Frederick Goodwin and his wife and six children

Bath Journal


Frederick Goodwin and his wife and six children were on board. They had been living in Melksham for some years. Goodwin was a machine hand at the foundry, and about 40 years of age. The eldest of the children, a girl, was 16 or 17 years of age, and the youngest was a baby of a few months. The Goodwins have relatives in the States, some of whom had recently been on a visit to Melksham, and returned not long ago. Presumably they induced Goodwin to leave the old country; he was going to a situation near the Falls, already found for him, and his relatives had provided a house and furniture for the family. The supplementary list of survivors issued yesterday contained no Goodwins, so that the whole family would seem to have perished.
