Wm Goodridge b 1 jun 1820 or 1 Feb 1820 went west to IL, Roseville and Ellison and he is in the 1960 census listed as Wm Smith with Abby Ann Nichols. His wife in Danvers is still living and caring for all his kids from their marriage and the previous one. Wesley Goodridge was b 1854 in Danvers but Abby Ann Nichols and he aka Wm Smith have Edward Smith in Sep 1956. Still looking for his parents as his death headstone is as Wm Smith in Denison, IA. No death certificate can be found. Very strange and the obit. doesn't mention parents or sibs. Father allegedly is a Sea Captain out of eastern MA Help if you can please.
