                           s/o Littleton Goad and Martha Jane Jones.  Lucy apparently d by 1865, the year Clement remarried.

6.   Henry Goad, b ca 1814-16 Tenn, m(1) Elizabeth Isham, m(2) Sarah (Sally) Roach.

               Following are unlikely sons of Ayers Goad:

  2354 ? 
8.   Ephraim Goad, b ca 1805 Tenn, d 1876, m(1) ____, m(2) Susannah W. Jester.
                     Lived in Campbell Co, Tenn, Hamilton Co, Tenn, Walker Co, Ga, and finally moved to Carroll Co, Ark.
                     No evidence that Ephraim was a s/o Ayers Goad, but more likely he was a s/o Ayer' brother
John Goad (#235).  Less likely,
                     Ephaim may be the Ephraim C. Goad, b 1815, s/o Abraham's nephew
James M. Goad (#245).

  2355 ? 
9.   Aaron Goad, b ca ?1810 Ga, d 1830's Ind, m 28 Jul 1833 Greene Co, Ind to Frances (Fanny) Jones, b ca 1818 NC, d 1856.
                     Possibly same as
Aaron Goad (#236), who previously was speculated to be a s/o Abraham Goad (#23).  More likely he
                     was s/o
John Goad (#235), prob s/o Abraham Goad (#23).  If he was the older Aaron who left records ca 1812 in White Co,
                     Tenn, he would have been born in the early 1790's, or earlier, but still could be s/o John Goad, and would have been much
                     older than his wife Frances (Fanny).

                                 lish descent.  According my recolection my father's mother's maiden name was Susannah Johnson dauter of Jacob
                                 Johnson who was said to be of Germany.  Susannah's mother was ____ ____ Margaret Pack of Ireland.   I believe this
