John GOAD was born in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co, VA 27 NOV 1700 and died 23 JUL 1771 in Bedford Co, VA, at 70 years of age.

  1. about 1723  in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co, VA to Katherine (Catherine).  She was born 1703 and died Aft. 1738 in Virginia;  there is a 1738 deed with her and John both in it. 
  2.  before 1740 in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co, VA to Ann.

(The mother of the oldest children was CATHERINE while the mother of the youngest 2 or 3 could have been ANN)

  1. JOHANNAH GOAD, b. November 01, 1723, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; d. Abt. 1773, probably Rockingham County, Virginia.
  2. ELIZABETH GOAD, b. July 12, 1726, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; d. 1799, Grayson County, Virginia.
  3. JOHN GOAD, b. July 01, 1729, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; d. Abt. 1792, Sullivan Co., VA.
  4. HANNAH GOAD, b. April 07, 1732, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia5; d. Aft. July 17716; m. WILLIAM BENNETT7; b. Abt. 17008.
  5. WILLIAM GOAD, b. March 03, 1733/34, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; d. Aft. May 1778, Pittsylvania Co., VA.
  6. ANN GOAD, b. Abt. 1737, Bedford County, Virginia.
  7. ABRAHAM GOAD, b. April 11, 1740, Luneneburg/Bedford Co., Virginia; d. Abt. 1816, Anderson Co., Tennessee.
  8. ROBERT GOAD, b. Abt. 1742, possibly Bedford Co, VA.; d. 1830, Maury Co., TN.

Notes:

  • He made a will in Bedford Co, VA, 7 JUL 1771. GOAD, John. Will pro. Jul 1771. Names wife, ann, and ch. Joanah Seviar, Elizabeth Cox, Hannah Bennett, Ann Risden, William (and his son, John), Abraham (and his son James), Robert, John (and his son Thomas). 
  •  In many pedigrees, Ann is named as Ann Isham.  However, with no documentation of the last name Isham that I know of, she is named here only as ANN. As far as I know, there are three commonly found pieces of information concerning John Goad’s second wife, Ann, that, as far as I have been able to determine, have no proof or real evidence.  The first is her maiden name as Isham, the second is a marriage date of August 11, 1734, and the third is a marriage date of August 11, 1740.  All that I have seen on Ann’s name is just that, “Ann,” which appeared in John’s will. 
  •  It is unlikely that John and Ann were married in 1734 as there is a deed in Richmond County in October 1738 in which John and his first wife, Katherine, sell 80 acres of land. I have seen no evidence on the 1740 date, though it seems more likely.  (reference Joe Payne)  The problem in the marriage dates is who is the mother for which children.
