W. H. C. Goode

William Henry Collier Goode was the son of Dr. W. H. J. Goode and Margaret McKay. His family ancestors were among the first settlers of Jamestown, Virginia. In September, 1875, W.H.C. Goode married Fanny Frazier, the daughter of Sidney attorney J. F. Frazier, and then moved to Sidney the following year. His wife died in January, 1898, and he then married Ida Haslup in June, 1899.

Ida [Haslup] Goode

She was the daughter of local industrialist G. G. Haslup for whom she worked as a young woman, performing bookkeeping and secretarial duties at his shop. These skills would serve her well as she would later manage the American Steel Scraper Company, after W.H.C.’s death. Miss Haslup was an accomplished woman. She became the first female principal of a high school in Ohio, serving in that capacity at Sidney High School in the late 1880s. Mr. Goode was involved in the road scraper business all his life. After working for the firm of Slusser and McGill for four years, he purchased the business from them and formed the American Steel Scraper Company. A graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University, he served on its Board of Trustees for a number of years, and along with his wife, Ida, was a life-long member of the Methodist Church. Further information concerning Mr. Goode and his company can be found in two publications at the Amos Memorial Public Library: Sutton's "History of Shelby County" (page 361) and Hitchcock's "History of Shelby County" (page 197). Mr. Goode and his family (seven children, two wives) are buried in the northern part of Section 3 at Graceland Cemetery in Sidney.
