General Notes: Husband - George Hamilton Gooch

George Hamilton Gooch (1868 - abt 1957)

George Hamilton Gooch was a brother of William Elijah Gooch.

George Gooch moved to Texas in the late 1880's, first settling in Hunt County, in the town of Celeste. He lived in Hunt County for several years. Sometime in the early 1900's he went on west to Abilene, Texas. He helped found the First National Bank in Abilene, and served as one of the banks operating officers until he retired.

George was the only contact my mother ever had with the older Gooch's, that I know of. Mother visited him and his wife, Hattie, several times in the early 1950's. She had got in contact with them in an unusual way: she read a piece in the Abilene Reporter News about the Gooch Packing Company. The article was about the founder of that company, Pete Gooch. It mentioned that his father was George Gooch, and described how George had been one of the early settlers, and helped establish the bank in Abilene. Apparently Mother remembered her father talking about George Gooch. She wrote a letter, addressed to Pete Gooch at the Gooch Packing Plant in Abilene. In that letter, she described who she was, and her possible connection to George Gooch. She asked Pete to relay the information to his father. In a short time, she received a letter from George Gooch. After that, Mother visited them several times. George told many stories about spending time with her father, Jesse Gooch, as a boy and young man. Both he and Hattie seemed to know about the marriage of Jesse Gooch to Ira Scarborough. It seems that they were close to Jesse and Ira when they were married, and had stayed in touch with Ira after she parted with Jesse. They knew that Ira was still alive, living in Wichita Falls, Texas, as an old lady. They arranged for mother to meet with representatives from Ira at their home. Mother met with these people - an old man and old woman - behind closed doors. I don't know what was said at that meeting, but seemed to be very disturbing for Mother. She never talked about it much, and as far as I know, she never tried to contact her mother, Ira.

It is interesting to note that the family of Maggie (Gooch) Reynolds lived in Hamlin, Jones County, twenty miles from the town we lived in. George Gooch must have known that, but as far as I know, he never mentioned anything about it to my mother. I believe she would have tried to contact them, if she had known they were living there.

From what I know, George Gooch spent his younger years in northeastern Mississippi, and he did not leave there until he moved to Texas. He seemed to be an educated man, and he probably went away from there for a period to attend college. But, his stories indicate that Jesse Gooch lived nearby when they were boys and young men. That seems to place Jesse Gooch in that region of Mississippi as a boy and young man.

Samuel Campobello and Juanita Phillips

Husband Samuel Campobello

           Born: Abt 1920
       Marriage: 1950

Wife Juanita Phillips

            AKA: Ethel Juanita Phillips
           Born: 1 Aug 1921 - Zephyr, Brown Co., TX
           Died: Abt 1988 - TX

         Father: Walter Lee Phillips
         Mother: Ethel Beatty

   Other Spouse: Tommy *UNKNOWN - Abt 1940 - TX


General Notes: Wife - Juanita Phillips

Ethel Juanita Phillips b. 1 Aug. 1921 Zephyr, Brown Co., TX to Johnnie Ethel

Beaty & Walter Lee Phillips. A TX Death Index shows a Neta Campobello died

25 Mar. 1980 Comal Co, TX. From a Jorns Family Tree is shown Juanita Allen

Phillips b. 18 July 1921 Hopkins Co., TX m. Thomas R. Burtis. d. Mar. 1980

and is buried in the Mission Burial Park, N. Bexar Co. TX.

Liz Walton?s DB shows Ethel?s first husband was Thomas R. Burtis:

H.1) Thomas Ray Burtis b. ca Mar. 1918 to Etta Mae Hill &

Frederick William Burtis. Father of at least one daughter with mother

Juanita Allen. These parents are shown in the TX Birth Index.

Reconstructed Military records indicate Thomas R. Burtis b. ca

1917 in TX lived in San Joaquin Co. CA when he enlisted 11 Mar. 1946. These

type records indicate to ME this was at least the 2nd enlistment for Burtis

as it shows him as a Master Sergeant so he probably enlisted in the Army

BEFORE outbreak of WW II or was drafted around 1940. The 1946 Enlistment is

for the Regular Army. This Military record shows Burtis is Divorced with


Jenna Scott sent documents that indicated Thomas R. Burtis was a

Warrant Officer 1 in 1943 living in Alexandria or Pineville, LA with wife

Doris. This gives a clue about WW II when many enlisted were advanced to

Warrant or Officer status and given a choice when the war ended of taking a

discharge or reverting back to their permanent enlisted rank. Thomas Ray

Burtis probably took a discharge and shortly afterwards enlisted back into

the USA or USAAF with rank of Master Sgt.

The Jorns Tree also shows Thomas Ray Burtis had only one daughter

with Juanita Allen Phillips, Then two more children with his 2nd wife named

Doris Dunlap or Tucker? and his 3rd child being a son he named Thomas Ray

Burtis, Jr. b. 20 Dec. 1943 d. 3 Sep. 2000. Then Pansey Burtis was Thomas

Ray Burtis 3rd wife with they both living in Lubbock TX at time Junior died

3 Sep. 2000.

Thomas Ray Burtis was still living in Lubbock TX when his sister

Ada Burtis Russell d. 3 Mar. 2006 in Denison TX.

A. Tommie Jean Burtis b. 22 Nov. 1939 Bexar Co. TX

Tommie Jean Burtis may have married 3 times?

H.2) Samuel Campobello b. 13 Feb. 1921. Last Residence IAW the

SSDI was Spring Branch, Comal Co., TX at time of death 10 Oct. 2001

Samuel appears to have married June Ahrentzen 31 July 1982 Dallas

Co., TX. Probably his 2nd wife as his first wife appears to have died in

Mar. 1980. June born in June 1923 so Samuel was probably her 2nd husband.

Note. A Day family DB shows H.1) incorrectly as: Thomas E. Lawrence b. ca

1920 AKA Tommy. Killed as a soldier in 1944 during WW II. Ethel Juanita

Phlllips supposedly had 3 children by first husband? This is also wrong. She

only had one daughter by her first husband.
