Richard Thomas GOODSON

Richard "Ned" Thomas was killed when struck by lightening while riding his horse.
(source: Annie Mae Goodson Roberson)

Thomas B. Goodson is not verified as Richard Thomas Goodson's father.  Evidence is good, but still only circumstantial (as of 12/2002).  Connection initially made by William T. Clarke, researching the Goodson line in Arkansas (file notes to be entered).  Additional and very strong evidence - Annie Mae Goodson Roberson has a cemetery record book of Howard Co., AR.  Handwritten above the name 'James K. Polk Goodson' is a note 'brother of Richard T.' There was a memorial service honoring confederate soldiers and James' grandson or great-grandson was there to represent James.  Annie Mae has the clipping from this event.  Apparently it was during this event that the notation about Richard T. was made, but it is uncertain has to how that information was obtained. When this information was presented to me, a 'James P. Goodson' was already included in this database as Richard Thomas Goodson's brother.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Is Richard: Ned - Ed - Edward? This child would have been born around 1851, 52...census conducted July)

According to Robbie Goodson Stone, Richard went to Howard Co., AR when he was 17-years-old (approximately 1869/70).  Robbie did not indicate, however, why he went or how long he stayed.  Richard is listed as a registered voter in Yell Co., AR in 1873.  

    If most of our assumptions are correct, it is possible that, as a child, Richard lived with another family in Yell Co., AR, possibly with his brother Moses.  (Moses J. Goodson is listed in Yell Co 1873 Voter Registration List along with brother R.T.  Moses has not yet been found in the 1860 or 1870 census, but we do know he married in sevier Co. in 1862. Since the brothers are placed in the same town in 1873, it should be considered that Richard and Moses may have previously been together in Yell Co.) Martha may have died in GA and Thomas decided to relocate to AR as other Walker Co., GA Goodsons were.  If so, it is not unreasonable to consider that Richard, the youngest child, may have been cared for by another family.  The same might be considered if Martha died after arriving in AR.  Robbie's report, however, states that Richard went to Bluffton, AR (Yell Co. ) from GA, when he was about 1-year-old, indicating he went directly there.  It is also possible that Thomas and family went directly to Yell Co. but relocated to Sevier Co., shortly there after, leaving Richard (and possibly Moses) in Yell Co.

1870 Yell Co., AR census shows a James Goodson, 25 and a Thomas Goodson, 19 living with Hannah Garner, working as farm laborers.  Both men are recorded with GA as birthplace. James is likely Thomas B. Goodson's son; the age and birthplace fits. Thomas Goodson could be Richard Thomas Goodson, as age and birthplace fits also.  If Richard were still in Yell Co., it is reasonable to consider that after James went to Yell Co., the two young men lived together.

The Thomas in the 1870 census, however, is marked as being unable to write (can read) and is marked in column 18 (deaf, dumb, blind, insane or lunatic).  At the time, Arkansas law excluded such individuals from voting (even today, 44 states still have laws excluding some individuals, including Arkansas), and because we know that Richard T. was a registered voter, either this is not Richard or the census was marked incorrectly (this census page does have a number of error markings).

In 1887, B.M. Goodson (Benjamin, Richard's half-brother) deeded several properties to Richard.  It is unknown how the property came to B.M. Goodson. The properties are as follows:
Township 8, Range 28W
Section 20 NWNW, 40 acres - Patentee (original owner) unknown
Section 20 NENW, 40 acres - Patentee unknown
Section 20 NWNE, 40 acres - Patentee unknown
Section 20, SWNE, 40 acres - Patentee: Thomas B. Goodson, April 1860

In 1875 Thomas's widow, Mary, petitioned the court to sell several 'wild and undeveloped' tracts of land.  Among these was Section 20, NWSW, which Richard T. Goodson sold to his son, Beatrice in 1915.  (He also sold Beatrice S of S of SENW of Section 29, patentee unknown: The total of both sections being 50 acres; the sale price was $500.00).  It is unknown as to how the property came to Richard T. Goodson.

In 1888 Richard acquired more property through the Homestead Act of 1862.  Property included Section 29, SSE, 80 acres and Section 32, NENE, 40 acres.

It is interesting to note that Benjamin was only about 24-years-old when he deeded 160 acres to Richard. In a 1875 petition by Thomas's widow, Mary, references are made to her four minor children (including Benjamin - Rebecca not mentioned, assumed deceased) and their entitlement to about 120 acres of Thomas' estate.  Assuming equal divisions, this would make Benjamin's share about 30 acres.  Also, Benjamin would not have been able to hold title to the property until about 1881 (age 18-years?).  Regardless of whether all the property originated from Thomas B. or not (the unaccounted-for 120 acres and the 40 acres patented by Thomas B.), this would indicate that Benjamin held the property for less than three years.  

There remains, however, the question of why Richard did not receive a portion of Thomas' land immediately after his death, as the courts would have decreed (Thomas died intestate).  Even if Richard and his father had had some disagreement whereas they parted company, because Thomas died without a will, the courts would have ordered the administrator to locate Richard for an equal share of the estate.

Thomas B. GOODSON

Thomas B. Goodson has not been fully verified as Richard Thomas Goodson's father, however, all available evidence indicates that he was.

NOTE: Additional and very strong evidence - Annie Mae Goodson Roberson has a cemetery record book of Howard Co., AR.  Handwritten above the name 'James K. Polk Goodson' is a note 'brother of Richard T.'  There was a memorial service honoring confederate soldiers and James' grandson or great-grandson was there to represent James.  Annie Mae has the clipping from this event.  Apparently it was during this event that the notation about Richard T. was made, but it is uncertain has to how that information was obtained. When this information was presented to me, a 'James P. Goodson' was listed and included in this database as Richard Thomas Goodson's brother.  

NOTE: Additional and very strong evidence - On March 17, 2003, during research at Howard County Courthouse, Terri Chambers, daughter of Doug Goodson (son of Tom Louis Goodson, a brother of Henry Balis Goodson) called her father to ask some questions, one being the name of his great-grandfather.  He promptly replied 'Thomas.'  Though he did not learn this just recently, it is still unceratin as to how he first learned this.
--------------------------------------------------------
Robert L. Duncan and John Wynn served as adminstrators with Mary Goodson for Thomas B. Goodson's estate.

John Wynn(e) was married to Elizabeth Jett McCown, sister of Susan Zenatope McCown, who married James Polk Goodson, one of Thomas' sons with Martha. Therefore - James' sister-in-law's husband was one of the adminstrators for his father's estate.

John Wynn lived in Madison Township, Sevier Co., Ar in 1860.  Robert Dunacn lived close to Thomas in 1860 Sevier Co., Blue Bayou Township.

Georgia Cherokee Land Lottery, 1832  
214 SEVENTH DISTRICT, FOURTH SECTION, CHEROKEE Thomas B. Goodson 559th Walton granted previous to the first day of January, 1838.

Thomas is reported (on census data) as being born in GA, SC and NC.  Mortality records for Thomas show birthplace as NC.  However, Stark and other family research indicates that Thomas' siblings were born in GA.  It would be unlikely then, since Thomas was a younger child, that he was born anywhere other than GA.

UPDATE 1/03: SEE THOMAS' FATHER WILLIAM'S NOTE

Thomas married Martha Hogan 1833 in Walton Co., where William resided. In 1830 Thomas would have been about 17-years-old.  There are two entries for William Goodson 1830 Walton Co.:

Census: 1830 Walton County, GA page 150:
William Goodson: 2 male under 5, 1 male 5-10, 1 male 30-40, 2 female under 5, 1 female 30-40 (This William was born between 1789-1800)
This could be an unrecognized son of  William Goodson b. before 1770. UPDATE 1/03: SEE THOMAS' FATHER WILLIAM'S NOTE

Census: 1830 Walton County, GA page 165:
William Goodson: 1 male 15-20, 1 male 60-70, 1 female 50-60
Elizabeth Ramsey lived next door (1 female 70-80).

Since Thomas Goodson appears to have been William's youngest son, it is likely that the second listing represents William, Elizabeth and 17-year-old Thomas.
--------------------------------------------------------

Walton Co, GA MARRIAGES From 1820 to 1850
GOODSON, Thomas B.  marr.  HOGAN, Martha J.  12/19/1833  

Thomas was a winner in the 1832 Georgia Land Lottery.  He received 100 acres of land in the Cherokee Nation.  The Cherokees were forcibly removed in the long march to Oklahoma in 1833.  This march is known as the "Trail of Tears, " and over 5,000 Native Americans died during the journey.
(source: William T. Clarke)

Thomas is listed in 1850 Walker Co., GA living with wife Martha and children.  He and his family were living next to the Blaylock family.  He removed to Arkansas sometime between 1850 and 1856, as he began acquiring land in Arkansas in 1856.  It is likely he arrived a year or two before this, as it was not unusual for several years to pass between the time an individual purchased land from the local land office and the time a patent for that tract was finally signed by the General Land Office in Washington, D.C. (This was due to the tremendous amount of land being sold during the mid 1800s.) Also, Robbie Goodson Stone wrote that Richard T. Goodson (one of Thomas' sons) arrived in Arkansas when he was about a year old.  Richard T. Goodson was born 1852, so that would put Thomas' arrival in Arkansas at about 1853/4.

(This date is not considering that Richard T. Goodson and the 'Ed/unknown' (1850 Walker Co., GA census), and 'Edward' (1869 Sevier Co., AR census) are the same person.  This possibility is being explored.)

In 1860 Thomas is listed in the Seiver Co., AR census living with Elizabeth, James, Calhoun (John) and Edward, his children. It is assumed that Martha has died or the couple divorced.  (Divorced laws in the 1800s were structured so that it was not uncommon that when a couple divorced, the husband retained all rights to property and the children.) Nancy had married by this time and Seaborn is listed living with Daniel Dumplin (Duncan?).  Moses and Wiley are not found (as of yet) on this census.

(Wiley could be a nickname for John Calhoun, as there are no further census records of Wiley Goodson until 1910, although a Willis A. Goodson is buried in MT. Pleasant Cemetery, Pulaski Co., AR)

Thomas is listed in the 1870 Seiver Co., Ar mortality schedule as having died in May, 1870 as a result of a fall.  It is unknown at this time what type of accident occurred.

M.J.Goodson mustered in the confederate army at Center Point, Ar in 1861 and married Julia Blalock in 1865 in Sevier Co. AR rather than 1862. Looking for information regarding his family etc. He voted in Sevier Co. Ar after the war and was in Yell County in 1880 census. He and Julia were buried in Parksementary located on the Yell/Scott county line. Any info appreciated. Earlier birth year for M.J. may have been in error. Thought to have born in NC around 1842 NC and Julia also NC (daughter of a Samuel Blalock around 1843. She received a pension from M.J. participation in the Civil Car.

I believe that Monroe is the son of Thomas B. Goodson and Martha Hogan. Thomas is enumerated in the 1860 census Sevier Co. ARK. He is listed with dau. Elivabeth, James, Calhoun and Edward. I believe that Calhoun may be John C. Goodson listed in Yell Co. with family 1880 census. James may be listed with a Thomas (Richard Thomas Goodson) Yell Co. Census 1870 en. with family of Hannah Garner. Thomas B. en 1850 Census Walker Co. GA living next to a family of Blaylocks. In Sevier Co. Living near a family of Blaylocks. (George) This same family appears in 1870 census Yell Co. Their son William D. Blaylock seems to follow Judith and Joe E. Goodson in subsequent census. 1870 Yell Co James and Richard Thomas move to Center Point Howard Co. Ark & appear in 1880 Census and in Sub Census. Thomas B. Lived in Center Point Ark Sevier Co.. 1873 Howard Co. formed from part of Sevier Co. Thomas B. remarried a Mary ? who is en. with Elizabeth Thomas B. dau. and with children of Mary and Thomas B. which include a Benjamin and his sister Cynthia who both continue to live in Howard Co. through the 1920 Census. Richard Thomas Goodson Children may still be living in Howard Co. My Great Grandfather Andrew Jackson Goodson living in Sevier Co. Ark 1860 Census apparently not related. All of the above is speculation. I have ordered a copy of Thomas B. Will he died Jan. 1870 before census. Will send you E mail after I receive the copy of his will. Seborn (Thomas B. son, James and Monroe all in 19th. Ark. Reg.
