Goodwin, Sands H., president and manager of the Westcott Chuck Co., was born in Oneida March 18, 1845, a son of Stephen H. and Abbie J. (Higinbotham) Goodwin. His father came here from Vernon in 1843, and was an honored resident of Oneida until his death in 1881. He was associated with many of the pioneer business men of the village in various enterprises which helped to build up the town. Sands H. Goodwin was educated in the public schools of Oneida, and in the Hudson River Institute at Claverack, N. Y. He early entered his father's dry goods store, and in 1866 was taken into partnership, the firm name becoming S. H. Goodwin & Sons.

In 1887 Mr. Goodwin became manager of the Westcott Chuck Company, and five years later was made president and manager. He married in 1868, Anna S. Backus, daughter of M. M. Backus of New York city. Of this union is one daughter, Mrs. C. R. Baker of Oneida.
