2419 13. William H. Goad, b 6 Sep 1834 Lawrence Co, Tenn, m Sarah Jane Brashears Wilbourn.
. He has been claimed to be a s/o William H. Goad, but this Williams' existence is questionable.
. 1850 census, William not located.
. Lived in Lawrence Co, Tenn.
. Note: It has been speculated that the ancestor(s) of the Lawrence Co, Tenn Goads was William H. Goad, with estimated dates
. of b ca 1800, d 1835, and who had wife Nelly ____, b ca 1800, and/or Joseph Goad, with estimated (guess) birth year of
. ca 1805, who m Mary (Polly) Lacey, d 1897. Neither William H. or Joseph are located in the census records. If either of
. those two existed, then they could be other sons of Thomas Goad, above, and hence the father(s) of some of the unidenti-
. fied Goads below. One line of speculation was that there was a Nancy Goad in Lawrence Co, who may have been the
. widow of William Goad (#2221), who conceivably could have been the father of William H. and Joseph, if they existed.
. However, the Nancy "Goad" in the 1830 and 1840 Lawrence Co census' was clearly Nancy Todd.
. Other Maury/Lawrence County Goads, probably descendants of Robert Goad Sr (#24), through Thomas Goad, above, or
. Robert Goad Jr (#244) or Reuben Goad (#2412). Richard Jackson (Jack) Goad and John C. Goad, below, were apparently
. born in Virginia, acc to the census records, so may have no connection to Thomas Goad's family, unless he or one of his sons
. briefly returned to Virginia about 1820. Thomas isn't located in 1820. There are so many unknown Goads in the Maury Co
. area, b in the 1820-1836 range, that there must be one or more unknown Goad males, possibly son or sons of Thomas, and/or
. Goad children born out of wedlock to one or more mothers. No clues in the 1820-40 census'.
. (Ken Haas doesn't believe that Joshua, Robert M., or Newton are sons of Thomas.):
24126 1. Richard Jackson Goad (Jack), b ca 1820-21 Va, m(1) Mary E. Beckham, m(2) Adaline Elizabeth Crumpler York.
. Moved to Marion, Carroll, and Boone Co's, Ark.

. Moved to Jefferson and Franklin Co's, Ky.

. 1830 census, Andrew not located.
. Supposedly left a will in Maury Co in the 1830's.
24172 4. Joshua Goad, b ca 1828-32 Tenn, m Emily A. Grant.
. 5. Susan Martha Goad, b ca 1826 Va, m 30 Oct 1841 Maury Co to Robert C. S. McClure (Bob), b ca 1812 NC.

24173 6. Robert M. Goad, b ca 1826-27 Tenn (or Va), m Sarah Elvira Godwin (Sallie).
. He had been mistakenly thought by many (including myself) to be Robert Goad (#2464), s/o Richard Goad of Bedford Co,
. Va, but the evidence is clearly contradictory to this linkage, and is discussed on their pages.
. He was listed next door to Mary E. Gourd,14 Tenn, below.
. 7. Wiley Goad, b ca 1833-34 Tenn, m Sarah H. ____, b ca 1831 Ala.
. Possibly not a s/o Thomas, Reuben, or Robert Jr, and listed here since he was born in "Murray" Co, Tenn (see below).
. Also poss the (son) Goad, b ca 1830-35, s/o George W. Goad (#2261).
. 1850 Crawford Co, Ark census, Richland Twp, p 323, #95/95, Wiley Goard,16 Tenn, living with James and Rebecca Goad.

. ? 11. Elizabeth (?Goad), b ca 1824 Va, apparently d 1850's, m James H. Gregory, b ca 1819 Va.
. Don't know if there is any evidence Elizabeth was a Goad, or if it was presumed since Martha Gourd was in the household:
