      Canadian Goudies

      One of the first Goudies to remove to Canada was Hugh, a farmer, who was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1792. He was a direct descendant of the ancient family that for four hundred years was settled at Craigie Mill, Parish of Galston. In 1815 he married Jane Aird, came to Canada in 1828, and settled near the village of Guelph, one year after the first tree had been cut in that city. There he resided until about 1850 when he went to live with his son David near Breslau in Waterloo County. He died in 1874, aged 82 years. His wife died in 1855. They had a family of seven children, two of whom were boys, David and John. The daughters were Margaret (Mrs. Wm. McConnell), Martha (Mrs. James Dickson), Jane (Mrs. Frank Diggins), and Agnes (Mrs. Thomas Tucker).

      David (II), eldest son of Hugh and Jane Aird Goudie, was born in 1816. He was twice married, first to Sarah Fathers, who died in 1842, leaving one daughter, Emily (Mrs. Sam. Warner). His second wife was Nancy Warner. They first lived near Hespeler, then near Breslau. They had a family of ten children, viz., Benjamin, who died aged two years; John (Margaret Cober), David, (see below); Rev. Henry, who married Sarah Wildfong and lived at Didsbury, Alta.; Isaac (see below); Abraham (Lydia Snyder); Tobias; James (Caroline Snyder); Jacob (Rebecca Hambling), and Rev. Samuel (Miss E. J. Smith).

      David (III), 1848-1918, third son of David and Jane Aird Goudie, was twice married, first to Miss Mary Holm, who bore him nine children, and later to Mrs. Martha Reesor. The children of David are as follows: Mary (Mrs. Oliver Pannabecker,, who had a daughter Matilda (Rev. J. N. Hitching), a missionary in Africa; William and Alfred, both of whom died young; Minnie (Rev. W. O. Mendell), now residing at Elora, Ont.; George (Miss Adams); Ida (Chas. Hutchins); Orlando (Miss Evelyn); Stanley Irvin (Miss Brittain).

      Isaac Goudie (IV), fifth son of David and Nancy Warner Goudie was born in 1853. He married Susannah Witmer. They resided in Hespeler where he engaged in the mercantile business until 1904 when he removed to Kitchener where he operated a grocery business until 1913 when he joined the firm of Wese- loh-Goudie Limited, now known as Goudies Limited. He is at present residing in Kitchener, having reached the age of 85. In 1883 he married Susannah Witmer, daughter of Joseph and Catharine Sherk Witmer. To them were born five children: Arthur (see below); Robert J. (see below); Alice L.; Janet, who married Rev. James Semple, and Estelle..

      Arthur Russell Goudie (IV), eldest son of Isaac and Susannah Witmer Goudie, was born near Preston in 1884. At present he is one of Kitchener's leading business men. By dint of hard work, perseverance and an unflinching devotion to high ideals he rose from factory employee in the firm of R. Forbes Company, Woollen Mills at Hespeler, to the position of President and Managing Director of Goudies Limited. During his business career he has found time to serve local and municipal interests with credit to himself and the general satisfaction of his associates. In 1909 he married Alice M. Weseloh which union was blessed with two children, Hope Millicent and Stuart Russel.

      Robert James Goudie (IV) (1885-1927), second son of Isaac and Nancy Warner Goudie, was at the time of his death Secretary and Assistant-Manager of Goudies Limited. He served in France with the First Battalion, C.E.F., during the Great War and was in the army of occupation at Cologne. He was married to Julia Irene Stockfish in 1921 and left one daughter, Ruth Evelyn.
