I have been researching this Henry Gooden for many years and have not had much luck. I have been able to track the Luwellen line back to the 1700's. Henry Goodin md Lucinda Luwellen in Morgan Co, Ohio 28 mar 1841. I find him buying land in the same county in 1837. In 1840 Morgan CO, Ohio census, I find him in Morgan Co (or his father of the same name) living two H/H's from Zadock Luwellen, his wife's family.
By 1850 Rebecca,the child of Henry & Lucinda Goodin is being raised by her maternal grandparents in Ray Co, MO. I have not found Lucinda after she is married. She may have died after childbirth??
1850 Census I found a Henry Gooden in Washington Co, Waterford Twp, Ohio. I have also found on a Ohio Civil War Database (Union), that shows Henry Gooden, John Gooden, Moses Gooden and Solomon Gooden all enlisted in waterford twp, Washinton Co, Ohio. Does anyone know how these men are related???
I dont know who are the parents of Henry Gooden/Goodin??
Any help or ideas you can offer will be much appreciated. Marsha
