Apparently related to James Goad, either a dau or grandau:
A1 ? 9. Naomi H. Goad, m Andrew Jennings.
She is recorded as likely d/o Abraham (Abram) Goad (#A), above, but no proof.
Probably related to James Goad, prob a grandson:
R ? 10. Alexander H. (Alex) Goad, b ca 1812-13 Va, m(1) Emma Neal, m(2) Joannah Pierson.
Alexander moved to Nicholas Co, Va by 1850, and in 1860 was listed in Clay Co, Va (WVa), next to Reuben Cox (#115),
who was a brother of Abraham Goad's (#A) 2nd wife Rachel Cock. Alexander named a son Ballard Preston Goad, a com-
mon name in the Floyd/Carroll Co families, and one of Alexander's grandsons was Alexander Hewitt Goad, possibly named
after the Hughett family of Floyd Co. So Alexander H. Goad was prob either the oldest son of Abraham Goad, or a son of
one of Abraham's sisters.
