Eliza A. Goodenow

1820 - 1891


Another old settler of Watertown, Mrs. Eliza A. Goodenow, has passed to the other shore.


Her death occurred in Milwaukee, January 10, 1891, from the effects of a paralytic stroke received the day previous. A similar visitation she suffered some years ago had left her constitution enfeebled and in a comparatively helpless condition. But she bore up under the trial with true Christian fortitude and was always strengthened with the hope of a life beyond the grave where suffering would be unknown.


Mrs. Goodenow was the relict of the late Case Goodenow, and came to Watertown, then a mere village, with her husband in the year 1843.


She was born at Bergen, New York, September 5, 1820, and was therefore in her 71st year.


Mrs. Goodenow leaves two sons, George and Charles, and an adopted son, Henry.


For some years past she had made her home in Milwaukee with the first named.


Thirty-five years before her death she had united with the Watertown Congregational Church and from that church of her choice her funeral was held . . . The funeral rites were conducted by Rev. J. M. Campbell and her body was committed to the earth in Oak Hill Cemetery.
