John E. GODARD was born about 1855. He married Mary TERRILL.

Mary TERRILL [Parents] was born in 1857. She married John E. GODARD.

In 1860 census as age 4. See: https://sites.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/mo/randolph/census/1860/0759.gif

Alfred "Zoll" TERRY was born in 1858. He died in 1932. Alfred married Florence TERRILL.

Florence TERRILL [Parents] was born in 1866. She married Alfred "Zoll" TERRY.

The book, "Old Families of Randolph County, Missouri", on p. 271, gives a marriage of Alfred Terry to a Florence Terrill. There is no evidence that this is the right Florence, but it is a good bet.

John LAND [Parents] was born in 1759 in VA. He died in 1804 in Jessamine Co., KY. John married Elizabeth BARLOW in 1780.

Other marriages:
RENFRO, Narcissus Rebecca

Served as Pvt. in Doherty's Co., 10th Regiment under Col. Abraham Aheppard (Sheppard?). Reference: N.C. State Records Vol. XVI, page 1106. Revolutionary War Veteran. In September of 1994, I received correspondence from a Ms. Carol Ann Petrich Flores of 11606 Sagelink Drive, Houston, TX 77089-4434. She has records on the Land lineage and shows a John Land, b. abt 1755 in VA and died in Georgia about 1830 marrying a Ruth Fountain (abt 1764-1830 GA). She also has a Henry Land (c1757-1840) m. Easter Fountain. This was likely the brother of John Land as the dates are right and it was quite common in those days for brothers to marry sisters. I received the following email:

The Mary Land listed above (John LAND item) is Mary DYE, daughter of
Fauntleroy DYE of Richmond county, VA, and Warren co., NC. She married John LAND circa 1762. Thomas DYE was in Warren co., GA, as early as 1784--near the area where another John Land (junior?) married Ruth Fountain. In fact, virtually all the people listed above moved to the Jefferson/Warren co., GA, area.

I'm particularly interested in your Land information because one of my ancestors is Jonathan Fountain, presumed brother or uncle to Ruth Fountain Land. I'm also related to the Dyes. There was a Celia Dye who married Henry Uptagroves in either Jefferson or Warren co. in 1811 and in addition to Thomas and John Dye, William and Nancy were other favorite family names. They're rather common, I suppose, but I noticed that they matched the Land or Fountain names you sent.

Incidentally, there was a Landel Dye (ca. 1790-1860) in Warren/Jefferson, and my great grandfather's sister, Nancy Dye, married Green Shepherd, probably son of John Shepherd of Onslow, NC.

Could your John Land, Henry's father, be the son of the above John Land?

The information on the Land family down from this man was given to me in 1993 by a descendant and cousin of mine: Doris Willman, 1000 E. McKinsey Street, Moberly, MO. The bio on his son Fountain gives this:

"Kentucky: A History of the State, Battle, Perrin, & Kniffin, 5th ed., 1887, Jessamine Co.

I received this email 5/99:

Hi again John: I just checked out your web page. I see you have a bit of
information on the Land family (Eleanor Hosick m. Henry Land), so is this
where your connection to the Hosick family is? Do you know if the Lands made
the move to Livingston Co. with the rest of the Hosicks? After finding my
Robert's connection with the Hosicks. I checked out some Livingston Co., KY
microfilm I had on reserve at the Family History Center for that name. I
found Alexander Hosick, Sr.'s will and made a copy of it. Do you have, or
would you like a copy (assuming you have a connection to the Hosick family)?
It doesn't contain a lot of information (doesn't list the children by name,
just the 2 sons he made executors).....was written on Dec. 25, 1814.
Presented in court July 1815 to be recorded. I also found land transactions
for Aquilla Snow (so they made the move along with the Hosicks and

William F. ROBERTS was born on 20 Feb 1808. He died on 5 Apr 1862 and was buried in Oakland Cem., Moberly, Missouri. William married Julia Dorothy COATES.

Other marriages:
LAND, America

Received this 6/99 from Carole :

"John - I think I found a marriage date for William F. Roberts and America Land. I found them on a marriage CD I have that covers several southern states. William's last name spelled "Robards". The date listed was Dec 23, 1829 in Jessamine Co., KY."

May not be him, but

The booklet, "Original Land Purchases of Randolph County, Missouri" by Cecille Taylor Rice, pub. by the Randolph County Historical Society has this on him:

Roberts, William purchased 5 large lots from 19 Jul 1841 to 1855.

Read the notes under his son-in-law, John Robert Terrill, which say that John went to the gold rush in 1849 with a "Capt. William Roberts." I wonder if it could be this man.

There is a William Roberts buying Randolph Co. land 1843-1857:


At the KY biographies site there is this: "Thomas H. Roberts, farmer, P. O. Payne's Depot; was born in Scott County, Ky., Oct. 5, 1843; his father, Hillery Roberts, was born Dec. 5, 1798, and died April 25, 1874, and was a son of William Roberts, a native of Maryland, who came to Kentucky in 1790, and settled on the place now owned by T. H. Payne. The mother of our subject, was Lemira Waggoner, a native of Scott County, born Oct. 7, 1807, and died May 8, 1874." I wonder if this William could be father of our William.

Julia Dorothy COATES was born on 7 Sep 1826. She died on 30 Jul 1906. Julia married William F. ROBERTS.

Other marriages:
WELCH, Nathaniel

I have listed the middle name my grandmother, Anne C. Terrill, as "Calvin", but I have also seen it written as "Coates." There may have been a close family relationship with the Coates family of which I am not aware. Doris Willman lists her as the 6th child and lists the first five children.

They had the following children:
