Biographical Sketch

Blooming Cruse Goodner (1844-1923) was born in Alabama and volunteered in the Confederate States of America Army, Company F, 27th Regiment, Alabama Infantry, in 1861. Organized at Fort Heiman, Tennessee, this infantry formed part of the Army of Tennessee. Colonel John Bell Hood of the Fourth Texas Infantry transferred to the Army of Tennessee, which he led through the Atlanta Campaign, from Atlanta to Nashville, and eventually to Columbia, Texas.

Goodner served with this unit in multiple battles, including the Atlanta Campaign. Following the end of the Civil War he returned to Alabama. One year later he married Lizzie Russey, with whom he had nine children. In 1872, Goodner moved to Texas, settling in Clay County before moving in 1908 to Quanah, where he died.
