Hello
He is not kin to me. Do not transfer his memorial to me. But thank you for asking. That was kind of you.

Thanks for the exchange!
The numbers are 91295485, 91295439, 116342247, 91295590, and 116342319. I am going through the cemetery and collecting as many of the graves as I can and am trying to make sure the information is as complete as possible. Hope you are having a great day and may there be sun somewhere near you, it is gloomy here. Thanks again,

I meant to say John Mercer and Ruth Garett in the previous message.

RE: Ruth G Mercer
Your right. I looked again today and sure enough there is a Muskingum Co, Ohio marriage for John Gosnell and Ruth Garett 30 Nov, 1842 and the Muskingum Co, Ohio marriage for John Mercer and Ruth Gosnell was 28 Nov, 1842. Just two days apart. Strange but I stand corrected. Sorry for my confusion. Good luck.

Mercer Garrett vs Mercer Gosnell
Thats fine Laurie. I never disputed the off spring of John Mercer and Ruth. I looked at all the census info from 1850 to 1900, on the couple and I agree with all the children. The only thing I dispute is the marriage of a John Mercer and a Ruth Garrett in Muskingum Co, Ohio 1842. I've looked at the familysearch actual marriage document image. I have it on my computer. That marriage was between John Mercer and Ruth Gosnell. There was and is no marriage record actual image for a John Mercer and a Ruth Garrett. Whoever did the indexing for the Muskingum Co Marriages made an error and entered Garrett instead of Gosnell. Please feel free to share the online link with me for the familysearch marriage record image for Mercer and Garrett. Anyway....good luck with your research.

RE: Ruth G Mercer
I'm pretty sure Ruth was the oldest child and daughter of my gggg-gf Nicholas Gosnell and wife Sarah McIntyre. They lived in Spencer Twp, Guernsey Co, Ohio 1830 1840 which was just 6 to 10 miles from where John Mercer and Ruth Gosnell Mercer eventually lived in Meigs Twp, Muskingum Co, Ohio. They had 5 boys and two unidenified girls. The first girl being born 1819-1821. Allen Charles Gosnell b- 1822 muskingum, my John J Gosnell b-1823 muskingum and three other brothers all born muskingum. There was another daughter that I think must have died early.It's been a real brick wall for me too!! I'm excited about this new find and about possibly being related to the Mercer clan.More research required. I do have a jpeg image of the marriage record where it clearly says Ruth Gosnell not Ruth Garrett. I can send it for your review if you would like. I'll email you later for sure. legosnell@comcast.net

Sincerely
Larry Earl Gosnell
