John "Jack" GoodinJohn "Jack" Goodin was born about 1804 in Knox Co., KY. There is a male the right age to be him in the household of Thomas Goodin on the 1810 census of Barbourville, Knox Co., KY. There is a male the right age to be him in the household of Thomas Goodin on the 1820 census of Greasy Creek, Knos Co., KY. Jack married Mariah Anna Morgan on September 03, 1824 in Knox Co., KY, and they had 6 children. They are listed on the 1830 census of Knox Co., KY. According to a book by Henry Fuson, Jack also married Mahala Fuson and they had 7 children. Mahala was the daughter of Thomas Fuson & Rachel Robinson. Census records are very confusing for this family, because Jack appears to have had families with Mariah & Mahala at the same time. The book by Henry Fuson states: "Jack Goodin, son of Thomas Goodin, settled at White Church on Greasy Creek in pioneer days. Later Ebenezer Bronster Goodin, a son of his, lived there. Jack Goodin was married twice and had the following family: I. Anna Morgan: (First wife) (1) James Goodin, (2) Hannah Goodin, (3) Thursey Goodin, (4) Mack Goodin, (5) Hard Goodin, (6) Alex Goodin: II. Mahala Fuson: (7) John Goodin, (8) Joseph Goodin, (9) Thomas Goodin, (10) Ebenezer Bronster Goodin, (11) Rachel Goodin, (12) Amanda Goodin, (13) Sallie Goodin. They both died on Greasy Creek and were buried in the Goodin Graveyard near White Church." The book also states that Mahala had 3 additional children (Bethanian, Hannah & Sidney Fuson) before her marriage to Jack Goodin. On the 1840 census of Knox Co., KY, there is one male age 30-40 (John), but there are 2 females age 30-40, and 2 children that are in addition to his known ones with Mariah. John is listed on the 1850 census of Knox Co., KY with wife Mariah and children James, Hardin, Hannah, Andrew Mc., Thursy & Alexander, ages 5-21. In the same household is Mahala Fuson with children (last name indicated as being Fuson) John, Sidney, Thomas, Joseph, Ebenezer, Rachel & Sarah, ages 2-17. John is listed on the 1860 census of Greasy Creek, Knox Co., KY with wife Mariah and children James, Andrew & Thursday. Mahala Fuson is listed as head of household two households away with children Joseph, Ebenezer, Racheal, Amanda & Sally, again with last name indicated as Fuson. Mariah died between 1860-1870, and Jack & Mahala Goodin are listed on the 1870 census with children Alexander, Thursey & John. At that time Jack was age 64 & Mahala was age 63. The children of Mahala Fuson all used the name Goodin. According to the Fuson book, Jack & Mahala's son Ebenezer Bronster Goodin settled on Jack's homestead at White Church, Greasy Co., KY, and their son John Goodin settled at the mouth of Greasy Creek and was Sheriff in Knox Co., KY for two terms and was one of the "chief men in the formation of Bell County" He later became a Judge, and one of his sons was Circuit Court Clerk of Bell County. Another daughter of Jack & Mahala, Amanda Goodin Stamper, had a son John Thomas Stamper who was a Baptist minister and also a County Judge in Knox Co., KY. John "Jack" Goodin died after 1870, and probably before 1880 in Knox Co., KY. Mahala Goodin is listed at age 73 as a head of household on the 1880 census of 6th Subdivision, Bell Co., KY, living with her granddaughter Mahala Partie. Mahala died in 1884 in Bell Co., KY. Anna (Mariah) Morgan Goodin & Mahala Fuson Goodin are both believed to be buried in the Eb Goodin Cemetery in Bell Co., KY, but there are no markers there for them, and I do not know where John "Jack" Goodin is buried.
