GOUGH Family by Kathleen Rogalla,
Kathleen Rogalla writes: Here's what I have on the Gough family. If your information differs from mine, please let me know. This is not written in stone.

Jesse Gough was born ca 1776 in VA. He died in Hamilton Co., IN. He was the son of Francis Gough and Verlinda Peck/Peak. (Note: I have the will of Francis Gough and at least one deed that includes Jesse and Verlinda.)

Jesse Gough married Elizabeth Hensley 09 Aug., 1799 in Fauquier Co., VA. Samuel Hensley was the bondsman. (note: i've seen Elizabeth listed as the daughter of Enoch Hensley, however, that information comes from the marriage bonds in Fauquier where Elizabeth's sister or cousin ??? Dulley Hensley, married Jesse Gough's brother Bailey Gough. Enoch Hensley was the bondsman for Dulley and I believe the record states he was her father.)

Maybe they were sisters and Enoch had died by the time Elizabeth married which was a couple of years after Dulley, and the bondsman was a brother??? Or maybe, Elizabeth and Dulley were cousins and Samuel was the father or brother of Elizabeth.

I cannot find the parents of my William M. Thompson. He was born in 1796 in KY and that is all I know. I thought that the most logical thing to think was that he was connected to David Thompson somehow and maybe he was but I can't find the connection. If you can shed any light on this, I will be forever grateful.

I think that whether Elizabeth Hensley's father was Enoch or Samuel, they were probably descendents of Samuel Hensley and Martha Snell. Samuel was from Stafford Co., VA and it appears that the Samuel who was the bondsman for Elizabeth was from out of the county. I can't find documentation of an Enoch Hensley anywhere although there obviously was one.

Jesse and Elizabeth Hensley Gough's children were:
1. Enoch H. Gough born ca 1799 in KY.
Married Martha Lackey.

2. William Coldstream Gough born ca 1801 in KY or Butler Co., OH.
He married Catherine Thompson, daughter of David Thompson and Mary Swope.

3. John Gough born 1803 in Butler or Preble Co., OH.
He married 1. Lucille Railsbach.
      2. Eliza Jane Carpenter.

4. Elizabeth Gough born 1805 in Butler Co., OH.
She married Caleb Frazee.

5. Mary Gough born 1807 in Butler Co., OH.
She married James Houston.

6. Susannah Gough born 1808 in Butler Co., OH (she is my ancestor).
She married 1. Jesse Fall/Fahl
      2. my ggg William M. Thompson

7. Delilah Gough born 1810 in Preble Co., OH.
She married Elisha Fall.

8. Jane Gough born 1813 in Preble Co., OH.
She married James Bishop.
