Hello, I just read your post on GenForum.com from the year 2000, regarding Rachel Ann Goode, b. 1853 KY.
I am writing to let you know that I too am researching this family and have found a lot of information regarding Rachel's parentage, ancestors, and her siblings.I am most anxious to share this information with other researchers.I just need to know if you are still interested in researching this family.
Rachel's father is Henry Benjamin Goode, b. 1820 KY, and her mother is Sarah "Elizabeth" Phillips Goode, b. 1823 KY.Rachel's brother, Frank Walford "Wolford" Goode, is my great-grandfather.
I live in central CA, and in the summer of 2009 my husband and I made a trip to KY to find headstones of our people.It was a most rewarding experience!My great-grandparents, Wolford and Mary Ann (Brown) Goode, are buried in Beaumont Cemetery, just two miles straight east of Summer Shade, which is where all their children were born and raised.Beaumont and Summer Shade are in Metcalfe County, KY.
My grandpa is Lank Mitchell "Mitch" Goode, third child and third son of Wolford and Mary Ann.Not much is known of him by most researchers, because he left KY and came to San Francisco at the age of sixteen years, in the year 1908.He never went back to KY.
My father is Robert Donald Goode, b. 1922 CA, and I am Sandra Lea (Goode) Schell, b. 1948 CA.Sacramento is my hometown.
I am most serious and sincere in wanting to share my grandpa's ancestry with other researchers.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you are so disposed.
