She was perhaps, a daughter ofJohn Michael Goodnight who came to America on the same ship, same date.Another daughter called "Katy Landers in S H Goodnight's account of "TheGood(K)night, Gutknecht Family in America" may have been Catherine, thewife of Henry Landis, brother of Mary Landers (Landis), second wife ofJohn Michael." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The family version of the removal to Kentucky and the killing of MichaelGoodnight by Indians is told in this manner: "After locating and buildinga cabin on his land near Harlan's Station in what later became MercerCounty, Michael Goodnight returned to North Carolina and then set outagain to Kentucky in July 1781, with his family and household effects.They were a caravan composed of other pioneer families, who were guardedby 30 armed men. No serious mishap befell the emigrant train until itarrived within half a day's journey of Harlan's Station, where a camp waspitched for the night. All was secure but at midnight the fearful cry ofthe savage was heard, followed by gun shots, screams and confusion.Michael Goodnight was killed in the first onslaught and his son, John,was severly wounded, but he succeded in making his escape. Mrs Goodnightwas expecting another child at the time. She fled into the dark forest.Many of the immigrants were massacred, but a few escaped to the stationwhere the alarm was given. A party was made up to search for Mrs.Goodnight and she was found two days later in woods lying prostate uponthe ground in a semi-conscious state, her face covered with a blanket.She was taken to Harlan's Station where four months later, Jan 1, 1782 ason, Isaac Goodnight was born. A curious circumstance, preserved in thefamily traditions, is that from his birth until the day of his deathIsaac could never go to sleep without covering his face" From History ofthe Goodnight Family in America by Mrs. W S Conover & Mrs. L F Ison,Printed in the Harrodsburg Herald, Harrodsburg, KY on Jan 18, 1973."Another version is that Michael and his son, John went back to NorthCarolina after the remainder of their goods which they packed on horses.The Indians came upon them in the night about a half a days ride fromHarlan's Station. Killing Michael outright and wounding John, but Johnmanaged to get to a horse and ride to the station and warn thesettlement. Later they came back and buried Michael where he died."
