John Goodman, made a deposition (making his mark) in Louisa County on 27 August 1768, stating that he was living with George Gibson when George sent him to cut down a tree on land adjoining the land of George’s father Gilbert Gibson. Gilbert met him there and told him that he was on the dividing line of a branch called Great Branch which divided Gilbert’s land from the land he had given his son George [Judgments, 1769-1770, frame 427].

On 28 March 1783 he owned land on both sides of the North Mayo River when the Henry County court allowed him to build a water grist mill on it [Orders 1778-82, 86; 1782-5, 75].  In 1783, Moses Going was permitted to build a grist mill on Morth Mayo River, according to Henry County Court Order Book 3, page 85. Jack Harold Goins wrote, “Looking at North Mayo River [present day map], it flows into the South Mayo River, thus becoming the Mayo River as it flows into North Carolina.”
