www.familysearch.org lists a few people with surname Godfrey on the 1860 and 1880 census in Loudon County, VA.

William, Elizabeth, Travis, Mary E.

Do you recognize these names?

There's some of their marriages listed also.

It's spelled "Loudoun" by the way.

Funny you should mention that, as the nationally famous radio announcer Arthur Godfrey actually lived on a farm in Loudoun County back when it was rural, and the local airport is named after him.

Arthur Godfrey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't know how much you know about Loudoun County, but it's completely different today. It has one of the highest average household incomes in the entire USA, and a few years ago it had the fastest-growing population of any County in the entire USA. The school system cannot keep up with the booming growth. There are branches of at least 5 colleges there. The western part of the County is still zoned very rural, and has the Catoctin mountains.
