Additonal Notes on Goldman Biffle:

  • 1830 U.S. Federal Census, Fayette County, Georgia, M19-17, p. 32.
  • 1840 U.S. Federal Census, Maury County, Tennessee, p. 4

  • 1860 U.S. Federal Census, Jamestown, Smith County, Texas, M653, Roll 1305, p. 60. He is listed as a farmer with $300 in real estate and $4500 of personal property; on the 1860 Slave Census for Smith County, Goldman Biffle holds 4 slaves: female age 40; male age 16; male age 10; female age 8

  • May 1856, Mrs. Goldman Biffle was allowed $50 for use and benefit of her son who is insane and helpless until "next January, $25 now, $25 in 3 month," Smith County, Texas, County Commissioners County Minutes, Volume B, pg. 176, May Term 1856. I assume this is for Barkley. Does anyone know what happened to him? He doesn't appear in the 1860 U.S. Census with his parents.
