Mary Ann Emily Good

When Mary Ann Emily Good was born on January 15, 1859, in Greeneville, Tennessee, her father, Hartsell Good, was 27, and her mother, Martha Milburn, was 25. Hartsell was the son of David Good and Hannah Hartsell. Martha was the daughter of the Reverend William Elbert Milburn and Martha Frame.

Mary Ann Emily Good was called Mollie and had two brothers: William David (1855-1911) and Elbert Hartsell (1861-1929).

In 1860, the family lived in District 10 Greeneville, Tennessee. Hartsell's parents had lived next door to Andrew Johnson and his family. After David Good died, Hartsell sold the house Andrew Johnson. They attended the same church. (First Methodist, now Christ's Chapel).

Hartsell Good was a tinner before the Civil War. On 27 Jan 1863, he enlisted in the Tennessee 4TH Reg Tennessee Infantry, Union Army.

Hartsell died on July 14, 1863 and is buried in the National Cemetery in Nashville.

On June 15, 1865, Martha filed for a window's pension and soon after she moved to Rheatown with her two youngest children.
