The Goodyear family of New York is a prominent family from Buffalo, New York whose members founded, owned and ran several businesses, including the Buffalo and Susquehanna Railroad, Great Southern Lumber Company, Goodyear Lumber Co., Buffalo & Susquehanna Coal and Coke Co., and the New Orleans Great Northern Railroad Company. They were also involved in the arts. Anson Goodyear was an organizer of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City; he served as its first President and a member of the Board of Trustees.[1]

Prominent members[edit]

Charles W. Goodyear[edit]

Frank H. Goodyear[edit]

Frank, the younger brother of Charles W. Goodyear, married Josephine and together they had four children: (1) Grace Goodyear, who married Ganson Depew in 1894. Depew was the nephew of Chauncey Depew, President of New York Central and United States Senator from New York from 1900-1911. Ganson was admitted to the bar in 1887, but stopped practicing law to work for his father-in-law and became Manager of Goodyear Lumber Co., Vice-President of Buffalo and Susquehanna Coal, and assistant to the President of the Buffalo and Susquehanna Railroad.[2] (2) Josephine Goodyear, who married George Montgomery Sicard in 1900. Sicard came from Utica, New York; his paternal uncle, George J. Sicard, was a partner of Cleveland, Bissell & Sicard, and later of Goodyear's firm of Bissell, Sicard & Goodyear. George Sicard attended Yale University, entering with the class of 1894, and leaving at the end of his freshman year to attend the University of the State of New York, where he received his LL.B. in 1895. He moved to Buffalo where he began practice with Moot, Sprague & Brownell. After his marriage to Josephine, he went to work for the Goodyear companies. Josephine died in 1904. Soon afterward Sicard, who purportedly did not get along well with his father-in-law Frank Goodyear, resigned from the Goodyear companies and moved to Pelham Manor for the last 30 years of his life.[2] (3) Florence Goodyear, who married George Olds Wagner in 1902 in Buffalo. Florence attended the now defunct Saint Margaret's School, Buffalo, and finishing school in New York City. Wagner was a graduate of Cornell University.[2] (4) Frank Henry Goodyear, Jr., who married Dorothy Knox. Dorothy was the daughter of Seymour and Grace Knox. Knox was known for forming the F. W. Woolworth Company with his cousin Frank Winfield Woolworth, and held prominent positions in the Marine Trust Co. The Knoxes lived in Buffalo and East Aurora. They had a winter cottage on Jekyll Island, Georgia. After Frank Jr. died in 1930, his widow Dorothy Knox Goodyear later married Edmund Pendleton Rogers (1882-1966) in 1931.
