The land William and Ann Roysdon (one deed has Roysden - with an "e") sold in 1764 Halifax was to William, John and Stephen Bennett(three deeds). Ann's half-sister,Hannah Goad,had married William Bennett. The witnesses to these deeds were her brother Robert and half-brothers John and William.
They were all children of John Goad (1700-1771) of Bedford County, Virginia by two wives.
William and Ann then reportedly moved to Wilkes County, North Carolinba.
Can anyone trace them beyond Wilkes or know where they died ?
Might Peter Roysdon of ca 1820 Clarke County, Va. have been their son ?
Ann "Risden"(by her father's will) wss a half-sister to Joannah(Goad) Sevier, mother of the first governor of Tennessee, Gen. John Sevier.
