She is survived by the following children: Frank Sexson, Mattoon; Harmon Sexson, living near the family home; Fred Sexson, Minneapolis, MN; Mrs. Edna Mc Allister, Neoga, and Mrs. Edith Horn, southeast of Mattoon. There is also one brother, Bluford Goode living in Paola, KS. Mr. Sexson, husband and father died ten years ago.

    6. [S1251] Find A Grave, Sarah Morgan Goode.
      Sarah Goode died at her home in Ash Grove township last Thursday, Jul. 16, 1891. Grandma Goode, as she was known, was 83 years old, and was one of the first settlers in Shelby county, having come here about 1831. She was one of the charter members of the Ash Grove Christian Church, and has lived a consistent Christian life for over sixty years. Her orderly walk and God-like conversation were worthy of her profession. The funeral services were held at the Ash Grove church, Elder P. P. Warren conducting the services in presence of a great host of friends and relatives who had assembled to pay their last respects to the departed mother in Israel. Immediately after the services the interment took place in the Grove cemetery. The church has lost a good and faithful member, the family a devoted mother and friend, and the community a neighbor whom all loved and honored. Peace to her memory. - Windsor Gazette - 23 Jul 1891
