Gooch & Hanks of Linn Co. MO

In June 2002 I purchased an old celluloid photo album on Ebay. No photos were inside, but I've transcribed the genealogy information that was in it. I will be happy to send the album to anyone who can prove their relationship to the Linn & Sullivan Co. MO surnames inside, (Hanks and Gooch), for the amount that I paid for it.

The little lad was taken ill Sunday night but seemed better Monday, and on Tuesday morning he was worse. He was brought to Bozeman by the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew J. Hanks, from their home on the Gooch ranch, and died a few moments after they arrived in town, before they could secure medical attention for him. An autopsy was held to learn the cause of death. The funeral services will be held at the Salesville church Thursday afternoon at two o'clock, with Rev. C. W. Worden officiating.
