Descendants of Ansel/Anselm Goodman

There is no mention in Bedford County Virginia records of any of Ansel and Edith (Brown) Goodman’s children. There are however several land and marriage transactions in Adair and Russell County Kentucky that give us some indications of who their children and grandchildren may have been. They may have had one female child born in late 1777 or early 1778, while Ansel was in service at Boonesborough or in captivity, but their other children could only have been conceived after Ansel returned to Bedford about March 1779, and born from 1780 to about 1798. Based on these dates, their offspring would have been of marrying age themselves from about 1798 to 1825.

A Martin Goodman is listed with land warrant in Adair Co., KY, in 1822, for 50 ac. on Roaring Lilly Creek. This is probably the Martin G. Goodman b 1798 in TN, who later removed to Indiana with wife Nancy, who was born in Adair Co., KY in 1801.

An Anslow (sic. Anselm/Ansel) Goodman had land warrant for 50 ac. on Big Lilly Creek, Adair Co., also  in 1822. Based on dates and proximity, Martin and Anslow were probably related, and probably brothers. They may have been sons of Ansel Goodman, as Ansel also lived in Adair Co. at that same time.

Another Martin Goodman, b ca 1820 in KY, is later found in Grass Twp., Spencer Co, IN 1850 with son Ancil. According to other researchers closer to this family, the elder Martin Goodman’s children did not include another Martin Goodman. In addition to the elder Ansolom (sic.) Goodman, believed to be Ansel b. ca 1752, a younger Ansle (sic.) Goodman is also listed in the 1810 Adair Co., KY census, so this one could have been the father of the Martin Goodman b. ca 1820 of Indiana. In any case, the Ancil name in the 1850 census, the common name of Martin, and their earlier residence in Adair Co., KY, seems to place this line as descended from Ansel Goodman b. ca. 1752.

The following chart is a “work in progress”, from a variety of sources, and should not be taken as 100% accurate.
