Gossman Susannah E. [Female] b. 27 DEC 1848 Rose Farm, Morgan Co, OH - d. 5 AUG 1925 Benton Co, IA

General Notes: Morgan Co., Ohio, Marriage Records, Book E, 1 February 1867-19 September 1878, Leonard Brecht and Susanna E. Gassman (Gossman) were married 20 February 1870, by J. S. Collins, Catholic Priest, page 223.
Church of the Atonement Cemetery records: Gossman, Susannah, wife of John J. died 20 May, 1895, age 79y, 3m, 20d.
Dates for Susannah Gossman Brecht come from "Brecht Family
Tree" by Iver Brecht.
Brecht Family History has her born 1848 and died 30 May 1924 in either Norway or Fairfax, Iowa. Also, the 1900 Census states that she was born February 1848. We previously had a birth date of 27 February 1848. The 1880 Census gives her age as 32, so it sounds like the 1848 date must be right. Don't know where the 23 April 1847 date came from, except that a Gossman descendant, Elmer Gossman, had that date and where he got it, I don't know.

Another source says Susannah was born in Crooksville, Ohio.

After returning to the United States, she served as a pastoral minister, and as a volunteer in AIDS ministry. Today, Sr. Cornelia is the assistant librarian at the motherhouse.

Dear Jim,

First: Grandpa Valentine Bock was married twice. Ida Jansen Bock was My dad's (Paul Bock) mother. She died 13 days after dad was born. His grandparents Matthew and Helena Jansen took him into
their home and raised him as one of their family. When Paul was nineteen his father married Josephine Givens. Valentine and Josephine had three children, Margurite, Jane and John.
I do not know why Paul was listed twice in the census. Valentine was living in Wichita. I do not know if he lived with his dad or with his grandparents after he returned home from St. Benedict's in Atchison. Both Valentine and Josephine lived to be over 80 years old.

Yes, you are related on both sides of the family. Your great great grandfather was my mother's (Barbara Diefenbach) first cousin. Your great great grandmother was my father's aunt.

Second: I was born in Anaheim California. My parents lived in California from 1918 to 1926. They moved from Schulte, Kansas. They returned to farm in Kingman County Kansas in the Willowdale community. My brother Dick was in the Naval Air Corps during WWII and died in a plane crash. He is buried in Willowdale. My parents retired in Kingman but are buried in Willowdale.

My siblings have all died, Ida Evelyn died at the age of 5 weeks, the others Helen Idel, Paul Richard, Robert Valentine, John Joseph, and my foster-sister Margaret (mom's niece). I (Barbara Belle) am the last of the Paul and Barbara Bock family.

If there is any other information I could supply, Please feel free to ask.

God bless you.
