Obituary of Chauncey F. Gohn

In 1738 Philip Gohn and his family immigrated from Rimschweiler-Zweibrucken, Palatinate, Germany to Pennsylvania on the ship The Thistle. They settled in York County, Pennsylvania. Phillip's great-great-grandson, John P. Gohn (1806 - 1888) and his wife Lydia Mosholder (1811 - 1889) moved to Lagrange County, Indiana, in May of 1844. They then moved to Elkhart County and finally back to Lagrange County by 1870. Their daughter, Isabelle Gohn (1833 - 1924), married James Frymier (abt. 1830 - abt. 1865). Isabelle's daughter, Elizabeth Rosette Frymire (1858 - 1907), married James Robert Wilson (1852 - 1915). Their daughter, Tressa Ethel (1886 - 1931), married Floyd M. Grasz (1886 - 1979) of Nappanee, Indiana. Their daughter, Miriam Grasz (1918 -), married Howard Allen Field (1911 - 1989). In 1945 Howard and Miriam moved to Turlock, Califronia. Miriam now resides in Selma, Calfornia.
