-- Introduction --
This section of our family website is about Rose's ancestors --
Golden, Cobb, Harris, Johnson, and many others -- this page is an introduction
to the Golden Family.
I am Rose Golden Schlatter -- Thelma Rose Golden,
born 9 November 1942. Daughter of Ernest Edgar Golden (1908 - 1966) and
Zelma Louise Cobb (1914 - 2003). I married Joseph A. Schlatter, Jr., 30
July 1966 in my hometown, Oxford, Alabama. We have two children -- Joseph
A. Schlatter, III, and Stephanie Hope Schlatter -- twins, born in Frankfurt,
Germany, 3 October 1968. As of April 2012, we have two grandsons (Joe
and Jackson), both
born to our son, Joe, and his wife, Rebekah.
I am one of five children born to my parents. All five of
us were born in Anniston, Alabama, and grew up in Oxford. In order of
birth we are:
Sandra Louise Golden (McPeake) -- nicknamed Sandy
Ernest E. Golden, Jr. -- nicknamed Sonny
John Raymond Golden -- John
Philip Eugene Golden -- Phil
Here is a chart showing my ancestors back several generations.
We have traced my ancestry back many more generations than this but this is all
that will fit on the page!!
As of April 2012 we have traced my Golden ancestors back
to GOLDING, RIPLEY, TUCKER, MOSS, SHARP and others in England in the mid- to
late-1500's. My more recent ancestors in the 1700's were in the Caroline
and Essex counties of Virginia. As with many Alabama families, my
ancestors started in the coastal colonies of Virginia and the Carolinas and
moved west to Georgia and Alabama for various reasons, mainly the availability
of new land in "the West."
