Sad Case of Suicide
The Wife of James M. Goodin Slashes Her Throat With a Razor and Dies in Ten Minutes.
Mrs. James M. Goodin committed suicide by cutting her throat with a razor at her home near Alvord about 9:00 Friday morning and died in ten minutes, both carotid arteries being severed, she bled to death.
Her death came as a great shock to her family who had no intimation that she contemplated the act. She had been suffering from extreme nervousness for some time and was in Princeton Thursday and consulted Dr. G.R. Thompson who advised her to take her medicine that had been prescribed by Dr. Thompson and she replied that it would do her no good. She went into another room where she got hold of her husband's razor and went deliberately before the looking glass and began slashing away at her throat. Her daughter discovered what she was doing at the first motion and with a scream, ran to her and caught her hand that held the razor, but she changed the razor to the other hand and made one more slash at her throut which severed both catotid arteries and with blood gushing form the ghastly wounds she turned and ran into the yard, followed by her daughter, whose screams attracted the attention of her father who was at work in the barn. He ran with all speed to his wife, who by this time had sank to the ground in a faint from loss of blood. Mr. Goodin gathered her in his arms and held her till life was extinct, and was deluged with her life blood.
Mrs. Goodin's maiden name was McIntosh, and she has a number of relatives of that name in Mercer Co. She was a sister of Wm. McIntosh, of Davis City Ia. and of John McIntosh of this county. She had two married daughters, Mrs. Stanley of Saline and Mrs. Cornnish of St. Joseph, all of whom were present at her funeral Saturday which was largely attended despite the terrible rainstorm that prevailed nearly all day. The bereaved family have the deepest sympathy of their neighbors and frieds.

JAMES M. GOODIN, WELL KNOWN OLD RESIDENT DEAD
Was Born in Ky in 1842 and 75 Yrs. of His Life Was Spent Here--Was a Civil War Veteran

James M. Goodin, old soldier, former county judge and banker, and for 75 years resident of this county, died at his home in Mercer last Saturday night. He was 82 years old.
Funeral services were held at the Baptist church in Mercer, Monday afternoon, being conducted by the Rev. Charles Hickman. The attendance was large. The body was laid to rest in the Old Tennessee cemetery by the side of the companion of his youth.
James M. goodin was born in the State of Kentucky Sept. 29, 1842, the son of E. B. and Jane Goodin, and was one of a family of fourteen children, three girls of whom are now living. He came from Ky. to Mo. with his parents in 1850, since which time he has made his home in Mercer Co., with the exception of four years in the service of his country.
After the close of the war he was married to Lourinda McIntosh, Oct. 23, 1865. To this union were born eight children as follows: Bettie J. Cornett of Kansas City Mo.; Wm. T. Goodin of Mercer Mo., Frank M., deceased; Rachel, deceased; John Goodin and Rose Stanley of Mercer,; Martha Ann Donnelson, deceased; and Clarinda Moffitt of Mill Grove Mo. He also raised one grandson, Jas. L. Goodin of Mercer. There are 24 grand children, 27 great grandchildren and other relatives and friends. His wife died March 3, 1901.
Mr. Goodin became a member of the Mercer Baptist Church and was baptized in this fellowship Dec 1, 1914. Mr. Goodin was married to Sarah Curtis, who preceeded him in death several years.
A great deal might be said relative to the life work of Mr. Goodin. He was great-hearted and kind, and always ready to lend a helping hand. He was one of Mercer county's most active farmers and stock raisers, and he was also a merchant at Old Cottonwood for four or five years. He was for a good many years a member of the township band and was a member of the county court for one term. For a good many years he was president of the Mercer Bank. In all of his transactions, he was kind and obliging and numbered his friends by his acquaintances. From every standpoint, he was a man, whether at home with his family, in the church, or in social relations.
Be it said to his lasting credit that he was a great soldier. He joined the 27th Mo. Inf. in 1861, and stayed with the boys till the close of the war. He won distinction at Lookout Mountain, he went with Sherman and Thomas on the famous march to the sea. He helped to sack the City of Atlanta and with the army went on till the close of the war. He was indeed a soldier, a citizen, and during the alter years of his life, a churchman. He will be greatly missed by the many who have known him. His daughter, Mrs. Stanley, was constantly with him during the last two and a half years of his sickness and did everything possible for his comfort.

Actually, the original census looks more like Goodwin when I transcribed it from photocopies of the microfilm

My question--Where were Ebenezer & Jane (Fuson) for the 1870 census--can't find them in Mercer Co. MO

Just found this today - James Madison Goodin in 1880

You have his son who was born about 1872 listed as James F. Goodin (1871-1889). I have him listed as Franklin M. Goodin - didn't have death date for him but it is probably the same one. Listed in his father's obituary in 1925 as Frank M., deceased. Obit says that James Madison Goodin did raise a grandson named James I. Goodin, and on the 1880 he is listed as James L. and born in 1890.

1888 History Of Harrison & Mercer Counties (MO) p.701--bio of James M. Goodin lists James F. as one of 7 children at that time

Stones in the Tennessee Cemetery in Mercer Co. have the following: James F. son of J.M. & L. Goodin died March 24, 1889 age 17y 3m 17d and Rachel, dau of J.M. & L. Goodin died Sep 16, 1875 age 1y 5m 14d

The grandson, James Lemuel Goodin (b. Jan 24, 1890) was the son of Wm. T. & his first wife Viola Smith (d. Mar 25, 1891 age 16; Scott Hill Cem.) My great-grandmother, Sallie (Derry) Goodin was his 2nd wife. James L. Goodin was reared by his 2 sets of grandparents--James & Lorinda Goodin & Viola's parents, John & Sophia Smith

Hi all,
I found the "tree" you all have at Ancestry.com about Ebenezer & Jane Fuson Goodin family. My connection is through Laurinda/Lourinda Mcintosh that married James M. Goodin. She was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Waymire Mcintosh of Mercer. (by the way the spelling of her name has be done many different ways, but according to affidavits in her pension application for John's Union Army pension it was Waymire).
I don't know if you know this but Lourindas older brother William Mcintosh married Polly Griffin daughter of James and Rebecca of Mercer. She was the sister of Thomas J. Griffin that married Perilee Goodin, sister of James M. Goodin. Both Polly and Thomas and their parents can be found on the 1860 census in Mercer County. Just thought I would pass this along to you.
Tom
