3. Iris Lucille Goswick b. 8/30/1917 Delta, Co. d:12/12/1988 San Marcas,Ca.(m) Truman W. Pugh

Ralph Goswick, son of Francis Marion and Martha E. (Coxen) Goswick.  His wife Sabra Atlanta Martin was the daughter of Daniel N. and Angeline (JORDAN) MARTIN.    In corresponding with Fern Goswick about Wayne Francis/Marion Lee Goswick, she had a very interesting story as to how he wound up with both names.  He was born Wayne Francis Goswick, and Wayne Francis is on his headstone.  When Wayne was about 25 years of age, he needed his birth certificate and when it came, it had the name Marion Lee on it.  He needed work badly and felt he did not have time to get the name changed, so every thing they bought was in the name of Marion Lee Goswick, and finally things became too complicated to change his name to his legal name, and their childrens birth certificates show their father to be: Marion Lee Goswick, altho his real name was Wayne Frances, and that is why I have Wayne Francis Goswick on his headstone.
