22211 William H. Goad,6 ? 2221 (William,5,?William,4,?William,3,John,2,Abraham,1)
His name and existence solely from family tradition that he is the ancestor of some of the Lawrence Co, Tenn Goads, and it is
speculation that his wife was Nelly, below (or else Nelly was the widow of Thomas Goad (#241), see below)
b ca 1800; d ca 1835. (dates are approximate guesses)
m Nelly ____, b ca 1800.
? 1820 Overton Co, Tenn census, p 269, William Goard, 000100-00100.
(no evidence this is same person; another William Goad )#312) was also in Overton Co in 1820)
1830 census, family not located.
1840 Lawrence Co, Tenn census, p 139, Nelly Gourd, 0101-0220001.
1850 census, Nelly not located.
It is possible that all of the speculation about the existence of William H. and Joseph Goad is for naught, and the Goads on this
this page assigned to them are actually children or grandchildren of Thomas Goad (#241) of Maury Co, who is probably the
following listed in adjacent Giles Co, Tenn, with a younger wife who may be the above Nelly.

22212 Joseph Goad,6 ? 2221 (William,5,etc, see above)
His name and existence solely from family tradition that he is the ancestor of some of the Lawrence Co, Tenn Goads.
b ca 1805. (an approximate guess).
m Mary (Polly) Lacey, d 1897.
Joseph and Mary are not located in any census.
issue of "Joseph Goad": (see below)
No evidence that any of the individuals below are related to William H. or Joseph Goad., and no evidence even that William H.
or Joseph existed. However, some Goad family must have been in Lawrence Co early to parent these children.
These Lawrence Co Goads are divided into two groups, who appear to be two groups of siblings and the offspring of these
two elusive Goads. This page is created as a place to record the "Lawence Co, Tenn Goads", which probably include some in
Maury Co, who don't appear to be closely related to the other Maury Co Goads, especially some who are recorded as born in
Virginia. John C. Goad (#24123), b ca 1822 Va, presumed to be a probable s/o Reuben Goad, could conceivably be part of
this group instead. Richard Jackson Goad's place of birth of Virginia is also inconsistent with these other Goads. A few of the
females may not be Goads, but only presumed so.

One site on John Green's family said Sarah Goad, b ca 1819, was the sister of Lucetta Goad and that Sarah m 1840 Law-
rence Co to John Belew. John Belew not located and this may be an erroneous reference to William Ballew and wife Sarah
A. with whom Lucetta Goad (see below) was living in 1850.

222111 1. Richard Jackson (Jack) Goad, b ca 1820-21 Va, m(1) Mary E. Beckham, m(2) Adaline Elizabeth Crumpler York.
Poss from Lawrence Co, Tenn, but no proof. Also listed on page for Reuben Goad (#2412), but if Richard was b in Va,
he would not be Reuben's son.

Don't know if there is any evidence Elizabeth was a Goad, or if it was presumed since Martha was in the household:

supposedlly s/o George Lucas and Polly Lacey.
Some sources claim she was definitely a d/o Joseph Goad and Mary (Polly) Lacey. One source claims that a chancery
court record in Maury Co states that Joel Goad testified for his sister Martha Goad Lucas.

Lived in Maury Co.
24173 7. Robert M. Goad, b ca 1826-27, m Sarah Elvira (Sallie) Godwin.
He has been mistakenly identified by many (including myself) to be Robert Goad (#2464), s/o Richard Goad of Bedford
Co, Va, but the evidence seems clearly contrary to this linkage, and is discussed on their pages.
