Goss, Joel Edward
I have been searching for my grandfather, Joel Edward Goss, every way I know how, but it appears he has literally "fallen off the face of this earth"!!. Joel Edward Goss, son of Joel Jasper and Emily Edney Masters Goss, was born in Polk County, GA on July 22, 1882. He married Sarah Goss Knight on Sept 28, 1902 in Polk County, GA; they had 8 children, all born in Polk County. Around 1926 or '28, he left Polk County with a female named Lillie Kinney and I have not been able to find anything since that date. I have researched at, have put messages on message boards, have e-mailed Gary Goss who seems to have the largest databases on Goss ancestry, talked with relatives in Polk County and other states, all to no avail. It was rumored that Joel Edward (Joe) left GA and either went to SC or NC. I have checked death records in both states, as well as GA, all to no avail. I just want to find out where Joe went, if he had another family after he left GA, and where his burial place is so that I and other family members can visit it. ANY help at all will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
