In an earlier case Martha A. PETTY said her husband died owning 2/9 interest in a tract of land in the 18th C.D. containing about 555 A, being the tract owned by James DOUGLASS at time of his death and on which his widow Susan resided. Intestate (Daniel PETTY) owned very little other property. Due to Civil War the slaves were freed and that caused insolvency of the estate, and the widow asked land be sold for payment of debts.

In an earlier case Martha A. PETTY said her husband died owning 2/9 interest in a tract of land in the 18th C.D. containing about 555 A, being the tract owned by James DOUGLASS at time of his death and on which his widow Susan resided. Intestate (Daniel PETTY) owned very little other property. Due to Civil War the slaves were freed and that caused insolvency of the estate, and the widow asked land be sold for payment of debts.

This John GOFF is the one who moved to GI Cty., TN and lived there through 1880. It appears he moved back to WM Cty., TN where he died, apparently to be near other relatives in his older years, as all his children had moved to more distant places, or had difficulties with those who were in TN. He appears to be a cousin of the John GOFF who mar. Susan Walker. He also appears to have had brothers who were in GI Cty. in earlier records. See John Goff of GI genealogy in the GI Cty., TN library, submitted by the compiler. I do not know if there is any connection of the Joseph Erwin of GI Cty. to the ERWINS of WM. Cty.
