* Goodwin / Sullivan / Branch / Coker / Woodham*

Updated May 27, 2011

This website is made possible because of the generous contributions of numerous Branch, Goodwin,Sullivan,Cassady, Coker and Woodham researchers. Their names are listed under "Contributing Researchers" below. These are the people whose endless hours of digging through census records, wills, estate settlements, land records, marriage records, court records, and history books, have left them with headaches and eyestrain. They are the ones who did the hard work. Compiling it was easy.

Over 15,000 descendants of Theophilus Goodwin (ca 1709-1788) are included here. They are descendants of his first wife, Elizabeth Wyche (ca 1710-1763) and his second wife Nancy(Ann/Nanny)Wyche (ca 1735-1800).

The family of Theophilus and Elizabeth migrated from the Surry County area of Virginia in the 1730s to what is now Franklin County North Carolina. The children of Theophilus migrated from there in the early 1770s to the "up country", Ninety Sixth District of South Carolina. From 1818 thru the 1830s these families moved on to what is now Lowndes, Butler, Conecuh, Jefferson, Clarke, and Chilton Counties in Alabama.

Goodwin descendants continued to migrate westward as new territories opened and new states were formed. Descendants of Theophilus now occupy most and possibly all of the 50 states


PLEASE NOTE: Goodwin/Sullivan Reunion.
The descendants of these two pioneer families of what is now LOWNDES COUNTY ALABAMA, enjoy a great family reuion each year. The reunion is for the descendants of William and Mary Turner Goodwin and Daniel and Janie Griffin Sullivan.
