Thomas Goswick was son of George Goswick of Franklin Co.N.C. and grandson of Joseph and Sarah (?) Goswick of Franklin Co.N.C. and Baltimore Co. Maryland..  Many of the descendants of Joseph & Sarah (?) Goswick are found as "Gossett" today (1998).  Thomas and Elizabeth Goswick both died on the same day and are buried in the same grave.  Elizabeth had been sick for some time, and on the day she died, then Thomas died also.  There is also the possibility that both were killed during Sherman's march through Georgia.  Thomas and Elizabeth had already lost two son's to this war, Aaron and Nathan Goswick, and possibly James as he has not been found to date, unless he is going by the surname of Gossett. Thomas Goswick is mentioned in his father' George Goswick's Will 1812.
