William H. Goodell


William H. Goodell, nearly a lifelong resident of this town, died at his home on upper Main Street Tuesday morning. He had been in ill health the past year and since Sunday had been unconscious all of the time.

The funeral services will be held from the home Thursday afternoon, the Rev. George Goodliffe officiating, and burial will take place in Stowe.

William H. Goodell was born in Sterling 81 years ago on the 29th of last April, the son of William and Louisa Sargent Goodell. Fifty four years ago last March he was united in marriage to Aldora Waite daughter of B. F. and Eliabeth Shaw Waite. To this union were born three sons, Fred, Frank, and Mark Goodell, who, with Mrs. Goodell, survive.

The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted with the 7th Vermont Regiment, and serving nearly during the whole war. He re-enlisted for additional service after receiving an honorable discharge.

Mr. Goodell was for many years a prosperous farmer on West Hill, coming to this village a few years ago to reside. Except for a short time spent in Stowe his whole life was lived in the town where he was one of its most highly respected citizens.

Deep sympathy of the community is extended the family in their bereavement.


Funeral services for William H. Goodell were held at his late home on Upper Main Street Thursday afternoon, the Rev. Geo. Goodliffe, of the Congregational Church officiated, and burial was made in the River Bank Cemetery in Stowe. Members of the G.A.R. and WRC attended in a body, and the bearers were members of the former organization, A. N. St. Louis, A. C. Sulham, S. L. Ring, and A. M. Adams. Among the floral tributes were; A pillow from the S. of VT., spray of gladiolas from the Auxiliary, spray of roses from the G.A.R., aside from many other species from neighbors and friends.

Those present from out of town to attend the funeral were: Mr. &. Mrs. Frank Parady, the latter a granddaughter of the deceased, and a grandson, Harrison Goodell, of Stowe.
