John Carl (Carl) Goolsby was born on June 20, 1889 in Latexo, Houston County to John Ashley and Margaret Ann Murchison Goolsby. He attended Crockett Public Schools and studied at the University of Texas, School of Pharmacy in Galveston where he graduated in 1913 with a license to practice pharmacy.

He married Anna Helena (Helen) Cannon on April 8, 1915 in Sinton, Texas and became a respected and well known pharmacist in Crockett where he and Helen were faithful members of the First United Methodist Church. They raised two children, Martha and Carl B. (Jack) Goolsby who were taught to study and work hard to get ahead in their lives.

Carl Goolsby served his community as a member of the Crockett School Board of Education and as a dedicated pharmacist, always helping his community by attending to health concerns. He was hard working and God fearing, and when he went Home on December 18, 1952, the community mourned the loss of a good and faithful servant. After funeral services conducted by Rev. Leslie LeGrand, pastor of the First Methodist Church, he was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Crockett, Texas.
