I am looking for information on my GR-GR-GR grandfather Medoas Goodman. He moved to Altona, NY in 1864, and lived a few houses down from the ~Holy Angels Catholic~ church i think. I visited Altona and found a picture stating this but his name was mis-spelled Meduas. He is buried In the cemetary of this church I think.
I am trying to find out where he was from and what his Father and Mother's names were.
I have been researching the above person, (my maternal grandfather). Through the Family "grapevine" and since I was old enough to understand that my grandfather was killed, shot down over an argument about the WW-1. I was told that this occured in Tacoma, WA., and through many library records, coroner files, obituraires, in Tacoma, this has been proven false.
So, if there is anyone in Astoria, OR., that could do a library check for me, it would be most appreciated, so I can move on to the next "wall". Thank you so much.
