I was perusing the 1880 Waller County, TX Census records and came across the following Goodrum family living in the same enumeration district as my Goodrums who were all originally from Mississippi and South Carolina.I wonder if anyone can shed any light on who this J.J. born in Kentucky might be?Here's a transcription of the census record for this family:
