Note

"To give a bit of information on my immediate family, my Dad was married twice, first time to Dovie Mae Creed - they had 3 sons, all of whom died (2 at birth - one about 18 months old), she died in childbirth."

Note

Lived in Paris, IL as in 1937. (See obit of Goodman) S22

Note

I asked Ann, his daughter, why there are two grave markers for her father at the Forsythe Cemetery and just where is he buried. This is her response:

"Now, to my father - there is a long story about this, so bear with me. First my father was married to Dovie A. Creed and she passed away after about 6 or so years of marriage. Daddy married my mother, Lucy Barth, Dec. 25, 1923 and he died Aug. 25, 1979. He never really let Dovie die, in his mind, he and mother kept in close contact with her family and they were very nice to my mother. Anyhow, he would run hot and cold about being buried beside her, and at one point they bought a lot by the gate at Forsythe Cemetery. So, at the point when he died, we asked Mother where to bury him and she said beside Dovie. The same day he was buried, she said to me, "I wish I hadn't done that" and I asked what she meant and she said where he was buried. I told her, "Nothing is done that can't be undone" that we could move his body at any time. So she said, "when I die, you can do it then". So, that was what we did - therefore, that is the reason you see his name in two places and he is in fact buried by the gate with Lucy. I asked the monument co. to blank out his date on the old stone, but they didn't." -- Ann Stewart - 2012

Note

"Daddy spent the last year of his life in a convalescent home in Paris, IL." -- Ann Stewart - 2012

Note

"A little bit of history, Mother & Daddy moved to the farm that Goodman & Maggie had owned, east of Oliver, in 1942. After the death of his Mother, they bought the farm in 1945 or 1946. They lived there until 1968 when they sold it and moved to Paris. It has changed hands one more time, and now Jerry Forsythe, son of Ray Forsythe, and Grandson of Norman Forsythe, bought it in 2000 and still owns it." -- Ann Stewart - 2012
