      It has not been established if or how Thomas Goolsby is connected to the other Childers families. He could also be a son of Henry.

      In Franklin Co. deed index there is entry for land sale from Thomas G. Childers to Henry Childers, and another entry for a sale to Phillip Miller. Yet another sale to Eli Valentine, who married daughter Nancy.
