Ina, I suspect that you will find a connection with your Goode's and the Goodes who connect to my Byars and Goyne ancestors. I know that Elizabeth Jane Goode, dtr of Robert Goode and Elizabeth Hawkins, who was b. 1806, Rutherford Co. NC, m. Wm. Henry Byars 1824, Jefferson Co. AL, and both died and are buried at Terryville, Dewitt Co. TX in the 1880s. Robert Goode is buried in Chickasaw Co. MS.
I am not a Goode descendant, but I am a Byars and a Goyne descendant through the marriage of Stripling Byars to an Elizabeth Goyne. The Byars and the Goings were also in Rutherford Co. NC in 1800. There you will find Abraham, Joseph, Judy, Polly, Richard, Robert and Thomas Goode familys, all on page 112 of that census.
