- According to notes in his handwritten biographical sketch, John Henry Goodman sailed aboard the Allen Line ship SS Tunisian embarking from Liverpool, England 25 August 1910.
The Tunisian was a primary carrier of British Home Children. These children were forced to emigrate from England, and then bound to work for Canadian families - a practice which went on across the Commonwealth until the early 1960’s. Jack was not one of these children, but received a letter in England while from John Price, a school friend who had gone to Canada as a child, and offered to assist him to travel to Canada, sending him a ticket for travel from Liverpool to Quebec aboard the SS Tunisian. Jack arrived in Quebec on 2 September. He worked as a farm laborer in Canada for a year. He left Canada via train on 7 September 1911, to arrive in Brooklyn, New York where he found work as a shipping clerk. While in Brooklyn, he met and courted Jessie Irene Truss, the sister of George Truss, a fellow Englishman he befriended and met with a couple of times each week after work.
His WW I Draft Registration Card on June 5, 1917 lists him as living at 9 Reynolds Hill, Mystic, CT while employed by Mr. Albert Haley as a gardener in Mystic. He is described as medium in build with grey eyes and brown hair.
