1725 – Virginia – William M. Golden, b. 1725/VA, d. 1801/Lincoln Co., GA, married “Polly” Turner. His father was a William and grandfather was John. In a 1801 deed this John said that Nancy Golding was his granddaughter who just married Mark Golden. John left her 1/3 of his property. Mark is listed as marrying Nancy Parks in their family bible, so she may have been a Parks widow. // Source
