Seeking information on the family of Joseph GOODWIN and Nellie unknown.This is the next to the last query about the James Horace Goodwin family.
Joseph is the6th son and 8th child of Dr. James Horace Goodwin and Ruth NEGLEY.Joseph was probably born in Tarentum or Deer Twp., Allegheny Co., PA and accompanied his family to Clark Co., Missouri before the 1860 census.In the 1870 census, Joseph is listed with his mother and two brothers in Ottumwa, Wapello Co., IA
He apparently marriedNellie unknown sometime between 1870 and 1875 but we don’t know where.Nellie was born inOhio in about 1856.
In 1880 the couple and their young son, Willie, are listed in Des Moines, Polk Co., IAwhere Joseph is working as a RR engineer.Nellie apparently dies sometime before 1900 and Joseph isidentified as a widower in the 1900 census, living in WEBER Co., UT and still working as a RR engineer.
I could not find any trace of him after the 1900 census.
