There has been so much written in the old records by past researchers, and so much of the information on the same persons read differently, so all this can be taken with a grain of salt, but is listed for those who would like to continue research on the Gostwicks of Baltimore Co. Md..

The descendants of John Y. Gostwick has never been found and they may go by the surname of Gossett.
