John spent a few more months going from river to river searching for better digging." per "My Great Grandfather was a "59er" by Ellen Campbell, copied from The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington.
    Note: This story does not mention William coming to California at this time. Was he there at all?? Maybe just for a short time with John in 1859?? Maybe William did not go. He is in the April 1861 Census in Brighton Twp.

  • Marriage*: 1963; per Memorial.; Principal=Barbara Calderwood5
  • Death*: 10 May 1983; Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington, Ontario; "Bill Goodfellow; Former MPP Dies; William Goodfellow, 81, former provincial cabinet minister and Northumberland MPP, died May 10, 1983 in Burlington. He had been visiting with his family in Northumberland county on the preceding weekend, and seemed in good health. Mr. Goodfellow was MPP for twenty years from 1943 to 1963, and served as cabinet minister in several ministries including public welfare, municipal affairs, agriculture and highways. "He was a great Canadian," said Howard Sheppard, present Northumberland MPP, who grew up near Mr. Goodfellow in Brighton township. Dr. Fred Robertson, former Northumberland Liberal MP, said, "He was an easy man to work with, and I held him in great admiration." Born in Brighton Township, August 18, 1901, Mr. Goodfellow's parents were Chas. J. Goodfellow and Martha Valleau. He attended Warkworth High School and Ontario Agricultural College at Quelph, then farmed in Brighton Township. When he was only 21 years old, he was first elected a councillor in the township, moving up to deputy-reeve and then reeve. He also served as clerk-treasurer for a time. At Queen's Park he served under four premiers: George Drew, Tom Kennedy, Leslie Frost and John Robarts. Mr. Goodfellow had a family of four daughters, Joy, Shirley, Phyllis and Ada, and one son, Philp. He was married twice; to the former Dora Philp of Cramahe and to the former Barbara Calderwood of Barrie. He was a member of the United Church and a past master of Percy Lodge, A.F. & A.M." from a newspaper clipping passed to me by Shirley (Taylor) Buchanan, wife of Rev. Charles Buchanan, Nov 2012.
    "Goodfellow, William Arthur; (Cabinet Minister of the Province of Ontario, 1946-1963). At the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, Burlington, Ontario on Tuesday, May 10, 1983, aged 81 years. Formerly married to Dora Philp. Beloved husband of Barbara Calderwood. Loving father of Joy (deceased), Shirley (Mrs. James Bird, Brighton), Phyllis (Mrs. J. Moriarty, Peterborough), Ada (Mrs. W. Lelliott, Cobourg), C. Philp of Pembroke. Dear step-father of Barbara (Mrs. J. D. Keppy, Burlington). In his belief that memories should be of the living, and not of the dead, there will be no service." from a newspaper clipping passed to me by Shirley (Taylor) Buchanan, Nov 2012, part of papers of my father, Rev. Charles Buchanan.
    "Dad died in either a Hamilton or Burlington hospital, not in Florida. When it was time for he & Barb to drive back to Ontario from Florida in the spring of 1983, he admitted to a general weakness as a result of several ‘spells’ (probably mini heart attacks) during the winter. As a result, my sister Ada flew to Florida, got them back to Toronto by air, and started driving their car back to Ontario (I met her in Atlanta and we had a ball driving back together). The weekend before he died, he requested his 4 living children to gather at Shirley & Jim’s where we spent a great time listening to him reminisce (why didn’t we tape it!?!). And then he was gone - without any suffering!" (per email from Phil Goodfellow, Nov 15 2011)
    Death Notice in Tweedsmuir Histories: "News of the recent death of William A. Goodfellow, MLA for Northumberland from 1943 to 1963 will recall to those who lived through the period he was serving this area that he was one of those outstanding public servants the area has been fortunate to have represent its ridings. .... He retired from politics and enjoyed a long retirement, first operating a motel in Florida and then simply taking life easier." Day of death from Shirley Bird
    Note: "By the way, the Tweedsmuir Histories are mistaken when they claim that Dad operated a motel in Florida - he wintered in Florida in 2 different facilities which kind of resembled motels for the 20 years of his retirement, but didn’t own or manage them (he would have had a great hoot over that rumour!)." per email from Phil Goodfellow, Nov 15 2011.3,6

It was a wonderful story and could have happened since Lloyd was on his way to Chicago Feb 23 and could have been at Guelph when Bill took sick.8

  • Note: 1940; Goodfellow Farm, Brighton Twp., Mount Olivet, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Phill Goodfellow told me after Dad died (June 16 2012) that Charles had come to the Goodfellow farm in 1940 at age 15 because his father believed that at age 15 there had been enough schooling and a young man should start working. At that time, that was the age you could leave school. This means that Charles had been at the Goodfellow farm for two years when his uncle Bill was elected as an MPP. Phil explains that both Bill Goodfellow and Charles Buchanan regretted later in life their limited education. Charles felt it when he started to deal with other ministers who had university educations and Bill experienced it during his time in Cabinet. In each case, common sense and "people skills" were much better assets than a diploma. It also adds extra meaning to the time Bill Goodfellow saw Rev. Charles Buchanan after he was ordained and told him how proud he was that there was a minister in the family. Dad told me that story many times, with an extra edge to his voice. (Dan Buchanan)13

  • Residence: circa 1960; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Per Charles Buchanan: Dave lived for many years with his mother in the house west of Hwy 30 near the Mount Olivet road. After his mother died Dave could be seen routinely heading to Brighton to spend time at the pool hall. He seemed to always have the same clothes on and you could expect to see the pipe in his mouth. Gordon McGee farmed the land around the house and has suggested that Dave did very little in the way of housekeeping.
  • Residence: 21 February 1962; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Fire destroyed the home of Mr. David Goodfellow on Highway 30 north of Codrington early the morning of February 21 ...

He cleaned up, got some new clothes, started smoking outside and seemed to enjoy these completely different living conditions for the last years of his life.
    Gordon McGee was the first on the scene when the house burned and was reported to have said that he found Dave sitting on a suitcase in front of the burning house - calmly smoking his pipe. Dave apparently yelled to Gordon "Look at her burn!"
  • Note*: 2 November 1967; Antrimlea Farms, Brighton Twp., Mount Olivet, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "David N.

(Nov 20 1967). Still a man of vigor, he takes pleasure six days a week in walking two miles to ride the bus to Brighton where he spends the afternoon shooting pool. "I'm not a pool shark; I play for fun. Mr. Goodfellow, son of the late John Goodfellow and Louisa Dingwall was born on a neighboring farm. He recalled stories that his father had told of his work in the California gold rush. A silver watch used as time keeper there has been in David's possession for many years and has been passed on to his nephew. The proceeds of the California work were used to purchase a farm which was later left to David's brother now Mr. Grant Goodfellow, Argyle St., Peterborough.
    His ancestors came from Antrim County, Ireland in 1841. The farm on which he has lived for the past six years since his own burned, bears a similar Irish name. (Tweedsmuir Histories, Reel 1, I-231)6

Here the soldiers removed their socks and boots and washed their feet in the watering trough. Tents were set up and the officeers at chicken, the soldiers ate ?? . Ames' kitchen table was used for the food. Codrington ladies supplied cakes and ?? for their desert. Fresh horses were supplied by Codrington men to drive the mess waggon on to Campbellford. As a small school boy, John Goodfellow remembers following behind with teacher Maggie Jordan and the other students, as they marched on to the train and the students returned to Mount Olivet." (from "The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington", copied from microfilm Reel #3, Metro Toronto Reference Library, Nov 2007)
    Note: These lines are hand written in spaces around pictures and newspaper articles about WWI. There is no signature but I assume they were written by Margaret (Atkinson) Goodfellow, who was much involved in working on "The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington", and was the wife of the John Goodfellow mentioned in the story.
    ... and also ...
    "When a battalion was being transferred from Brighton to Campbellford they stopped in the field behind the present Carmen Ruttan residence for supper, which was provided by the Institute ladies. Lloyd Ames recalls that his father's watering trough was a blessing to the horses that pulled the mess wagons, also to the many tired feet. At this point there was an exchange of horses for the balance of the trip. John Goodfellow remembers, as a little boy, following the marchers as far as the 8th concession, when the teacher led her pupils back to Mount Olivet School.."

At this point there was an exchange of horses for the balance of the trip. John Goodfellow remembers, as a little boy, following the marchers as far as the 8th concession, when the teacher led her pupils back to Mount Olivet School.."

    Note: These lines are hand written in spaces around pictures and newspaper articles about WWI.

  • Note: circa 1920; Ames Home, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; In the early 1920s Linnie (King) Ames was increasingly agitated by the memorial of William Henry King standing up at the south east corner of the Ames farm house. It had been there since it was erected by George King in the 1860s and was a constant reminder of the shame that the notorious murderer had imposed on his family. Linnie King was a niece of Dr. King, being the daughter of David Nelson King, a younger brother of William Herny King, who was the oldest of the King children. At some point, the presence of the stone became unbearable for Linnie so she asked her two younger sons, Lloyd and Kenneth, to get rid of it. The boys did the expedient thing. They pulled the stone out of the ground, dug a shallow trench, lay the stone down in it and covered it with sod. Out of sight, out of mind, might be the intent of this excersize. In any case, that is how the memorial of William Henry King ended up in the ground at the south east corner of the Buchanan house in the mid-1950s when septic work motivated Lloyd Ames to move it. In the process, Charles Buchanan took two pictures of it and they reburied the stone in the garden just a few feet away, where it was pulled up by the plough about a decade later. (Dan Buchanan)6

    Note: Lloyd Ames often told the story of how he bundled Bill Goodfellow in blankets and took him from the boarding house in Guelph on the train to Toronto and then, meeting his father and brother who brought sleighs to Brighton, slogged through a snow storm to get the unconscious Bill home where he survived after several difficult months to later become a respected member of parliament.
