Notes for John Godby: Francis Baber assumed custody of the 2 youngest children, Russell and George Godby,in 1771 after John Godby, Jr, passed away in 1769. This implies that John Godby could have married a Baber. It's also interesting that Francis Baber's father probably was William Baber, the progenitor of all the Babers in Caroline County. He could have been the inspiration for William Godby's name as this was the first time a William Godby was christened (and certainly not the last).
Children of John Godby and Unknown (possibly sister of Francis Baber) are:
William Godby, b. September 29, 1750, Caroline Cty, VA, d. January 1833, Pulaski Cty, Ky.
+John Godby, b. 1752, Caroline Cty, VA, d. April 1803, Montgomery Cty, VA.
