Can someone help. I have tried to find my great grandfather John Gotcher but not much luck. I know this.
1889 marriage, Collin county, TX to Milicent (Millie) Jane (GOSS)Bass
1900 Census: Collin county, TX found with wife and kids.
born Aug. 1866 in Georgia, 33 years old, father born in MS, Mother born in Arkansas. Wife born in Georgia in 1868. Kids - Sal 18, Mary (step-daughter)13, Bell 10, Frank J 9, Rosa (Mae) 7, Lora D 6, Tinnie 5. All born in Texas.
I know Millie's side of the family were baptists, several sat on boards and/or were ministers of churches and also helped to establish several of them since the 1700's, starting in North Carolina then South Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri and several in Texas. I just can't find anything about her husband, John.
Millie died in 1904 and the minor children are found living with their sister and her family in the 1910 census. I haven't found anything about his death. Mary, the oldest sister, married John Barnett and as of 1910 had two kids: Jewell 5 and John 1 10/12. They ran a bakery at least that is what the census said. That is all I know. Don't have any idea who his parents were, siblings or anything else.
