Benjamin Jackson Goodwin

M, (31 May 1831 - 8 April 1895)
     Benjamin Jackson Goodwin was born on 31 May 1831 at Peru, Clinton County, NY, USA. He was the son of James Prentiss Goodwin and Roxanna (Roxa) Leete. Benjamin Jackson Goodwin died on 8 April 1895 at Douglas Twp, Bremer County, IA, USA, at age 63. He was buried at Richland Twp Cemetery, at Chickasaw County, IA, USA.

     Benjamin was a physician and a farmer. He was in the practice of homeopathy...was not a graduate of a medical school, according to the 19 April 1887 register of Physicians and Midwives in the Chickasaw County Historical Museum. That register says he was born in New York, that he was certified by the Iowa State Board of Health March 16, 1887 & that his address was c/o Douglas Twp Post Office, Bremer Co, Iowa.

Benjamin may have been born Aug. 4, 1831, as some records show, but his tombstone says he was born 31 March 1831. Some records show them married in Winnebago Co, IL, but the records of Boone Co, IL show them being married in Boone Co 31 March 1856. That discrepancy is no discrepancy at all; actually they are the same. That's because Boone Co was formerly part of Winnebago Co.

The farm they lived on in Douglas Twp was purchased in 1855. It was later owned/occupied by their grandson Jesse M. Goodwin. That farm was at the very NE corner of Sec 4, the NE 4th of the NE qtr of the section. The house was at the NW part of that farm, facing Chickasaw County across the road north. Immediately south of the edge of their farm was the farm of Joseph and Eliza Daddow in 1875. That proximity resulted in some weddings!

The farm Goodwins had in Bremer Co, IA was in the family over 100 yrs...passing from Benj. to his son Jesse, then to Jesse's son Norman who never married and then willed the farm at his death in 1971 to Rev. Garner Armstrong, a cult-like, later discredited religious leader in Pasadena, CA, upsetting his sisters and the rest of the family!
According to Donna (Leaman) Henry who has researched the Goodwin lines, most of the Goodwins were short in physical stature.

Dr Goodwin must have been a Justice of the Peace, too. There is this item in the February 11, 1886 issue of the Waverly, Iowa Waverly Republican: "Feb. 7--Miss Florence Saddler and a gentleman from Manchester by the name of Bushnell were married at the residence of the bride's parents, last Thursday, Mr. B. J. Goodman officiating."
Dr Goodwin died at 1:00 AM. His funeral was the following Wednesday at 1:30 PM at the Greenwood School House.
The Bradford Museum near the Little Brown Church at Nashua, Iowa has an old "Register of Physicians and Midwives," in which B. J. Goodwin signed in in his own handwriting, on April 19, 1887, stating that he was age 56, practiced Homeopathy, was a native of New York, resided at Nashua, Chickasaw County, Iowa and Douglas Twp., Bremer County, Iowa, had practiced Homeopathy about 16 years, all those years having been in Iowa, and that his Certificate from the Iowa Board of Health to practice was dated March 16, 1887, and in the column titled "Name of Medical College" he simply wrote "Not a graduate." Benjamin was a homeopathic physician in the Nashua, Iowa area.

His was the most northern homestead, in Bremer County, Iowa.

His medical kit is reportedly on display in the Chickasaw County Historical Museum, Nashua, Iowa.

     Cordelia spent the early years of her life in New York state. At age 11 she, with her parents, moved from NY to Durand, IL. There she became a member of the Baptist Church. She remained a Baptist all her life. She and her parents moved, in 1856, to Bremer County, Iowa. She married James S. Leaman in 1858. She taught school in Fredricka and Bradford Twp schools in Bremer Co. She and her husband, and their unmarried Childenmoved to Nashua, Iowa in 1892. She died in her home in Nashua on Saturday morning. Her funeral was Monday, March 26 at 2:00 PM in the Baptist Church.

There is some confusion about her date of birth. We've seen July 2, 1836, Feburay 7, 1838, and August 2, 1838.
