We are the only Godbey descendents living in Indiana of William Franklin Godbey (b: 1850 of Irdell Co., N.C.; d: 1900 in N.C.)and Mary Jane Albea. His parents were Edward Monroe Godbey (b: 1818 in VA, d: ?)and Matilda Horn. Edward's parents were George R. Godbey (b:abt 1795 in VA, d:?) and Elizabeth Murphy.
Wm. Franklin died in N.C. and his widow and 6 of his 7 children traveled to Indiana in 1900 to settle in and around Pendleton (Madison CO.), IN. One, Elizabeth, married and remained in Iredell Co., N.C.
Am looking for descendents of Edward Monroe Godbey (b: 1 Dec 1818, m: 22 Mar 1845 in Davie Co., N.C.).

Hi Hugh! Thanks for our first comment.

If you are a Godby descendend from the Davie Co., NC Godbys we would very much like for you to join the DNA Project. Of the 3 areas of early Godby settlement, we have no member for Davie Co.

Yes, I am a direct descendent of Edward Monroe Godbey, my g-g-grandfather, who was born in VA, but settled and married in Davie Co., N.C. My g-grandfather, his son, William Franklin Godbey lived and raised his children in Iredell Co., N.C. nearby or adjacent.
I would be willing join the DNA Project.

I grew up in WV. There were a lot of Godbey's in that area of the state... near Charleston. I also have a blog (horror). My dad is really in to the geneology thing. Nice blog you have here!

I'm the great granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson Godbey born 1875 to Joshua l. Godbey and Emily Wesley. I have been unable to find any record of Thomas Jefferson with Joshua and Emily but his death certificate have them listed as his parents. I would be very pleased if anyone has information on this family, to hear from them.

My husband is a descendant of Thomas Jefferson Godbey 1875 and Lillie May Flippo who came to Texas. Thomas was the son of Rev Joshua Linsey Godbey and Sarah Randolph. Joshua was married to Emily also but she was not Thomas' mother. Thomas Jefferson Godbey is buried in Denison Texas at Cedarlawn Cemetry.
