The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

The Goodloe family from Cherokee…

was a large family with roots in the Colbert county area, and well-respected. This photo of one of the sons from the Cherokee, Colbert County family of Goodloes will be a part of the telling of the Goodloe family history and will be featured in our future book. This photo was taken during a family reunion in 1917 in Smyrna, Tennessee. Smyrna is in Rutherford County where this Goodloe son relocated to and raised a family of children. He died and is buried there as well.

    I’m trying to figure out the genealogy of the Black Goodloes in the area. My paternal grandmother is a Goodloe. Any info would be helpful.

    • Unfortunately it is very difficult to follow the genealogy of those Goodloes. A little more information would be helpful, though.

  3. My father, Radford Reams Goodloe (now 93), says that he knew or met everyone in that photo. He also may be able to answer some questions, and is always open to more info. Contact him at reamsg@gmail.com
