GOUDY, Pearson 1
Pearson Goudy, age 22, born in Iowa, appears on the 1850 US Census, living in Cherry Creek, Illinois in the household of Michael Shoemaker and his wife. Pearson is presumed to be the son of Michael's daughter, Mary, by her first husband, Samuel Goudy, but this is unconfirmed.
1850 US Census (Cherry Grove, Carroll County, Illinois). Repository: Ancestry. Surety: 3. Lists Michael Shoemaker (age 74, b. PA) and wife Elizabeth (age 69, b. NY) living four houses away from their son, William, in Cherry Grove, Carroll County, Illinois. Also in the household are Michael's grandsons [I believe], Pearson Goudy [probably a son of Michael's daughter, Mary Goudy, by her first husband, Samuel Goudy] (age 22, b. IA); and a William W. Allen (age 13, b. WI) [probably a son of Mary by her second husband, William Wallace Allen]. Michael and Elizabeth's places of birth do not match with our records.
