Goodenow Family Genealogy Forum
I have a Leander Goodnow/Goodenow born abt 1833 married Anna Santee in 1859. an unknown female Goodenow married Nelson Pangborn (his mother was Margaret Santee). Anna and Margaret were sisters. So far all family from these Santees stuck around in the PA and Ohio areas. Ringing any bells with anyone? Leander and Anna had 5 children: Carrie, Fred, Edward, Frank and Laura who married a John Ballard. They had Ethel, but Laura died the following year and her sister (or sister-in-law maybe?) took care of Ethel. The Goodnow's were Protestants and went to court to keep Ethel, as John Ballard remarried to Nellie Green, an Irish Catholic. This is about all I know.
Thanks for any help!
