Searching for info on William Yates Goodell (b 1867, d 11/11/1944) who married Nora Flint (b ca 1871 Mo., d 3/29/1959), daughter of Larkin S. Flint who was born in Missouri in 1847 and lived in Fremont, NE after leaving MO. He may also have lived in California at some time. Nora and William Goodell married about 1891 and lived in Sutter, Sacramento Co. CA at the time of the 1900 census and had been married nine years at that time. This census shows Will being born in New York. I know nothing of Will Goodell's family. By 1908 he and Nora had moved to Norfolk, Nebraska. They had at least four children, William Larkin, Hattie Mae, Leslie, and Leland, born between 1893 and 1910. I am interested in the ancestry of William Y. Goodell and would love to locate and correspond with any descendants of his & Nora's children.
In 1935 there was a Will Goodell living in Crawford, NE. He was a son of Francis Charles Goodell and had a brother Franklin Charles Goodell. In 1880 THIS family was living in Everett, Burt Co, Ne. and THIS Will was listed as born in Michigan. Is the Will in Crawford in 1935, the same as my Will who married Nora Flint? I have my doubts, but would like a little more info on him before dismissing him as a possibility.
Thanks for any help you can give. Jane Gerrish Waddell
