John Goodrich, eldest surviving s. of Ens. William Goodrich and Sarah Marvin, purportedly b. May 20, 1653 in Wethersfield, Conn. He d. Sept. 5, 1730, Æ 78. He m. on Mar. 28, 1678 in Charlestown, Mass. (by Rev. Mr. Danforth), Rebecca Allen, dau. of Capt. John and Sarah Allen. She was b. in Charlestown in Feb. 1659/60 and was living Sept. 6, 1716, but the date of her death is not of record.

Case in The Goodrich Family (1889) and Stiles in his Ancient Wethersfield (1900) both claim John was born in Wethersfield May 20, 1653, although Stiles gives his entry as "20 May [1652-Weth. Rec.] 1653." However, there is no birth entry for John in the Wetherfield printed vital records. Case further claimed John died in Wethersfield Sept. 5, 1730 whereas Stiles claimed he died "circa 1737, ae. 84." No probate record can be found; both John and wife Rebecca are assumed interred in Wethersfield with no surviving gravestones.
