[1] Charles Edward Dudley, Sr., The Genealogy of Ellen Gould Harmon White (1999) makes a claim that EGW by imputing a connection of the Gould family of which she is a member, to the Gould family of Gouldtown, New Jersey, of African West-Indies descent. However, no actual evidence of this genealogy is offered. Even if we allow the possibility of a distant relation between the two families (no known connection exists), she is not in any way descended from the Goulds of Gouldstown. For further details regarding Dudley's research see Roger D. Joslyn, Gould Ancestry of Ellen Gould (Harmon) White (2002).
