In April 1782, William Goodwin was appointed administrator of the estate of Robert Eakin.
In July 1782, William Goodwin was appointed administrator of the estate of William Eakin. Goodwin was soon to marry Eakins's widow, Mary Goodwin Eakin, with whom he was to have at least five children. Were Robert and William related?
The Goodwin/Eakin household moved to Indiana in 1800 or 1801. However, Polly Goodwin, a purported niece of William Goodwin, married Ware Eakin in Louisville in 1810.
I know quite a bit about the Akins who went to Clark county IN but nothing about any of those who may have stayed behind in KY. The key to the lineage may lay with them.
