|Don DeWitt||RE: Andrew Hanks photo|
There may be graves in the Gooch cemetery that have no photos so your help is appreciated.
About 10 years ago there was a project online that had indexed the cemetery with photos including yardsticks to show dimensions of the graves. The cemetery at that time was neatly mowed. I think the website was maintained by a history teacher in the local high school. Later the website disappeared and all of that effort with it.
You can see one of the photos on this Gooch memorial
So I started to rebuild the history of the cemetery all over again.
My connection to the Gooches is via the Knifong family
Here are some other Gooch efforts I have done in the past

Thanks very much! Your photo is helpful in completing our effort to construct a historical collection of the cemetery buried.
Yes, I'm familiar with Gooch Cemetery -- I have visited several times. It is close to my parent's farm.
There is a genealogy section at the public library in Brookfield -- this may be your best research facility.
I'm curious as to your lineage. Do we have a common ancestor? One of William Greenup Gooch's daughters, Missouri Linn, married Fielden Hanks. Are these your ancestors?
