.               of J. & E., J. Hewett brother".  John's and Elizabeth's dau Nancy Goad was listed in Elizabeth's estate settlement in the 1870's
.               in Hancock Co, Ill, and was living there in 1880, so the 1854 death record couldn't be Nancy's.  Naomi's name has been confused
.               with Sarah by some sources, who list
Ransom Dickens' (#13) wife as Naomi Sarah Hughett, but the census records clearly
.               show them to not be the same person.

.               thy in the 1860 census, and "Nancy Goad" was listed in Nancy's mother Elizabeth's 1871 estate settlement.  Some sources list
.               Nancy's husband as
Reuben Goad (#A9), but he m Nancy J.  Bishop.  Timothy had m(1) 7 Dec 18943 Carroll Co to Matilda
.               Shinnault, b ca 1823-24 Grayson Co, d 1857, bur in Goad/Green  Layman Cem, age "34".  Nancy m(2)

.               Sarah Ann Akers Spence.  Nancy d 1870's Mo acc to some sources, but this is obviously wrong, as she was listed in the 1880
