GOFF, RIDER, VASSEL -
I am looking for information on a James/John Goff was married to a Mary Rider and had a son Jack Goff born 1-11-1867. In information given to the funeral home for my g grandfather Jack it showed that his father was John but I got information from a Rider researcher that Jack's father was James. I know that Jack had a brother James. Jack married Bettie Rider and James his brother married a Emma Vassel. I know this family was in Bedford, Botetourt, and Allegany counties before moving toward Indiana. This is about all I have to go on and looking for anyone who might have any other information to share. I do have quite a little bit on Jack/Bettie Rider Goff family and a little on James/Emma Vassel Goff family.

TATE -
I'm trying to locate an article that sketched the life of Amanda Jane TATE, published in the "Bedford Bulletin" in the summer of 1916 (referred to in her obituary later that year). The angle was that she was one of the last surviving Bedford County women whose son had fought in the Civil War. The microfilm copy of the "Bedford Bulletin" skips the last half of 1916. Does anyone know if other copies of the newspaper exist somewhere, or where else I might look? Thanks,

GALLOWAY, LEWIS -
Interested in the Lewis and Galloway families listed on the 1790 and 1800 tax lists. I have a Thomas Lewis b.abt 1770 who married an Elizabeth Galloway in Wythe Co. VA in 1799. I do not know the parents of Thomas Lewis and would like to find them. I believe Elizabeth's father was a William Galloway. He is present on the 1800 tax list for Wythe Co. along with a Thomas and Maney Galloway. I would be interested in finding any links between these Wythe families and those in Bedford. Thanks, Mandy Colgan
