Names of Susan (Messer) Goodwin's children came from Hattie (Goodwin) Pratt, daughter of John W. Goodwin, who mentioned that she believed that Bennett may also be buried beside or near his first wife's grave.  William Goodwin was buried in the same cemetery as Cordelia Arterberry.

A limited number of photos, if available, are included in each child's section.  Due to limited space, I try to include one of each person.
