Three brothers, Goodwin, Abraham, and David, sons of Henry and Phebey
Mayes of Henry Co, VA, migrated to the Leipers Lick Creek area of
northwest Maury Co, TN about 1805. Indications are that they left Henry
Co, VA, went to NC for a while, then moved on to middle TN.

Mayes, married her cousin, Miles H. Mayes, who was the son of Goodwin
