From the records of Sally Goodwin Klein, a published copy of a poem written by Dr. Robert Archer was provided and is retyped below:


A Poem written by Dr. Robert Archer, Richmond VA
Dec 26, 1866

'Twas the night after Xmas, and all through the town,
The nurses were running, some up and some down.
The doctor was wanted, for a plague on Old Nick,
His visit had made all the little ones sick.
His cakes were so nice, and his pies were so sweet,
That from morning till night they did nothing but eat.
Their hearts were all light and peeped out of their eyes;
There stomachs were tight and chock full of mince pies.

They were as merry as larks, had no care for tomorrow,
Unmindful that joy is soon followed by sorrow.
The lights were all out, and the blinds were all closed;
Papa and Mamma in deep slumber reposed,
The cat on the hearth rug was licking her paws,
And seemed to be thinking of Old Santa Claus.
The fire in the chimney burned cheerful and bright,
And the frost on the panes shone like crystals of light.

The tea-kettle bubbling before the warm blaze
Was singing the dirge of once happier days.
The clock on the mantel had just sounded one,
And announced that another new day had begun,
When hark! from the nursery a solo of moans,
Then a duet of sobs, with a chorus of groans,
Broke in on the stillness and silence of night,
And threw the whole house in commotion and fright.

The mother's quick ear first encountered the sound;
She jumpted up in bed and sprang out with a bound;
Papa had oft witnessed such tumult before,
And the louder the groans, why, the louder he'd snore;
But oh, such a scene was ne'er witnessed before,
The children were rolling about on the floor !
The bed clothes were ruined, the carpet was spoiled,
And their pretty night dresses were rumpled and soiled.

The nurse all bewildered was fretting and grieving,
The children in concert were retching and heaving,
"Oh! me, I'm so sick, I shall die of this pain,
I'll never touch Santa Claus candy again!"
Poor Ma, in a flutter threw up her sad eyes,
Little Bob with a splutter threw up his mince pies,
And St. Nick, who was peeping, cried out with a titter,
"In everything sweet, there's a drop that is bitter,
But cheer up, my children, you'll soon be all right";
And cracking his whip he soon dashed out of sight.

The crisis was over and all went to bed,
Sweet slumber soon fell on each dizzy head;
The life blood again freely coursed in their veins,
And dreams of St Nicholas danced through their brains.
With a smile they awoke from their visions of bliss,
As Mamma on each rosy lip planted a kiss;
And they vowed that in spite of all sickness and pain,
They would hang up their stockings next Christmas again.
Archer, Dr. Robert (I77)

From VTS Archivist: Rev. Robert A. Goodwin, 1886-1971, VTS 1910. Dr. Goodwin was Dean of Bishop Payne Divinity School, Petersburg, Virginia, and came to teach at this institution when BPDS closed in 1949. As Archivist for both institutions, it is my specific responsibility to identify and collect the personal and professional papers of the deans and professors of BPDS and VTS. The VTS Archives does not possess any papers of Dr. Goodwin and I have been unable to identify any collections of such papers in any other repository. Do you or other members of your family still have Dr. Goodwin's personal papers?
Alice Armitage, Granddaughter of Robert Archer Goodwin I, adds the following about the missionary years:
When he went in 1910, he was most likely sent to language school for 6 months to a year. From the research I did for ..... it appears that almost all missionaries spent time in language school in Shanghai before being posted at a mission.
Most of the Episcopalian Missions in China were located along the Yangtze River. I don’t know if our Grandfather was posted to a mission before he returned to Virginia to marry Granny in 1912. But I know that after he and Granny married, they were sent to Kiukiang (under current spelling conventions (called pinyin) the town is now Jiujiang, but still means Nine Rivers), a small city up the Yangtze once the center of the China Tea Trade. At that time, it was about a three days boat ride from Shanghai.

Boone University, where Conrad was posted, was located in the town of Wuchang ( At the time it was a separate entity located across the river from the bigger town of Hankow. Now they have merged, along with another nearby town, Hanyang, and are collectively referred to as Wuhan.). Wuchang was farther up the Yangtze, i.e. farther inland and was probably at least a day’s travel from Kiukiang by the transportation available then on the river (there were no roads to speak of). But from what I can gather, the missionaries up and down the Yangtze did keep in pretty close touch with one another so I am sure that our grandfather and Conrad would have had some communication and probably visited one another while they were both there.

The town of Kuling, (current spelling is Guling), where your father was born, was a summer retreat in the Lushan mountains just south of Kiukiang. The town was developed by the missionaries in China around 1895 in order to allow the families living along the Yangtze to escape the heat and disease of the intense summers in the region. (Conrad and Robert may well have seen each other there as well.) Many families spent three months or more up there, with the missionaries themselves coming up as often as possible. (The only way to get up to Kuling at that time was to climb a steep set of stairs (one account I read said there were at least 1000 steps straight up). Most of the women and children and probably a fair number of the men were carried up the stairs by coolies).

Our grandfather returned to Kuling in 1921 to work at the American school set up there for Chinese children. Your father and my mother and Uncle John (at the time a small baby) did accompany both of their parents there. I have pictures of all of them in China and my mother used to tell me stories of what she remembered of their life in China. I know that Granny had not wanted to go back to China (the stories I have read of life over there for the missionaries make it quite clear that it was not an easy life, especially for the families) and had a “breakdown” of sorts that required them to return much sooner than expected. I gather that our grandfather loved being a missionary and would have stayed in China for his entire career if it had been up to him. (I thought it interesting that, on the picture that you sent, the words “go ye into all the world” are written on his headstone. It is those words in the New Testament that Christians have always interpreted to demonstrate God’s desire to spread the word of Jesus to other cultures. I have read that those words are inscribed prominently at VTS and that, at the time that Robert and Conrad graduated from there, it was considered the highest calling of a new cleric to volunteer for missionary work.)

[Note: An update of the area nearly 100 years later written by Alice Armitage: From one of the recent guidebooks (2004) I have about Lushan, I understand that the Kuling American School (also designated Villa No. 381) is now the Yee Yuan Guest House. It is apparently located a little bit outside of what was the main town area of Kuling in what was then called Cow Valley. It is now called Dong Gu (East Valley). According to this guidebook, almost 1000 of the original villas built by Westerners still exist, including Dr Barrie's Hospital where Robert Archer Goodwin, Jr. was most likely born (it is now the Lushan Hotel).

Alice Armitage adds information to the period in which the children of Robert Archer Goodwin II and Emily Gravatt were sent to live with relatives.
My mother also mentioned being sent to live with relatives. It was my impression that this occurred after they returned from China and was due to Granny’s “breakdown”. I got the sense from my mother that she had never completely forgiven her mother for being sent off alone, without her brothers, to live with people she did not know well. It was not, for her, a pleasant experience.

Regarding Conrad's tour of duty as Locum Tenens Grace Church, Plymouth NC, Conrad Goodwin was in North Carolina for less than a year. His entry in Stowe’s Clerical Directory of the American Church, 1929-1930, pp. 136-137, list him at Grace Church, Plymouth, NC, between his time in France and his rectorship of Zion and St. Andrew’s Parish, WV, 1920-1927, but giving no dates for North Carolina. The Journals of the Diocese of East Carolina (location of Plymouth), however, never listed him as canonically resident in that Diocese. The Southern Churchman came through for me again.

"A Link Among the Days", pg 21, notes Frank's birth in 1842
"A Link Among the Days", pg 22, notes that
- by 1858, "Frank and his uncle William M. Archer had become partners in Richmond's Vulcan iron Works."
- in 1870, he quit the iron works and poor health drove the family from Richmond to the country, on doctors orders. Nothing in Frank's or Letitia's background was conducive to successful farming.
- the family moved to Norwood, VA (formerly New Market, VA) because Dr. William H. Ribble, married to Frank's sister Fanny Goodwin, had a practice there and might have the benefit of his medical expertise.
- in Norwood, they initially lived with the Ribbles and then to a home next door to the Ribbles, just above the church on the east side of the village
- received $5,060 from Letitia's father to "acquire a 563 acre farm on the river bottoms a mile east of the house. Frank took title as trustee for his wife. He seems never to actually have grasped the plow. Will said his father 'fared from a distance;' tenants worked the place on shares. 'We alwasy believed that the tenants made a very good living fromthe farm." "We were never quite certan that we did."
- Frank and Letitia moved to Wytheville, VA sometime before 1889. (p 33)

Newspaper Obituary in Archer Family Records
"GOODWIN-Entered into rest on Thursday, August 26th, 1890, in Salem, Roanoke county, Va., Sallie Carter Crump Goodwin, wife of Rev. R. A. Goodwin, and daughter of the late Dr. William and Mrs. Alice G. Crump of Albemarle, in the twenty-first year of her age.
So has passed away from the friends who loved to the God who gave her one of those sweet spirits whom we can so hardly spare save for the brighter ministry of heaven. From earliest childhood she realized her duties and her privileges as a “child of God,” and the characteristics of her whole life were her devotion to duty and her simple-hearted trust in the Saviour. Led by the dealings of God’s providence, in her girlhood’s days she learned the responsibilities of womanhood, and became the stay and solace of a widowed mother. Called at an early age to the duties of wife and mother, she performed them well, to the glory of God. In her own home she developed to a remarkable degree those lovely Christian graces which so plainly mark the life hid with Christ in God. The heart of her husband did safely trust in her, and he found her a ready and efficient helper in the work of turning souls into righteousness.
Her end was a fitting one to such a life. Her work and her sufferings finished, at once she slept in Jesus; and as the daylight of heavenly rest broke upon the happy soul a smile of joy left its impress on the face of the dead. The Father had gathered home His own, yet left us the precious example of one who walked humbly with God and glorified Him in every relation of life.
“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
E.L.G. [Rev Edward Lewis Goodwin was brother in law of Sallie Carter Crump Goodwin]

Newspaper IN MEMORIUM in the Archer Family Records
"In Memoriam
At a meeting of the members of St. John’s church, held August 20th, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted:
We have met this evening to render a tribute of sympathy to our beloved pastor, occasioned by the death of his cherished wife, who passed away from our midst on Sunday last to where beyond these voices there is perfect peace.
The following is a just tribute to the memory of one whose demise has filled so many hearts with sorrow.
The beauty and purity and eternity of the virtues which ever animated the bosom of the new entombed one it is the melancholy pleasure to record, which brings with it no sting, but “death swallowed up in victory.”
Kind, gentle and affable, none could approach our beloved sister without being impressed by the amiability and fullness of heart that her excessive modesty could not conceal. In the domestic circle her virtues shone with a most cheerful radiance, and that circle, alas, suffers the darkest eclipse from death.
Now the altar round which clustered the sympathies and hopes and loves of a family which were wont to commune is draped in cypress, but at the foot of that altar and by the side of that cypress is the “nether end of a bow” stretching far heavenward and spanning the mournful scene with the glittering promise of a reunion above. May that promise be fulfilled, and the loved ones below regard the beloved as “not dead, but gone before.” We cannot measure our sympathy in words, but we can try to imitate her beautiful Christian ideal, which was love and charity to all, and practiced in her daily life.
Resolved, That we assure the bereaved family of our tender sympathy and Christian love in this time of deep distress.
Resolved, That a copy of these proceedings be conveyed to the family, and a copy be published in the daily papers.
Mrs. S. REED, Chairman,
Mrs. S. CRUMP,
Mrs. McMINN,
Mrs. G. S. CURRIE, Committee
Mrs. J. E.FITZ
