Comments from; Bruce Duffy
Married 3 times. James was Catherine's child. George was James half brother according to Anne English who is descended from George. Anne said that she refused to recognize the children from the first marriage and she wouldn't list them in her research. (Too many of them for her to keep track of!) Wives 1 and 3 unknown at this time. Mary Blanche Duffy (Todd) said that Alfred had 15 children all together. Goode family bible dates from 1722 - Mary Todd had it in 1960 and gave it to her daughter, Margaret Sherrill. Alfred listed his slaves births in it. He reportedly had 50 slaves. Goodes are those listed in Virginia Cousins according to Mary and confirmation of much will be listed there.
When Goode family moved to Kentucky they had a housewarming that lasted 3 weeks - mostly with family from Virginia and Carolinas being present. Alfred met Catherine at the housewarming.
Letter from Anne English: Births from Fleming on confirmed by her inspection of church records in Clementsville, KY at St. Bernard's Church, (Catholic Church)
Dates from Mary Duffy
Virginia Cousins gives birth as 1796 and death as 1871 "Removed to Kentucky at an early day and was a soldier in the war of 1812, and also did some Indian fighting."

Alfred Goode is probably not buried in Goode Cemetery but rather in Ryder Cemetery, Lebanon, Marion County, Kentucky. This is according to a publication of the Marion County Historical Society found at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I co-lead a group to Salt Lake City for the St. Louis Genealogical Society where I am the Information Systems Director.
