Dear Mrs. Hanks,
Mrs. Nelson wrote me a very long time ago, and was then an old woman. I
don't think she told me where she got the info. on Abram being s/o
Henry. I'd have to do some searching in old letters to see. As I recall
there is also an indication that Henry was father of the Abraham of
Perry Co, KY in an article in the Virginia Historical Society magazine
which ran a series of articles on the Childers family. It was also
definitely proven to me that this Abraham is NOT the Abraham 5th (V) who
many had alleged him to be. He signed his documents with a "V" which may
have been just his mark, or his middle initial, but does not stand for
the 5th. The fact that my Abraham of Perry Co, KY named a son Goldsby,
or Goolsby is strong indication that there was that surname up his
tree.i n area. Abraham Child ers, V md Elizabeth ROYALL, he was abt 10
yrs older than Abraham of Perry County, KY. Elizabeth CANNON 1st wf
of Abraham IV d. 1741/46.From Rev. War papers of Abraham we know 3
brothers were William, Henry & Moseby.

I don't believe the Abraham CHILDERS who md Elizabeth ROBERTS and lived
in Russell Co, VA, then Perry Co, KY was Abraham 5th so of Abraham &
Elizabeth (Cannon) CHILDERS. Abraham 5th married 1) Elizabeth ROYALL and
lived in Albemarle Co, VA and was at least 10 years older than braham
who md Elizabeth ROBERTS. I think Abraham of Perry Co. was s/o of Henry
& Susannah (Goolsby) CHILDERS. I am not into serious CHILDERS research,
but I have come across that suggested in something published in "The
Virginia Genealogist". I can't find it quickly and am not going to do a
search. Mrs. Nelson had said this years ago, but I went along with
others who had said that our Perry County Abraham was the Abraham 5th. I
now think that is incorrect. I can't prove who he was son of, but I
think we can prove he is not Abram 5th. ll I have from Jeanette Nelson,
2012 Willis Rd, El Cajon, CA 92020, is that she is descended from Henry
& Susannah (Goldsby) Childress, Pension Appl. S-30924 Goldsby Childers,
Lincoln Co, KY (This Goolsby d in Garrard Co KY was brother to our
Abraham CHILDERS)
I also have no proof of the 2nd marriage of Goolsby Childers, s/o Abra
ham & Elizabeth (Roberts) Childers. The 1st mrg. to Milly Johnson was
in Perry Co., but when I first wrote Mrs. Reilly she didn't know of
this 1st marriage, and had the 2nd wife, Nancy McClanahan. I don't know
where this marriage took place, or when.
