Family History: Goodman, Payne's Cove, Franklin, TN, USA. 18 Goodman
The Goodman family was among the earliest and most influential settlers in the Pelham Valley. The name of the first Goodman settler was John Goodman and he probably came from Rowan or Edgecombe County, North Carolina. His son was Solomon King Goodman (1779-1827) who shortly before his death deeded a plot of land to the Methodist Episcopal church, at Pelham.
Although there were several sons in each generation, most of these Goodman's seem to have left Tennessee. Two grandsons of John Goodman who did remain are the ancestors of most of the present-day Goodman's in the valley. They were Solomon Poindexter and Anderson S. Goodman. The 1860 census shows Solomon P. Goodman as the wealthiest man in the Valley, with acreage valued at $22,000.00 and personal property (including slaves) valued at $13,542.00. His brother (or cousin) (note by clc-s: this is now been found to be his cousin) Anderson, who lived on the road leading from Pelham to Payne's Cove and married Evalina Payne Reid, had not done as well, and during the Civil War Anderson Goodman was shot and killed by bushwhacker's whom he caught stealing his horses.

Payne's Cove
Thomas Payne, Sr. and wife, Yannaka Ayers, owned land with their son, Poindexter Payne, in Franklin County, GA. They sold their land in 1811, and Poindexter moved to Pendleton County, SC. At some point between 1811 and 1820, he and his family migrated to Franklin County, TN. When the 1820 census was taken, Poindexter Payne was ling in Franklin County, TN, and was reported to be over 45 years old. He had lignin with him: 3 males under 10, 1 male, age 16-18, 1male, age 18-28, 2 females under 10, 2 females, age 16-18, 1 female, age 26-45. The latter was wife, Annie Bell Hill.
Poindexter and Annie Bell settled in the protected reaches of what is now their namesake, Payne's Cove. According to oral history the first Payne settlement was right at the base of Spring Hollow, just northeast of Roberts' Cemetery. The old home place was located by a spring which supplied water, and the nearby forest supplied game.
A grandson of Poindexter Payne gave his name to the ridge which separates Payne's Cove & Burrows' Coves. He was William Elson "Bud" Payne who built a log house on the ridge and raised a family there with his wife Mary Angeline Meeks. Jerome Payne still talks of the peach orchard his daddy planted on the side of the mountain and of the good water which came from the spring on the ridge. Mary Elsie (Payne) Layne, Bud & Angie's daughter, related stories of the night hikes along a narrow path to church either at Bethel or Payne's Cove. There is no house on the ridge today, only the remains of an ancient rock chimney. Somewhere near the garden, now a mass of trees, are the graves of the twin girls, lost at birth, who would have been a part of this mountain family.
The Payne & Sanders families appear to have been contemporaries in the cove. Although neither family surname is now represented in Payne's Cove, there are many descendants.
