      From the notes of Kent M. Gossman:
      Elmer Gossman's notes, p. 48 show a baptism of a Daniel Gossman, son of Andrew and Ann Gossman, on 13 APR 1823 at St. Barnabas Church, Deavertown, Morgan Co., OH.
      BRIDGET'S NAME LISTED IN MORMON TEMPLE AS BRIGITTA. SOLOMONS FIRST NAME IS THOUGHT TO BE LEV, BUT VERY LITTLE DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE IT. THERE WERE A COUPLE OF OTHER NAMES OF LEV USED IN THE HISTORY OF THE FAMILY. MOST LIKELY NAME I CAN SEE IS LOUIS. HE HAD A SON NAMED LOUIS, HIS GRANDSON ALFRED WAS NAMED ALFRED LOUIS, ANOTHER GRANDSON VIA CAROLINE NAMED LOUIS EUTENEUER, ANOTHER GRANDSON VIA CHARLES NAMED LOUIS GOSSMAN.
      OBITUARY WAS SIMPLE: MORGAN COUNTY HERALD, 13 NOV 1895, DEAVERSTOWN NEWS. SOLOMAN GOSSMAN DIED AT HIS HOME NEAR HERE LAST TUESDAY, INTERMENT AT McLUNEY THURSDAY.
      MY GRANDFATHER LISTED DEATH AS 25 OCT, NOT 29 OCT.

      from the notes of Arnold Van Horn:
      "The 1880 Census for York Township, Morgan County, Ohio relates that Solamon and Bridget were living there with 5 of their children. The 1870 Census for the same area shows them there with 9 children."
