I'd like to talk to anyone with information about George
GOODWIN, who lived on Fairforest Creek in Union Co., SC, in
the 1770s. Much of what I already know about him came via
Jere Cox and others who generously supplied the information
via this GenWeb location. I am familiar with what they know
about Theopolis/Theophilus GOODWIN in this area. We are
trying to link these Goodwin branches. This George moved to
Greenville District in the 1780s where he appears alongside
my direct ancestor, Crafford Goodwin, in the 1790 census. I
theorize that George (and maybe Crafford) came to Union from
Laurens/Newberry Counties. I have other info which seems to
link my Goodwins to possible family members to went to
Georgia. Anyone else out there searching for these folks?
Also interested in the BRYANT, BABB, HEARD, SHARP and JETT
names connected with the Goodwins who went to GA. These
names are also found in Laurens (and maybe Union).
