Golding / Golden / Goulding et al Family History on Facebook

Dr. Thomas Marcellus Golden Born in 1881 in Culberson, NC to Joseph Henry Golden, son of Nathaniel G. Golden. Only a few stories are known of him. He drowned while crossing a mountain steam on horseback going to tend a patient. He was a country mountain doctor as was his father, Joseph Henry Golden. Poor old Joseph died of the flu epidemic when he was just 38, while tending patients. He died in Blue Ridge and was buried there. Some say that he delivered all the babies in the mountains for miles around.
