Exploring possible family relationships found in shared DNA.*
I-1 a male Golden descendant of Isaac Golden (), N-1 a male Golden descendant and N-2 a female descendant with Golden mother of Nathaniel Greene Golden (1783-aft 1822), and S-1 a male Golden descendant of Samuel Golden (1770-1857).
‘X’ indicates that Ancestry DNA matching indicates a possible relationship with a family member of ‘___’ and ‘-‘ indicates no matches found.

Why — this is important
1 – This person belongs to a set of grandparents for two or more of the test lines:
- Buckner, Richard (1658-1733) and Cooke, Elizabeth (1662-1748)
- Buckner, Margaret (1690-1760) and Taliaferro, Robert (1687-1751)
2 – Edward Gouldman (c1660-c1710) supposedly had three sons per the Winston family history, one being born after his death in Jan 1710. The son’s names are unclear: Thomas, Francis and ___. I believe that Edward is our line and a grandfather.
* A person or family appearing as a match in Ancestry does not mean that an actual relationship exists, although a DNA relationship does exist between two test takers. If someone includes incorrect info then people and families may appear which are not actually directly related to one another.
Example: One matching family history for S-1 shows a genealogy indication that Richard Golding (1744-1788) and Susannah Wilmouth (xxxx) are the parents of Samuel Golden (1770-1856). Per YDNA testing we know that the two males lines are not related.
