. 1870 Pulaski Co, Va census, Wassie Twp #3, p 37, #15/14, Eliza Goard,17 Va, living with Isabel J. Wallus,25 Va, William S.,
. 4 Va. (this is apparently Isabella Wallace,15 Va, d/o Christopher and Martha R. Wallace in the 1860 Pulaski Co census)
. Probably closely related to Abraham Goad, possibly a son, or s/o one of Abraham's sisters:
R 20. Alexander H. Goad (Alex), b ca 1812-13 Va, m(1) Emma Neal, m(2) Joannah Pierson.
. Moved to Nicholas and Clay Co's, Va (WVa).
. In 1860, Alexander was living in Clay Co, Va (WVa), listed next to Reuben Cox (Cock) (#115), the brother of Abraham's
. 2nd wife Rachel Cock. Other circumstantial evidence that Alexander was related to the James/Abraham Goad family is that
. he named a son Ballard Preston Goad, a common name in the Floyd/Carroll Co area. And one of Alexander's grandsons was
. Alexander Hewitt Goad, prob named for Abraham's 1st wife's family, although spelled differently. Also, Rachel Goad Keith,
. Abraham's daughter, moved to Clay Co, Va (WVa) in the 1850's, and was listed one page away from Alexander in 1870 and
. two pages away in 1880. Also, in the 1910 census, Alexander's grandson "Jerimiah" Goad (prob Jackson Norvel Goad
. (Jack) (#R25)) was living with William Fred Cox (#1141) (s/o Abraham's prob 2nd cousin Valentine Cox (Cock)) in 1910.
