     Catherine L. Goodwin
of Chelmsford, MA and Ogunquit, Maine,
Local historian

CHELMSFORD -- Catherine L. Goodwin, 89, of Chelmsford, died on June 15, 2011, in Lowell.

Born in Dracut, MA to Roland M. and Louisa Pearce Hill. Catherine married John A. Goodwin in 1943, and raised four children in Lowell and Chelmsford. Catherine graduated from Dracut HS and in 1943 from Lowell State Teachers College. She served as President of her college class from 1940 onward, organizing class reunions through their 65th in 2008. ULowell recognized her alumni participation with the 1993 Distinguished Alumni Graduate Award.

She was a life-long learner and is best remembered for her varied roles in sharing local history. She not only unearthed historical facts, but discerned the social context and personalities she researched, often with a subtle sense of humor. Beginning in the 1970s, she planned exhibitions for Lowell Museum relating to mill city life: china typical of 1880s in Lowell, silver by Lowell silversmiths, ladies underwear, portraits of historic Lowell people and personalities. In the 1980s for the Whistler House, she researched early Lowell artists, particularly the Shutes and Thomas Cantwell Healy; and for artist Samuel P. Howes, two years of her work culminated in an exhibition and catalog. She planned the Whistler House 100th Anniversary and hung every painting Whistler House owned. She oversaw the beginning of their conservation program. In the early 2000s, she presented "Ladies of Lowell" exhibition and lecture series. Together with her husband John, she presented lectures on a variety of topics to Lowell, Dracut and Chelmsford historical societies.

Catherine is well known for her association with Lowell Cemetery. She originated tours of the cemetery in 1981, and became the cemetery's first female Trustee in 1991. Her lasting legacy is the definitive book she researched and wrote Mourning Glory: The Story of Lowell Cemetery (1992). Her husband, John took most of the photos for the book, and daughter, Elizabeth helped her revise a 2nd edition in 2002.

Catherine and John together received a Lowell Community Service Award in 2007, and were commended as "local treasures" whose contributions in the areas of local history, education, art and human services have enriched our quality of life."
Earlier, she actively participated in a number of cultural and charitable organizations, serving on the boards of directors for Lowell Mental Health Assn., Florence Crittenton League, International Institute, Whistler House Museum of Art, and Lowell Historical Society. In the 1990s she participated in the Association for Gravestone Studies. She was a life-long member of St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Lowell and active summers at St. Peter's by the Sea in Ogunquit, Maine.

She was always a gracious and welcoming hostess to family and friends, and entertained them with amusing stories.

She is survived by husband, John A. Goodwin; children, Elizabeth A. Long (Robert) of Lisle, IL, William B. Goodwin (Meredith) of Whitehouse Station, NJ, Jean C. Demetracopoulos (John) of S. Berwick, Maine; and seven adult grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. She was preceded in death by daughter, Catherine Ruth Goodwin.

She is also survived by sisters, Rowena Scott (Dover, DE), and Irene Vallee (Fort Collins, CO).

     The following obituary appeared in the Dover (New Hampshire) www.seacoastonline.com for John Alden Goodwin:
     DOVER, N.H. — John A. Goodwin, 95, a longtime resident of Lowell and Chelmsford, Mass., and who spent summers in Ogunquit, Maine, died Thursday, June 14, 2012 in Dover, N.H.

He was born in Lowell, Mass. to William B. Goodwin and Elizabeth Abbott Goodwin. John married his "Cassie" in 1943. He was a World War II veteran. After receiving his degrees in textile engineering at Lowell Textile Institute (now UMass-Lowell), he taught there until his retirement as professor in 1980.

He was a lifelong member of St. Anne's Episcopal Church and, since 1960, was a summer member at St. Peter's by-the-Sea near his Ogunquit cottage — serving both churches in many capacities, including many years as treasurer. Until his later years, he was an active Mason (32nd degree, Kilwinning Lodge Past Master, Joseph Warren Medal). A Boy Scout "for life," he served the Lowell Council of Boy Scouts for 60-plus years (Silver Beaver Award, Old Scouts).

John had many interests — history, pipe organs and music, textiles, railroads, photography — and he participated in many related activities. He served on boards, committees, and as president of many Lowell organizations including Lowell Art Association, Lowell Historical Society, Lowell Museum, and Boston & Maine RR Historical Society.

The Ancestors of John Alden Goodwin


Introduction



The information in this genealogy was initially transcribed from two fan charts prepared by William Bradford Goodwin which are currently in the possession of his son, John A. Goodwin. A subsequent attempt was made to locate other sources of information to confirm or modify, and expand on the information from the fan charts. For the most part, the fan charts provided only the year of birth, marriage & death events, and without many locations of these events. The additional sources consulted provided, in many cases, complete dates and locations. In addition, some ancestral lines were extended, and other family members added based on these sources. The Endnotes section of this report provides detailed citations for every source that was consulted.

This genealogy report uses a family numbering system similar to that used by the New England Historic Genealogical Society Register. It is organized like a pedigree chart, such that each generation is presented before the next older generation is shown.

Each person is numbered as follows: Each person who is a direct ancestor is shown after the Arabic number he or she would be assigned on a pedigree chart -- the ahnentafel number. See John Edson in the example below. Each child in a family is given a small roman numeral. If the child is a direct ancestor, he or she is also given an ahnentafel number, and has a more detailed discussion elsewhere in the report, identified by that number. For example, Mary Bass Edson, below, has ahnentafel number 15; Samuel is not a direct ancestor and does not have an ahnentafel number. Thus more discussion of Mary Bass Edson can be found elsewhere in the report at the number 15.


     30. JOHN5 EDSON (Benjamin, #60)7 was born on 25 Mar 1786 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.111 He married Mary Bass (see #31), daughter of Jonathon Bass and Elizabeth Marston Channel, on 24 Nov 1825 in Quincy, Massachusetts.112 He died on 23 Oct 1865 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, at age 79.113
      Children of John5 Edson and Mary Bass (see #31) both born in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, were as follows:
          15.     i.     MARY BASS4.
                ii.      SAMUEL114 was born on 28 Mar 1835.115

The superscript italic number immediately following a person's given name (e.g., John5 ) indicates his generation from person number 1. (John Alden Goodwin).

Following the person's name is his or her father's first name and his ahnentafel number, enclosed in parentheses. (John Edson's father is Benjamin and is person number 60.)

Superscripts following other information are references to the footnotes at the end of the report that provide citations to the sources of the information.

This volume, of necessity, must be considered a work in progress, as not all of the information contained herein has been fully researched. In addition, many of the families are not fully listed, and show only the child who is John Alden Goodwin's direct ancestor. If the reader would like to offer corrections or additions to any of the information, the complier would be pleased to receive them. He lived at Hildreth Street, Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, fr 1931 - 1932.9 He lived at Canton Street, Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, fr 1932 - 1933.9 He was graduated from Lowell Textile Institute, at Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.10 John was a professor at the Lowell Technological (formerly Textile) Institute. He is descendant of the Mayflower families of John Alden and William Bradford.11
