Just learned from a death certificate that my Mariah Goulding (Golden/Golding/Goulden, etc) was really Mariah RIGSBY Goulding. She was born ca 1818 in GA and married Thomas Goulding around 1838, probably in GA. They lived in Lumpkin, Stewart Co, GA until Thomas' death between 1870 and 1880. She then moved to Freestone Co TX with son, John H Goulding and is shown in his home on that 1880 TX census. Apparently, Thomas has died before the TX move as he is not shown on that 1880 Tx census.
Thomas, Mariah, and children are on the Stewart Co GA census records shown below.

I descend from this Goulding line and we have always spelled the name GOULDING. However, apparently it has been identified with several spellings thru the years.
There are several Goulding/Golden/Golding, etc families in Liberty Co GA but don't know enough to connect them.
Can anyone help with this family? Need to learn who Mariah's parents & siblings were, exactly where and when she was born, etc. I really need some new leads to follow.
Thanks for any help/information,
