1820 – Abbeville, South Carolina – The only formal reference that I know of to Lurana Susan Chiles Golding‘s existence was her father Nimrod Chiles’ LWT in 1805 and its probate in 1820. Most genealogies list only her birth year.
Reuben Griffin Golding, 1778–1834, of Newberry and Abbeville, South Carolina, was the son of Reuben Golding, 1741–1835, and Margaret Peggy Griffin, 1761–1837. This line descends from William Golding, c1704 VA – 1782 SC, and Elizabeth Foster, c1704 VA – 1775 SC.
