    I heard about this town last year while searching my Pearce/Pierce and Carter lines. Nice to be refreshed on the story.

    Am searching for the Wilson family of Gouldtown.
    Albert Wilson later moved to Pleasantville, NJ, married Hortense Babb and was a sergeant on the police force there. 1940’s-1950’s.
