GOODCHILD, Marie/Mary married to GOODCHILD, John. I am researching
my GG Grandmother. On her death certificate it states she was born on Aug
9, 1822 in Canada (daughter of GAGNAN, Maud) and she died on August 12,
1905 in Wabeno, WI. She was buried in Stephenson, MI. I have a 1900 Federal
Census of MI/Menominee County, Town of Spaulding record that shows Mary
GOODCHILD at the residence of PERKINS, Willam & Judy (my G Grandparents)
also living there was GOODCHILD, David and Napoleon. Lucy Goodchild Perkins
died around 1902. I have not been able to locate her death records but
do know that she was buried somewhere around Spalding, MI. Marie Goodchild's
death certificate has her buried in Stephenson, MI which is approx. 20
miles south of Spalding which could mean she wanted to be buried near her
daughter? Any information on the GOODCHILD family would be greatly appreciated.
WANTED: The names of the newspapers that published local information
on the towns of Laona and Wabeno during the 1890 to 1930 timeframe. Also,
what were the names of cemeteries in Laona and Wabeno? Thank you, Linda
