(4) William3 GOAD, (Abraham2 GOAD, Richard1 GOURD) was born in Aug 1693 in North Farnham, Richmond Co., Va, and about 1712, married (11) MARY. William died on Jan 18, 1731/1732 in Henry Co., Va. MARY died on Jan 20, 1734/1735. William Goads's birth is recorded in the parish register. Also his married to a Mary (surname unknown). For some curious reason, he was not mentioned in William Smyth's will although it may be he was named for his step-grandfather. This William pre-deceased his father, Abraham. Only two references are found in the Richmond County deed books. The first is the conveyance by him and Abraham to William Downman in 1724, mentioned before. The second was under date of December, 1729 when William Goad of Richmond County conveyed to William Downman a tract of 45 acres being a part of the land William lived on and being from the western most side of his plantation. William died January 18, 1732 according to the parish register. The same source gives the death date of his wife Mary as January 30, 1735. No clue has been found as to the identity of his wife but the birth dates of their two children are found in the parish register. Children: 12 + Ann4 GOAD b. Feb 13 1712+ 13 + William GOAD b.

William died on Aug 6, 1753 in Richmond Co., Va. A SOUTHERN BRANCH OF THE LAWRENCE FAMILY by Wm. Pritchett Pg. 15. Hannah, wife of Tobias Phillips, m/2 Wm. Dodson of Richmond Co., VA about 1748. They had no children. Dodson's will probated 6 Aug 1753 and witnessed by Thomas Lawrence.... It is mentioned that Elizabeth Dale, the younger daughter of Reuben Dale and Elizabeth Simmonds married William Dodson. I am not sure that this is the William Dodson but the time and ages would fit perfectly. No children of this marriage in these records. (6) John3 GOAD, (Abraham2 GOAD, Richard1 GOURD) was born Nov 27, 1700 in North Farnham, Richmond Co., Va, and married (22) CATHERINE. John died on Jul 23, 1771 in Bedford Co., Va. CATHERINE died after 1738.

Mar 3 1733+ This is taken from Sevier Family History page 526-527. Louis C. Goad, vice president of General Motors, says his grandfather told him their family were both planters and merchants in Virginia. His great-great-grandparents were John Goad and Polly Moody; his Great-grandparents, Willaim Goad and Jennie Allison; his grandparents,Thomas Goad and Elizabeth Bundy, and, with their families, came down the Ohio River by flatboat. The brother settled in Southern Ohio. Thomas settled in Posey Co., Ind., on a tract of land bounded by the White River on the west and the Ohio River on the south. He built and donated the first schoolhouse in Posey County. He was a farmer and also had a large wagon and furniture building business. Louis' parents were William Goad and Mary Katherine French. William was in the millworking business. Ken Haas disagrees with the account above and says that Catherine is the mother of the first five children and presumably of the last three as well. Mike Goad's page has the first five children born to John and Katherine GOAD He also married on Aug 11, 1740 in Brunswick, Va, (23) Ann ISHAM who was born about 1699 in North Farnham, Va.

Abraham died on Jul 13, 1779 in Pittsylvania Co., Va. Abraham Goad of Pittsylvania County, Virginia p.10. His father left him a tract of land but there is no record in the deed indices of his selling it. His wife, named Joanna, appeared in the parish register in recording the birth of their eldest child. Abraham sold his other land to his brother, Peter and probably left Richmond County after the birth of the first child in 1736. He was probably in Pittsylvania County, VA, when the county was formed in 1767. He appears in the order books of the county as early as 1769. Abraham wrote his will (signing it by the mark "A") on July 13, 1779 and it was proved September 21, 1779 and probated in Deed Book 5, page 451. He left his daughters one shilling each and his son, William, one shilling. His land he devised to his sons, Robert and Abraham. His wife, Joannah, is not mentioned in the will so it is presumed that she predeceased him. Land grant records at the Virginia State Library in Richmond record that in 1769, Abraham Goad of Pittsylvania County received a grant of 374 acres on Frying Pan Creek, adjoining Dalton. Two of his grandsons, sons of Robert, would later marry Dalton sisters. Other than the above, almost nothing of the life of this Abraham Goad is known. Without the wills of Abraham, John and their father, we would know little about the Goad family prior to 1780. Abraham is referred to today by those who research the family as "Pittsylvania Abe." There is some reason to believe that he lived for a time in Price William Coiunty after he left Richmond County and before he settled in Pittsylvania. The will does not mention his wife Joannah, so it is assumed that she had predeceased him; it does list nine children, all of whom were bequeathed one shilling, excepting Robert and Abraham who were devised the land.
