I own a copy of "The Story of the Myricks" by Allie Goodwin Myrick Bowden. The book has extensive passages on both the John Myrick you mentioned as well as the Goodwin lineage.
On p 46, the will of John Myrick, whose wife was Amy Goodwin, names the following:
Daughters: Martha Norton, Elizabeth Greene, Lucy Jackson Clements, Amy Parham
Son: John Fletcher Myrick
Grandsons: John M. Freeney, Benjamin Myrick, Goodwin Myrick, William Myrick, John Myrick
Daughter-in-law: Martha Myrick (she was the wife of Goodwin Myrick, a son of John who had died in 1831 and mother of the four Myrick grandsons named above.)
Another son, Jordan Myrick, had died in SC in 1834.
Further on page 42, it lists John Myrick in the 1800 census of Franklin Co. NC where both John and Amy were the adults over 45 years of age. She is thought to have died between 1800 and 1806. Would this still make since for her to be a half sister to your David Goodwin if she was that much older than he? I suppose it is possible.
Also on page 42, a Theophilus Goodwin JUNIOR and his wife Rebecca are among those buying and selling land in Franklin Co. NC from/to John Myrick. Theophilus Goodwin Jr. is said in the book to be among those either related to or closely associated with the family of John Myrick in Baldwin Co. GA in later years.
On Page 126, it is shown that Amy Goodwin was the daughter of Thomas7 Goodwin and wife Theodosia, son of Captain John6 Goodwin, son of Peter5, son of Major James4 Goodwin, son of Peter3 Goodwin, son of Robert2 Goodwin, son of Henry1 Goodwin. That being said, on the next page, the author states, "Until there is authentic proof that Amy Goodwin Myrick was the daughter of Thomas7 Goodwin, it seems wise to include the following line published by the William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. 18, p 68, October 1899:" wherein it shows Amy as the daughter of Thomas3 Goodwin and wife Martha Thweatt.
I'll leave it for you to figure out which, if either, is right, or if your theory is the correct one.
Best wishes for success in your research!
