Greetings from Utica New York, home to Rev. Chauncey Enoch Goodrich the father of the "Garnet Chili" potato.  I have no relationship to the Goodrich family however I have spent the last two months researching Rev. Goodrich and today found his gravestone.  He is buried at Forest Hills Cemetery in Utica, NY with his wife, Margaret (Tracy), and three of his four daughters: Anna, Cornelia and Susan.  Rachel is not found with the rest of the family.  I intend to bring to the attention of not only Uticans, but the larger horticultural community the life and work of Rev. Chauncey.  Any family members that would like more information or photographs of his grave site found today, please feel free to contact me!  Sincerely, Debra Richardson:
