      Mr. Goatham had been a resident of Fremont since coming here in 1907 to make his home with his step-children. He is survived by five steps-sons and three step-daughters: Albert Hampshire if Alger street, Thomas Hampshire of South street, Henry Hampshire of Wolf avenue, Sidney Hampshire of west State street, Friend Hampshire and Mrs. Clara Denton of England, Mrs. Alfred Shilling and Mrs. Bert Wilkins of June street.
