Note: Line #80 is bolded because the documented information is incorrect. Merrell Tillman should have been documented as Daughter and Female. However, since Merrell is considered a masculine name, the enumerator likely assumed that Merrell Tillman’s gender was male.
My great grandfather, Robert J. Goode, Sr. was living in Texas, Heard, Georgia in 1930. The family lived in a rented home on a farm, where he worked as a farmer, most likely as a sharecropper. Based on the information documented on the 1940 U.S. Federal Census, some time between 1930 and 1940, the family relocated to Randolph County, Alabama.
