.                   (
James Phillips (#421412) was her great nephew, s/o Thomas Phillips and Sarah Quesenberry)

.             Apparently related to James Goad, either a dau or grandau:

A1     ?  
9.   Naomi H. Goad, m Andrew Jennings.
.                   She is recorded as likely d/o
Abraham Goad (Abram) (#A), above, but no proof.

.             Probably related to James Goad, prob a grandson:

10.   Alexander H. Goad (Alex), b ca 1812-13 Va, m(1) Emma Neal, m(2) Joannah Pierson.
.                   Alexander moved to Nicholas Co, Va by 1850, and in 1860 was listed in Clay Co, Va (WVa), next to
Reuben Cox (#115),
.                   who was a brother of
Abraham Goad's (#A) 2nd wife Rachel Cock.  Alexander named a son Ballard Preston Goad, a com-
.                   mon name in the Floyd/Carroll Co families, and one of Alexander's grandsons was Alexander Hewitt Goad, possibly named
.                   after the Hughett family of Floyd Co.  So Alexander H. Goad was prob either the oldest son of Abraham Goad, or a son of
.                   one of Abraham's sisters.

.             Note: There are no documents directly proving that Aaron and Abraham Goad were the sons of James Goad.  So it is deduction
.                       that has lead to the belief that they was James' sons:
.                       1.   The only other Goad of the right age and living in that part of the country who could have been the father of Aaron was
.                             Robert Goad of Grayson Co, Va.  But Robert already has an identified son Aaron, who married Rachel Dalton.
.                       2.   Aaron and his apparent brother Abraham Goad were of Montgomery and Floyd Co, Va, same location as James.  By
.                             itself not strong proof.
.                       3.   Abraham's parentage is "proven" by the fact that James was living with Abraham's sons Aaron B. and John in the 1850
.                             Kanawha Co, Va (WVa).  James' father was Abraham and there are no Abrahams that are descendants of Robert.
.                       4.   Of course this leaves open the possibility that Aaron was son of an unmarried Goad female.
