John Jack Married twice..
According to the 1850 he was living on Greasy Creek with Mariah Anna Morgan Goodin and Mahala Fuson in the same house... The census shows that Mahala Fuson lists several children with the last name FUSON.. The very same children were later known as GOODIN'S In 1860 she is across the road or next door and there is only one household between the homes at the time shown on the census record.. John Jack and Mahala are shown to have married in Knox Co in about 1861.. In the 1870 Census John and Mahala are in the home on Greasy Creek with some of the children...Mariah Ann is not with them.

Judge John Goodin lived, at first on Green Briar, a branch of Greasy Creek, moved later to Pineville, and then settled on the present site of the Kentucky Utilities plant near the mouth of Greasy Creek.
Old Jack Goodin, his father, lived on the farm at the White Church, later occupied by Jack Goodin's son Ebenezer Bronster Goodin. John Mark built the Judge Goodin house, which is now occupied by Thomas Goodin's widow, and Judge John Goodin moved into the house in 1873. It was one of the early brick houses in this section and stands just back of the Kentucky Utilities plant. John Mark was supposed to have bought this land from Spencer Ball.
Judge Goodin, at one time, owned 1200 acres in Cumberland Gap, including the Gap and Pinnacle and paid $1200.00 for it. He owned the following property besides this tract of land: (1) James Pogue farm. mouth of Greasy Creek, which he gave to his daughter Belle Goodin; (2) the Kentucky Utilities plant farm, which he gave to Thomas Goodin; (3) The Frank Creech farm, bought from Alex Black, was given to Robert Goodin, which included half of the original farm; (4) the other half of the Creech farm went to W. J. Goodin.
A house, supposed to have been built by Spencer Ball, was located just west of the present John Goodin house.
Judge John Goodin was an influential man in his day and a man of many affairs. He was a lawyer and at one time a partner of James D. Black of Barbourville, Kentucky. He was Sheriff two terms in Knox County before Bell County was cut off from Knox and Harlan. He was one of the main men who aided in securing the formation of the new county of Bell.
John Goodin was captain of a company of soldiers in the 49th Kentucky Regiment of Volunteers during the Civil War. This story has often been told by him in his lifetime. Bill Partin, later a prominent Baptist preacher, was a private in Captain Goodin's Company. Mat Adams was Colonel and later went to Congress from the old Eleventh District. On one occasion, when Colonel Mat Adams was inspecting the Company, Bill Partin decided he was going to slip through the lines and get him some whiskey. He so informed Captain Goodin. Captain told him he couldn't get through the guards. Bill assured him he could get through. Captain told him to try it. Bill saw some boys rolling a barrel around where the guards were stationed and went to the boys and for a few cents got the use of their barrel. Bill got in the barrel, let it roll through the lines and laid still in the barrel for a while. As soon as the guards got away, he left the barrel and was on his way. He got the whiskey and returned, but a guard caught him. Colonel Adams was called. He ordered Bill to the guard house. Colonel sent for Bill to come before the officers and Bill sent back word that he was in the lock-up and couldn't come. The officers found him guilty and ordered him to carry a large pole around the grounds. But, said Bill to colonel Adams. I am a small man and that pole is too heavy. Colonel Adams agreed with him and sent him back to the guard house. Bill was getting tired of the guard house and set fire to it. Then they had to release Bill, because there was no guard house to put him in.
