I am searching for the family of my Henry Goodman b.
@1815 VA. I first locate him for certain when he married
Charlotta Moore in Monroe Co., TN 1838.
Henry and Charlotta Moore Goodman were in Roane Co., TN
1840. Charlotta Moore Goodman had many relatives in
Roane Co., TN as her Moore ancestor's had settled there
when they came from Ireland in the very late 1700s.
Henry's first son, William Lon C. Goodman was born AL
(prob Cherokee Co., AL or vicinity) 1842 but Charlotta
was in Roane Co., TN with the children 1850 and Henry
is listed last on the Census, leading me to believe he
was in AR preparing a place for his family.
They were in Van Buren Co., AR by 1855.
Henry & Charlotta had the following children:
Margaret A. A. T. E. Goodman born @1840 TN
William Lon C. Goodman b. @1842 AL
George W. Goodman b. @1846 TN
Mary Goodman b. @1849 TN
Cassandra Minerva Jane Enterprise Goodman b. @1855 TN/AR
Loduska H. (Cordellia) Goodman b. @1858 AR
We know that Henry had a younger sister, Minerva Jane
Goodman b. @1826 (per 1850 Census)TN who married the bro.
of Charlotta Moore, George Moore b. @1822 MS & they had
moved to Van Buren Co., AR by the 1850 Census.
For many years we had known the Crone family was related
but had not known how until recent years when an old
letter was discovered saying that Nancy Crone was sister
of Minerva J. Goodman Moore. So she had to be sister of
Henry Goodman but since she shows as being born @1815 she
may have been TWIN to Henry Goodman
Nancy Goodman Crone, b. @1815 VA had previously lived in
AL where her children were born up to about 1853. I am
assuming it was around Cherokee Co., AL. I do not know
when or where Nancy Goodman married George Crone. I have
never located the marriage. However the children shown
on the 1860 Census were:
Henry Crone b @1840 AL
James Crone b. @1842 AL
Elizabeth Crone b. @1845 AL
John Crone b. @1848 AL
George Crone b. @1850 AL
Nancy Crone b. @1853 AR
Jacob Crone b. @1855 AR
Living with them was Catherine Crone b Sep 21, 1800 VA
and another George Crone b. @1837 AL who appears to have
been killed in the Civil War Mar 6, 1862 in Nashville, TN
I have never been able to find out very much about the
family of Nancy Goodman Crone. I do not know the names
of the parents of the three Goodman siblings I know about.
I SUSPECT that these Goodman's were related to 2 Goodman
men who married Hammons/Hammond girls in Cherokee Co., AL
and they were around Chorkee Co. & Taladega Co. AL. Some
of this family moved to White Co., AR (which is right
next to Van Buren Co., AR in the early days) and one of
the Hammons line was in partnership with one of Minerva
Goodman Moore's son in a store. I still have no idea
who the parents of my Goodman line might be?
My own Henry Goodman and his wife, Charlotta, never got
along and were finally divorced about 1884 after the
children were grown & married. I know that Henry Goodman
was in TX for a while but I do not know when or where he
died? I heard he died at a Niece's house but he had many
Niece's in many places and probably many more than I know
Any help, corrections or suggestions would be appreciated
