For several years Lydia's maiden name was thought to be "Bliss." However, with the availability of more and more records online, new research has shown that her maiden name was "Bradish" and that she was the daughter of Robert and Abigail "Naby" (Jackson) Bradish.

The death record for Lydia has that she was 80 years and 7 months old at the time of her death August 21, 1880. This fits with the various censuses which place her birth year anywhere from 1800 to 1801. Her gravestone has what appears to be her age as 80 yrs, which would make her birth year 1800.

Lydia married Salem Goodnough about 1818. The couple had ten children, nine boys and one girl. They were, Eli, Lafayette, Alfred, Martin V., Ira E., Charles D., John, Alonzo, Sarah and Myron Goodnough.

In Calais records the couple were listed as having celebrated 62 years before Lydia passed away in 1880.

Lydia passed away August 21, 1880 and is buried in the Old West Church Cemetery.
