I am seeking feedback/clarification on what I have been able to determine about the union(s) of Susannah Burwell, b. abt. 1704, p.b. Gloucester, VA, daughter of Maj. Lewis Burwell and Martha Lear, and Samuel Goode II, b. abt. 1700 at Whitby, VA, d. 1797 in Prince Edward Co., VA, son of Samuel Goode I and Martha Jones, grandson of John Goode and Martha Frances Mackarness.
Samuel Goode is also supposed to have married a Miss Gaines.
I have listed the results of my research below, and would appreciate any input from members of this forum.
G. Brown Goode listed Samuel's wife as a Miss Burwell, but in Perrin's History of Kentucky (1886, p. 891), the biography of Samuel Goode listed her as a Mrs. John Burwell. A notation in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) files in Washington lists her as Susannah Burwell. The Perrin account would suggest she was a widow at the time she married Samuel; if G. Brown Goode and the DAR notations are correct, she could have been the daughter of John Burwell. I am inclined to believe that her maiden name was Burwell since several of Samuel's descendants were given the name of Burwell. Samuel's son, Samuel, named one of his sons Burwell, and at least two of this Samuel's grandsons carried the name (Source: Kentucky Cousins, Cecil Goode, pp. 52-53).
John Burwell, b. 22 Nov 1692, p.b. Milford, New Haven, CT, d. 20 Aug 1721
Parents: Samuel Burwell, Susannah Newton, daughter of Roger Newton and Mary Hooker
Siblings: Susannah Burwell
Wife: Susannah Baldwin
Children: John Burwell
My records show the son of Samuel Goode, Samuel Goode II settled in Prince Edward County. I suspect he married a daughter of Samuel Gaines (Prince Edward Deed Book, 31 Aug 1764) [Source: Letter from Richard Bland, Richmond, VA, 9/18/01].
I have additional information regarding Susannah Burwell, Samuel Goode, Miss Gaines and their children, but cannot untangle the web of conflicting data.
Any input/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
