will of the above William Goldston dated 1808 and in it he names the younger children:  William Goldston, Jr., George Washington Goldston, Joseph John Goldston (B 1776) and his sons-in-law, George Williamson and Mial Ramsey, executors to his will. As to where there were any older children in this family I have not established.  Since there is about 19 years difference in the older son Thomas’s age than the younger one’s ages, he may have been married twice.

 I have not as yet found any record of his birth or any record of first wife, if any.  However, in a real estate deed in 1796, his wife “Sara” joined in signing the deed.  This of course would be the mother of the younger children if not the older ones. She is listed in the Federal Census of 1810 from Chatham County, NC, as Sarah Rosser Goldston.  Among the early records of Chatham County, NC, August Court shows among the Captains of the Militia was “William Goldston”.   Colonial Records, Volume # 22, page 223, William Goldston wrote Co. David Fanning “Hope you and yours will not interrupt any of the inhabitants of Chatham County until matters are further settled”.  Year of 1782.

 Also, there are other references in these records pertaining to William and Charles Goldston.  In the Archives of History in Raleigh, NC, pertaining to the Revolutionary War Records, there is also in Book G. O. 147 list from Chatham County, page 47, William Goldston, Lt. Col., among the field officers.  Also there are 3 vouchers from the State of NC, Hillsborough District, Auditor’s Office:  first one is dated April 26, 1781 # 294 that William Goldston allow the sum of Six Hundred Ninety Seven Pounds, Ten Shillings; # 4970 dated October 1, 1783, allows Fifty Pounds, Twelve Shillings and Six-pence.  Also in the archives in Raleigh, NC, in the real estate entries of Chatham County dated October 29, 1778, William Goldston enters his claim # 450 for 640 acres, # 451 for 400 acres and # 452 for 400 acres.  This land is located adjoining and on the south side of Rocky River also Bear Creek, being to south and Tick Creek to the north, at Greens Mill and known as the Beaumont Place.  On this land is where William Goldston lived and died.  He is assumed buried in an old graveyard about 300 yards south of the Pittsboro-Bear Creek Highway and from where the old large building was located.  His grave has an old stone marker “W.G. Died 1808”.  Also, in 1783, located on Fall Creek, the southwest corner of Chatham County, NC, grant 100 acres, grant 200 acres.  There were many real estate transactions after this by him until 1806, this deed being recorded in 1810 after his death. 

 After giving you his ancestors, I will write something on the origin of the Goldston Family in this and other states.  .I will now give you his descendants as complete as I have been able to obtain, from 1950 to 1955. 

There may be a few who have been born or passed on during this time, which I have not recorded.  The purpose of this history is to perpetuate the names of all our ancestors as far back as can be ascertained now and to leave behind us for the rising generations to follow.

Abbreviations explained:  “G” generation, “C” child or children, “M” married, “B” born, “S” single, “L” lived or living, “D” died, “N” native of.

2 G 1, 2, & 3 children, Mial Ramsey and George Williamson, son-in-laws of the original William Goldston and the following Thomas children, his son, named in the original William Goldston Will, were the older children of the family.  No record of the 2 sons-in-law’s families.  The four younger children of the family being:  George Washington Goldston, William Goldston, Joseph John Goldston and Elizabeth Goldston. 
Families described as follows:

 2 G 2 C    Thomas Goldston, born 1776 died 1840 married 2/27/1808 to Liddie Waddle.  They lived and died and he is buried (with stone marker) on his farm given to him by his father, William Goldston, the year of their marriage.  This farm is in the southeast corner of Randolph County on Deep River.  It is near the Chatham County line and a part of or near to the land where his Uncle Charles Goldston first settled in this part of the country.  7 Children:

     3 G 1 C  Mary Goldston married John Barber, no record of this family.

     3 G 2 C  Sally Goldston married 8/4/1835 to Alfred Brower of Brower’s Mill, Randolph County, NC.

     3 G 3 C  Wincy Goldston married 9/26/1836 to Alexander Crump, Anson County, NC.

All the other children listed as being under legal age.

3 G 4 C  William Goldston was living on farm adjoining his mother’s when she died around the year of 1870.  No record of marriage or his family.

 3 G 5 C  Elizabeth Goldston, born 1827, died 1879, married 1/19/1846 to Atlas Rush.  (The following information and history of this family is written by Mr. R. C. Rush, Sr., a member of this family who is now living in Sanford.  He has been an active member and Secretary-Treasurer of the Steele St. Methodist Church for 25 years).

 The above Elizabeth and Atlas Rush spent their entire wedded life in Southern Montgomery County; first few years of their early married life on the Luther Plantation located on the head waters of Dry Creek about two miles west of the home place of Benjamin and Lucretia Rush, his parents.  After the death of Lucretia, (mother of Atlas) which occurred in 1853, Atlas and Elizabeth moved to the old home and spend the balance of their life taking care of Benjamin, father of Atlas, who was overcome by blindness a few years prior to his death in 1860.

 The old home was nicely furnished for the time.  An inventory of the estate was made at the sale in 1860 at the division of the personal property shortly after the death of Benjamin.  The Rush family owned a few slaves but they were favored with the faculty of seeing the end of this despicable custom.  Atlas was not the owner of any slaves or no record of ownership.  Benjamin, his father, sold his slaves about 1851 according to an inventory of a deposition in other old papers of the family.

 In culture and refinement know that Atlas and Elizabeth were equals of their neighbors in their home region, and in morals and manners they were at ease with acquaintances of their region and their words and customs rules of their day.  Their country home by the “Big Road” was a gathering place for many years: post office, meeting place for the neighborhood where gossip and other news could be had at first hand.  Atlas was a member of the County Board of Commissioners of Montgomery County for many years.  He had a pet saddle horse known as his Mason pony.  Atlas was a member of the Blackmer Lodge # 127-AF&M located in or near Mt. Gilead,

 Elizabeth being called by the Divine Master to rest several years ahead of Atlas, lived a span of 32 years.  While many have lost their vivid memory of this couple over the years, others have told me the beauty and personality of Elizabeth, friends who have long since gone to rest have told of the striking resemblance to Elizabeth.  Mr. & Mrs. Thurmond J. Allred, Norman, NC, have a good picture of Atlas and Elizabeth Rush which came to them from their mother, Mrs. J. T. Allred who died in 1948.

 Atlas and Elizabeth have left a fine example to be governed b, and in a period of time which has changed the record of history:  the abolition of slavery, advent of railroads which has developed the far reaches of our highly favored land and brought the hard surface roads which revolutionized our mode of living.  Also, you have left two generations of survivors as a whole prospering good citizens every ready to the call of danger and many have served in the defense of our land in two of the greatest wars in history.  6 children as follows:

 4 G 1 C  William C. Rush, b 1847 d 1943, married Miss Sallie Green, b ____ d 1937. To this couple born a large family and now scattered across North Carolina, 3 boys of this group farmers and now reside near their old home.  A record of this family is not available.

 4 G 2 C  Thomas G. Rush, b 1849, d 1896.  Never married.  He was a house builder from Georgia to Virginia.  Said he built the original Jackson Springs Hotel, a famous place to those of past years.

 4 G 3 C  Benjamin F. Rush, b 1850, d 1935, married (1) Amelia Allred, b 1860 d 1902, (2) Mrs. Loula Cox b ____ d 1929.  Amelia and Benjamin were the parents of five children, three girls and two boys.  All reaching adulthood except one son who died in infancy 1902.  Thirteen grandchildren, living in Sanford, Raleigh and Winston-Salem, each connected in some branch of commercial life.  As far as know, all are prospering.   

4 G 4 C  Henritta Rush, b _____ d 1946, married James T. Allred, b____ d 1933.  A large family blessed their wedded life, which are widely scattered.  The boys are farmers; the girls attracted to the different branches of commercial life.  So far is known all are prospering. 

                4 G 5 C  Cornelia Rush, b ______ d 1930, married to Jule B. Bowden, b _____ d 1919.  To this union came a large family, which survived to adulthood.  This family left Montgomery County about 1896 moving to Ramseur where they resided for a year or so, afterwards moving to Greensboro.  Here three surviving girls yet live, I am told. One boy, a technical executive of the Fields Plant in Fieldale, VA.   Another son in school who won a Rhodes scholarship was drafted into the English Army and saw service in Belgium WWI.  A letter not very long ago from a sister stated he maintained a residence in Greensboro but was working in Philadelphia.

 4 G 6 C  Miles J. Rush, b _____ d 1914, married Miss Green, b _____ d 1917.  To this union born a large family but several of their children died in infancy.  Survivors include three of which reside in Rockingham, NC, connected commercial life of this section; others of the same family reside in other sections of the state and in commercial life.

 3 G 6 C  Joseph John Goldston,  (I don't understand this, perhaps got names mixed up) No record of he or his family, if any.  He must have been around 12 years old when his father died.  He could have been the one that his aunt from Randolph County carried west to Texas as mentioned in the history of the Goldstons from the west by Walter Lynn Goldston, Houston, Texas, when he attended the 2nd reunion of the Goldston Family in 1952.  Or, since his age would seem a little older, it is possible that he would have had a son or his brother William that could have been him instead.  There must be some descendants of these two brothers still living and is possible they are out west since, so far, I have found no record of them here in NC.  It is further possible that one of these brothers had a son named James Stancell Goldston, referred to in a letter to me dated September 14, 1952, from Mrs. Rose Goldston of Leaksville, NC, giving the history of her husband’s family that the above “James Stancell Goldston was from Chatham County, NC.  His parents must have died while he was very young, because he was reared by a Mr. Jack Goldston (this being Joseph John Goldston, born 1800 and lived on Bear Creek 1 mile north of Goldston being the brother of Thomas Goldston b 1776 d 1840 of Randolph County who was the father of these two brothers, William and Joseph John.)  While yet a young man, he went into the service of the Civil War.  He was born Sept. 14, 1846.  He married Patience Elmyre of Montgomery County, NC, b 1846 d 1922, in December 25, 1865 (?).  They lived on a farm in this county, later they moved to Rockingham and operated a grocery store there.  Later they went to Hamlet and operated a hotel.  After moving from Hamlet they went to Concord until his death by Typhoid Fever in 1894.  There are descendants of his family still living in Concord, Kannapolis and Leaksville.”  This information is being mentioned to you in that somebody, somewhere, who would know more about connections of these families and if so would appreciate the information.

  3 G 7 C  Lydia Ann Goldston b 11/9/1832 d 1/12/1898 m 12/11/1849 to Benton Burns of Wadesboro, NC.  They lived and are buried there in Eastview Cemetery.  He was a cotton merchant and ran a hotel there.  5 children:

                 4 G 1 C  Mattie Burns married George Horton, they one time lived in Lee County around Sanford.

                4 G 2 C  Charlie Burns lived in Wadesboro.

                4 G 3 C  Sally Burns, lived in Wadesboro.

                4 G 4 C  Hattie Burns lived in Wadesboro.

                4 G 5 C  Scrap Burns, married Dr. John Battle.  Their home is about 2 ½ miles out of Greensboro

on Randleman Road.  (Formerly with Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Co.)

 (In marriage bonds of Randolph County, NC, a Polly Goldston married 11/7/1825, to Peter Winfield.  If this was the daughter of the above Thomas Goldston, since she was not mentioned in his will, she may have died before he made his will.  If anyone has any record of this family, please advise.  Since writing the above information, I have found there was a John Gholson who died in 1810, living in Franklin County, NC, and among his children was Polly Goldston who I believe was the above person married in Randolph County as she would have been around 20 years of age.)

 2 G 4 C George Washington Goldston born 1796 died 1863 lived and died on his farm 1 mile east of Ore

Hill now known as Dr. Hanner place, buried in the Goldston Graveyard on this place.  He bought and sold

considerable real estate.  He, with Samuel Siler, owned about 700 acres and he conveyed ½ interest to

Samuel Siler in 1850.  In Siler City the land west of Greensboro Street was embraced in that tract of land.

He married May 23, 1821, Margaret L. Palmer.   Her father was Dr. Robert Palmer of Gulf, NC, 2nd wife

1850.  Elizabeth Ramsey (widow of Joseph Ramsey), no children.  7 children by first wife mentioned

in his will as follows:

 3 G 1 C  Ann P. Goldston married Dr. John C. Hanner.  1 child, Anna Mary Born 1847 died 1852.  No record of other children

            3 G 2 C  Robert W. Goldston died before his father from injuries while engaged in the Civil War.  He owned and operated a large farm and store across Deep River from High Falls in Moore County.  He also owned and operated a gold mine 1 mile southwest of Hemp, now Robbins.  He married Louisa Cagle of Moore County.  They had no children.  Their old home still stands on the above gold mine land and they are buried below the house, no markers.

            3 G 3 C  George Washington Irving Goldston, born 8/1/1830, died 3/29/1863.  Married 2/19/1856 to Harriet Johnson who was born Fayetteville, NC, (where Highsmith Hospital now stands).  He served in the Civil War.  Their home still stands in Fayetteville (Haymount section) and is owned and occupied by their granddaughter, Ellen Pate Stevens, 1427 Raeford Road.

The second reunion of the Goldston Family was held in Goldston, NC, Sep. 1, 1951.  Walter Leon Goldston (born 3/23/18944) from 202 Gas & Oil Building, Houston, TX, who was reared in Goldston, NC, and a descendant of this family, attended this meeting and with him William M. Goldston and wife Sue E. Davis Goldston, who at 507 Texas Avenue, Corpus Christi, TX, (and as shown by the copy of the history of the Goldston Family in the West by Major Andre Goldston (born 1845, died 1924), presented by him (Walter Leon) at this meeting), is a descendant of the original Charles Goldston who lived in Chatham County, NC, and with him Lenode Goldston and wife Weenorah Goldston, 6135 Kirby St., Houston, TX, who were not certain as to whether or not they were descendants of Charles or his brother William Goldston (died 1908).

The above Walter Leon Goldston also presented in addition to Major Andre Goldston’s History, referred to above, which had been obtained from some of the Goldstons now living in Texas.

Quote:  “in the early 1930’s the writer met Mr. and Mrs. John Maxey Goldston, Jr., who at that time lived in Italy, Texas, a town about 75 miles south of Dallas.  Mr. John Maxey Goldston, Jr., at that time was something more than 70 years old.  He had a brother, Major Andre Goldston, 15 years his senior, who had died in 1924.  Major Andre spent most of his life in Central Tennessee, just east of Nashville.  Before he died, he came to Texas and lived there until his death.  Major Andre, during his lifetime, compiled a diary of the genealogy of the Goldston family.  This diary was based on information given to him by his father, John M. Goldston who lived and died in Wilson County, TN.  Since Major Andre Goldston’s death, the genealogy of this branch of the Goldston family has been kept by the wife and children of John Maxey Goldston, Jr.”

“During my conversation with John Maxey Goldston, Jr., in the early 1950’s, the following information was disclosed about the family, some of which is not mentioned in the diary kept by Major Andre Goldston:  I was informed that the Goldstons originally came from Scotland.  There are three boys; Charles, John and William.  They spelled their names ‘Gholson’.  Charles Gholson served in the British Navy.  As compensation for such services, the King of England granted to Charles a tract of land in the new country.  Before the Revolutionary War, Charles came to America and brought with him his brothers, John and William.  They arrived in the new country and settled on their grant of land in and around what is now known as Chatham County, NC.

“John Gholson did not remain in this part of North Carolina. He moved on to the west side of the mountains in which is now eastern Tennessee.  He never changed the spelling of his name, nor did his children.  The descendants of John Gholson continue to bear the name ‘Gholson’.

“Charles Gholson had 10 children, only two sons:  Charles Gholson, Jr., and John M. Gholson, the other 8 children being girls.  The entire family moved to Tennessee after the Revolutionary War, near Nashville.  Some of the descendants of John M. Gholson are now living in Texas.  Four of the girls lived and died in Tennessee; two lived and died in Arkansas, and the other two lived and died in Texas.  Charles Gholson, Jr., moved to DeSoto County, Mississippi.  He lived and died there.  His children, with the exception of one girl, all returned to Tennessee.  Three of them moved to west Tennessee.

“William Goldston (died 11808) and his family remained in North Carolina.

“Below is the diary of Genealogy of the descendants of the original Charles Gholson from NC as compiled by Major Andre Goldston (born 1845, died 1924) married to Eugina Cox, daughter Berry and Lacy Cox (born 1846, died 1909).  Major Andre was station agent for several years in Lebanon, TN.  He and his wife are buried there in Cedar Grove Cemetery.  This information as we received it from Mrs. J. M. Goldston who is now ’81 years young’ and is living in Hillsboro, TX.

The writer, Herbert J. Goldston, finds among the real estate records of Wilson County, TN, a deed to John Goldston from Charles Hodges in 1806.  This indicates he moved there prior to that time.  Also there are several real estate recordings by him and Charles Goldston, Jr., (born 1794, married 1814 to Elizabeth Neal in Lebanon, TN., according to marriage records there) and their children afterward.


Between the years of 1807 and 1809 there is a deed between David Goldston and William Lythe. This David Goldston is not recorded in this diary of Major Andre Goldston.


I have found no positive records to agree or disagree with John Maxey Goldston, Jr., that the Goldston Family in Chatham County were originally from Scotland and that Charles and William Goldston changed their name from “Gholson” to “Goldston” and John Gholson and family remained the same.  However, among the first records of Charles, William and John (this may have been Charles’ son instead of his brother) in Chatham County, their records were spelled “Goldston”.


Other times thereafter, I found spelling of Gholson, Goaldson, Gulson, Gouldson, but no record of Gholson.  However, it was not unusual back in that time for family names to be variously spelled due to misspelling and fault of copying correct names from time to time.  It has been our general opinion, as I have often heard my father say the Goldstons originally came from Scotland. 


Grace Green Tysor, Rt. 3, Bear Creek, NC, whose Great Grandfather Joseph John Goldston (born 1800) and her grandfather and mother having lived on his plantation after his death, has in her possession an old history book of Scotland and judging by the type of print, etc., must be around 200 years old.  It is possible this originally belonged to William Goldston and he brought it with  him when he first came to this country.


To find some records of proof that Mr. and Mrs. John Maxey Goldston were mistaken in stating that Charles, William and John came directly from Scotland and settled in Chatham County, NC, and did not originate from the family already over here, I have spent much time in checking all Goldston, Gouldston, Gholson, and Golsons.  I have been able to find so far in this state and Virginia, especially prior to 1800, records not necessary to bring in at this time since received the following history from Margaret Johnson.  This search, however, being very incomplete, this week, 9/11/1955, Margaret Gholson Johnson, 2607 Elm St., Cairo, Ill., came to my rescue by receiving from her a book of the Gholson History by her cousin, Virginia Baker Mitchell of Dallas, TX.  Also she sent along some other notes, etc., showing how she established her facts.


Margaret writes: “Virginia gave up her time and money to go to many states to get first-hand information about this Gholson family and she did this from 1945 to 1949 when she died very suddenly.  Virginia’s husband, Harold Mitchell, hired a trained genealogist to edit the history as a memorial to Virginia.  He placed them in public libraries.”


She did a  wonderful job and it is the most complete history on the Gholson’s and allied families as yet I have seen.. After reading it, I could not help but feel how much time I have wasted.


She names “Anthony Gholson, estimated birth 1684-87, died 1764.  He married Jane ?.  King George, II, issued under Gov. William Gooch a grant to Anthony Gholson Sep. 28, 1725, on Terry’s Run in Spotsville County, VA (Land Patent Book # B:441) and on same time also a grant of another 1000 acres on Terry Run to his sons William and Anthony.


Children of Anthony were:  William, married Susanna Collins, lived in Spots County, VA.  Living with his son 1790, believed to have died shortly after that time.  This was the family I was anxious to find.  Among his children are no Charles, but John and William.  John, born 1740, officer in Company H at Battle of Guat (?) Meadow, 1754.  Nothing further is known of him.  William, born 1753, married Polly (Mary) Jorrell.


Records show that William J. Gholson was in the Revolutionary War in Virginia and received land grant in Kentucky.  In 1884, shows he received a pension, his residence being Caldwell Co., KY.  He died there in 1/2/1837.  He was born around 1758, so it seems our William and Charles could not be in this family.


The second son of Anthony was Anthony II.  He last lived and died in Halifax County, VA.  Estimated birth 1708, died 1779 leaving a will and naming his children… no sons by the name of Charles and William, but John, being the 3rd child, born around 1752, lived in Wilson County, GA, after the Revolutionary War, married Ann Pettis.  Sold land there around 1790 and believed moved back and lived with his mother after his father’s death.


Joseph, 7th child, born around 1760 lived in and around Halifax, VA.  He was killed in 1808 as shown by will of inquest of that county.

The 5th child and youngest son  of the  three, show of Anthony first, was John (?).  Estimated birth 1713, married Esther Cook.  They lived in Orange County, VA.  A will proved there in 1790 naming two sons and three daughters.  John, 3rd, married 11/25/1770 (see Douglas Register) to Frances Stryman (or Tourman) and had a daughter Lucy B, born 2/2/1771, and a son, John 4th, of North Carolina.


Gholsons in NC near Raleigh claim descendants from Charles 4th, son of John 3rd, who came from Virginia after the Revolutionary War.  Of this John, they are confused as to whether he came from “Scotland” as many residents near him did, or through he Virginia descendants of Charles 4th; they say he had at least two brothers, namely, William 4th and John 4th G.

Goldston, observes this as being the first “Charles” mentioned in this family while Virginia Mitchell’s history shows him to be the son of John3rd.  She does not list him in above as one of John3rd’s children.  Virginia Mitchell further states in her history “Charless4th lived and died in Chatham County, NC, and according to his descendants, Mrs. W. L. Hull had a son John 5rh Goldston who changed the spelling of their names from Gholson to Goldston.


John Goldston 5th, son of Charles 4th (John 3rd, John and Anthony1str)… she did not find John 3rd Goldston’s will naming his children, therefore placed Charles 4th as being his child also William.(?).  If this had been correct, these sons would have been too young for our Charles and William who lived in Chatham County, since as shown above, he married in 1770.  The writer has found John 3rd Goldston’s will recorded in Franklin County, Book 156, dated Nov. 19, 1799.  He left all of his property to his wife and children.  The children and mother deeded this property o Isham Fox. 


The will showed his children to be:  Benjamin Gholson, married to Sarah Andres 10/15/1910, according to bonds in Granville County, 2nd child being Polly Gholson, Lucy Gholson (she died prior to 1811 and left a will showing her father and mother to be John and Frances, 4th child John Gholson and 5th, Thomas Gholson.


So, while we find no proof of connections of our Goldstons in Chatham County, we must not forget the possibilities of the Virginia Gholsons (having married twice without records of family), so far, that would connect them.  So until then, we have no further proof than Mr. and Mrs. John Maxey Goldston, Jr., that they came direct from Scotland here.


The Gholsons referred to in Virginia Mitchell’s history as being near Raleigh, no doubt, are Anthony Gholson’s family at Henderson, NC.  Evidently, I am sorry to say, she did not come across our family at Goldston, NC.


The writer finds among the records in the Archives Building in Raleigh, NC, in the Revolutionary War Records, voucher # 5387 being in the State Auditor’s Office, Hillsborough District, dated Aug. 6, 1782, to Charles Goldston.  Real estate records of Randolph County, NC, show a grant of land 640 acres to Charles Goldston and William Searcy dated 1784, this land being located on Deep River in the southeast corner of Randolph County, adjoining the Chatham County line and Cumberland County line (now Moore County), also adjoining land already owned by Charles Goldston.   I have found no record to Charles Goldston for this tract of land, but according to old settlers there is an old Goldston place there partly in the above three counties.  Moore County has old records since their original court house and records were burned.  On a part of this land in Randolph County and on Deep River is where later Thomas Goldston lived and died and he is buried there.  On his grave is a maker “B 1776 D 1840”. 


On this land may have been where Charles and his brothers first settled.  In this area there were many scrimmages and battles between David Fanning and patriots, since his hide out was at Cross Hill, a short distance northeast of what is now Carthage.  It was a short distance down the river east of Charles Goldston’s place where Col. Philip Alston lived and there the battle between he and his band against David Fanning took place.  In regard to Phillip Alston, a statement written by Robert Rowan published in a book on David Fanning’s history on the Revolutionary War says, “Colonel Philip Alston seems to rule them all, and a greater tyrant is not upon the earth.”  This old Alston home still stands with bullet holes through it walls.  It is now being restored by the Moore County Historical Society.  In the old history book of Revolutionary Incidents, published in 1843, which the writer now has in his possession, states that Col. Golson killed Col. Walker in April, 1782 (Walker was Fanning’s right hand man).  We hope as Col. Golson descendants are still living, some in that region and some in the West, the circumstances will be more fully brought to light and the transaction will be fairly represented.  This fight took place while Fanning’s men were crossing Deep River above what is now Howard’s Mill at, or near, the old Goldston farm. 


Colonial records (State) volume # 22, page 21`3, David Fanning writes: “Jan. 7, 1762, at Little River, NC, I heard if a Captain Golson who had been distressing the Loyalist and went in search of him myself; I did not meet him.  I went with a desire of burning Captain Golson’s house, which I did, also 2 others.”  (This could have been, however, all the brothers).  Also, there are other references in the Colonial Records including again, Fannine wrote on Sunday, Feb. 10th, 1782, “That I came to terms of peace with Captain Golson and Captain Hinds.”


Charles Goldstone was among 350 others who signed a petition addressed to the Governor, Colonial Records, Volume # 8, page 735.


Charles Goldston owned 2 tracts of land, 200 acres each, located on the east side of Haw River adjoining or near the old Hillsborough and Fayetteville highway.  This I believe being a short distance up Haw River from the present bridge at Bynum.


On September 21, 1795, Charles Goldston sold his right and deed to the mill on Haw River to John Farrington.  Again, on the 12th day of March, 1797, Charles sold to William Lamberth (I believe his son-in-law) all his household furniture and stock, including 2 land grants of 200 acres each, proven November Term, 1797, by oath of Samuel Upchurch.  In August, 1801, William Lamberth sold both 200 tracts to Benjamin Watson and in  a 175 acre tract from him to Thomas Eubanks.  It defines a line to a post oak, to a branch called Goldston’s Spring Branch.  Charles Goldston sold his half of 640 acres in Randolph County to William Argo, prior to 1799.



According to the Federal Census of 1800, Charles Goldston was living in Chatham County.  It is assumed that Charles Goldston’s wife died before or around 1797  Afterwards, he sold his household and stock to his son-in-law, William Lamberth, and lived with (him) until he died a short time after 1800.


Around 1804, William Lamberth sold his land and with Charles’s entire family, moved to central TN, east of Nashville, near Andrew Jackson’s home.


The first Federal Census in 1790 showed Charles Golson living in Chatham County with two sons over sixteen and two sons under sixteen and five daughters.  Also, William Golston, living in Chatham County with one son under sixteen (this being Thomas, born 1776) and four daughters.  Also, John Goldston living in Moore County (this could have been a brother or Charles’ son, and his home could have been on Deep River on that part of the Goldston’s place in Moore County).  It shows only one daughter.  Note:  Supposed to be three brothers, all names being spelled a little different with John’s being spelled Goldston.


In the Revolutionary War Records Archives in Raleigh, NC, in the Auditor’s Office dated June 28,, 1781, Hillsborough District show voucher # 268 to John Golson.  Also same district dated Aug. 6, 1782, voucher # 511 to John Golson.  John J. Goldston bought James Horn’s 160 acres on both sides of Beaver Creek, this being located east of New Hope near Wake County line.  He sold this in 1799 to Amistead Anthony and I presume he moved to east Tennessee near Knoxville.


In estimating the ages of Charles, William and John by First Federal Census, we must bear in mind that though they are given to e 1790, in many cases they were taken sometime before that date.  By the size of the families Charles must have been the oldest, born prior to 1740, William born a few years later.  John may have married late or may have been Charles’ son.


This history is not perfect and it is hoped that we will hear from those who know better and have more facts on the older generations.  With this help by the next Goldston Reunion in 1956, we will have a more complete and perfect history and have a copy filed in Archives in Raleigh and Library of Congress in Washington, DC.




This should have followed Major Andre Goldston’s history, but failed to receive it in time.  This was mailed by Laris McDonald Goldston, 1934 McCalla Ave., Knoxville, TN.  I tried to contact him this summer when I was there, but missed him.  He called recently from Knoxville and advised he was mailing a copy of his family history.  I am not sure of this family’s connection, but hope to establish it later.  He writes that he has copied from his grandfather’s Bible the list of his children, his grandfather being Wiley L. Goldston and 1st wife Miss Balew.

There is a possibility this family originate from John Goldston, Chatham Co., NC, who went west to east TN around 1800, brother to Charles and William, as Major Andre Goldston’s history refers to his family as having a son named “Rubin”.
