Richard Golden of County Tyrone, born c1746, YDNA says
Updated 2021.06.13 — NEWSFLASH!! BIG Y testing shows that the lines of Richard Golden, born c1746, and Mark Golden, born c1762, share a common father or grandfather. No name is known yet, so we will call him by his Terminal SNP name: Grandfather G-FTA59516 Golden … =^)
Note: It is most probable that Richard Golden was born in the upper Savannah River area. Georgia at this time consisted primarily of settlement only along the Savannah River (after 1732-1740s) from the village of Savannah up through Augusta and then onward to modern Wilkes County near to today’s intersection of South Carolina and Tennessee.
It is also possible that he was born in Virginia and migrated to the upper Savannah area, around what is today Wilkes and Lincoln counties. Settlement of Georgia did not begin in earnest until after 1732, but most settlement in the upper Savannah River region did not occur until the 1740s.
DNA-testing and other Golden genealogies indicate that he was related to Goldens born in America at least a generation before his birth.
