~~~ 1820 Aug 7th: An Isaac Golden living at Baldwin, Georgia in 1820 census. There are two males under age 10; a female age 10-15; and two adults age 45 or older.  … Our Isaac and Ruth Sheehan Golden did have two sons under 10 (Lewis and William Harvey Golden), but there is no claimed daughter that would have been 10-15 or close to that. Also, Isaac Golden would have been approximately 35 years of age, and Ruth Sheehan was borderline on 45. Ruth is consistently 9-10 years older than Isaac in census records.[5]1820 U S Census; Census Place: Baldwin, Georgia; Page: 24; NARA Roll: M33_6; Image: 26

Richard and Susanna Golding‘s son Isaac Golding (Golden) was born c1776 and is probably the Isaac Golden living at Baldwin, Georgia in the 1820 census — that Isaac was age 45+ (c1775), whereas our Isaac was age c35. Most Golding genealogies give only Isaac Golding’s birth year and offer no more information. … There are some genealogies that claim Isaac Golding married Jane Castele (1788–) and lived life out in Ruddell , Independence, Arkansas.
