R. P. Goodall

26 Apr 1906 St. James, Mo.

April 22, Captain R.P. Goodall, superintendent of the Federal Soldier's Home at this place, died at the home this morning at 1 o'clock of heart failure.Captain Goodall was prominent in Southwest Missouri politics for many years. He resided at Lebanon for thirty years, during which time he served as sheriff of Laclede county for ten years and collector for four years. In 1889 he was made superintendent of the Soldier's Home which position he held until death. The body was taken to Lebanon for interment, accompanied by many Masons of this place and Rolla. The funeral services at Lebanon were conducted by the Masons of that city. He is survived by a widow and one son. Captain Goodall was a potent factor to southwest Missouri. As superintendent of the Federal Soldier's Home at St. James, he made a record for honesty, courage and character that will rebound to his credit for all time.
