Dora Elsie Mills was born in Vanderuff, Ohio, June 11, 1875. She was educated at Reedville, Ohio, preparing to teach school. When 17 she came to Tillamook and in 1892 taught mathematics at May academy, Tillamook, the first teacher training school to be organized in the coast country.

In 1895 she was married to Clay Daniel, a Tillamook county farmer, and for 28 years they lived on the same farm. Her husband lost his life in 1923 when gored by a Holstein bull.

During her long residence in Tillamook county, Mrs. Goodman was for 13 years postmistress of a country office located in their farmhouse. She saw the first railroad built into the coast section.

Shortly after her husband's death she came to Monmouth to live. She was active here in grange work; and operated a real estate office for several years. She maintained business interests in Tillamook also, having helped to organize the first creamery and cheese factory in that county.

In 1926 she was married to James Goodman of Monmouth, formerly a Tillamook county road supervisor. He died several years ago.

Dora Mill Daniel Goodman is buried next to her first husband Clay Daniel in an unmarked grave -
