Glass Remembered … Goshen Epilogue

Arthur Wood and his cousin Janice Mitchell have been carrying out research into Goshen.  Janice  has carried out the bulk of the research on the Smith side of the family. Goshen was their great-grandfather (in Arthur’s case maternal, in Janice’s case paternal). We are grateful to Arthur and Janice for allowing us to share some of the information they have discovered as shown below.  You can click on each of the cuttings for a larger version.

    I have just seen your post as it has been a while since I have looked at the family tree, as with everyone just now I have a bit of time on my hands and thought I would look up the Glass site. I am Janice Mitchell and my dad John Smith was the Goshens grandson by Annie McAdam. Ihave been up too the Fiddichside Inn with Arthur in 2016 an I am aware of its history.
    Maybe Arthur has been in touch with you as he put most of the family tree together in charts.

    Kind Regards
