Bio and Links
Starting my family tree research in the 70's, I regained my passion in the 90's as a computer engineer, knowing that computers were the key to studying so much historical evidence!

My primary effort, is a surname morphology research of the following:

Goswick / Gossett / Gussett / Gosset / Goset families in USA bef 1920

Feel free to contact me or visit my public Ancestry tree. I would love to have your additions, corrections or comments!

Hello Chris. I am glad you are enjoying the photo. We spent 5 hours cleaning the cemetery to get photos. Now I learn that Find A Grave is owned by
Ancestrydotcom. It will be my last cemetery to put photos on. Because people had a free service which now the site is controlled and sold on their main site. Sorry to see it. Genealogist

Gossett inquiry
Hi Chris, I see your request for the Meredith Gossett headstone in Gossett Cemetery in Hickman County,TN and the response another volunteer has left regarding the challenges in multiple cemeteries with the same name. Do you have Meredith's death certificate reflecting that he is buried in Gossett Cemetery? Do you happen to know where his wife, Sarah is buried also? Of note, I see on the Family Search database their children Clabe H. Gossett (1848~1928) and Columbus Gossett(1852~1928) and A.M.Gossett (1858~1921) have death records with burial sites noted, they are not noted on Meredith's page under his children's names. It appears that a fellow family researcher has been or is still working on this same family tree as Family Search has a database at the bottom of the page on this Meredith and Sarah Gossett that may be of interest to you. Let me know if you find any further specifics and I'd be happy to do some more Graveyarding for this request. Helen Murphy of Tennessee

Memorial for G. Gossett
I didn't take the picture Chris. It was taken by JD. Click on his initials under the picture and you can go to his site and ask him if he will try to highlite it. I live up in Elizabethtown, KY and I don't know when I'll be back down in that area.
