Children of William and Sallie Golding:

  • Griffin Walter Golding (1886 – 1970)
  • Viola Golding (1887 – aft 1930)
  • Bill Humphrey “Umph” Golding (1889 – 1971)
  • James Ray “Ray” Golding (1895 – aft 1930; was living in Washington DC in 1930 census, listed as James R Gelding)
  • Willie May Golding (1896 – aft 1930)
  • Thelma “Sallie” Golding (1898 – 1990)
  • John Golding (1902 –after 1910; not in 1920 census)
  • Mary Golding (1904 – after 1930)

Peculiar to the 1900 census is that a Charlie Beltcher, age 8, is listed living with the family. He is listed as a ‘servant’ and as a ‘son’. He could have been the son of a servant with the Golding family, but there were otherwise only Goldings listed as living in the home. Charlie does not appear in the 1920 census.
