I hope this e-mail to you will go through. I tried back in January to e-mail
you & it came back TWICE as incorrect address etc. I have made copies to two
others whom I hope will not mind, as they too are descended from OHIO Job..
The posting on Sunday I thought was understandable in that I thought that
Ohio Job's grandfather was John.
First off lets clear up something. There is only one line in Delaware prior
to 1810 or thereabouts. They came down through the main progenitor named
John Goslin or Gosling as listed as such in record books.
John's son Richard was the first to move from into what became Delaware and
around Dagsborough and Indian River & Angola Hundred when he moved to
Baltimore Hundred around 1740, which at the time was in Somerset County,
Maryland. Ohio Job has come down through Richard's descendants.
The second Goslee to move to what is now known as Delaware was Daniel Goslee
son of John Junior whose surname has consistently been spelled in a variety
of ways including Gauslin & Goslin; but at the time was either Nanticoke
Hundred or Wicomico Hundred, Somerset County and this is in the Laurel,
Delaware area and was later called Northwest Fork Hundred and later also
called Seaford and Broad Creek Hundred, with where Laurel now is finally
called Little Creek Hundred which is on the southern border of Broad Creek.
The third Goslee or Gosley to move into what is now known as Delaware is as
indicated in the Sunday posting the grandson of John the progenitor through
Thomas, SAMUEL BOARDMAN GOSLEE. Samuel moved to what was considered
Mispillion Hundred sometime between 1773 and 1779 as he is recorded as having
a deed made in 1779 in Book "W", volume 1 and page 169. It is thought that
he moved earlier than 1779. This was during the revolution and Somerset
County, Maryland suffered much as the British did much damage and of course
this is only conjecture on my part as I have no knowlege of why & how he
moved northward from what was then Somerset County and which later in 1867
became Wicomico County, Maryland.
Ken at onemain firmly believe's that OHIO Job's father was ALSO named Job.
During the War of 1812, a Job Goslee was a Sergeant and it is my belief that
a 20 or 22 year old WOULD NOT be a sergeant and that the sergeant as listed
being from Ross County, indeed is the father of Ohio Job. However I do not
have any facts backing this up.
One thing of interest is that in 1820 & 1830 census of Indian River Hundred a
Job Goslee is listed as being born around 1770 and this indeed could be Ohio
Job's father, however, if so, he has a 2nd wife which in those days, common
as many women died because of child birth. However admittedly this Job could
also have been a son of Richard Goslee Junior, and Ohio Job's father indeed
is John the brother of Richard Junior. However as stated Ken of onemain says
Ohio Job's father was also Job & he knows or should know more on this.
This is the only information that I have but you can bank on coming down
through Richard Goslee Senior, & you have the info on him in my posting
Now back to the John Gosley who is reported by the DAR in their publication
of those serving during the Revolution. The John as reported in this
publication could be in error. However for me I can only give the facts.
The wife of this John - Hannah Tull and John were married Sep. 1754 with John
being born at an unknown date - but go figure, he would have been OVER 50 but
then again I guess many over 50 did volunter and he had children born right
up to around 1782 so maybe this is right. Anyway this John is the son of
Mathew as listed in the posting Sunday.
In the Delaware Militia during the revolution another John served with them.
This John had his name spelled two different ways, making me think that this
could be two different John;s as Daniel Goslee's (whose surname has been
spelled Gauslin, Goslin etc) son John could have been in the militia and of
course Richard Senior's
son John, also could have been in the militia.
That's the breakdown of the John's known to me.
I myself in a hard way that you could not trace all the facts by looking up
Goslee and Gosley. The names have been spelled in almost 12 different ways.
Take Samuel Boardman Goslee's sons Richard and Samuel Junior. Richard and
his ancestors have their name spelled Gosslee and its on his cemetery
headstone. Samuel Senior's will states "Will of Samuel Gosslee" and his tax
list is a variety of ways. Oh
Richard is another known descendant in Ohio being buried in Madison County, I
believe if my memory is correct.
Samuel Junior had his name on his cemetery headstone in Yeoman Cemetery,
Yeoman, Jefferson Township, Carroll County, Indiana as GOSLEY. And majority
of his descendants spelled it as Gosley but around 1900 some have it as
Richard and Samuel Junior were the only know sons of Samuel Senior, alive in
1801, thus since their departure to Ohio etc there may not have been any
Goslee's left in Kent County, Delaware after that date.
I hope this is helpful and since it is now 6:40 or thereabouts and I have
been at this for what seems an hour must close and I hope that this goes
through to you.
Thank you for your e-mail and e-mail me again if any questions arise. In the
meantime check out Ken at onemain.
God Bless you all in Richland County, Ohio - Oh could I make a suggestion.
Since you are in Ohio, is it possible to find out the age of an individual
who served Ohio during the War of 1812? If so why not run this Job Goslee
that was a sergeant down. This would clarify something up. Thank you again
and God Bless.
