I don't have a descendant tree for Nathan Goodrich, but I see that Shelby Co. researchers have been working it out. Best wishes -- Geoffrey Hayden

Nathan Goodrich, c. 18 Aug 1765 at Amenia, Dutchess Co., NY to Abner Goodrich and Ruth.  (ref: NY Gen. & Bio. Record, v. 35, p.111 says wife Ruth living at New Concord, which is near Hartford, CT.)

Rev. War pension file says b. Alstead, VT (probably an error for NH: His mother, Ruth Delano Goodrich, had an uncle Barnabus Delano who died in Alstead, NH there and may have been living there at the time. Ruth's father died in Walpole, NH, not far from Alstead.)

Burial:  Old City Cem., Shelbyville, IN (1765-1836, with wife "Susan Whetzel (1767-1828)(?)"-- see photo of stone from Shelby Co., IN Genweb site.

Died:  October 08, 1836 (I haven't verified the date).
