Richard’s second family

[NOTE: The majority of this information comes through the diligent effort of Dorothy Goodhind of Amherst. - AMS]

Following the death of his first wife Charlotte Martin Cook on October 15, 1878, Richard was left with five young daughters. Five months later, to the day, the 36-year-old Richard re-married to 21-year-old MARY LOUISA STICKLES (born in Hillsdale, NY on April 13, 1858) on March 15, 1879 in Dalton, MA.

[One of the interesting things to note, many years after the event itself, is that Mary Stickles married Richard Goodhind just 4 days after her own father, Jacob, died in on March 11, 1879 in neighboring Pittsfield.  Even now, one wonders about the relationship between the two events. - TSG]

[I am told that theirs was a difficult household.  Mary was fairly close in age to the eldest daughter, Rose, and they did not always see eye-to-eye.  Richard did not help matters.  One anecdote passed down from my Aunt Dorothy Goodhind is that he would say at the dinner table, with the children present, "Mary Stickles. Please pass the pickles." This of course delighted the children and upset the new Mrs. Goodhind - TSG]

After Richard's death in 1911, Mary re-married to JOHN R. HISTON (born in Falls Village, Canaan, CT on February 2, 1858) on April 30, 1912 in Pittsfield, MA. They are supposed to have known each other when much younger; John too had been previously married to WEALTHA STICKELS. He died on October 31, 1918 at the age of 60 and is buried in the Histon lot in Union Cemetery in Mellenville, NY. Mary died in Pittsfield on September 20, 1941 at the age of 83 in the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, now called "Berkshire Place." She is buried in Union Cemetery, Mellenville, NY in a lot sold to MRS. LUCINDA STICKLES on March 13, 1888.

[Of her six years married to John Histon, Mary is reported to have remarked, "They were the happiest times of my life." - TSG]

Richard and Mary had two children:

G. BERTHA MAY GOODHIND was born on December 17, 1881 in Huntington, MA and died there on September 18, 1882 of cholera infantum. She was only 9 months old. She is buried beside Richard’s first wife, Charlotte, in Dalton, MA.
[Although Bertha May was born AFTER Murray, I have placed her first here rather than at the end of the next section because Murray's family is so large.  I did not want her birth and death lost amongst the other family. - TSG]
F. MURRAY MALCOLM GOODHIND was born May 22, 1880, supposedly in Dalton, MA. However, there is no record of his birth there. He married HENRIETTA MAY HAWVER (born July 9, 1891 in South Lee, daughter of GILBERT HAWVER, JR. and the widow MARY ANNIS MURPHY SMITH) on September 24, 1907 in State Line, MA.
[They supposedly could not be married in Massachusetts, as she was underage; however, I have since found their Massachusetts marriage certificate. Murray was 27 years old and Henrietta was 16. She did have the permission of her father, Gilbert Hawver, for the marriage.  The building in which they were married was renowned locally, as one half of it sat in New York state and the other half in Massachusetts.   They had evidently met in the papermill where Murray worked as foreman of the rag room and his father was Superintendent. - TSG]

[During the births of their many children, I am told that someone asked about other Goodhinds in Western Massachusetts.  The answer he received was that Murray and Henrietta were "over in Lee, working on a baseball team." - TSG]
Murray worked beside his father in a papermill in his early life. Thereafter, he tried his hand at farming when his mother Mary bought a farm for the family in Canaan, NY in the mid-1920s. But when the economy collapsed in the early 1930s, the family sold the farm. They moved to Malden Bridge, NY and then Hinsdale, MA. Eventually, they moved the Amherst, MA about 1934. Murray died in Amherst on March 19, 1956; he was 75. Henrietta died there on March 6, 1981 at the age of 89. They are buried in South Amherst.

Murray and Henrietta had thirteen (13) children:
1. LUELLA MARY GOODHIND was born in South Lee on February 24, 1910 and married JAMES FRANCIS COYNE SR. (born May 4, 1908 in Chatham, NY) on February 9, 1927 in the First Baptist Church, East Chatham, NY. They spent much of their married life in Leverett, MA. Jim was reknowned locally as a fiddler.
