Mr. Goddard was married June 14, 1850 to Eliza Jones. To this union, nine children were born, seven on whom are living and attended the funeral and were present during his last sickness and death. His youngest brother, Timothy Goddard of Kansas City, Mo. was present during the last of his sickness. Mr. Goddard came to Missouri in 1856 and settled at White Oak Springs south of Highlandville and during the civil war was in that part of the country made dangerous by such guerrillas as Alf Bolin and gang, and with wagon and team rendered important service to the government in the enrolled militia. He was a resident of the present years. In 1866 he bought the home where he died and lived there continuously for 48 years. Uncle John as he was affectionately called, had as few of the frailties of human nature as fall to the lot of humanity and lived to a ripe old age and left scores of friends and no enemies and all his old neighbors will keep his memory green for many years. It seems to be a premonition that he came to the Republican office a few days before being taken and inquired of the date of the expiration of his paper and when given the date paid up to March 6, remarking that he had taken the paper since its foundation but would need it no longer, so the paper was discontinued the day he was taken sick.

He had been in ill health for some time but, like the most of us, would keep going even though he did not feel like it. He was helping his nephew at the morning work and suffered a cerebral hemorrhage while in the barn loft feeding the cattle. His old dog was the first to know that all was not well with his master and gave the warning to his nephew. He was a good neighbor, everyone had love and respect for him, even the children of the neighborhood thought he was their own “Uncle Joe”. A wise man who loved by everyone, A friend to one and all, A neighbor always ready to help, Has met the Master’s call. He will be sadly missed by his loved ones. For they hated to see him go. And all, even the little children, Will miss their Uncle Joe.”

[Note: Daughter of  James M. & Martha (Jones) Larkins; married  17 Sep 1874 CCM Samuel D. Goddard 1 Jul 1851 - 6 Oct 1928]

Mary E. Larkin was born on June 22, 1858. She was orphaned at the age of five years when she went to make her home with Mr. and Mrs. Jim Doran. At the age of sixteen, she was united in marriage to Sam D. Goddard. To this union five sons were born, four of whom survive, the other dying in infancy. In early womanhood, she united with the Richwood Methodist church and remained faithful in that belief to the end. For over twenty years, she was in poor health, the last seven of which were spent as an invalid. Yet she spent these years patiently and bore her suffering with christian fortitude. She lived her entire life in Christian county. The final call came while she was at the home of a son in Springfield on Wednesday, August 17th. The funeral services were held on Thursday at the Payne cemetery. That  Mrs. Goddard was patient sufferer and awaited her final call with a Christian willingness is shown by the fact that although an invalid for the last seven years, she did not while away her time but spent it in weaving her needle into articles of comfort which her relatives will have and possess for years to remind them of the useful life she lived. She was a kind and friendly neighbor, a devoted and caring mother and to others than her own kin, she willingly shared the blessings which were in her power to bestow. Seldom, if ever, did those upon the caring of her fell, hear her complain. Her every thought was of others and such is that true greatness by which we are to be measured by the Great Judge. The entire community mourns for her, not so much that they would call her back to her bed of affliction, but because they remember her days of usefulness and the hours when her hands and heart earned her reward and greatness of which is written in the Good Book.

AND

Goddard, Samuel D. 1 Jul 1851 - 6 Oct 1928 CCR 25 Oct 1925

Samuel D. Goddard was born on July 1st, 1851 in Morgan county, Tennessee, the eldest son of John H. Goddard and Eliza Jones. He came to Missouri with his parents in the year 1856 and located at White Oak Springs, near Highlandville. They lived there little over a year when they moved within one mile of Cassidy where he grew to manhood and was married to Mary E. Larkins in 1874. With his bride, Mr. Goddard moved to a farm not far from that of his parents. To this union five children were born, one dying in infancy. After rearing their family. Mr. and Mrs. Goddard moved to Ozark in the year 1918 and lived there until the death of the wife more than a year ago. After her death, Mr. Goddard broke up housekeeping and moved to Springfield to live with his son. He also spent some of the time following his wife’s death and preceding his untimely departure with his sons in Canada. It seems the hand of fate played an unfair part in dealing with him and death came as the result of an unfortunate accident in Springfield on Sunday afternoon, October 6th. The funeral services were held on Sunday, October 13th, with Rev. B. Frank West of Springfield officiating, with burial in the Payne cemetery. The deceased was 79 years of age at the time of his death and is survived by the following: four sons, James H, of Springfield; C. C., Floyd C. and Olin E. of Olds, Canada; three sisters, Mrs. Monroe Keltner of Nixa; Mrs. W. K. Gibson of Cassidy and Mrs. Robert E. Wisner of Nixa; two brothers, David of Richards, Mo. And J. M. of Nixa, and Mrs. John S. Taylor of this city who is almost next of kin. Samuel D. Goddard was a home man. The son that gave us the above facts regarding his father’s life stated that he remained at home until 29 years of age and he doesn’t remember a time when his father was away from home unless to care for some sick friend. He was a faithful companion to his afflicted wife until death took her away and no friend can ever say her was not true to his family trust. Samuel D. Goddard was a quiet, self-possessed man and sound in his relationship to his family and neighbor. He confessed his faith many years before his death and had identified himself with the Methodist church. Although he may not have been as active in community affairs as some, yet he filled his place well and he will be greatly missed from this community which had learned to known him and to love him
