Ellen B "Ella" Hansford Gosser
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 12, 1860
Kentucky, USA
Death: Mar. 14, 1921
Kentucky, USA

Ella is the daughter of Willis (Joshua Willis) and Mary P. Barnett, and the third wife (or fourth) of Levi B. Gosser. She was first married to James H. Phelps.

Levi and Ella had seven (known) children: Hila A., Patsie, Ella Bea, Alfonzo D., Oma M., Itilia A., and Levi B. Jr.

This entry is listed in "Russell County Cemeteries," Vol II, p. 88, for Russell Springs City Cemetery: Gosser, Eller B., 12 December 1860 - 14 March 1921. Her grave is listed as being in Row 15.

Thanks to Craig for confirming this cemetery location. Her name spelled as "Eller" on the grave marker. I wonder if that is a stone cutter's error or a nickname? She went by Ellen or Ella in family records.
