    Married
    • Anna Goheen was named the administrator of John Goheen estate. It is assumed that Anna was his wife from this evidence.
      Some Genealogies indicate that Anna Prigg who married Timothy Millard and living in Coventry twp, Chester County in 1740 was John Goheen's wife, this is not true she was married to Mr Millard and producing children at the time Ann (John Goheen) wife was producing children. Someone just made an assumption without any evidence. I also though this may be true but further investigation proved otherwise
