    Biography
    • Born: April 5th, 1843 in Leicester, England;; Died: July 22nd, 1911 in Ogden, Utah. PIONEER: Arrived in Utah: September 15th, 1852; MARRIAGE: Married:  M#1 Emma Tribe, April 18th, 1865  M#2 Ellen Lundberg, April 7th, 1882.
        He was the third son of George Goddard and Elizabeth Harrison, out of a family of thirteen children.  His parents were converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints by Elders Jacob Gates and Claudius Spencer. The family set sail for America with seven children, including Joseph, on October 11th, 1851.  After three weeks at sea, his mother gave birth to a son, which lived only about one half an hour and was buried at sea.  They buried four more children along the trail, arriving in Salt lake City with three children on the 15th day of September 1852.  Joseph was then just 9 years old.
        On April 27th, 1862, Brigham Young received an Authorization from President Abraham Lincoln for a Company of Calvary to serve 90 days protecting the Mail and Telegraph lines along the Continental route during the Civil War.  Joseph volunteered for this service and became a member of the Lot Smith Company. Many years later he was given a Bronze Medal by the State of Utah for fighting in the Indian Wars.  His name is now recorded on a Bronze Placque on the Monument  erected by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers near the State Capital at Salt Lake City in memory of Captain Lot Smith and his Company.
        Joseph assisted in his father's confectionery store for awhile, then, while still at the age of nineteen, he went on a mission to England.  When he returned home from his mission, he was married to Emma Tribe by Bishop Woolley at home on the 18th of April 1865, and afterwards in the Endowment House by President Heber C. Kimball.  They went to live in the 12th Ward on 2nd South in Salt Lake City, in a house his father gave to him.  Joseph taught Telegraphy for some time to a class of young men.  Shortly afterwards he was called to go to Bear Lake to help settle that community, later on moving to Logan, Utah, where he served as the first Telegraph operator in Cache County. He was very active in Church work throughout his entire life.  He was a natural born Musician and served as Organist, Choir Leader and teacher for a number of years.  In later years he filled another mission to England.  While serving as Organist in Logan he married Ellen Lundberg, his second wife, on March 30th, 1882, she was a beautiful young girl who sang in the choir, they moved from Logan to Forest Dale (Now known as Sugar House) where their youngest son Percival Lundberg Goddard was born.  Then Joseph moved his entire family to Bountiful where he purchased a farm.   Six years later they moved to Ogden, Utah. While in Ogden he was engaged in the Insurance and mining business.
        He was the father of thirteen  children from two wives: Emma Tribe, his first wife, bore him ten children, three of which died young.  His second wife, Ellen Lundberg, my mother, bore him a daughter and two sons.
        He died being 68 years old in Ogden, Utah, July 22nd, 1911, after a lingering illness.
    Biography
    •                                        MEMORIES OF MY FATHER
        On September 30th, 1961 I stood with a group of Daughter of Utah Pioneers, who were honoring Captain Lot Smith, the Indian Fighter, by unveiling a Monument to his memory on Capital Hill in Salt Lake City.  I casually read the names engraved on the Monument's Bronze Placque and was suddenly startled when I read the name JOSEPH GODDARD (My Father) listed thereon.  This seemed impossible, as my father was born April 5th, 1843 ... and had he been alive at the unveiling date, he would have been over 118 years old.  I thought how could it be possible for a son to still survive him and still be young and active?  At the beginning of the unveiling ceremony program, the Chairman inquired of the audience whether there were any descendants of the men listed present and I raised my hand   on being asked if I was a Great grandson, I stated that Joseph Goddard, the name on the Placque, was MY FATHER, . . . an electric thrill seemed to go through the crowd ... it seemed unbelievable.  I could hardly believe it myself until later after I did some research on the subject, I learned that my Father was only 19 years old when he became a member of the Lot Smith Company ... he married my mother rather late in life, she was still in her teens and I was her youngest son.  If my was alive now, he would be over 122 years old.
        I remember stories told me by my Father of his experiences fighting Indians with Captain Lot Smith Company . . . How one  night when he was doing Sentry duty, he thought he detected an Indian  sulking behind a bush . . . He seized his big Calvary Sword, which was a long one, ran to the bush and plunged the sword into the  sulking figure only to find out that he had stuck a pig. Many storied of hardships and humor were told me by my Father during my early childhood. One incident, which endeared my Father to me more than anything in my memory, occurred on a Sunday afternoon in Ogden . . . There was to be a Big Baseball game on West 17th Street, I wanted so much to go to see it but, being Sunday, I knew my family would never consent . . . anyway . . . I had no money either, but the day of the game found me so eager to go that I slipped away from home and hitchhiked a ride to the ball park.  I stood by the gate forlornly hoping that, by some stroke of good fortune, I could gain entrance. Just as the game was about to begin, who gets off the streetcar but my FATHER, we both spotted each other at the same time . . . Oh! Oh!, I  thought, Here's where I get it!, and I wondered what my punishment would be.  Imagine my joyous surprise when my dear father came over to me . . . put his arm around me and said "Son" . . . "So you wanted to see it too", . . . "Let's go in".  From that moment on I felt an intense love added to my respect for my dear Dad   I had always regarded him as too sanctimonious to deviate from the straight and narrow path, but that one human act did more to win me over than anything he could have ever done.
         I remember one time, when my father, mother and brother and myself were seated at the dinner table for our evening meal, we saw, through our window, a great fire raging a short distance away to the north of our home.  We soon discovered that it was the barn of the Widow Fife which was on fire . . . the poor widow had recently put up all her hay for the winter and a new hay mower still unpaid for was in the burning barn.  My father excused himself from the table and said he had work to do, he left the house and was gone until late that night.  The next morning great loads of hay were being hauled to the widow Fife's to replace the hay burned up the night before and her sorrow turned to joy because her neighbors showed the right spirit.   After my father purchased the farm at the top of Goddard's hill in Bountiful, he ventured into the construction business by accepting a contract with his brother Hyrum to construct a section of roadbed for the Santa Fe Railroad.  They mistakenly figured that they could bridge a depressed section of the roadbed on their contract, but when it was too late to do otherwise, they found out that they would have to fill it in with earth, this ran their costs up far beyond the contract price and father had to have his farm, horses and equipment auctioned off in order to pay his debts. All he got out of the deal were a lot of worn out, useless scrapers.  For years we kept the photograph showing a line of scrapers apparently about a mile long.  This must have been a terrific blow to father, because his farm was such a good one with a private fishpond stocked with fish, beautiful horses and everything to afford a comfortable living.
        At the time of his death,  a news item appeared in the Deseret News, Saturday July 22, 1911, Headed: JOSEPH GODDARD PIONEER IS DEAD;; "Well known business man passes to final rest at age 67 years." Finishes:   "The deceased was a gentleman of honesty, intelligence and devotion to his family, and leaves many friends who will regret to learn of his death." [Signed Son, Percival Lundberg Goddard;; Dated at Los Angeles, California;; October 7th, 1965]
