Need Lookup, Charles Gossett & Family
Posted by: Paul A. Thorn (ID *****1174) Date: November 21, 2004 at 16:00:26

I'm looking for information about Charles Gossett, who died in Mobile, Alabama in 1949. He appears in the 1930 Census, with wife, Winifred Fontaine, and several children.

I think that this may be one of my uncles, because I had an uncle named Charles Gossett who lived at Mobile in the 1920s, although it is possible that there were two such men. I need to find out anything about his date of birth or parents, such as one might find in his death record or in a newspaper obituary (how many papers were there in the Mobile area at this time?). I'm pretty sure who his father was, but he must have been married two or possibly three times, and I only know about his last marriage.

Charles was also married at least twice. His wife was from Mississippi, and according to the census, that's where the eldest child in 1930 was also born, but this could be a mistake; Charles and Winifred may have been married in Mobile, about 1918 or 1919. That record also might name their parents.

If there were any papers relating to Charles' estate in 1949, they might name his other children, if any. With these, it may be possible to determine who they were and where they were born, as well as finding the name of Charles' other wife or wives, and thus at least one other marriage record that might name his parents.

Can anybody find some records relating to Charles Gossett in Mobile County?
