      -Carla Goodloe

      Lived in Spotsylvania County, Virginia after 1720 but came from Middlesex County, Virginia.

      Chapter II of The Goodloe Book; contains a will of Henry, land holdings (1700-1741), and children as recorded in 1899 books of Judge John Duncan Goodloe, Sr. of White's Station, Kentucky. Will dated 25 Nov 1748. 2 May 1749 admitted to record. Widow renounced provisions making son Robert, executor. (Will Book A 1722-1749; p. 496)

      Plantation minus slaves stayed in the hands of the Goodloes (Philip Carroll Goodloe, last owner) until 1910 when a Durrett bought it. Two of Henry's daughters married Durrett brothers so technically it was still in the family though indirectly. Philip sold and moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia in order to provide better schooling for his children. Philip's descendents were still in Fredericksburg, Virginia in 1977 and the owner of the plantation home was Richard T. Young at this time. Paul M Goodloe visited the old plantation 1 May 1977.

      Information also recorded by Judge John Duncan Goodloe, Sr in 1899 notebooks, White's Station , Kentucky.

      Henry's daughters are in Goodloe Book Chapter VI.

      LDS data indicates death date as 25 Nov 1748 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia Unsure where April 1749 comes from.
