Hi Steve, Thanks for the contact you made to Conway. It's a small world and my brother was visiting Edna and one of her children sent me the message. I talked with her and my brother by phone Friday. I 've been researching for some time trying to solve the Susan Goodno to Susie Goodno problem. I have found records (VR) in Center Conway, New Hampshire state Susie Goodno married Herbert Smith November 8, 1899 in Conway, and her father was Henry Goodno (b. Gorham) and mother Katherine Finnigan (Emerald Isles, Ireland). Now I have to continue with Liz and Helen listed born to Susan. Plus a new name Finnigan. Fortunately I have a contact in Ireland who is helping. Ted Banvard's book list Katherine with a C' and the vital records show 'K'. But to me either could be correct as the town clerk probably recored the spell he knew or the book could be incorrect. Another item

  4. War of 1812- Henry Goodno enlisted in the Army and was made a recruiting officer. He recruited 15 or 20 men in Shelburne and at once, on orders from General Wilson, started with his small company of recruits across the country to join in the expedition against the English in Canada. He never returned home againas he was wounded in the battle of Three Rivers. Province of Quebec, and taken prisoner. When he was released after peace was declared and started home, upon reaching Plattsburg, New York, complications set in and he died. This may have been the first war casualty from Shelburne Addition. He left a family of eight children and his wife.
