I have found this Will of John Woodall and Dorothy who seem similiar but are they separate couple and if so who is the actual John Woodall and Dorothy  we are looking for?

Can someone please verify that the John Woodall and Dorothy Pledge from Virginia is not the same couple as John Woodall who  married Dorothy in his Wilkes County 1796 Georgia Will.

Thank you for any assistance as I try and situate my GP's

Profile is here https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Pledge-93 the Will is the picture on the right.

Not sure how many there actually are, but not too long ago there were seven women, see G2G https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/897620/who-in-the-world-was-dorothy-pledge?show=897620#q897620

I looked at it.  I think I'm going to do a unattached Profile on John and Dorothy from the Will above with his children.  Cutting him from the herd, so to speak.  Not sure why but want to check something out.

Thank you.
Could you have muddled generations?  The John and Dorothy in Virginia seem to have different children from the John and Dorothy in Wilkes.  Perhaps the North Carolina John was the son of the Virginia couple and just happened to marry a woman with the same name as his mother.  Or they could be the same couple and their children born in Virginia died without marrying and/or having children.  I have tried more than once to sort these people out without success.
Yes. I understand.  I know I am running in circles.  Woodalls are everywhere in the south.  I know of 2 John Woodalls born within 5 years both from Georgia one died 1796 the other 1806.  If they knew each other,  the kids could of gone back and forth.  Always more to discover.  It's never boring I'll say that.  

Also, Thank you for your insights into the Woodall family dramas,  they are a lifetime of work.
And the man in Wilkes had sons named both John and Jonathan.  That might mean he had two wives, i’ve seen that in other families.
Your right this family seems to name a child with every wife. ( I believe my oldest GP or his brother not sure married at 74/75 and had 3 more children before he died.) They were constantly married with wives.  I believe it was you that told me about how having young children you couldn't stay unmarried too long.  Someone had to watch over the kids while he did the hunting I guess.  Yes this helps shake out the tangles.  It was a different life back then.
