Dando family in Dudley, England>NY/NJ

I'm looking for information on the Dando family of Dudley, England in the mid 1800's which later migrated to the U.S., settling in the New York/New Jersey areas.

My GGgrandfather was Henry Herbert Goodreds, born probably somewhere in the 1860's. I do not know if he was born in England or in the U.S. but his Goodreds roots were in the town of Dudley, England. Henry's biological father was a Goodreds, however I do not know his first name. His biological father may have died, divorced his mother, etc. because Henry's mother re-married a Mr. Dando and this Mr. Dando raised Henry. I do not know either of the parent's names, unfortunately...the bio. father, the mother, or Mr. Dando.

Henry Herbert Goodreds married Florietta "Florence Edna" Kellington in Brooklyn, Kings Co., New York in the early 1900's. They had 3 boys: Herbert LeGrande Goodreds, Arthur Goodreds, and Thomas Ralph Goodreds. Herbert Goodreds was my great-grandfather.

Any help, leads, or info would be greatly appreciated. I know I am missing huge details (names, dates, etc.) but hopefully all of the pieces will eventually come together.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Take care,
