I am looking for information on Ira and Elmer Goodenough.The only information that I have on them is the following:
Ira Goodenough(no dates) married: Margaret Darnell (b. 1861 d.-?)
Elmer Goodenough (no dates) married: Elizabeth Darnell (b. Jul 16 1865 d. Oct 18, 1936)
Margaret and Elizabeth were sisters, andI believe that Elmer and Ira were brothers.The only other thing I have is a short transcripte taken from the book "History of Sherman Township" by Fred L. Kent the transcript reads:
"School district number 5 was organized in 1879.Wm J. Darnell and H.M. GOODENOUGH built the first school house for which they received $50.(The Darnell school was known through out the area until recent years)The first school officers were: Director W.J. Darnell; assessor H.M. GOODENOUGH; moderator Winfield Bly.The first teacher was Miss Maggie Ruxton, the scholars were: Marion F. Martin, Lyman and Sammie GOODENOUGH, Wm.,James,Elijah and Alvira Darnell and Charles Sutherlan....
