My great grandfather was Peter Goosen, born in 1883 or 1884 in South Dakota, married 11-24-07 to Mary D. Unruh in Turner County, South Dakota, USA. He lived in McCook County, South Dakota, USA. Census records placed Peter and Mary Goosen in Dawson County Montana as early as 1920. I am unable to determine his parents or siblings. The census records state his parents were from Russia and dutch was the language spoken in the home. I know they were also Mennonites. Any links or information would be greatly appreciated. Peter and Mary's son, Walter Eugene Gossen was my grandfather. Yes the Goosen somehow switched to Gossen over the years.
our goosen family immigrated to russia in the 1800's and opened the dutch russian thread factory in moscow.it was very successful until the bolshivik uprising. the whole entire clan managed to flee russia 1/3 went to south africa 1/3 to the us and the rest to saskatchewan canada.when we have a family reunion there is well over 1000 people at any given time
To anybody reading this. I'm not to sure were my part of the family came from, but we are probably a very small branch of the Goosen Family Tree. If anybody know a Christo Theodore Goosen (My Grandfather), born SA, could you please contact me. I'm trying to trace any relatives. Thank You Theo Goosen
I was just browsing the web about my last name and came about your website. I saw your link on Claus Goosen who is my great, great grandfather. I found most of your information interesting but there were a few errors. Marie Goosen did not die at the age of 43 and her husband's name was Harold Kriesler. They both passed away about four years ago in their late 70's. I just thought I would mention it.

I am not a Goosen, but just recently found information on my birth mother who grew up in St. Johnsteen and was married to Marinus Doggen. My mother's name was Erma (Irma) Rottier. By the way, where is St. Johnsteen located? Bob Mynsberge (Mynsberge is my adopted name, my birth name is Doggen)
my grandfather was Frederikus Goossen and im looking for an original coat of arms.Its got seahorses and clovers in the sheild .I think the one i have has been changed as it has been copied and has lost alot of detail.If you have seen anything like this please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
My great great grandfather was named Victor Goossens. He came to the U.S. around 1880. I believe that he had a brother named Hector, Emile, and a sister named Clara. He was married to a lady names Florentine Frere. Victor was born around 1831 in Belguim. Florentine was born Oct 1, 1826 in Jumet Belguim. They originally settled in Hartford, Indiana. Could this be the same Victor Goossens that is in your family? Maybe we are related.
M'n complimenten voor de prachtig vernieuwde site. Het ziet er fraai uit en alles werkt prima. Ik kan je eventueel een vernieuwde kwartierstaat of parenteel sturen van mijn gegevens. De gegevens op jouw site zijn al enige jaren oud en zijn inmiddels uiteraard aangevuld en verbeterd. Mijn gegevens staan bij jouw onder Willem Goosen. groeten gerrit
