Edward Superior Goodner
Today, I'm featuring a very young photo of my great-grandfather, E. S. Goodner. I'm guessing that this photo was taken about 1883 or 1884 in Sulphur Springs, Texas. He was named for his two grandfathers, Edward and Superior. His father died when he was 5 years old and he later became the man of the family, looking after his mother and sisters. I love the clothes and the smile. Based on the recollections of everyone who knew him, he remained a snappy dresser and a man of mirth.
