OBITUARY ~ ALBERT LOUIS GOODMAN

Albert Goodman passed away at the home of his son, Frank Goodman, last Wednesday, Aug. 27 [1941], after a short illness following a paralytic stroke which occurred less than a week before his death. He was one of the pioneer settlers of the Clearfield neighborhood.

Albert Louis, eldest son of Jacob and Frederika Goodman, was born January 2, 1856, at Bluffton, Ohio, and died at the home of his son, Frank Goodman, in Clearfield, August 27 [1941], at the age of 85 years, 7 months, and 25 days.

The home of his youth was broken by the death of his father in 1860 and following the close of the Civil War, the mother came with her two sons to Ringgold County, Iowa. Being pioneer settlers they experience trials and struggles of the early days which went far in forming characters.

In 1875, Mr. Goodman was married to Amanda Hankins and to this union six children were born. Two daughters, Maud Goff and Addie Fitzgerald, and one son, Albert Lee, preceded their father in death.

In 1898 the family moved to a farm 5 miles southeast of Clearfield and there they prospered and formed many lasting friendships. Since Mrs. Goodman's death in 1932, Mr. Goodman spent time in town with his son, Frank, but occasionally he would return to the old home. It was while there on one of his infrequent visits that he was stricken with his final illness on Aug. 23, 1941.

He leaves to mourn his passing, two sons, Frank of Clearfield and John L. of Creston, and one daughter, Mrs. Florence McMath of Clearfield, a brother, John of Wolf Point, Montana, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, four half brothers and one half sister and many other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at the Church of Christ on Friday afternoon, Aug. 29 [1941], with Rev. W. Coverdale in the pulpit. Pallbearers were Tom House, Sherman Davis, Roy Nickle, Archie Calkins, Harry Morey and Frank Hargin. Burial was made in the Clearfield cemetery.
