This record was transcribed some years ago by Douglass Frayser from the Goffigon Family Bible at "Millford" on the seaside in Lower Northampton Co. VA. The location of the Bible is not known at this time. The copy was submitted for compilation by Wm. B. Wilkins [our own olde ghote]. Typed by Lila H. Schmidt in January, 1989. Typed again January 5, 1998 by Barbara Cox for posting to the ghotes web. Thanks to all who participated in this record's circuitous route to the ghotes web!
