Henry Goodloe's wife was not a Weekes actually. Here is an excerpt from the Goodloe Genealogy that addresses that question:

Goodloe Genealogy, Part B First three generations of Goodloes in Virginia Chapter II page B 12-14
"Who Was the Wife of Henry Goodloe?"
...There remains an equally interesting question, or proposition, that perhaps the Wife of Henry Goodloe was Elizabeth Weekes--this appears on Record Card # 84199 of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, Salt Lake City, Utah, and this has had special investigation in 1979, along with the LDS Family Group Chart on Abraham Weekes of Middlesex County VA and his wife Millicent showing as sources of information the Deed and Wills of Middlesex County; Christ Church Parish Register of Middlesex Co., and Virginia historical and Genealogical Magazine V. 5, pp. 168-9; with a listing of the Weekes children as follows: Catherine christened 15 Dec 1661, Francis, Mary, Lettice, Elizabeth, daughter.

To be very brief, this question of Elizabeth Weeks as the possible wife of Henry Goodloe has been settled (1979) by the retaining of a professional genealogist in Salt Lake City who made an intensive study of the various printed records and came up with a report of "overwhelming" evidence that Elizabeth Weeks could not have been Mrs. Henry Goodloe. (For this very important contribution to accuracy in the Goodloe Genealogy, grateful thanks go to Marion M. Davie9, a descendant of Parson Henry Goodloe4's son Vivian5 and his wife Dorothy Tompkins of Kentucky, who organized and paid for the special search.)

The search continues for specific documentation of the exact maiden surname of the wife of Henry Goodloe; there is always hope that someone will be able to produce acceptable documents.
