My great great grandfather's name was Alford(Alfred) Goodell. From the little information I have he was born in 1831 in New York. He was married on 19 April, 1857 to Helen Elizabeth Phelps who was born 6 Oct., 1837 in Rouse, NY.I know that they also lived in Wisc. at some point. Is he related to your Goodell family?
