Great hearing from you. Not sure if Catherine's maiden name was Goff, but can't be sure. However, she was definitely mother of Henry and Asariah. She was also mother to Alva Goff and George Huggins.
No, we other researchers don't believe James was truly Azariah nor Henry M's father. Actually, I have another Henry M. relative you can reach out to. If you'll send me an email to: email@example.com
(that's me), I'll introduce you to her and it'll be easier to communicate. The two of us have done a lot of research togeher. She is from SC. I currently live in NC, but was born in SC - where are you?
