Somewhere in our family odds and ends, there is a brief geneology written in the mid 1920's by a Gossard in Canada. He had done the research. I merely noted that if what he contended was accurate that I could track the Conneticut connection through the geneology section in the public library. The only soldier in the revolutionay way with the name Gossard spelled the name Gosard. I rest my case and suggest that any accurate documents in Conneticut would probably use the single 's' spelling. My branch of the Gossard family came from the Ainsworth (& Wayne) Nebraska area, (My grandfather, Joseph LeRoy Gossard spent most of his life in rural Minnesota on a farm between Kasson and Dodge Center) 'Roy died in 1956. His wife was Mary Lee Gossett ('72). Their children: Carlyle ('92), Harold ('48), Reuben ('28), Pauline, Virginia, and Robert. My father was Harold. I might be able to find the report from the 1920's if you would like it. Thanks for your response. doug
