I have many notes on Goode family including last will of Wm with inventory of estate in Lauderdale Co. AL and scattered information on York, Voiley. Two books, 'Virginia Cousins' and the 'Lee Family' by Mrs. Robert Eckhardt which lists "other Lees/Leas" at the back of the book, helped me tremendously.
Questionable dates were because census records were hard to read. I have not had time for MANY years to do research. Several census records have been released since. (I have not become a member of Ancestors.com yet. I'm waiting until retirement and more available time. Neva K.
