      Benny was the father of Ernest Whitmore Goodrich which explains how Ernest had the picture of Junious on horseback. Ernest grew up with Junius living on the farm and being a part of his very early life. (The farm is now the home of Wayne and Kim Britt Steele.)

      The address of the farm now owned by Wayne and Kim Steele is 1888 Rocky Hock Road, Wakefield, VA 23888. As you leave Albert Goodrich's grave, it may be 1.5 miles on the right as you are heading toward Rocky Hock Church on Rocky Hock Road. They have done a nice job of remodeling the old farm house. If you look over on your right, you can see the 2 story white frame house.
