I am also looking for Goodwins. William Goodwin who later (1830) was located in St. Clair County, Alabama, gives his place of birth as North Carolina. He had at least three brothers, John, Isaiah, and Remember S. Goodwin. William was born about 1800. John (my ancestor) was born in 1805. I am not sure if they were from Wake County, but it is one of the possibilities. I think they went from North Carolina to South Carolina, on to Georgia, and finally to Alabama. There were also other Goodwins with them who were related in some way--Thomas Goodwin and Mary Goodwin Wilson. My ancestor John stayed in Alabama, living in Randolph County (which later became Cleburne County)until his death in 1865. I know a good bit about him, but not who his parents were. I would be interested in finding out whatever you know about the Wake County Goodwins. Thanks.
