Isaac Goodkind, born in Stein, Germany, May 12, 1799, died, U.S., November 5, 1884 -- apparently the year that this photo was taken. Isaac Goodkind came to the U.S. in 1832. According to a family history compiled in 1975 by my father, Bernard Goodkind, and his sister, Marion Goodkind Davis, Isaac and his wife, Sophia, had eight children. The third of these, the first Bernard Goodkind, was also born in Stein, Germany and came to this country "as an infant in arms." The New York City Directory for 1850 or 1851 listed Isaac Goodkind's occupation as "peddler."
