Hi all,
I found the "tree" you all have at 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.
