Miss Emily A. Goodenow died at Washington, D.C.. May 15, 1872. She had been a clerk in the Treasury Department since 1865. She had been somewhat indisposed for some time, but had been out every day and was out walking on the day of her death. She had a sudden attack of hemorrhage of the lungs and lived only about three hours after. She was 42 years of age, a lady of fine culture.

When the Civil War broke out she was governess in the family of Hon. Humphrey Marshall of Virginia, afterwards Gen. Marshall of the Confederate Army. With much difficulty she succeeded in coming north, leaving her pay for her service and much of her wardrobe behind. Reaching Washington, she became a teacher in the freedmen's school, depending for her compensation on voluntary contributions.

She was a very graceful and ready writer. She was the youngest child of Hon. Rufus K. and Jane (Bean) Goodenow of this town.
