Edmond Golden 66yrs, wife Mary 60yrs,and other
Goldens-names & ages are:Thomas-31y:Wesley-28:
Elisha-22: Edward-20. I was looking for Grimes
and saw your message. This may be a long shot for
your search but many in Clay co come from these
southern areas of Indiana.

About 1819, two brothers settled in Patoka Township....Edmond and Thomas L. Golden. They came from Kentucky (Knox Co) leaving a brother and several sisters behind.
From what I am to understand, Thomas L. Golden had a son named Edward H. Golden that lived in a spot called "Golden's Holler" in the SE corner of the county. I have hoped over the years that the remains of a small Golden cemetery would be found.
Has anyone found (or know of) any old Golden graves in this part of the county? The children of Thomas married into Morgans, and Crecelius families.
Please contact me if you have Golden roots in your tree.
