I am related through Elizabeth McClain Goodwin and some information on her family. The only children I have been able to determine she and Sherley Goodwin had were 2 boys and 1 girl. 1. William McClain Goodwin, b. abt 1821, married 1) Elizabeth Speer and 2) Sarah ?. He can be found in the 1880 Trinity Co.,TX census records. 2. Joseph Goodwin - b. abt 1826, possibly found in 1880 in Johnson Co., TX married to Lucinda J. 3. Jane Goodwin, b. abt 1827. I haven't been able to find any other information on her.
I have seen information that Sherley Goodwin was the son of Henry Goodwin and Sarah Jane Kennedy. I've found 2 possible other children of theirs...Anna Goodwin Ritter and George Goodwin. George has been found in Angelina & Cherokee counties. There was also a Robert Goodwin that appears in the Census Report of Tenehaw, 1835 and would assume another son or possibly nephew. I personally haven't documented this information.
To date, I haven't seen any relation to the McFaddin line. If you can find a connection, I have McClain information tp add to your line. In case it helps, here are some counties I've found the McClains in assuming they all moved together:
Franklin & Lincoln Co., TN
Itawamba & Hinds Co., MS
I was told Wilkes Co., GA but haven't found anything yet.
The other family names connected to the McClains: Hodges,Roundtree, and Kerr.
Hopefully one of the names or places will ring a bell. Let me know if you're able to make the connection. I also own the following books if you'd like a lookup: 1850,60,70,80,1900,1910, & 1920 Shelby Co. census; Trinity Co. Cemeteries; Trinity Co. Beginnings
Good luck with your search!
