The James Gooch Family And Their Connections

A family tree entitled Descendants Of John Johnston provided the following information regarding James Gooch and Sarah Porter, (a couple who has ties to Jim's Coleman/Kohlmann family) :

James Johnston and Jane Greer had the following child living with them [links added]:

PARTHENIA3 THORNE [Jane Greer Johnston's niece] was born on 25 Dec 1804 in Stewart County, Tennessee. She died on 02 Sep 1876 in Robertson County, Tennessee.

She married David Alexander Gooch, son of James Gooch and Sarah Porter about 1825 in Robertson County, Tennessee. He was born on 28 Jan 1803 in North Carolina. He died before 1860.

There was a link between the Johnstons and the Bell Witch legend (there's a Bell Witch Facebook page, too).
