Jesse Gosnell

Birthabt 17893
DeathDEC 18463
( place questionable )
Aged: 57.9 years
Census 1850 - 1870

parents: Rootsweb:Lawhon
marriage: I only see 9 Oct 1812 at First Mechodist Episcopal Church, Balto, Md. I had an earlier date of 1811 but don't find that now. Shirk had that date and ancestry.com still has it, FS has apparently removed it.

Birth 1798 date may have come from Shirk: Descendants of Richard & Elizabeth (Ewen) Talbott  which has many other errors (see below.) I see a DoB of 1798 in several places and have not confirmed 1789. 1798 could be a permutation typo of 1789. With a marriage date of 1812, a dob of 1798 seems a stretch. No record on FS is a fit. I am showing a date found at FSG.

War or 1812:  A Jesse Gosnell was a Captain in 7th Regiment (Appointed 27 Apr 1813) and stationed in Baltimore County. The British Invasion of Maryland, 1812-1815 - William Matthew Marine, Louis Henry Dielman - Google Books

Ref: Our Folks: The Gosnell Family Ancestors Newsletter of which I have only a couple pages.

Rootsweb: wjohn shows children Naomi, George O, Quincy, Ann R., and Elizabeth
FamilySearch: Bachman shows children Tevis, Naomi, George W, John W, Ann Rebecca, Quincey Adams, and Jesse

Death: Internment not confirmed. Mt Olivet does not show any Gosnell buriels before 1857 which is for a McKenzie child. That child is in M,077,N/2,#7, BUT that was a move from an earlier site. That earlier site is also where Rebecca Gosnell is buried. Though it looks specific, the DoD should be considered suspect.

My family kept calling this person Mary Rebecca Stocksdale, but I now think they had her confused with Mary E. Stocksdale, the second daughter of Thomas Evans Stocksdale and Eliza Orndorff.

1870 lives with Evan and Naomi McKensie. Also Quincy.
