!NOTES:Is she the same person as Priscilla Owen(s) who was widowed by Walter Owens in the 1800/1809 period? Priscilla Owen was next door to John Godbold in 1800 which brought the idea to my mind. I couldn't find any evidence they are the same person though.;

(01) Cpt Zachariah Godbold:

Notes:

!NOTES:There were two Zachariah Godbolds (1st cousins) who were roughly the same age. One, son of John was a Capt. in the Revolution (per Sellers), and I think he was the younger of the two men (despite the higher rank). The other, son of James, was a Lt. in the Revolution. Both were listed on the 1790 census, but only one in 1800. Analysis suggests the 1800 entry was for the one listed as "Junr" in 1790 and was still in the records through ca 1809 as a resident of Marion. I believe "Junr" is Lt. Zachariah, son of James.
- On the other hand I may have them entirely mixed up.;
