The following individuals were married in Mississippi County, however, I have not been able to locate any additional information on them in Mississippi County.
1. James GOFORTH married Lucy Ann McCLAIN in 1858
2. Hulda GAMBREL married George HOPPER 1871
3. David W. HOPPER married Elizabeth BRISTO 1854
4. Richard STAGGS married Missouri M. BRISTOW 1868
I am searching for Thomas Jefferson GOFORTH born 1846 in Kentucky who is my gr-grandfather and I believe James Goforth and Hulda Goforth Gambrel Hopper listed above are his siblings.
It appears these members of my GOFORTH line spent some time in Mississippi County, Missouri at least between 1858 and 1871. I have also found various members of the family in Hickman, Ballard, and Carlisle Counties, Kentucky and in Dyer and Lauderdale County, Tennessee.
I have spent years tracking Thomas Jefferson Goforth trying to find his parents and I have had no success. The earliest I find him is in Lauderdale County, TN when he married Rhoda Nice Caroline STAGGS in 1868. I can not locate him or his family on the 1850 or 1860 census of any state.
Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

Does any one have any information on this family. The family moved to Lamar County, Texas about two years after the youngest daughter was born.
