2221   William Goad,5                                                                                ?   222   (William,4,William,3,John,2,Abraham,1)
.                 b .......; prob d by 1803.
.                 m 19 Jan 1797 Bedford Co, Va to his father's 1st cousin Nancy Goad, d/o
Robert Goad (#24).                  

.                 1801 Bedford Co tax list, William Goad.
.                 1803 Bedford Co tax list, Nancy Goad.

.                 Some sources have claimed that William was William H. Goad and his widow Nancy and children lived in Lawrence Co, Tenn.
.                 However the following census records show this Nancy "Goad" was actually a Todd (her last name in the 1830 census could
.                 on first glance be read as "Goad" but comparing to other T's and G's on that page, it is clearly Todd, and unquestionably Todd
.                 in 1840):
.             ?  1830 Lawrence Co, Tenn census, Nancy Goad not located, but Nancy Todd (clearly Todd) is listed in Lawrence Co, p 312,
.                          0012-0021001.  (this may be the source of Nancy Goad's supposed listing in Lawrence Co, with "female age 40-50, and 3
.                          sons and 3 dau's, all b after 1810")
.             ?  1840 census, Nancy Goad not located., but Nancy Todd (clearly Todd) is listed in Lawrence Co, p 115, 11-00012001.
.                          (this is prob the Nancy Todd,62 SC, listed in 1850 Lawrence Co census)

.                 Following are reputed Lawrence Co, Tenn Goads, whose very existence and parents are unproven:

.             ?  
1.   William H. Goad, supposedly b ca 1800 and m Nelly ____.
.                       The Nelly Gourd in Lawrence Co, Tenn in 1840 was apparently the widow of
Thomas Goad (#241).
.                       No record of William H. Goad, other than family tradition.
.                       Acc to some sources he was the father of
William H. Goad (#2419), b Oct 1834 Tenn, m Sarah Jane Brashears Wilbourn.
.                       More likely this younger William H. Goad was a s/o
Thomas Goad (#241).

.             ?  
2.   Joseph Goad, supposedly b ca 1805 and m Mary Lacey (Polly), d 1897.
.                       No record in the census' of Joseph or Mary.  Some of the Lawrence Co, Tenn Goads were supposedly their children, such
.                       as
Richard Jackson Goad (Jack) (#24126), b ca 1820-21 Va.  He was probably a ggs/o Robert Goad (#24), and he is
.                       listed on the page for
Thomas Goad (#241), along with many other Maury Co, Tenn Goads with unidentified ancestry.

.                 Misc records for a Joseph Goode who lived in Giles Co, which was adjacent to Lawrence Co, Tenn.  This is definitely not a
.                 Goad family:
.                 1820 Giles Co census, p 9, Joseph Goode, 00010-10010-04.
.                 1830 Giles Co census, p 210, Joseph Goode Esq, 0000001-0010001.
.                 1840 Giles Co census, p 101, Joseph Goode, 00000001-00000001.
