. Note: In his old age, Reuben said one of his daughters married ____ Brown, a Confederate soldier who died in the battle of
. Murfreesboro, but this appears to be an error, with him confusing her relationship to him.
. Following has been claimed by some websites ("Reuben" apparently confused with James J., above)
. "Reuben" Goad, b ca 1835 Maury Co, d in Civil War, m Elizabeth McCoy.
. Family tradition (by some) mixed up the names of James J. and Reuben.
. 1860 census, family not located, unless he was the R.G. Good,29 Tenn, with wife Elizabeth,25 Ill, etc in Cannon Co, Tenn.
. Some websites list his children as John R., Newton, and George W., all b in Ark, but these were the children of James J. Goad,
. Ref: 1. "The Goads A Frontier Family", 1984 and 1995, Kenneth F. Haas, p 88-91.
. Plus email correspondence.
. 2. Jody Goad's website. He has listed Newton Goad (#31131), b "1859", who m Julia Ann Bewley, as a so Reuben
. Goad, above. However that Newton Goad was b ca 1845-46 Ky, and was s/o Robert M. Goad of Monroe, Edmund-
. son, and Barren Co's, Ky. This mistake is carried by many websites. Newton J. Goad (#241242), b 1859, was the
. grandson of Reuben and the s/o James J. Goad, above.
. 3. Mike Goad's website contains Maury Co deeds transcribed by June Goad Worland.
