Hi Mark, I have some more information on the Catn and Goff familys. Lioyd Goff has a copy of Solomon Caton will and has given it to Gean Caton Nelson another Caton reseacher who lives in New Bern NC near the home of our Caton ancestors. She has been working on this for several years and tells me she has 1750 pages which she will send to me. She has already sent 75 pages. What I know is what I have been told on the phone Solomon Caton was killed in the Cival War in Shreveport 1865- 1869. Gean tells me that Nancy Caton Goff was actually Hancy Caton Goff.

Solomons will mentions family as Charity, Sarah Vanhooser, MO [maybe Webster Co.] Elizabeth Goodson [maybe Warren CO TN.] Mary Caten, Olive Stenbridge, Hancy Goff .Charity Ann Walling Don't know if Moses and Nancy Jaco are mentioned. Brother John P. died in 1850 from a chronic illness. Sarah Caton was probably the oldest child. Robert Purser, Charitys father names his daughter Charity Caten and her daughter Sarah Caton to recieve 50 acres of land in NC. This was in 1807. I am sure Gean Caton would be glad to share anything she has with you. I am sure she would like to have your information to put in her book. In the Warren Co. census of 1830 it shows Jessee as havin 3 boys and 7 girls. This would account for all of them. If I get a copy of Solomons will I will send it to you. Sincerely, Maxine
