Eli Goodwin was the oldest son of John Goodwin and Deborah Drake. He was reported to be a slight man, with blond hair and light eyes, and who had a well-developed sense of humor, enjoying playing pranks on family and friends.
He married Eliza Mariah Snider, daughter of Jacob Snider and Jane Milligan. Their recorded wedding date was Sept 27, 1827 in Spencer County, Kentucky, however it is possible that they married before that, as their oldest child was born earlier that same year and family lore suggests that Eliza Mariah was only 15 years old when they married, making their actual marriage date sometime in 1825 or 1826.
Eli was instrumental in setting up Spencer County, being the first constable in District 1 when it was formed in 1824.
He and Eliza Mariah had 13 children.
