Elizabeth Goode Centenarian

Lexington, Kentucky Observer & Reporter Jan 13, 1847 "Mrs. Elizabeth Goode of Lincoln County. Died Dec 26, 1846, aged 102 years, 9 months and 14 days."
Elizabeth Goode is believed to be the wife, of Benjamin Goode formerly of Amherst County Virginia.

 1815 Lincoln County Order Book 7, Vol 2, Page 296-297 Nov Term court. Order that it be certified to the Auditor of Public Accounts that it was this day proven to the satisfaction of the court by the oaths of Abraham Miller and Peter Carter, two disinterested persons, accredited witnesses, that Benjamin Goode is and was an actual settler upon the 150 acres of vacant land lying in Lincoln County Kentucky.

She is buried at the historical McCormack Church Cemetery in Lincoln County Kentucky.  McCormack Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Her son, Micager (Micajah) Goode is also buried just a few feet away. He was born 16 Jan 1791 and died 27 Aug 1865.

Photographs were taken by me as a part of  research for a Goode descendent.

  1. The Elizabeth Camden Goode tombstone in the picture doesn't seem accurate. Elizabeth Camden Goode was Benjamin Goode's wife, but it seems unlikely that Elizabeth Camden Goode lived from 1743 to 1846. It seems more likely that the Elizabeth Goode who lived 1743 to 1846 was Elizabeth Campbell Goode, who was Benjamin Goode's mother. Micajah Goode, the son of Benjamin Goode, was born in 1791. If the Elizabeth Goode who died in 1846 at the age of 102 was Micajah's mother (rather than his grandmother), then she would have been about 48 years old when he was born. That seems unlikely.

  2. Elizabeth Campbell Goode was supposedly born 1713-1718. It would be more unlikely that she had a child in her 70's.

  3. Hello, I just stumbled across this site. I have been on and found that my Great Grandmother was possibly named Lizzie Goode b. approx. 1843 and (married a Jim Lane)could they be related? Any help would be appreciated...
