Goss Family History
Descendants of Philip Goss of Lancaster Massachusetts 1650 (family History Library, BYU) htttp://contentdm.lib.byuedu/u?FH25,51493A Biographical Search of the Goss Family from Philip Goss through Elbert Garrett Goss Jr. Compiled by E. Garrett Goss Ninth Generation from Philip Goss BYU 2005 http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/cdm4/document.php?CISOROOT=/FH25&CISOPTR=34533&REC=2 (Interesting material at the start)
DNA AnalysisA National Geographic's "Genographic Project" study of my Y chromosome, which has passed from father to son since the beginning of our species, shows that the male Goss line carries the M170 marker (Haplogroup I), one of several minor genetic mutations used to track various migrating populations. This marker which is common to Europeans originated with the so-called "Eurasian Adam" who lived in the region of modern-day Sudan and Ethiopia as far back as 79,000 years ago and carried the M168 marker. This marker is carried by every non-African person alive today. From there the line moved north to the Arabian peninsula and fanned out across the rest of the world. The M89 marker (Haplogroup F) appeared in the Middle East some 45,000 years ago which spawned lines in Europe, Asia, and India. 90 to 95 percent of all non-African races (essentially all but Australian aborigines, some Asia-Pacific lines, and one line of Native Americans) carry the M89 marker. It is some 20,000 years ago (a good 800 generations back) that the M170 marker appears in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) and the Balkans before spreading into southeastern and central Europe.

Abraham Goss: Notes
Soldier : Revolutionary War Born: Luzerne, Wyoming Valley, PA *** From Clearfield County Genealogy - Goss Family Folder - Biography of Goss After the Revolutionary War, Abraham Goss, Elizabeth (Emenhiser) Goss and his mother Elizabeth Goss, made their way to Stumptown (now a suburb of Osceola Mills) it is believed in the year 1797. There they cleared aany acres and turned the wilds into one of the finest farms in the county. Abe and Elizabeth had thirteen children, although the mother and child were both lost at the birth of the thirteenth child. Of the remaining twelve children all were married and had large families of their own. The Goss' were a very prolific family because of this many Clearfield County researchers find themselves researching this family in one way or another. There are today living in Clearfield County literally thousands of descendants of Abe and Elizabeth Goss. *** A NATIONAL REGISTER OF THE SOCIETY SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION PRINCIPAL EVENTS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.

The original copy of the document is at the Philipsburg Historical Foundation.
“Abraham Goss, the founder of the Goss Settlement, started to build his cabin on the 24th of October, 1798 and in the fall of 1799 he built a house. Mr. Goss was a Revolutionary soldier: he took care of George Washington’s horse and rode it many a time. His sons were David, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, George and John. He is buried in the Crain Cemetery between Philipsburg and Osceola Mills.
“His son David was the father of A. E. Goss, of North Third Street, father of Harry Goss. He built a log house sixteen feet square, and one and one half stories high. There was no stairway inside, but a ladder outside reached the upper floor. For lights they sometimes plaited flannel, lighted one end and placed the other end in a saucer of grease. They also used pine fagots stuck in the stone fireplace. Besides these lights, they burned so many candles that Mr. Goss says his father ordered George Seabright to dip him a thousand at one time.
Besides the family of thirteen, they kept three girls all the time; one did nothing but sew and the other two did the cooking. They also kept the farm hands, all in the little house sixteen feet square. Trundle beds were used in those days. “In this house was a large stone chimney, they burned hickory or oak lo gs, four or five feet long. If they were all going to be away over Sunday, they would heat the log red hot, then cover with ashes. It would keep hot sometimes three or four days. If it should die out they would have to go to the neighbors for a light.”
*** Listed in the Cemeteries of Clearfield County in the Goss Cemetery is Abraham and shows that he died on April 14, 1847 at age 88 years. There is a second stone at foot of grave that shows 85 years. At death. A soldier of '76. ***
