Goodale, Henry D., one of Watertown's foremost and influential citizens, was born in that city in 1852, a son of Dr. Charles and Mary (Sewall) Goodale. His grandfather, Dr. Reuben Goodale, came from Oneida county at an early day and was one of the first physicians of the city of Watertown. His father was a graduate from the hospitals of Paris, and was engaged in the practice of his profession until his death in 1876. After Henry D. finished his schooling he entered the office of the National Bank and Loan Company of Watertown, continuing with that institution, being advanced from office boy to. the responsible position of teller and cashier, having been in their employ from 1869 to 1885, when he in company with Mr. Charles M. Otis established himself in the insurance business, which firm exists to-day as it was then organized. Mr. Goodale is largely engaged in the loaning of money, having been in the business many years with great success, and without the loss of one dollar to his customers.
