Each year the Golden family gathers in Kentucky to reunite. 2013 was the 17th reunion.
This branch of Goldens descend from Richard Golden, born c1740 at County Tyrone, Ireland. Goldens from other branches have been welcome to participate in the past.
Bill Golden sez: the more Goldens you know the more folks you have helping you work on your own family history. The organizer of this event is Carol Golden — she and I have worked well together over the years to swap info and to get Goldens to their respective branches, not an uncommon problem when Goldens share common first names and lived their lives in very close proximity to one another.
