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.

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.

Vickie Goossens

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.
