226   Reuben Goad,5                                                                                     ?  212   (Charles,4,?John,3,John,2,Abraham,1)
.

.                 There is circumstantial evidence that Reuben was the s/o
Charles Goad (#212), since they were listed adjacently in the 1789
.                 Pittsylvania tax list and a 1798 road order, and Charles had some grandsons named Reuben, but no absolute proof.  Previously
.                 he had been considered a possible s/o
William Goad (#22).  (I have maintained his number as 226, instead of changing it to 2121,
.                 due to the difficulty of  making that change.)
