Biography of Mrs. Seymour Gooding
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Gooding, Mrs. Seymour. - In 1894 Hoosick was called upon to mourn the death of one of her most prominent and influential men, Mr. Seymour Gooding. He was active in political life and identified with every interest of the town. He was well informed upon all legal questions, and a kind and safe counsellor to the many who sought his advice. Farming he followed extensively and was also a speculator in cattle, sheep and wool. This is not his native town as he was born at Hartford, Washington county, but he came here when a child. His wife, who survives him, was Marcia A. Milliman, daughter of Halsey Milliman of Salem, Washington county, whom he married in 1859. He served as postmaster eight years at North Hoosick. His son Elmer was also postmaster four years. The latter resided at home taking charge of the several farms since the death of his father. At the age of fifteen years he entered the Rutland R. R. station and remained fourteen years as agent.
