ARCHIE L. GOODVIN (GOODWIN), the noted hunter of Clark County, residing on section 32, Hixon Township, was born near Dubuque, Iowa, February 27, 1859, the son of David R. Goodvin, a native of Illinois. The latter, now of Washburn County, Wisconsin, was a pioneer of Iowa and also of Wisconsin, having removed to the latter state in 1858, settling in Sauk County, where he lived until 1868. He then went to Jackson County, and remained until the fall of 1870, when he came to this county and settled two miles east of Thorp, Withee Township, then Hixon, but removed to Washburn County in 1887. The subject of this sketch settled on his present farm of eighty acres in October, 1878, and has since cleared thirty acres of this tract. He is engaged in hunting every fall, and works in the woods in the winters. He has killed not less than twenty deer each fall for the past twelve years, and in one fall killed forty-nine , and has also killed about fifty or more bear since he settled on his present place. Mr. Goodwin was married May 17, 1875 to Clara Clark, a daughter of Israel Clark, deceased. Of their eight children, six are now living: Eva, Ida, William, Maud, Frank and George.
