Information on the John Goudy family comes from an e-mail I received from Merrily Lawson, email@example.com, on December 27, 1998. Merrily said the information came from:
GOUDY Bible Records as published in Ohio Records and Pioneer Families Vol II #1, Jan-Mar 1961.
Here is a copy of the e-mail:

As luck would have it, I began compiling my many years' of notes today. Am nearly blind after working on the computer for the last 8 hours, so am about to call it quits for the day. The below were found in GOUDY Bible Records as published in Ohio Records and Pioneer Families Vol II #1, Jan-Mar 1961. I don't know if your Goudy line ties into mine or not. I have found 3 John Goudy families in the Greene/Clark County area in Ohio and am in hopes I will find some links in all the material I have gathered over the years. Your John Goudy was from PA, but so was mine.
I will keep your query in my inbox and let you know if I find further information, which I'm sure I will. I believe I have a reference somewhere on the John Goudy/Amelia Scott marriage. But I have 6 3-ring binders plus a 10 inch pile of papers to finish sorting through. I have my direct ancestry in my PAF files, but want to get all the other Goudy data into a readable database of some kind.
Keep in touch.
