Sallie Louise Cockrill

51. Sarah Louisa5 COCKRILL (Granville LaForce6, John7, John8 COCKERILL, John9 COCKERELL (-ILL))(85) was born near Tuscumbia, Franklin County, AL, December 1, 1837. She died at 70 years of age Tuesday morning, March 31, 1908 five minutes past eight oclock, at her home, "Mount Repose," near Nashville. She lies next to her husband in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

She married Albert Theodore GOODLOE M.D. in Franklin County, AL, November 29, 1855. He was born in Maury County, TN June 23, 1833. A. T.(86) was the son of William Hill GOODLOE and Emily Elizabeth WILLIAMS. He died at 78 years of age February 22, 1912 at "Mount Repose" southwest of Nashville, Davidson County, TN on US 70. He was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville, Davidson County, TN. Dr. Goodloe was both Physician and Methodist Minister and served in various places in Arkansas and central Tennessee. He studied medicine and received his M.D. in 1853 in Virginia. Before entering practice in New Orleans, however, he was persuaded by his brother to join him in buying farm land in St. Francis County, AR. He combined farming there with a reduced medical practice and the two of them remained there until the Civil War. After a deep religious experience following the loss of his young son, Hill, in 1859, his life was changed and he became more deeply religious. This was expressed during the Civil War in forming bible study and devotional groups among his soldier companions. Shortly after the war, he felt a strong call to enter the ministry. He entered the Methodist Itinerant Ministry and spent the rest of his life as a Circuit Riding Methodist Preacher in central Tennessee. (See Albert Theodore GOODLOE M.D. for the children resulting from this marriage.)
