If you go to, you can see a Michael GANNON, born Jan 8, 1871 to Michael and Annie Gannon (both from Ireland) in Rubicon, Huron county. You can also see a census record of that family with Michael';s 7 siblings. Also a record of a Micheal (Note spelling of first name) who passed away in Huron county and is buried in Rock Falls Cemetery. that record can be seen at You will want the blue section.
The only John and Margaret GOCHA's I could find, were in the 1900 census. John C. born Aug of 1838, margaret born September of 1839. Had some boarders with them, Martin, Nellie and Alonzo Anderson. Marg and John had been married 44 years. She had 11 kids, only three surviving at time of census.
If you go to the Ostego County Genweb, you will see the births of the following children to this couple: Charles Frank, Dennis, John B F, Oliver and Thomas S. You can find that index by using the Pico search engine and putting in the last name GOCHA.
If you put the name GOCHA in for "obituaries" (not the recent ones) You can see an obit for a John GOCHA who died at the age of 67 in 1904. No names mentioned as to survivors, but speaks of his wounds in the Civil War at Gettysburg. I do not know if this is "your" John. There seem to be a lot of John GOCHA's around, too.
There is a family in Huron County with a Charles and a Margaret GOCHA as head of family, but I did not take a close look st them. Let me know if you want that info. It may be your "John" using his middle name.
