Richard Dexter Genealogy, 1642-1904

Being a history of the descendants of Richard Dexter of Malden, Massachusetts, from the notes of John Haven Dexter and original researches. Richard Dexter, who was admitted an inhabitant of Boston (New England), Feb. 28, 1642, came from within ten miles of the town of Slane, Co. Meath, Ireland, and belonged to a branch of that family of Dexter who were descendants of Richard de Excester, the Lord Justice of Ireland. He, with his wife Bridget, and three or more children, fled to England from the great Irish Massacre of the Protestants which commenced Oct. 27, 1641. When Richard Dexter and family left England and by what vessel, we are unable to state, but he could not have remained there long, as we know he was living at Boston prior to Feb. 28, 1642.

Biography of Mrs. Sarah B. Goode

Before closing these sketches it is our duty to mention particularly one member of our mission family who has recently departed this life, in the faith and hope of the Gospel. In preparing this little volume there has been a studious effort to avoid any unnecessary mention of ourselves or family. We had no desire to obtrude personal affairs or an undue share of self upon the attention of the reader. A simple record of facts required more than was desirable in this regard. But as Mrs. Goode has finished her course with joy and has entered upon her blissful reword, it becomes a duty to pay that tribute of respect to which she is eminently entitled. Sarah B. Goode was born on the 31st day of Au­gust, 1809, in Washington county, Virginia. While an infant her parents emigrated to Louisville, Kentucky, where she was reared and educated. In her sixteenth year she was converted and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In her twentieth year she became the wife of William H. Goode, who was then a lay member of the Church. The life of labor, toil, joy, and sorrow which lay before them was alike unknown and unanticipated by them; for Mr. Goode, at that period, had not felt himself called to the office and work of a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. A few years elapsed and he became convinced that God had called him to preach the Gospel. The plans and prospects of life are broken up, and the aims and pursuits are wholly changed. The beautiful and comfortable home on the...

Biography of Eli Warren Goode

Eli Warren Goode was born December 18, 1869, and died October 17, 1929. It was the observation of a well-known writer that it takes three generations to make a gentleman. Mr. Goode’s father was Charles T. Goode, a graduate of the University of Georgia in the class of 1853, a Colonel in the Cavalry of the Confederate Army, a member of the General Assembly, a member of the constitutional convention of 1865, a lawyer and orator par excellence. The paternal grandfather was Honorable Thomas W. Goode, a highly successful lawyer, who was frequently sent to both branches of the General Assembly from Upson County. Mr. Goode’s maternal grandfather was General Eli Warren, of whom the well-known Georgia annalist, Judge Richard H. Clark, has written that he “became so successful a practitioner that it may be doubted if, as such, in the meridian of his life, he had his equal in the State.” General Warren sat in two constitutional conventions of Georgia, in both of which also sat his only son, and in one of which also his son-in-law, Colonel Goode, was a member; a coincidence never equaled in the history of this State. Mr. Goode had two great uncles to serve in Congress: Judge Lott Warren, the author of the present “one hour rule,” which has been in force for more than a hundred years; and Judge Peter E. Love, one of the seven representatives from Georgia who withdrew when the State seceded. One of the great-grandfathers of Mr. Goode was Josiah Warren, a patriot and soldier of the Revolution, who was the lone horseman who, when the ceremony...

Biography of John B. Goode

The readjustment of the national affairs after the civil war led to conditions under which the people of the north and the people of the south began to mingle, and became acquainted and ratified the feeling of mutual admiration which their prowess during the four years’ struggle had compelled for foemen who wore the gray and foemen who wore the blue. Men of the north took part in the southern business and politics; men of the south began to have a hand in the national and local affairs at the north. A paternal sentiment has resulted which has buried old animosities and raised numerous mutual interests, and today east, west, south, southwest and northwest, southern men and northern men are working hand in hand for the greater prosperity and the gradual but certain attainment of the splendid destiny of the American people. Idaho is not without its prominent men of southern birth and education, and one of the most highly regarded of these is John B. Goode, of Coeur d’Alene. John B. Goode was born in Bedford county, Virginia, August 18, 1864, a son of John Goode, long one of the most prominent men in the Old Dominion, and conspicuous in national politics since the days before the war. This distinguished son of Virginia was born in May 1829, and became an able and successful lawyer and a factor in the state affairs. A Democrat of Democrats and a patriotic lover of the south and all its institutions, he early identified himself with the public questions which were engaging the best talent of the country previous to the war...
