Happy to correspond with you. Have been researching this line for 30 years and still unable to prove his children.

See Index of the Land Claim Certificats of the Middlesex Militamen Who served in the War of 1812-1814; pages 1013-1014 RG9 vol. 20, p. 28; (Elijah Goff) Flank Co., 1st Reg. Middlesex Militia (transcribed; London Leaf, vol. 22, #3, Aug. 1995).

Elijah Goff is listed on the Petition of Colonel Talbot to Loyal and Patriotic Society, with list of persons plundered at and near Port Talbot; dated at York, 1814 (From report of Loyal and Patriotic Society, pp 384-387) - Item 38. Elijah Goff, a wife and six children.. He is given next to Dute Underwood and Jarvis Phair (this may be Jarvis Thayer and may have a relationship to the Goff - Thayer marriage at Malahide A David Goff married Mary Ann Thayer at Malahide 3 Dec. 1839. In the 1828 Upper Canada Militia Rolls, Jarvis Thayer is at Yarmouth Twp. , over 40 since he is is the reserves.) - from The Talbot Regime, C. O. Ermatinger, p. 341-343

Upper Canada Land records show that he was given land at Dunwich Township, which is now a part of Elgin County, Ontario. This would have been the London District of Upper Canada in 1825. He was given the North half of Lot 29 on Concession 2 of Dunwich Township. [check abstracts for later owners and transfer deeds.]
