Christopher Goodman

This information is contributed by Virginia Ring

Christoph Guthman (later translated as Christopher Goodman) came around 1745 to Salisbury NC 
His name is in the Organ church Book as being one of the Men starting the church in 1774. 
There are several baptism records of Goodmans listed. I have a two page history of their travels 
from Penn to NC. “German Soldiers” gallantry were described in the records of the French and 
Indian War, the Revolutionary War and the Civil war. The Goodman “fighting men” were mostly 
privates and sergeants with one colonel listed. More than one-Half of the males in Rowan county 
were in the civil War and included many of the Goodman men.

I would like to find more on this journey. How do I do this?
