Jesse Nelson Goswick was the son of James Thomas and Martha Ann (Chism) Goswick of Pope and Yell Co's, Arkansas.  His wife Nettie Jeanetta Dunlap was the daughter of Dal, and Martha (Branch) Dunlap of Pope Co.Ar..

Jesse Nelson Goswick and his wife Nettie Goswick are buried  in the McFadden Cemetery, Dover, Arkansas.  Their twin daughters are buried at Cathy Cemetery, near Eufaula, Ok., and two other daughters are buried at Boyd Cemetery, Hector, Ark..

The birth records of Jesse Nelson and Nettie (Dunlap) Goswick were supplied by Ethel Jane (Goswick) Wooten.  There is some question on the birth and death records of Nettie Goswick as I find on the Social Security Death Records a: Nellie Goswick b. March 06,1883 died May 15,1967 Atkins, Ark..  I believe this "Nellie" Goswick is "Nettie" Goswick, widow of Jesse Nelson Goswick.
