A descendant of John Goode, a colonist who settled in Virginia in 1660, Thomas served in the Continental Army (1776-1778) with Gen. George Washington and participated in the battles of Princeton and Trenton. Later, while in the Virginia Militia, he was at Yorktown when Cornwallis surrendered Oct. 17, 1781. An early settler of Covington, he lived at this site from 1826 until his death on December 20, 1846.
