(3) Maria was originally married to Robert Golliday (Sr). They were living in Alton in the 1850 census. Robert's occupation was shown as merchant. In 1853, he was also listed as the Postmaster of the Alton P.O. Apparently Robert died and Maria married Lafayette Woodruff in November, 1856. Maria's maiden name was Postle. She died in 1872.

(4) Emily married William D. Kuykendall. She had two children before she died of childbirth complications in Vermilion County, Illinois.

NEEDED LINK

The 1850 census shows that Robert Golliday (Sr.) and his family lived beside Reuben and Eliza Golliday. Reuben was likely Robert Sr's father and the patriarch of the Golliday family of Franklin County, Ohio. Reuben was born in Virginia, but had moved to Franklin County by 1816. Reuben's tie to the Golladay family in Virginia has not yet been established.


Missing from census:

Samuel Golliday (5) 27 Farmer  
- Margaret J (Stranahan) 23    
- Harrison ~1   Born 28 April 1859

(5) Samuel was shown in the Union Civil War Draft Registrations Record in 1863 as living in Franklin County. These records state that he was born in Ohio and listed his occupation as farmer.

(7) Henry 's first wife Nancy (Ogden) died in childbirth on 27 October 1859. Henry was born in Stark County, Ohio, but his family moved to Richland County.
