46.  “Family Bibles of Velenda Jennings Gooch, Lydia Gooch Bates, and Victoria Shults Gooch,” undated; abstracts from Bibles; Family records handed down from Kathleen Matheson Gooch; Files of Dayna Gooch Jacobs, King City; The first and second generations of these records detail the Silas Gooch family of Joplin, Missouri, of which I have serious doubts about the connection to Thomas Gooch of Llano County, Texas.  Therefore this casts doubt on the entire document for me.  However, in the more recent generations the likelihood of accuracy is greater because these people may have been known to the author of the abstract, so I have used some of this information with caution.  There is no indication of the form the information was found in, or whose hand it was in, etc.  Until the actual Bibles surface this data is considered unreliable.
