Rebel E. Goddard of Harrodsburg, Mercer Co., KY - rqst. for gravestone photo

Rebel E. Goddard, familiarly known as Reb Goddard and usually referred to in published articles as R.E. Goddard, was a distinguished citizen of Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

He was known for being a good judge of horses, as a horse breeder, the Superintendent of the U.S. Army Remount Depot at Fort Knox, KY, during World War I, and many other things.

He was also elected the Clerk of the District Court in Comanche County, Kansas, in 1888. He was one of the earliest settlers of the city of Coldwater in that county.

His obituary, two letters he wrote to The Western Star in Comanche County, Ks, in 1921 and much more information about his life and times is online at Rootsweb here:

His burial place is unknown to me but I strongly suspect that it is in Spring Hill Cemetery, Harrodsburg, Mercer County, Kentucky, which is where his wife's obituary states that she was buried. She died before him.

I would be very grateful for a photograph (or photographs) of their gravestone or gravestones for use on the aforecited web page. Credit, of course, would be given to the contributor of such photos on the contributor's page at my Rootsweb site:

Thank you,

Jerry Ferrin
