Being a history of the descendants of Richard Dexter of Malden, Massachusetts, from the notes of John Haven Dexter and original researches. Richard Dexter, who was admitted an inhabitant of Boston (New England), Feb. 28, 1642, came from within ten miles of the town of Slane, Co. Meath, Ireland, and belonged to a branch of that family of Dexter who were descendants of Richard de Excester, the Lord Justice of Ireland. He, with his wife Bridget, and three or more children, fled to England from the great Irish Massacre of the Protestants which commenced Oct. 27, 1641. When Richard Dexter and family left England and by what vessel, we are unable to state, but he could not have remained there long, as we know he was living at Boston prior to Feb. 28, 1642.
Before closing these sketches it is our duty to mention particularly one member of our mission family who has recently departed this life, in the faith and hope of the Gospel. In preparing this little volume there has been a studious effort to avoid any unnecessary mention of ourselves or family. We had no desire to obtrude personal affairs or an undue share of self upon the attention of the reader. A simple record of facts required more than was desirable in this regard. But as Mrs. Goode has finished her course with joy and has entered upon her blissful

Eli Warren Goode was born December 18, 1869, and died October 17, 1929. It was the observation of a well-known writer that it takes three generations to make a gentleman. Mr. Goode’s father was Charles T. Goode, a graduate of the University of Georgia in the class of 1853, a Colonel in the Cavalry of the Confederate Army, a member of the General Assembly, a member of the constitutional convention of 1865, a lawyer and orator par excellence. The paternal grandfather was Honorable Thomas W. Goode, a highly successful lawyer, who was frequently sent to both branches of the General
R. L. GOODE. Of the many members of the bench and bar in the West, none has awakened more respect for his character and ability than R. L.Goode, of Springfield, Missouri He is descended from a long line of honorable ancestors who were noted for their patriotism and love of liberty. The family of Goode first became represented in this country by two brothers who, on account of their religious belief, were compelled to leave England in 1648. They settled at Norfolk, Virginia, where some member of the family has resided to the present day. The original home of the
The readjustment of the national affairs after the civil war led to conditions under which the people of the north and the people of the south began to mingle, and became acquainted and ratified the feeling of mutual admiration which their prowess during the four years’ struggle had compelled for foemen who wore the gray and foemen who wore the blue. Men of the north took part in the southern business and politics; men of the south began to have a hand in the national and local affairs at the north. A paternal sentiment has resulted which has buried old
