Albert, I dug into my book piles and dug out That Devil Forrest: Life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest" by John Allen Wyeth. It goes into great detail about the battle of Fort Pillow. I was hoping against hope that a book with such great detail would help you out in your search for skirmishes at Golddust. TN.

Unfortunately, in spite of all the detail Golddust has nary a mention. In fact, a map of the surrounding area doesn't even show Golddust even though it was only three miles to the north. I take it to mean that the town was very small. That doesn't mean that there was never a shootout there. I wish I could have been of more help.
