      from the notes of Kent M. Gossman:
      Worked on father Solomon's farm and operated sawmills near Crooksville, OH and in Kentucky. Moved to Nebraska shortly after marriage 4 April 1893. Farmed 8 miles northwest of Columbus, NE in Shell Creek Township and lived there until he died. CAME TO NEBRASKA PROBABLY SINCE HE HAD OLDER SISTER CAROLINE WHO MOVED TO SAME AREA, AS WELL AS YOUNGER BROTHER CHARLES. Was Justice of the Peace for Shell Creek Twp. and served on the school District 4 board. He died in a Columbus hospital. Had been ill as the result of a stroke suffered about four years before his death. After his death, his wife moved to Buffalo Center, Iowa to be near sons Leo and Earl. She had his remains moved to the Buffalo Center Cemetary so he could be buried with her. HE WAS INITIALLY BURIED IN ROSLAWN CEMETERY IN COLUMBUS, NE, AND WAS NOT BURIED NEAR HIS DAUGHTERS IN ST. PATRICKS/JOSEPHS.
      MY GRANDPA SAID HE WAS BORN IN 1864, NOT 1863. MIDDLE INITIAL FROM TOMBSTONE.
