Email from William T. Clarke, dated 2/27/03:
In regard to Jesse Goodson I have printed material indicating that Mandue was the Administrator of Jesse's Estate and that Ann Goodson petitioned for her Dower.  However looking at the Microfilm for December Court 1802 Ann Goodson vs the Heirs of Jesse Goodson dec'd  Petitioned  for her dower, The service was acknowledged and Judgement agnerabley? to the prayer of the petition and the court issued an order.  I did not see the Heirs mentioned but it is probably there.  Also John Goodson, Temperance Goodson and Anne Goodson received money from the Estate.   Appearance, State and Trial docket county Court 1802-1805 Call # C. R. 071 301.1.   Who was Temperance, neither Glenn or David mentioned her.

1798 Northampton county court sale: Mandue and John Goodson made purchases of estate of Jesse.

This bio concerns an African-American man in the process of becoming a free man.  He purchased items at Jesse's estate.  This information comes :

1.    James Keemer, born say 1740, was presented by the York County court on 15 November 1762 for failing to list himself as a tithable. The case was dismissed when he paid his tax. On 20 May 1765 the court presented him for not attending Charles Parish Church [Judgments & Orders 1759-63, 437, 453, 480; 1763-5, 374, 448]. He was taxable in Southampton County in 1782 [Fothergill, Virginia Tax Payers, 70] and taxable on one tithe, 2 horses, and 2 cattle in 1787 [Schreiner-Yantis, 1787 Census, 1142]. He was a buyer at the sale of the Northampton County, North Carolina estate of Jesse Goodson, presented in September Court 1798 [Gammon, Record of Estates Northampton County, I:96] and was head of a Northampton County household of 11 "other free" in 1800 [NC:466] and 6 in 1810 [NC:731].

GOODSON JESSE NC Northampton 1786 11 Webbs District

conflicting research: In work produced by Harold Gleen Goodson, he lists a Jacob Goodson, b. abt 1770 in NC, m. Nancy Phillips as a son of Jesse's.  In a footnote about Jacob it reads: On October 14, 1814, Jacob of Jefferson C., OH appointed an attorney in Northampton County, NC to receive money due him from his father (William's) estate."  The document indicate that Jacob's father was William.  I have not yet been able to contact Mr. Glenn Goodson for further information (2/03).
