28. Philadelphia Historical Commission Registration No. 15, www.weichertmccarthy.com/gorgas.html, Joseph Gorgas, the builder of the house, was a lumber merchant and a thrid generation son of a prominent early settler clan in Germantown. He was born on April 24, 1773, in Germantown, and died in this house on May 8, 1850, in his 78th year.In the month of June, 1799, Joseph acquired two properties in Germantown in addition to land inherited from his father, JOHN GORGAS II.1. On June 7, he purchased from his sister, SUSANNAH GORGAS, spinster, a house and lot of one acre and two perches at the northeast corner of Germantown Main Street and the Lane to Bristol Township (now Gorgas Lane). The house is assumed to have been the rear wing of the present structure. The purchase price was 250 pounds.2. On June 25, he also bought two acres from Anthony Johnson, Yeoman. Presumably, this land was adjacent to the property above. It is judged by all sources, including the Philadelphia Historical Commission, that he began building this house during the latter half of the year 1798. After the death of Joseph Gorgas, this house was sold by the heirs to Geroge Ashmead, Germantown Druggist, for the sum of $7,100..
