On January 28, 1861, the county delegates met in convention
at Austin. Governor Sam Houston tried in vain to convince the
secessionists that the interests of Texas could best be served by
remaining in the Union. On March 2, Texas Independence Day,
the convention met again to count the vote on secession. Texas
immediately joined ten other southern states to form the Con-
federate States of America. The war followed, and the exchange
of letters between C. C. Goodman and his brother, James, came
to an end.
Leon County, Texas, March 27, 1868
I now have news. Too much. My dear father died October the 16th
in the year of our Lord 1861,24 and Ione Ann died August the 31st
in the year of our Lord 1862. She was kicked by a mule. It broke
her skull. Father died with the choking quincy.
From your Niece,
