I have confirmed my suspicion through the beta LDS site that my
g-grandparents lived in Scotland before emigrating to northern Michigan in
the USA. This is a really exciting discovery for me; although I only a
second generation American, no one in my family know where we are from except
to say we are Cornish. I am obsessed with discovering where to "put my foot
down across the pond" as one of my cousins described it.
This is the birth record of my great aunt that made it hard for me to sleep
Emma Elisabeth Goodman
born January 08, 1871
Loudoun, Ayr, Scotland
Batch number: C116031 International Genealogical Index
Her parents are Samuel Goodman [b. February 22, 1836, son of Sam Goodman and
Elizabeth Maker] and Elisabeth Broad [b. March 01, 1840, daughter of William
Broad]. The Goodmans emigrated to the US in 1872 with their three children,
this baby and my grandfather William Broad Goodman [b. April 01, 1866] and
Jane Ann Goodman [b. May 21, 1860]. Unfortunatley, the IGI did not reveal
birth records for William and Jane Ann. Samuel was a miner and I suspect the
family moved from Cornwall to Scotland for employment after economic collapse
of the mining industry in Cornwall in 1866.
I was so excited to make this discovery, it has been a real breakthrough!
I've not had any luck 'til now, partly because I restricted my search to
Cornwall and partly because I had the maiden names mixed up.
So now the query for this list is, does anyone have any info on:
Samuel GOODMAN, I estimate he was born between 1790 and 1820
Elizabeth MAKER, also estimate she was born between 1790 and 1820
William BROAD, also estimate he was born between 1790 and 1820
These would be my g-g-grandparents. I assume they lived in the same
community since their children married, is that a pretty safe assumption?
Thanks for your help!
