William Goswick/Gossett was son of George Goswick of Bute Co. NC (now Franklin) and first wife (name unk). William's wife Lucinda "Lucy" was probably the dau of Nicholas Goswick/Gossett.

William Goswick is mentioned as the son of George Goswick in George Goswick's will 1812.  In 1816 William Goswick purchased 100 acres of land in Franklin Co.N.C. from his grandfather Joseph Goswick,Sr.. In 1830 William Goswick shows up in Union Co.S.C. near the other Goswick families, and in 1840 Union Co.S.C. William is listed as "Gossett".  William is still listed as Gossett on the 1850 Seiver Co. Tn. census and has not been found since the 1850 census so the surname may have changed for the 2nd or third time.

Franklin Co.N.C. Marriages

Josephus Goswick (m) Nov.15,1836 Ada Burnette (this marriage date is possibly incorrect, unless Ada Burnette was only 12 years old when she married){kgk}  Is this Jonathan Gothwith/Gossett, Josephus Jonathan Goswick who married Ada Burnett in Franklin Co.N.C.????

Marriage of Edgefield Co.S.C. (supplied by Jeff Gossett of S.C.)

Muse Gossett (m) Aug.24,1864 Mary Jane Bullock

Jeff Gossett thinks that this Muse/Mose Gossett is the Muse Gossett b. 1810.

1820 Spartanburg Co.S.C. census:
Moses Gosett/Gopett listed with 9 sons in the household, and one female.

1830 Spartanburg Co.S.C. is:
Moses Gosey, Esq. 50/60 (1770-80)1 male 15/20(1810-1815) and one female 50/50)

The male 15/20 (b.ca.1810-15) would fit the description of Jonathan Gothwith/Gossett b.1810/15 living in Spartanburg Co.S.C. 1850 and 1860.

According to this 1830 census, Moses Gosey,Gosett,Gopet is missing 8 son's since the 1820 census.
