Hello, you have an unusual situation here regarding the names that make your research difficult. I do notice that in listing the children you missed Louis Goodrich
who is shown with his mother Isabel Goodrich and brothers Leonida and Sobeisha in the 1880 census, staying with her parent Cyrus H. James at San Saba, TX.  I would like to
know more about this family and see what we can find out. Would you please contact me offsite at gfadelores (no space) so we can look into this lineage further?
Thank you,
Delores Goodrick Beggs

This family changed surnames several times; nevertheless, we have the complete lineage worked out. The lineage appears in the December, 2012 Goodrich Family Association Quarterly, which went to press last week. If you are not on the Quarterly distribution list, you can contact me at and I will email you a copy and add you to the distribution list. The Goodrich Family Association's Quarterlies are free, but you need to request to be added to the mailing list. They come as an e-mail attachment.
