    Goodrich—In the National Soldiers' Home in Milwaukee, Wis., June 24, 1909, Mr. Charles Henry Goodrich, aged 80 years and 21 days. Mr. Goodrich was the onlv son of Asa Goodrich and was born in Weathersfield, Mass., June 3. 1829. His father, a brother of the Hon. Joseph Goodrich, so well known by our people in western New York and southern Wisconsin, moved his family to Wisconsin when Charles was fifteen years of age. His second wife, to whom he was married January 13, 1867, was the oldest daughter of the late Horace Hamilton of Milton, and the widow of Joshua Davis, a son of Jeremiah Davis of Hartsville, New York—early settlers in Wisconsin. Mrs. Goodrich and their only son survive him. Early in the Civil War, Mr. Goodrich enlisted for a term of three months. This being completed, he again enlisted, for three years, or during the war, and was assigned to the 13th Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers, one company of which was comnosed largely of Milton men. He was mustered out of service with his regiment after the close of the war. For a period of twenty-one years they lived at Independence, Kansas, during which time he was converted to Christ and united with the Baptist Church of that place. In this church he held membership at the time of his death. For several years next preceding his death he suffered much from rheumatism and other infirmities, clue to the exposures and hardships of army life, all of which he bore with great fortitude. Ps. xc, 10. L. A. P.
