Home Town, USA
Irvin and Jane Good
April 13, 1941
Location matters. First and foremost, starting a new family means
being close enough together to say, "Hello!" For Irvin Good
and Jane Huguenin, born in 1908 and 1914, that journey together through
the Peabody countryside began in 1935 and ended only with Irvin's
death in 1971.
In 1935 Irvin was share cropping the family farm of his parents, I. B. and
Lizzie Gaiser Good, about six miles northwest of Peabody,
and Jane was a telephone operator living in Peabody
with her parents, Oscar and Pearl Lauck Huguenin.
When they were married in 1941, Jane joined Irvin on the farm to
make that their family home and raise their four children.
Irvin, Jane and their parents, I. B. and Lizzie Good and Oscar and Pearl Huguenin,
all now rest in Peabody's
Prairie Lawn Cemetery, as do their grandparents Sarah Gaiser,
Eugenie Huguenin, Edwin D. and Emma Lauck, and other
relatives from the Good, Gaiser, Huguenin, and Lauck families.
Irvin's grandparents, Joel and Susanna Good, rest in the
Catlin Community Cemetery only a few miles away.
