Union County Coroner's Inquisitions, 1806-1869 (Continued from Vol. XVIII,

Jurors summoned were Wm. Smith, Wm. Gipson, Wm. Kelly, J. P. Sartor, James
Sartor, Wm. Sartor, A. Hollingsworth, Thos. Nance, Thos. P. Sims, Wm.
Carter, Thos. Tailor, John Smith, James Jeter, Nathan Goset, George Hill and
Dr. C. T. Colman.

1840 Union Co.S.C. listed Nathan Gossett as 20/30, 1 female 20/30, 1 female 5/10, 1 male 5/10, and 2 females u/5.  According to family records, the children would be: Lucinda, John Hollis/Nathan, Caroline and Mary. (Go to 1840 Union S.C. census)

1850 Union Co.S.C. census listed: Nathan Gosit age 43, Rena 43, Lucinda 21, Caroline 16, Mary 14, Emilia 12, Louisa 8, Sama 6, Elizabeth 4 and William 1. (go to 1850 Union S.C.census)

1860 Union Co.S.C. Nathan Gosit age 53, Rena 50, Elmina 23, Louisa 20, Sama 19, Stokes (added) 17, William 13, Lifa 10. (view 1870)


1870 Union Co.S.C. census listed: Nathan Gosit age 61, Rena 58, William 21, Martha (wife of William) age 20, James Gosit age 6 born ca 1864, and Manor Smith age 10 born ca. 1860.  Manor Smith may be a grandson, and possibly the son of Lucinda Goset.  Lucinda may have married a "Smith" as she is not in the household in 1860 with Nathan & Arena. (view 1880 census)

Neighbors to Nathan and Arena Goset in 1870 Union S.C. is: Jepthe Clark age 29 born ca. 1841, Susan age 26 born ca. 1844 (may be the dau listed as "Sama") and Nathan Clark age 1 born 1869.

Also: John Alston age 22 born ca. 1848, Laura age 25 born ca, 1845, Wm. age 8, Mary 3, and Starks age 1. (It appears that Laura Goset married John Alston/Austin).

Nathan age 12
Rebecca ge 9
Charles age 4
Beauford age 1
Frank GOSSETT age 16 b.ca. 1864 listed as: Nephew.

 There is a James Gossett born ca. 1864 in household of Nathan and Arena in 1870.   James may have been the son of Nathan and Arena, but I think Rena may have been too old to have children in 1864.  It is also possible that "James" and Frank, are one and same, and may have been the son of Lucinda or John Hollis Gossett since Frank is listed as "Nephew".

William age 17
Mary age 13
Starks age 11

It is stated that Arena (Bishop) Goset lived to be 100 years old, and in 1880 she was living in Arkansas with her granddaughter Elinor Jane "Janie" (Goset) Reeves, Clayton.  Descendants also state that Arena (Bishop) Goset returned to Union S.C. were she is most likely buried.

Nathan Goswick born 1806/7 Franklin Co. North Carolina was the son of George & Rebecca (Boone) Goswick.  In 1812 George Goswick mentions his son "Nathan" in his will.  In 1816 Nathan's mother re-married a James Goswick and this family if found as "Gossett" in Union Co.S.C. 1840.

My grandfather was Avy Fay Goset, youngest son of John Hollis Goset. Avy Fay's mother was Tchula Clayborn of Tennessee. I was always told growing up that Tchula was full blooded Cherokee indian and was adopted by Mr and Mrs Clayborn, who was a minister. After they adopted Tchula, they moved to Arkansas, where she met and married John Hollis.
I am trying to find any records for Tchula's indian ancestry, as I am interested in membership in the Cherokee nation.
If anyone has any information to share please email me at lovebeingmommie@yahoo.com.
Thanks in advance.
