JOHN GOODMAN FROM ENGLAND
I need info on John Goodman who was born 1557 in Southhill, Bedfordshire, England and died in 1620 same place as birth. I need the names of his parents when and where they were born/died. Here is what i have so far.
Mrs. John Goodman
Were Kkartherine and William together when they died and how did they die?
Did John and katherine get a divorce?
Or, could Katherine and Mrs. John Goodman be one ; and the same?
I was also was looking at the Mayflower website to see if any of my family were on it and came across the name of John Goodman. The Mayflower John Goodman supposedly died at Plymouth when the sickness hit. That was according to the papers of a man from that time. The website stated that his name was mentioned in a later census, 1627 I think. Then they say he was not mentioned in one later than that so he must have died. What if he did not die but chose to go back to England and is it fairly possible that this John Goodman that I post about could be the Mayflower John Goodman? Just because a name does not appear in a census does not mean the person is dead. They could have just moved. A thought just struck me, what if someone else used his name to gain access for the Mayflower. That same person could have hurt him to get whatever credentials he had that stated he was John Goodman and he could have died from those injuries. Back then I am not so sure they had photo IDs. If there are any that are from the Mayflower Society that reads this, please let me know what you think of this. Could it be plausible?
