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.

Ancestry.com, Walton Co.
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.

Re: M. (Monroe) J. Goodson and Julia Blalock, From: lashlock@uaex.edu, Date: 3/12/2001, Time: 12:09:41 AM, Remote Name: 170.94.62.235
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.

A look at age discrepancies: Moses tombstone indates birth on December 03, 1839. Compare with other records:
     1850 census, age 7 (birth between 9/25/1842 and 9/25/1843).  If using tombstone date, he should have been 10 years, 9 months at time of enumeration.
    1880 census, age 35 (using estimated date of July 1, 1880 for enumeration - birth between 1844-45). If using tombstone date, he should have been 40 years, 6 months at time of enumeration.
    Civil War record, enlisted October 1861 - and indicates age of 24, but it is unknown if this is the age at enlistment or the age at discharge or roll.  Using his tombstone date, he would be 21 and 10 months at time of enlistment. By 1864 roll call, he would have been 24 years.
    Marriage record indicates that on Jun 19 1862, Moses was 23 years old.  If using tombstone date, he should have been 22 years, 6 months at time of marriage.

NOTE FROM RICHARD THOMAS GOODSON (BROTHER) FILE:
    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.

(October 18, 1861 enlisted notes Moses and Seaborn both at age at 24 - if correct, birth dates for both men would have to be before October 18, 1837.  Age of "24" then is probably date discharged, died or when roll was taken.)

---------------------------
     On October 18, 1861 Moses and Seaborn enlisted with Dawson's 19th Arkansas Infantry, which later became one of the components for Hardy's Infantry.  J. P. (James Polk) Goodson is cited as enlisting originally with Dawson's Regiment. If the dates are correct, James enlisted with Dawson's only days before the Battle at Fort Hindman at Arkansas Post. The Confederates had been disrupting Union shipments on the Mississippi River and Major General John McClernand organized a movement to capture the Post.  Troops began their arrival January 9, 1863 and and by January 11 the Union had surrounded the Post with relentless fire.  The Confederate command surrendered.  It is estimated that the Union lost 1047 of its 30,000 troops and the Confederates lost about 109 of its 4,800.  Most of those who survived were captured as prisoners.  Among those was Seaborn T. Goodson, who died the following month in military prison at Camp Douglas. The battle was considered a victory for the Union,
    Hardy's Arkansas Infantry Regiment was organized a short time later by consolidating what was left of the 19th and the 24th Infantries and Crawford's Infantry Battalion after the capture at Arkansas Post on January 11, 1863.  Hardy's Infantry later participated in the Red River Campaign in the spring of 1864, including the Battle at Jenkins Ferry April 30, 1864.

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 Parks cemetery 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.

We are trying to find info relating to Monroe Goodson that was born in Lincoln Co. around 1855 and may have married a Julie Blaylock. He died and is buried in Parks cemetery on the Scott-Yell Co. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance, Lanny Ashlock

In Reply to: Re: Info on Monroe Jacob (Jack) Goodson by Ken Goodson  of 1119  
Thanks for trying to help. Looks like I've got a discrepancy. On our Monroe's (we think Monroe Joesph "Jack") headstone they have his date of birth as 1839 and that of his wife Judie Blaylock as 1843 also from NC. That makes him considerably older than I first thought but I believe that date is correct and not the census data showing both him and his wife being 35 at the time of the 1880 census while in Arkansas he died on March 26, 1900 and was not shown on the 1900 census but his widow was listed as living with the oldest daughter. Again any help appreciated. Lanny

Try this: http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/k/n/i/Jo-G-Knight/index.html.  This is the site of (Ms.) Jo Goodson Knight of Waynesboro, Burke County, Georgia. Her family came from Lincoln Co., NC to work in the iron furnaces of northeast Georgia. You will notice several Monroe's in the list. However, take a look at Generation #5, John Franklin Goodson. His 5th child is Josephus Goodson (you mentioned Joseph in your response to me), b. 1839, Alabama, and nothing else noted. Don't be discouraged by the "Alabama" reference, because all of his older siblings were, in fact born in Lincoln County, NC. In addition, this Cass (now Bartow) Co., GA area is very close to the Alabama line, and all younger siblings were, in fact born in Cass (Bartow) Co., GA. Note the next youngest brothers of Josephus:(1) Jacob F. Goodson, died in Yell County, Arkansas and (2) John Albert Goodson, died in Arkansas. You will notice in her continuing research, additional references to Arkansas, particularly Yell County. Hope this helps. Drop me an email message if this closes the gap. I would be interested in following your progress.

My wife is a goodson and we are searching for info regarding her great grandfather M.J> (Monroe Joseph) Goodson born in NC around the 1840's. We think his dad may have been named Thomas. Regardless, he married a Julie Blalock in 1862 or 1863 in Sevier Co. Arkansas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Lanny Ashlock
