Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Gooding, Mrs. Charlotte S., widow of the late Hiram M. Gooding, was Charlotte S. Fenton, daughter of Zalmon Fenton, who died in 1882 at the advanced age of eighty five. He was born in the town of Jackson in 1797, son of Benjamin and Anna Wells Fenton, from whom he inherited a vigorous constitution. He also possessed a shrewd business policy, and, although thrown on his own resources, made a financial success. He married in 1823 Pamela Hickok, by whom he had eight children and all lived to witness the celebration of the golden wedding of their parents. He conducted the Fenton House at Cambridge many years and was familiarly known as "Uncle Zal,' and by his cheerful disposition and kind and generous nature his memory will live in the hearts of both young and old. Only one sister of the twelve children of his father's family survived him. Mrs. Gooding was left at the death of her husband with six children: Mary Amelia, Julia Parnell, Hetty Maria, Walter Cyrus, Emily J., and Edna Sidelia. One infant son died in 1871 aged six months.
