Goodrich Family - Index to Posts

An Index Post is how I keep track of all of the blog posts that have been written on a family line. It helps keep me organized and allows visitors to easily find information on that family. This post will be updated as new blog posts are written on the family. Please contact me at if you are researching this family or have additional information on them.

William Goodrich is my 10th great grandfather and my immigrant ancestor in the Goodrich line. In 1648 he married Sarah Marvin in Hartford County in the Connecticut Colony. The Goodrich clan remained in Connecticut for over 150 years and it is possible that some of William's descendants still live there. However, my 6th great grandfather, John Goodrich, removed to Ohio with his family about 1805. John's wife was Abigail Price and they would have nine children. Their firstborn child, Bela, was my 5th great grandfather and he would settle in Whitley County, Indiana in 1838.

So. Do you?

The only Emma Goodrich that I know of was born in 1864, married Eli Miller in 1891, and died in 1944. So, no, I don't know an 11 year old girl named Emma Goodrich.

Becky, I am looking for any information on a Herbert Goodrich born in Connecticut in 1889, married to Anna Bugbee (my Great Grandmother). I can not seem to find any info on his lineage beyond 1889. I would appreciate any info you may have.
