George W. (Washington) Goswick, son of George Goswick who died 1812 Franklin Co. N.C. leaving a will and mentioning his sons and daughters.  Nancy Elizabeth Powers was the daughter of Nathaniel & Mary (?) Powers of Humphrey Co.Tn...One of her brother's "William Powers" , his wife "Nancy", and two children were in Conway Co.AR. 1850 with John & Martha (Goswick) Roy, then both families went into Mo., and then down to Boone Co.AR. where John & Martha (G) Roy remained, and William Powers (missing for 1860), but his family is found in Newton Co.Ar. 1860, and living near William Isaac Goswick and his family.

George W. Goswick is believed to be living with his older brother Thomas Goswick b. 1795 in Union Co.S.C. in 1820.  Thomas was listed as "Gossett" for the 1820 Union Co.S.C. census, but by 1830 he is Goswick again.  Nathan Powers and his family also lived in Union Co.S.C., and it is believed that George W. Goswick traveled from S.C. to Williamson Co.Tn. where Nathaniel Powers is living in 1820 and by 1830 Nathaniel Powers, and George W. Goswick are in Humphreys Co.Tn., and in 1840 both families are in Dickson Co.Tn..

It is stated that George W. Goswick's wife married several times after George died, and that one of the husbands was a "Prince", and the other was named "John McCoy" who lived in Tn.. No proof has been found on re-marriages of Nancy Elizabeth (Powers) Goswick.


Sarah Jane Goswick, sister of James Thomas Goswick.  It has been stated that Sarah Jane Goswick married a Manord/Maynord and that she had two children, a son named "Tom" and a daughter(name unk), and that Sarah Jane had died and these two children were taken in by James Thomas & Martha Anne (Chism) Goswick.  To date, I have not been able to find the census on James Thomas Goswick for the years 1850-60-70, but he does appear in Pope Co.Ar. in 1880.


It has been told by the old timers of our Goswick family that Mary Goswick died at age 14 while wading in some creek, they said she screamed out and James Thomas Goswick ran to her, and she died in his arms.  No one seemed to know why she died so suddenly, but they stated that their grandpa said blood was gushing from Mary's mouth when she died in his arms.

Some of the old timers said that James Thomas Goswick had a brother named "John" who was a lot younger than James T., and that John had run away from home when a young boy and they never saw him again.
