Capt. Smith Goodno is dead. He was born in Hancock in 1810 and was one of five brothers, the sons of Luther Goodno. Mr. Goodno moved here 40 years ago and later to Ogdensburg and Canton, N. Y., where he was prominent in business and politics. He served through the war in the 142d regiment and contracted the disease which ultimately caused his death. He has lived with Edgar Piper, a nephew, at whose house he died. Fifty-six years ago he was married to Miss Maria Stockwell of Cornwall, who survives him. Two of his brothers, Hiram of Ogdensburg and George of Cleveland, are living. The funeral will be held Thursday forenoon and the interment will be in the new cemetery at West Cornwall.
