  • Notes 
    • AKA: Gerhard Hofer
    • Gerhard Goosen was born July 23, 1833 in South Russia. He married Agatha Peters born Dec 17, 1841. They left Hierschau, South Russia in 1873 for American and setled in the Marion-Freeman community with their family. Their family consisted of the following children: John Goosen, SR. ; Frank Goosen; Agatha Goosen Boese; Gerhard Goosen; Aaron Goosen; Peter Goosen; Katie Goosen Bonin and Abram Goosen. Gerhard Goosen, better known as George, was the fourth son of Gerhard and Agatha Peters Goosen. He was born April 3, 1868 and at the age of five he immigrated to American in 1873 with his parents and settled in the Marion Freeman community. He married Gertrude Plett. They had 12 children and adopted one niece when her mother died of the 1918 flu. The rest talks about their kids, but not your g/g grandfather.

      In another part of the book it says that Agatha Peters had a sister Katherine Peters that married Tobias Kunkel. Katherine born 11/02/1847. They lived in Marion and had nine children. There was an Elizabeth Peters, but I have no way of knowing if that was another sister.

      Katherine Peters I meantioned I found online as her DOB 11-2-1847, Death 4-9-1911 in the Boese family history. Her parents were Johann Aron T Peters 1809 to 1889 and mother Margareta Loewen 1814 to 1888. There were lots of children listed including Agatha.
