The earliest Goolsbys in our family were found in the area of "Goolsby's Creek" on the James River in Virginia; The earliest was Edward Goldsby..the next Fathers in order from past to present were: John Tarentine Goolsby..William Goolsby..Isaac Goolsby..John Mearle Goolsby (Sr.)..John Mearle Goolsby (Jr.)..John Earl Goolsby..James Earl Goolsby (Sr.)..and then myself..James Earl Goolsby (Jr.).

Our branch of the family moved from Virginia to Birmingham, Ala. in the early 1800's (there are some 65 Goolsbys listed in the current Birmingham phone book); then after the Civil War they moved to Tippah Co., Mississippi.
