Edward C. Riddick, adm ... with the amended will of James Goodman decd

[image 2 of 299]
These papers name all children of James Goodman, their spouses, and many of the grand children of James Goodman in that their parents are deceased. Edny Milteer is a daughter of James Goodman while Edward C. Riddick is a grandson, son of Catherine Goodman and her husband James Riddick. Interesting to note that Edward C. Riddick is married to a grand daughter of James Goodman, Eunice Pierce, who is the daughter of Annice Goodman and her 2nd husband, Nathaniel Pierce.
Apparently Edny Goodman Parker Milteer, the only surviving child of James Goodman, questions the inheritance of her father's lands and assests that have perhaps been passed to the grand children.
