Would your J.L. Goodson have a brother, Thomas Goodson, who migrated to
Bledsoe Co, TN around 1830 or 40? He married Sarah and had 4 boys and 1 girl?
I think he is my ggg grandfather. Any connection? I haven't been able
to locate where Thomas came from before Bledsoe.
Thank you.

My ancestor in Union County was Joshua Lee Goodson. The only data that I have about him prior to 1850 is as follows-
He was born in N.C. March 7, 1818. In the 1880 US Census he says the his father was born in Scotland, and his mother was born in N.C.. He married Lenora Melissa Bond in 1848 in Eldorado Township, Union Cnty, Ark. I find a J L Goodson in tax rolls in Union County Ark in a couple of years prior to 1848. I have yet to find any information indicating that any related Goodson family was in Union Cnty., Ark. while he was there. Lenora Melissa Bond was born in Tennessee in 1831,but not sure where. Two of their boys had Thomas as part of their given name. Your Thomas Goodson could be related to Joshua L Goodson. Where did your Thomas Goodson migrate from, and did he stay in Tenn.? What other information do you have on your Thomas Goodson. Let's persue
the possible relationship. Lee

Saw your posting on Joshua Goodson. I am searching for information on a Joshua Goodson who married Sarah Rice. Their child Ava/Ave Goodson married Adam E. Williams of Wayne Co., NC. Do not know Joshua's birthdate but it possibly could have been around 1800. Do these names match anything you have?

Thanks for anything you can help with.

Thanks for your reply. I will keep the response and check on the names of the children of my Joshua Goodson. If the dates seem to match I will let you know.

Thanks. Nita
