The Story Continues: Ohio

Some of the Goss descendants left Pennsylvania and migrated to Ohio.  These are the descendants of Philip and Mary (Kendall) Goss who settled in Huntington Twp., Luzerne Co., Ohio before the revolution and before it became Pennsylvania.

One of their sons, Solomon Goss and his wife Olive Scott headed west and first to what is called Dayton, Ohio about 1796 and something happened that made them migrate to Marietta, Ohio.  They were in Washington County by 1798 when their daughter Elizabeth married Andrew Lake. Their other daughter Lydia, married John Andrews Spracklin in 1819 and settled in Knox Co., Ohio.  Lydia and John’s son Daniel D. Spracklin married Elizabeth Keller, whose mother was a Delano. 

Solomon’s younger brother Ebenezer Goss migrated about 1804 to Portage Co., Ohio.  Their brother’s son John Goss also migrated to Portage Co., Ohio.  Various other family members came to Ohio as well.

In August 2011 I traveled to Ohio and I share that trip on the blog:  Solomon Goss of Fearing Township in Ohio
