2.  Were there 2 Sarah GOODWIN(s)?

a.  Sarah GOODWIN b. 9 June 1688 (where?) m. Joseph HOAG (when & where?), was dau. of Richard GOODWIN and Mary FOWLER. See Goodwin News Vol. lV Issue 5.

3.  Who were the fathers and husbands of the ladies listed in the attendance of the 1912 family reunion in the Goodwin News Vol. IV, Issue 5? Space does not permit printing their names here.

4.  Can you resolve conflict: Elijah GOODWIN, son of William GOODWIN and Abigail STONE

Information on William GOODWIN, father of Jonathan GOODWIN. Jonathan, b. 28 Apr. 1836, Lower Argyle, N.S., md. 17 Oct. 1869, Lower Argyle, N.S., d. 16 Jan. 1913

Wish to share information on ancestors of Daniel GOODWIN and Margaret SPENCER. Has anyone yet proven a link with the SPENCER line that connects with Princess Diana of Wales? Also, what is birth date of Sarah GOODWIN, daughter of Daniel and Margaret? She later removed to Chelmsford Mass, with her husband Isaac BARRON. Does anyone have her death date?

We are seeking information on William Christopher GOODWIN. He was born in 1829 or 30 in Orange or Washington Co. in Vermont. He died in 1894 or 6 at Dannebrog, Neb.
We have not been able to establish where or when he married Elizabeth FAY or just when they came to Neb. We hear that his father and one son drowned in an accident while returning from a wood cutting session. They were reportedly crossing the lake on a shortcut home and the ice gave way. The wife is supposed to have "farmed" out most of the children, so they could be using other surnames.

I wish to correspond with anyone about the family of Ivory GOODWIN who was born in Hollis Maine, 9 April 1802. He married Maria W. MILLET, 12 June 1828, Cape Porpoise, Maine. He died 15 June 1875 and is buried at the Hope Cemetery, Kennebunk, Maine.
I wish to correspond with anyone about the family of Maria W. MILLET, born 4 Aug. 1804, Cape Porpoise, Maine. She married Ivory GOODWIN 12 June 1828. I believe her parents were John MILLET and Mary HODSKINS. I would be glad to share my modest information and some pictures.



I am a tenth generation, direct descendant of John LIBBY who settled in Scarborough, Maine, c. 1636. Most of my information on the family comes from a copy of The Libby Family in America, published in Portland, Me. in 1882. I have done little original research other than to continue my direct line from 1882 on and to gather some small amount of other information bearing on my direct line of descent.
I would gladly correspond on this subject and offer any help or information that I can.
Submitted by: Stuart E. Libby, Vt.

Mrs. Frank W. W. HOWARD, ME answers: I am descended from Daniel STONE and from Thomas SPENCER. I have some data on both families.

Kenneth Wayne Goodwin, according to a front page article in the 19th of Jan. 1983 York County Coast Star, was chosen Outstanding Conservation Farmer for 1982 by the York County Soil and Water Conservation District.
The name of the farm is KEWAGO formed from the initials of Kenneth Wayne Goodwin, located on Cedar Road in Eliot. Part of this same parcel of land was purchased the 9th of January 1811 by Jotham Lord and his wife, Betsey, from John and Mary Remick. Deed recorded Alfred, Maine 30 January 1812. The price paid for the land was $165. It was five acres of upland and salt marsh bounded Northerly by the highway leading from James Bartletts to Hugh Kennersons, Westerly [by] Lords land, Southerly partly by said Lords Land and partly by Sturgeon Creek and Easterly partly by said Creek and partly by Nathaniel Staples salt marsh, being part of the estate of Ichabod Stacy.

An interesting note is that Jotham Lord and his wife, Betsey Furbish, were the 4th great grandparents of Kenneth. They were the great grand-parents of Mary Abigail Lord, wife of Daniel Goodwin.

Kenneth started working with his dad, Kenneth Lord Goodwin and his grandfather, Fred Ernest Goodwin while a youngster and bought his first two cows and a couple of calves while in high school. He worked the farm with his father until he retired about 8 years ago. In 1977 he built a new barn and enlarged his herd to 50 Holstein cows.

With the help of his wife and son he raises all the grain and hay needed to feed his herd on 55 acres of cropland and hires an additional 60 acres of land from neighbors. Conservation practices such as planting winter rye on corn fields to prevent erosion, draining and shaping the land, and efficient use of manure and fertilizer have earned him high productivity and recognition.

His wife, Cheryl, and he have 5 sons and one daughter. Cheryl also works in the fields and helps take care of the cows. Their day begins at 4:30 a.m.
Kenneth stated in the article; They were a big help. As each one came along he did his share, then went a-long. Now we are down to the end of the line, I think that's the way to raise a youngster - when they come home from school, they have work to do. When they do go on their own, they have a sense of responsibility. Sounds as if he has a good answer to juvenile delinquency.

The great grandfather of Kenneth, Daniel A. Goodwin of Eliot, farmer and blacksmith, would surely be proud of his great grandson if he were alive. He had a large farm on Goodwin Road in Eliot. See Vol. 2, and Vol. 3, for the life story of his great grandfather.



The following item was extracted from Film #l5289 from the Salt Lake City Genealogical Library. The Town Records of Portsmouth. N.H. under Expenses of the Overseers of the Poor.
On 5 Sept. 1817 Moses GOODWIN was paid $70 for 17 cords and 4 feet of wood. Ed. Note: This was no doubt the son of Daniel GOODWIN and his wife Sarah HOBBS of Eliot, Maine. [I expect this should read: 17 cords CUT 4 feet. (long)]


On March 4, 1637, Pieter Claesen Wyckoff stepped off a Dutch ship in the port of New Amsterdam (now New York) to make his way in the new world. Twelve years later he became superintendent of Peter Stuyvesant's estates and built a wooden house in what is now Brooklyn. On October 1, 1982, the house that Pieter built on the corner of present-day Clarendon Road and Ralph Avenue, will be filled with hundreds of his descendants.
The occasion is the dedication of a new restoration of the original Wyckoff homestead, one of the oldest wooden buildings in the country and the only remaining Dutch building in New York City. That the house still stands is a tribute to the Wyckoff family's staying power.

The family lived in the Brooklyn house until 1901 - a quarter of a millennium - then sold it. In 1937, three hundred years to the day the founder of their American line arrived on these shores, direct descendant Malcolm Wyckoff founded the Wyckoff Family Association (he had roughly ten thousand cousins to enlist), and the association eventually repurchased the property (the outer wings had been demolished to accommodate street and sewer construction). In 1969, the City of New York agreed to accept and restore the house if the Wyckoff Family (and now) House association would maintain it, and after a twelve year wait for funds, the job is nearly complete.

Plans for the house, which will be open to the public, include hosting seasonal Dutch festivities, landscaping to recreate Dutch farm plots, and establishing a library devoted to studying the influence of the Dutch in America. Sure to be included in the library is a book some Wyckoffs are busy preparing - the third edition of the Wyckoff genealogy, by now a forest of family trees.

In Old Kittery and Her Families, an error has been made with regards to the marriage of Daniel GOODWIN'S daughter Sarah. It shows that Sarah GOODWIN married Isaac BARNES, which is the way it reads in the Berwick town records. However, through a long roundabout search, I learned that Isaac BARNES is really Isaac BARRON of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, a third - generation descendant of Ellis and Grace BARRON of Watertown, Massachusetts. This information was found in two genealogical articles which appear in The Boston Transcript genealogical columns which I quote, verbatim, in part:

September 20, 1920 (Reference # 7208) Excerpt from article:

The wife of Isaac BARRON of Chelmsford, was Sarah GOODWIN of Berwick, Maine, daughter of Daniel GOODWIN and Margaret SPENCER, Margaret being the daughter of Thomas SPENCER, who came in 1630 and who married Patience CHADBOURNE, who was the daughter of William CHADBOURNE, who came to the colonies in 1631, sailing in the Pied Cow with other artificers, the chiefest of whom was CHADBOURNE, who built the great house at Strawberry Bank.

Isaac BARRON and Sarah GOODWIN were married at Berwick, December 6, 1694. It had long been a mystery to me how, in those days when distances were great, young Isaac found a wife so far from home, but when I discovered that he was sent, with other troops, on garrison duty to Berwick during King William's War, and was quartered at the inn kept by Sarah's father, the mystery was explained by the romance of their meeting.

Isaac BARRON is buried in Forefather's Cemetery, Chelmsford, and his gravestone says Died September 6, 1739, aged 67 years, 9 M, --- Days.

February 7, 1934 (Reference #7899) Excerpt from article:
Sergeant Isaac BARRON and ten men were stationed at Neuitchawanock, Province of Maine, during the winter of 1693 and 1694 (Mass. Military Records). [Williamson's History of Maine says Neuitchawanock was a military post in the limits of Berwick, Maine.]
December 2, 1694, Isaac BARNES and Sarah GOODWIN were married at Berwick (Town Records). September 29, 1695, a daughter is born to Isaac BARRON and Sarah his wife (Chelmsford Records). It looks like another case of substitution of BARNES for BARRON, a not uncommon mistake which should be kept in mind by all whose lines run back to the BARNES or BARRON family. This Sarah GOODWIN was the daughter of Daniel GOODWIN and Margaret SPENCER (Old Kittery and Her Families by John S. Goodwin, 1898).

The above two articles also go into detail of the children of Isaac and Sarah GOODWIN BARRON, two of which I descend from. As far as I know, Isaac and Sarah had four daughters, whose births can be found in Chelmsford, Mass. Vital Records.

The sixth annual reunion of the descendants of Daniel GOODWIN, who settled in Kittery in 1652, took place at Quamphegan Park, South Berwick, last Thursday. The attendance was considerably smaller than in past years. A basket picnic was enjoyed at noon and was followed by the business meeting in the casino at two o'clock, with the president, Mr. Moses E. GOODWIN of Eliot in the chair. An excellent address of welcome was given by Mr. Fred A. HOBBS of South Berwick. The recording secretary, Mrs. Ella E. PLUMER of Rollinsford gave a detailed report of the last reunion which was of particular interest.
The president then appointed the following committee to bring in a list of officers for the ensuing year: Charles A. Goodwin, Rollinsford; James W. Goodwin, South Berwick; Richard L. Goodwin, Berwick. The following committee on resolutions was next appointed: Mrs. Ella E. Plumer, Rollinsford; Fred A. Hobbs, South Berwick; Richard L. Goodwin, South Berwick.
The treasurer's report was given by Mr. Charles A. Goodwin and showed a balance on the right side of the ledger. The report of the nominating committee was also made by Mr. Goodwin and the following officers were elected for the ensuing year:
