                                  She is not identified, and could be a previously unrecognized d/o Joshua Goad, above, although his 1830 and 1840
                                  census records don't show a daughter in that age range.  She is not located in the 1850 census.

                                  Joshua Goad's possible brothers Ephraim, John, Hiram, or Aaron, who were briefly in this area of Tenn.
