.                         3.   
www.findagrave.com, info by Dorothy Duke Rhodes: William A. Goad was born in Greene County, Indiana about
.                               1829 and was listed in the 1850 Federal Census in Murray County, Georgia. On the 13th of July 1856, in Benton (now
.                               Calhoun) County, Alabama, he married Elizabeth Jackson, daughter of Clark William Jackson and Jane Creacy Rey-
.                               nolds. By 1860, he had settled his family in Walker County, Alabama, where on the 29th of January 1864, he enlisted
.                               as a private in Company H, 1st Regiment of the Alabama & Tennessee Independant Vidette Cavalry at Bridgeport,
.                               Alabama.  He was described as being 29 years old, with dark complexion, black hair & eyes, standing 6 ft 1 in tall. He
.                               very likely was of Cherokee descent, through his mother, Eliza Nicholson Goad. In March of 1864, while on leave to
.                               move his family north, he was captured by the Confederate Home Guard. He was held for 6 months at the jail in Jas-
.                               per, Alabama. On 10 September 1864, at the order of Captain Goodwin, he was taken from the jail to South Lowell,
.                               which is a little north of Jasper, where he was blindfolded, shot and buried.  He and Elizabeth had four children; Elsie
.                               Clementine, William A. Jr, Nancy Jane and Wilborn Dallas Goad. Wilborn Dallas was born two months after his
.                               father's execution.  Elizabeth's efforts to obtain a pension came to the attention of Congressman Joe Wheeler, who took
.                               her appeal to the floor of the House of Representatives, and who was, perhaps, instrumental in having William A
.                               Goad's remains moved to Corinth National Cemetery.  I, Dorothy Duke Rhodes, am proud to be the great grand-
.                               daughter of William A Goad's eldest daughter, Elsie Clementine and her husband, Craven Rowlin Tidwell.
