Goode Family Genealogy Forum
I have John Waters Goode in my database. His ancestors were George Goode/Nancy Waters; Richard Goode/Nancy Poindexter; Edward Goode/Judith Morton Goode. I went up to Rutherford County, NC, about 4 years ago and had a wonderful time discovering "Goode's Creek Baptist Church, "Goode's Grove Baptist Church", Goode Road, Goode Street, etc. There were as many Goodes in the phone directory as there were Jones. Two of Edward and Judith's sons (my ancestors) left Rutherford County in about 1805 and went to Christian County, KY...from there to Jefferson County, AL. There is a good book that tells a lot about the Goodes in Rutherford County. You can probably find a copy online..."The House of Goode" by Louise Goode Shannon. Like all books on genealogy, you'll find some errors, but for the most part I've found it very useful.
I doubt that there will be any information coming out of our reunion that isn't in the new Edward Goode book by the Pages or Mrs. Shannon's book.
Wish you could come to the reunion. I've had a couple of responses from Rutherford County.
