The Fearless Fifty-Nine, Benjamin Briggs Goodrich

Benjamin Briggs Goodrich was the 37 year old Washington representative. Before moving to Texas in 1834, Goodrich practiced medicine all over the South and served one term in the state legislature of Alabama. He purchased a lot in Washington in 1835 after moving with his brother, John Calvin Goodrich, the previous year. His brother later died defending the Alamo. During the convention, Goodrich interviewed each delegate to get their present age, place of birth and the name of the state from which he immigrated to Texas. He later settled in Grimes County with his wife and 9 children.
