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.
. 1850 Giles Co census, Dist 9, p 457, #723/723, Joseph Goode,67 Va, farmer, $6000, Mary,61 Va, Martha Simpson,23 Va.
