Old Mill – Goode’s Genealogy

Old Mill on two Rivers

This is a supplement of The Old Mill

More than one person has told me that they were confused by the genealogy of the Goode family.  There are a lot of names mentioned, but here are a few of the most important ones and how they are related.

Thomas (1788 – 1821)
|Martha (1805 – 1900)
|Margret (1809 – 1883)
|George (1816 – 1871)
  |Thomas (2nd Thomas) (1845 – 1906)
    |Nathaniel (2nd Nathan) (1868 – 1917)
      |George (2nd George) (1894 – 1950)
        |Martha (2nd Martha) (1921 – 2013)
        |Thomas (3rd Thomas) (1924 – 1996)
          |George (3rd George) (1951)
            |Sean (1982)

The father of the next generation is underlined, the next generation is one tab farther over.

To get down to Sean: Jonathan -> Thomas -> George -> Thomas (2nd) -> Nathan -> George (2nd) -> Thomas (3rd) -> George (3rd) -> Sean.  So Thomas is his five times great grandfather.

I think I skipped a generation (Nathaniel) when I was telling the story, but if you remember, it was people saying it off the top of their heads.  Also, George had a son, Nathanial, that moved to Boston and started the Goode line that Barbara Adams came from.

I know that one place of confusion comes from the fact the two Marthas lived so long.  Between them we have almost two centuries.

Of course, the main confusion is that so many of the names repeat.  I have tried to callt hem “the first xxxx” or “the third yyyy”.  For the most part, though, if it isn’t clear which one is being talked about, it is always the first – the first Martha, the first Thomas and the first George are the most important.

I hope this helps!

|Abigail (1813 – 1815)

    Yeah… I think I’m one of those “confused” people. I’m loving the story but having a hard time following along with the timeline and geneology and all that.

      I’m in the middle of writing another data-dump history lesson now ;) I put in a quick recap of the history so far, so hopefully you won’t be too lost when it is posted. Main points of history – Johnny made a mill and mansion. Johnny died and Thomas took over. Thomas was bad. Something bad happened at a ball in 1821. Thomas’ daughter Martha is still a ghost, reliving the ball every night ;) Or did that confuse things more? I’m glad you’re enjoying it! It’s hard to know how many people are actually reading it.
