Thomas, a brother of old man Stephen, married I do not know whom but he had a son named Thomas, who married Nancy Gasque. The fruits of this marriage were a daughter, who married a Mr. Harrington, I think, of Georgetown ; and sons, Asa Godbold, Jehu, Robert, Thomas, Alexander, Charles, Thomas and William H., and another daughter, named Martha Ann. Thomas Godbold, the father of these latter, died in 1836 or '7.
...
The third son of the old first John was named Thomas, and he had a son named Thomas. This latter Thomas was the father of Asa Godbold (senior), of whom we have already had something to say. It seems that this last Thomas had seven sons, who have already been named only three of them were married; Asa (senior), Robert and William H. ; the others lived in single blessedness, and they are all dead, leaving no representatives. Robert married and died, leaving only a daughter. Of Asa. (senior) and his family, we have already spoken. The only one not yet noticed is William H., the youngest ; he was a doctor, and a most excellent and worthy man ; he married, first, a Miss Mendenhall, of North Carolina ; she died in about a year, leaving no offspring; after the usual lapse of time in such cases, the Doctor married a second time, a Miss Hunt (Mary E.), from about High Point, N. C, a highly accomplished lady— woman of a fine and a cultivated mind. By her the Doctor had four children, two sons, Thomas N. and William H., and two daughters, Mattie and Mary L,. ; the Doctor died when these children were all small ; the mother, with the courage of a Spartan, with her limited means, raised her children respectably, and gave them all a fairly good education; she is yet living. After some years she married Captain J. C. Finklea (Confederate), by whom she had one child, a son; who died, however, at the age of four or five. The eldest son, Thomas N. Godbold, married on the loth January, 1888, the youngest daughter, Mary, of the writer. She has three children living, Thomas Carroll, Anna and Mary E. The second son of Dr. W. H. Godbold, who was named for his father, married, about 1886, a Miss Mattie Beaty, daughter of Hon. James C. Beaty, of Horry County. About seven years ago, he disappeared from home, and has not been heard of since; he left his wife and four small children, two sons and two daughters ; his wife and the children are doing fairly well. Dr. Godbold's oldest daughter, Mattie, married J. E. Stevenson; she died three or four years ago, and left three children, two sons and a daughter ; Mary L., the youngest daughter of the Doctor, married Richard Davis, below Marion ; they are doing very well.
