      John W. Goodson, who married in Crawford Co., Ind., Elizabeth (Faith) Peterson, a widow, on Mar. 26, 1867, was the son of John (Jack) Goodson and wife Matilda. He was born in Tenn. in 1801 (Census of 1860, Crawford Co., Ind.) His wife was born in Ky. in 1812. Their children were: Jefferson, John, Mary (or Polly, who married David Markley), William, Harriet, Harrison, Harvey, Thomas, George, and Daniel. John W. Goodson was a Civil War soldier from Crawford Co., Ind., and all his brothers served, with the exception of the youngest two who were not old enough for service. After much research, the grave of John W. Good-son was located in the Yates Cemetery, Yates Chapel (now Christian Chapel) which is in southeast Grantsburg, Crawford Co., Ind. There is no tombstone at this grave, but proof was given as to the site, by a cousin, Buckley Goodson, still living, who assisted with the burial. In this same cemetery, the grave of an aunt, Elizabeth Goodson Turner, has also been located. John W. Goodson was born in 1834 (Census of 1870, Crawford Co.). He died about 1890, two years before the death of his wife, Elizabeth Faith (born Nov. 15, 1828; died June 7, 1892; buried in Crawford Co., Grantsburg cemetery). (Source: “Grave of John W.
