    1. [MIIONIA] GOODFELLOW Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of R. H. GOODFELLOW of Clarksville, MI which was taken at the O. D. Stevens Studio in Clio, MI sometime in the 1880's or 1890's. He is likely in his 20's or 30's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I believe that this is a photograph of Robert H. GOODFELLOW and I've been able to gather the following information regarding Robert and his family: Robert H. GOODFELLOW was b. 16 Apr 1864 in Valcartier Village, Quebec, Canada to parents John GOODFELLOW (b. 2 Jan 1832 in Valcartier, Quebec, Canada-1903) and Sarah or Sara PINKNEY or PINKENNY (1835-1906). Robert was one of 8 children born to this couple including, Robert; Abraham; Janet Ann; Robert H.; John J.; Benjamin Thomas; Edman or Edmond; and William Whillian GOODFELLOW, all born between 1860 and 1875 in Quebec Province. Robert married Leno or Lena Loretta YORK (b. 26 Oct 1878 in Atlas Township, Genesee Co. MI-d. 27 Nov 1948 in Castle Rock, WA - dau of Jeremiah F. YORK and Rachel Ann BAXTER) on 1 Sept 1897 in Goodrich, MI. At the time of their marriage Robert was living in Clio, MI, they later lived in Clarksville, MI where Robert owned a Drug Company called R. H. Goodfellow & Company. The couple went onto have 5 children including, Robert Lee; Rachel I.; Warren Casper; Loretta Leno or Lena; and Lola Lillian GOODFELLOW, all born between 1898 and 1916. Robert died 30 Apr 1932 in Castle Rock, WA and is buried in the Whittle and Hubbard Cemetery in Castle Rock, WA.
