Gordon Edward Greenwood's Family Album

My Goodman Grandparents

Maude Armstrong Goodman Samuel Goodman and son Gordon Goodman

My grandmother, Maud Edna (Armstrong) Goodman, was born June 28, 1884, in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. Her parents were John "Andrew" Armstrong, born October 11, 1847 in Kentucky, and Nancy "Nannie" (Hikes) Armstrong, born November 15, 1855 i n Jefferson County, KY.
My grandfather, Samuel Newmeyer Goodman, was born on East 54th Street in New York City on June 7, 1880. His father was  Abraham Gutmann, an immigrant  who was born in Bavaria in 1849. His mother was Rosa Neumeier, an immigrant from Württemberg born in 1852. Grandpa Sam and Uncle Gordon are pictured above.
Maud  married my grandfather, Samuel Newmeyer Goodman, on August 28, 1905, in Louisville. They had 2 children, my uncle, Gordon Armstrong Goodman, born March 25, 1908 in Paducah, KY, and my mother, Annette Rose born July 08, 1915, in Louisville. They spent much of their lives in Jasonville, Greene County, Indiana. Maud died November 9, 1966, in Dayton, Clark County, Ohio. We have Maud's Bible. In it was a woman's picture that is unidentified. Click here if you would like to see it. Perhaps it matches one in your family album.  Sam's siblings, in birth order,  were Bertha, Ann (Hannah), Samuel, and Frieda, who were all born in New York, Minnie and David L., who were born in Kentucky.  The Gutmann family Americanized their name to Goodman and left New York City when Sam was very young. They moved to the Glasgow area of Barren County, Kentucky, and lived there  about 8 years, during which time their father, Abraham, died in 1890, leaving Rosa with six children.  The family then moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where he eventually met and married Maud (who signed her name without an "e" at the end).
The 1900 census shows the family in Louisville, KY, with grandpa Sam, 19, listed as a tailor.
The 1910 census has them living in Paducah, KY, with baby Gordon and Maud's mother, Nannie Armstrong. By 1916 they had moved to Jasonville, Indiana.
The 1920 census of Jasonville, Indiana, shows that Maud's mother, Nannie Armstrong, 65,  was living with them.
