This is the Richard Gossett that married Hannah E. (Thomas) Watts.  Their son James Thomas Gossett married  Mary S. Gaston.  The info listed below was supplied by James O. Sanders of Hawaii who descends from James and Mary S.(Gaston) Gossett.  There are too many children listed for this Richard and Hannah (Thomas)Watts, Gossett.  I think that some of the children that Jason Gossett had sent to James O. Sanders probably belonged to the Richard Gossett of Floyd Co.Ga. that married Jan 27,1847 Harritt Holt.  Census films need to be checked for this Richard & Harriett (Holt) Gossett.

*********************
There are 21 entries or Pages that I have re-typed for the sake of space
and have not changed any wording or spelling so as not to alter the meaning
or the flavor of the times.

You see, in 1907, there were 7 children that were enrolled with her, but I
have 8 children listed.  There was either another one born later or I am in
error by having one too many names.  I got the names from yet another
Indian application, that being the Chapman Roll.

Yes, I have just been ADMITTED to the CHEROKEE NATION via my grt grt
grandparents being on the DAWES ROLL.  They were ISAAC H MAYFIELD AND MARY
M HILDEBRAND MAYFIELD.  They were 1/16th & 1/4 CHEROKEE, respectively.

My ancestors were like this:  my grandfather, DOCK GASTON, his mother,
NANCY E  MAYFIELD, her mother, MARY M HILDEBRAND (& father,ISAAC H
