  • Notes 
    • The Southern Literary Messenger, 1839, Vol. 5, Pg. 293, lists William Goolsby as the longest lived person on record from Albemarle Co., Va. His wife is listed as living to 105 years old.

      The 1810 Census for Albemarle Co., lists a William Goolsby as living in the region of the county called St. Anne's Parish. It could be that he is buried at that parish churchyard, or perhaps on his land nearby. In any case during the 1810 census he would have been 100 years old.

      There is a great Obituary from the Richmond Times Dispatch about Mr. Goolsby. [1]
