    Note
    • The E. R. Goheen is Edward Rufus Goheen (he went by Rufus). He was a teacher and married Margaret Hardman Miller. From what I've been able to fine, William & his wife Frances Nicely Goheen went with their son James (and William's three daughters by a previous marriage) to Indiana in 1834. Rufus was born around that same time; family records passed down to me indicate he was born in 1833 in VA, but other information I've dug up indicates he was born in 1834 in IN.
      From here, William & Frances went with their sons (I don't know about the three girls) to Greene County, IA in 1852. Rufus married Margaret Hardman, whose previous marriage was to a gracer named Miller (my family records don't list a first name). Margaret had three sons by a previous marriage, named John, Marion, and Joshua. Rufus and Margaret had five children of their own: Josephine, Mary, Albert, William, and Oscar.
      Albert was my great-great grandfather. I don't know anything about his siblings other than their names and approximate birthdays. But Albert was married in MN in 1887, and was in OR or WA by 1890. I don't know whether Rufus and Margaret came west at the same time, but my records indicate that both Rufus and Margaret are buried in Vancouver, WA, which is on the other side of the Columbia River from Portland,OR.
