Debbie, I am sorry. I did not find any connection yet. I did not find a John from Goodenow, Will County, IL who could have had a son born in 1934. However, I still believe that we might have a connection somewhere along the way. My family from my ggg-grandmother down is not in this Book either. I did not found this book until about one year ago, through the Goodenow Family Assocation. Maybe you can write and get your grandfather's death certificate, and/or look thorough census information to find his father's name. Keep me in mind, and if you can get some more information, please contact me directly and I will be glad to look again.
