According to the death records for Callahan County, book 5, page 50, Joseph S. Gossett was born April 10, 1866, in Arkansas and died May 25, 1948. The informant was W. H. Harris and he didn't know about his parents. The Cross Plains Review was bound before they were microfilmed and the part of the articles next to the fold are not readable.

Virgie M. Gossett married E. E. Ensor August 20, 1905 (Callahan County Marriage records book 2-A, page 230). I am sure that they are also buried in the Cross Plains Cemetery, on the cemetery's website there is a listing for Ele E. Enson and Vergie M. Enson. I am sure that is them, just a typo.
