My Great-Grandfather, Police Lieutenant Willaim "HENRY" Goodman, husband of Anna Kehler-Bentz Goodman, father of Maude Esther, Emma Rae, George Leard and William Herbert "Herb" Goodman. He was born in Ashland, PA., son of Catharine and Jonathon M. (John) Goodman of Shenandoah. Siblings were Matilda "Tilley", Catharine "Kate", Ida Jane and John. Henry was raising his family in Shenadoah Heights when he died of heart related problems one month short of age 39 in Shenandoah, PA. Henry was of high character, loving son, husband and father. He was a 1st Lieutenant in the Shenandoah Regular Police Dept.. a member of Washington Camp #206 Patriotic Order, Sons of America fraternity and the Shenandoah Hook and Ladder Company. Prior to his police career he worked as Boss Loader at the Kehler Run Colliery in Shenandoah. He was active in politics and other civic orgnaizations and had a large circle of influential friends according to his obituary. The funeral was stated in the Shenandoah Evening Herald as largest in town's history at that time. His origianl Hook & Ladder stone is still in place alongside his new stone placed November, 2012 by two of his great-granddaughters in his memory.
