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.
It’s blurry and slightly discolored, but I’d recognize the two adults in this photograph anywhere. They’re my maternal grandparents (Lish and Leola [Goode] Askew) and this is the first time that I’m seeing them (and my dad, uncle, and aunts) so young.
