William Franklin GOEDERT II, was born on March 3, 1877 in

in Essex and owned a shop. I would like to find out more
information on him. 2nd Important* My Great Great Grandfather,
William Franklin GOEDERT, I have nothing but a discharge paper
from Minnesota in 1866. I know nothing else on him. I am sure
that he came to Missouri since that is where most of my family
is from, But I would also like to find out more about him. I am
limited in travel, I just took a vacation, so I have no time to
travel. I am limited in finances, I just bought a house, so I
cannot spend hundreds of dollars having another organization
research for me. Besides I would like to do this myself. I know
it is going to be hard work, but I believe it will be worth it.
So, where do I go from here?? What do I do next?? Is there any
way you have sources of info that could be of help?? Any
suggestions or help you could give me would be greatly
appreciated! Thanks. Jerry Lee Goedert Jr 3500 11 Mile Rd
