Abraham Goad (1665-1734) was first recorded in Lancaster County in 1682. He became a planter in Richmond County and owned several tracts of land, some of which he may have acquired from his mother-in-law, Eve Smith. His wife, Katherine Williams (1673-1741), was the daughter of John and Eve _____Williams of Rappahannock County. Her father died at an early age and her mother then married William Smith. Abraham and Katherine married in 1692 and they had seven children: William (1693-1732), Hannah (1693 - ?), John (1700-1771), Abraham (1710-1799), Peter (1715-1794), Elizabeth (? - ?) and Alice (? - ?).

List on America's First Families - http://www.firstfamilies.org/db/framedex.htm

Will proved at New London, CT in Aug. 1726
Source: http://kinnexions.com/smlawson/stephens.htm#HStevens:
Henry arrived in America about 1660, and was at Swansea when King Philip's War began. He received a land grant for his service as a soldier in the war. Henry became one of the incorporators of Stonington in 1716, owning land at Stonington, Plainfield and Voluntown and serving in the colonial legislature for eight years

Leary note: "Emigrated to New Eng. c1650 (sic); was admitted freeman in Stonington, CT 7-1-1672; his will proved 8-9-1726; d.1726" [Perhaps his father came to New Eng when N. was age 2, but no record]

There are no written family records, letters, or documents of an early date, to settle beyond doubt the ever-pressing query, who was the father of Henry Stephens or Stevens of Stonington, Connecticut. A very common tradion is that three brothers,
Thomas, Richard, and Henry Stephens, Came to New England about the year 1660 and that Henry settled in Stonington, Connecticut. No mention is made of father or mother, or the place whence they came.
In a history of a county in New York State, the following is given: "The subject of this sketch is of English origin. It is related that as early as 1660 three brothers, Thomas, Richard and Henry Stevens, settled in this country; that they distinguished themselves as soldiers in King Philip's war, and served as colonels."
In another appears: "The subject of this is of English origin. It is related that three brothers--Thomas, Richard and Henry Stephens--came to America from Ireland sometime during King Philip's war, served said war as colonels. There is no doubt that Henry was a private in King Philip's War, but I can find no record of the service of either Thomas, or Richard in any capacity. Another story is given after this fashion: "Nicholas Stevens, or Stephens, who had been a Brigadier General in Oliver Cromwell's army, came to Taunton in Massachusetts in the year 1669. He had three sons, Nicholas, Thomas and Henry. Nicholas settled in Taunton or Dighton, and his son, Nicholas resided there with his family. One of his sons, according to the best information to be obtained, settled near Boston. His name was supposed to be either Thomas or Ebenezer."
Both of these traditions agree that one of the brothers was named Thomas, and there was a Thomas Stephens, whose name appears on the list of free inhabitants of Westerly, Rhode Island, and removed to Stonington, Connecticut, where he died May 14, 1736. His will was probated June 4, 1736.
No children were mentioned in the will, nor are any found recorded at Westerly, Rhode Island, or Stonington, Connecticut. He is believed to be one of the brothers of the traditions and this view is confirmed by the late Honorable Richard A. Wheeler, historian, of the town and church of Stonington, Connecticut, who has reportedly stated that Henry Stephens, of Stonington, and Thomas Stephens of Westerly were brothers.
