Birth: Aug. 9, 1899
Estill County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1989

Goble Goosey was the son of Thomas Jefferson Goosey and Samantha Alice Rose. He was named after the Kentucky Governor William Justus Goebel who was assassinated in Febuary 1900. Goble married Hallie Isaacs in 1933 in Irvine, and were married for 53 years. Goble and Hallie went on to have ten children: Blondell,Kenneth, Bobby, Ina, Mary, Alvina,Carol,Patricia, Eldon Leon, and Walter Thomas.Goble was reknowned for his physical strength,incredible stamina,perpetual vigour, high intelligence, fastidious nature and stern disposition. He had a presence about him that just demanded respect from any who encountered him. He was honest, spoke his mind, and backed down from no one. He always stood straight as a soldier, rarely slept, hunted all night and worked his farm all day.These vigorous traits held true until the day he died. At his eulogy the reverend told how he would watch him come walking to church every Sunday. He noted with admiration that,though in his late eighties, Goble walked with a back straight as an arrow and come up the church steps without his hand ever touching the rail.He had his quirks; due to a minor accident in a Model-T when he was young, he refused to drive a car the rest of his life. Like many who survived the Great Depression he saved everything but was an obsessive organizer (his 'junk shed' was meticulously organized in a series of designated shoe boxes for old nails,nuts, bolts, and several with assorted shoe strings removed from tossed out shoes).He bragged he only read the Bible and the Newspaper, and was extremely religious. He owned a large farm in the Wagersville region of Estill County, and became a financially successful tobacco farmer. On account of his fastidious nature, his entire farm always looked like a manicured golf course. You would not find a single weed around a fence post anywhere on his farm. By the time he died in his 90th year, he had 47 grandchildren, more than twenty great grandchildren, and a few great-great grandchildren. Now, nearly a quarter century later, his descendants would easily number in the hundreds. He was the absolute moral and authoritative axis by which the family revolved, as well as its embodied source of strength.If he spoke at a family function, all went silent. In the Goosey family he was held in awe, respected,feared, loved,and to this day horribly missed by this massive clan he left as his legacy.
