Charles H. Gossman – Early Pioneer Tales — 7 Comments

  1. Wow, thanks for sharing this! Charles Gossman was my great-great grandfather and I don’t think anyone in my family has ever seen this article.

    • Charles was my great-grandfather as well. I was aware of some of these accounts through general family discussion but never realized he had written an article. This is fascinating to me. I have been meaning to go to review the audio interviews taken by Jean Taylor in the 60s I believe when she wrote a book on the area. I know there exists taped interviews with Jesse as well as his brothers. I am the great grandson of Jesse and the grandson of Charles. Thank you for your posting.

  2. Charles Gossman was my great grandfather; Jesse and Minnie Aman Gossman my maternal grandparents. So loved reading this! Visited that home as a child. Thank you!

  3. I found this so interesting. Henry Gossman was my grandfather and my father Frank Gossman would tell me about living in Silver Palm as a young boy. I have the actual homestead certificate with the signature of Theodore Roosevelt, president of the U.S. on it. My grandmother, Ellen Gossman, lived in Miami when I was a little boy; she would talk about life in Silver Palm back in the day. I found it so interesting. Thank you Jeff for this article.
