Did anyone ever send you the information about where Reuben Goldston and wife Susannah Watson Goldston are buried?
I found that my brother-in-law (now deceased) mother was
descendant or Reuben and Susannah. Eva Rose Goldston married Coy Cundiff. She was daughter of Mack Goldston (wife Amanda Norman).Macdonald Goldston (various spellings) was born 27 Nov 1860 in Clinton, Anderson Co, TN - He and Amanda Norman were married in Morgan county, TN. daughter Eva Rose Goldston
was born 1904 Oakdale, Morgan Co, TN (now deceased).

Trying to find out more about Reuben Goldston. In the various census records:

1830 Anderson County, TN:
Reuben Golson
1840 Andrson County, TN
Reuben Golson and also Wm (as abbreviated in the document)
and John Goldson (so written with d )

Apparently Reuben Goldson (various spellings) was born about 1774 in North Carolina. In one piece of information from
www.worldconnect.rootsweb.com (by Merleen Gholdston)
Reuben Gholson (note spelling by herj) - possibly son of Charles Goldston of Chatham/Rutherford, NC . I believe he was probably of the Goldston's of Edgecomb area of NC by research I did in
Salisbury , NC county library. no proof.
