I believe that what is below would be the family that you have found. I am researching this family (See my message # 367 on this board). I would appreciate anyone who can add or correct any information about this family to contact me at
Thanks Robert D Cline

       Allen GOODRUM was born about 1790 in Brunswick County, Virginia. He died Jan 1822 in Williamson County, Tennessee.
BIOGRAPHY: Tax digest of Lincoln County Georgia shows that Allen was living in Lincoln County in 1815. He was also witness on a deed, October 6, 1815, when heirs of Sterling Goodrum bought 60 acres from James Prather in Lincoln County, Georgia.
In 1819 Allen and Elizabeth moved to Williamson County, Tennessee and in 1820 were on the census there. In the January 1st 1921 (I believe this should be 1821. - RDC.) Williamson County Court minutes Allen received a license to keep an "ordinary" inn at his home. The same year he sold a slave to John Mayfield and purchased 1/2 acre of land on Mill Creek. - D. Goodrum.
Apparently, Allen was already in Tennessee when his father's estate was settled because Arthur Frazier (husband of Mary Polly)was designated to represent of all of the heirs. - RDC.

Allen married Elizabeth FRAZIER about 1812. Elizabeth was born about 1796. She died 18 Dec 1862 in Williamson County, Tennessee.
They had the following children:
       M       i.       Anderson Johnson GOODRUM was born 5 May 1813 and died 15 Sep 1878.
       M       ii.       Thomas H. GOODRUM was born about 1816.
       M       iii.       James Andrew GOODRUM was born 12 Aug 1818 and died 29 Mar 1873.
       F       iv.       Jane Elizabeth GOODRUM was born about 1820.

       Thomas H. GOODRUM was born about 1816 in Williamson County, Tennessee.
BIRTH: I have some doubts about this birth place. His parents did not move to Tennessee until 1819. - RDC.

Thomas married first Polly S. DICKERSON on 2 Apr 1840 in Williamson County, Tennessee. Polly died before 1857.
They had the following children:
       M       i.       James C. GOODRUM was born about 1841.
               ii.       M. D. GOODRUM was born 1854.
       M       iii.       Robert A. GOODRUM was born 1855.
Thomas also married second Mary J. WISNER on 30 Sep 1857 in Williamson County, Tennessee.
They had the following children:
       M       iv.       William A. GOODRUM was born 1859.
William married Lula LESTER1.
               v.       S. F. GOODRUM was born 1860.
