This page will be under construction for some time and info will be added daily.There are 2,897 deaths listed on the ss death records beginning with the year 1869 of Gossett's.  The Goset families that I have found are also of the Gossett/Goswick family.  If you are unable to find your ancestor listed as Gossett, then please check the different spellings of the surname as you may find it as:Gassett, Gossick, ect..  We never know how the census takers have spelled the surname.  Many years ago I corresponded with an elderly lady who said her family went by the last name of "Gossett", but he mother had told her that the surname used to be "fossett".  So there is another surname spelling that you may wish to check out as there were "fossett" families in Va. in 1790, and "fossett" families in S.C., also Ms..

I do hope by charting these ss death records of different surname spellings that you may be able to find your ancestors whether they be Gossett, Gassett, Gussett, Gostick, Gossick, Joswick, "even Goswick or Gossitt".  We may be able to add a few more different ways of spelling the surname.

Oct. 1st. 1998-Here is a list of surnames found on the SS Death Records that you may wish to check out if you cannot find your surname listed on records the way that you normally spell it.

Gossett 2,897-Gosset 40,  Gossitt 7, Gossit 2, Gositt 2, Goset 7, Gassett 255, Gasset 7, Gosewisch 44, Goswick 209, Goswic  1, Gaswick 2, Coswick 2, Joswick 139, Cossett 34, Cosset 1, Coset 4, Cossitt 61, Bostwick 1,305, Boswick 16, Bostic 2,315, Bostick 1,947, Gostick 15 ,Gastick 2,  Gostic 9. Gossick 27, Gassick 3. Gosewisch. {kgk}

To really look at the spellings of these surnames, and by just removing the first letter ex: G in Gossett to C and you have Cossett.  G in Gostwick to B and you have Bostwick and so on.  "Very Interesting" {kgk}
