Robert Goodenow
Birth: Apr. 19, 1800
Henniker
Merrimack County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: May 15, 1874
Farmington
Franklin County
Maine, USA

US Congressman. Elected as a Whig to represent Maine's 3rd District in the Thirty-second Congress, he served from 1851 to 1853. Raised in Brownfield, Maine from the age of two, he studied medicine before switching to law, was admitted to the bar in 1822 and became a practicing attorney in Franklin County. In 1832 he settled in Farmington. Goodenow's single term in the US House was uneventful and he failed to win renomination in 1852. He served as Franklin County Attorney from 1828 to 1834 and from 1869 to 1870, and County Treasurer from 1866 to 1868; in his last years he was active as a banker. He died in Farmington. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
