Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for John A GOUTY

Residences & events:

7/16/1860 Ross Twp, Vermilion Co, IL. At census time the couple lived with John Holmes. Sarah's little brother, William, also lived there. Listed as JA, he was 29 years old, a farmer whose property was valued at $690/400. Sarah was 26 and they had son HI, 5, and daughter, NE, 2. Next door were Sarah's cousins "Alancing" and Sarah Cronkhite.

8/1/1870 Roscoe Twp, St Clair Co, MO. On the westward move, the census taker found the family living between Sarah's brother William and cousin Frank Gott. John was 40 years old, a teamster without property. Sarah was 30 and they had 3 children: Henry, 15, Ellen, 12, and Mary, 9.

6/16/1880 South Haven Twp, Sumner Co, KS. That year John A Goudy, 47, and son Henry, 25, were boarders with the family of Otto Hayden. In the same area was the family of Sarah's cousins Frank and Elizabeth Gott.

6/13/1900 Rose Hill, Logan Co, OK. Having moved again, he was 72 years old and lived alone. Next door was daughter Ellen and Solomon Pearson.

The 1870 census says he was born in MO but since he was married in IL, that is unlikely.
