Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 16 Nov. 1911. Garber column.
Jerome Goodsell died at 5 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 12th, lacking but two days of being 70 years of age. In the year 1862 at Lee, Mass., he was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Dorgan. He enlisted in the 61st regiment of Massachusetts volunteers and mustered out near Alexandria, Va., in 1865. He came to Iowa in 1868, locating in Clayton county and has been a continuous resident. His occupation was that of a carpenter until he received a stroke of paralysis, on March 25th, 1892, which rendered him an almost helpless invalid. On Sunday morning he suffered another stroke and passed peacefully away a few minutes later. Although sadly afflicted for nearly twenty years his many years of suffering were born with great patience and fortitude. He was at all times most happy to receive calls from neighbors and friends. His kindly smile will be missed by many but God has released him from all mortal pain and we humbly say, His will be done for we know that all is well with him in Eternity. The latter years of his life he became a member of the Catholic church and died fortified by its religion. He is survived by his faithful companion of nearly 50 years, also by 3 sons and 2 daughters. Two sons, Charles and Delbert, having preceded him several years ago. The children are: Mrs. F. J. Kriebs, of Elkport; U. C. Goodsell, of Stockwood, Minn.; Perry, of Waterloo; Mrs. M. (looks like Stence) of Elkader; and Henry, of Lamotte; also one sister, Mrs. Harriet Couch, of Northville, Conn. The funeral was held on Tuesday, Father Minogue officiating. May he rest in peace.
