There is a family tree that, although a bit confused & missing stuff, has this family:
1) This is the marriage for the mother/father of your Ethel Mae Groom:
Arkansas, County Marriages Index, 1837-1957

3) The family tree is listed as ..AND THEN THERE WAS BRENDA GOODSON Jjokers492
This tree does show a Jo Ann Goodson, another daughter b. 1934 of the busy Clayton Goodson with still another wife...and on the 1940 census, she is with grandparents (and a brother Jean?). So apparently, Clayton Goodson has moved on again. (But he's not yours - only a step-grand.) Did not find your Ethel on the 1940 but she should be somewhere!
Good Luck!!!
