He was married to Elizabeth Susanna Goosen (nee ???) born March 3rd, 1915; died November 22, 1974. They had one daughter, the late Larry Goosen who was married to Henk Traut.

Hi! Thanks for a great site. It's really interesting seeing all these Goosens and yet here in Zimbabwe it's not such a common name. My family originate from South Africa and Bechuanaland. My dads name is Peter Clayton Goosen, my oupa's name is Peter Zacharias Goosen. Peter Zacharias was born at Lobatsi in Bechuanaland Protectorate (now Botswana) on 27th December 1911. His father, Rupert Goosen was a speculator who went to Bechuanaland from South Africa in the early 1900's and his mom's name was Eliza Johanna Goosen. I think her maiden name was Du Rand. They had seven children, Sam, Peter Zacharias, Rupert, Quinton, Frank, Chris, Ben and Anne. Most of these children ended up in either South Africa or Southern Rhodesia. Does anyone know any of them?

I was very much happy and surpriced to have met Retief Goosen last week in Madrid (during the Telefonica Open, which he won). We stayed at the hotel on the same floor. Since we are both an R.Goosen the hotel directed messeges ment for Retief to my room! I was happy to have shaking his hand specially since i have just started to take golf classes this summer. This has nothing to do with Retief but me liking the game. But I can not deny to read about the golf success of my fellow R.Goosen Cheers, Roeland Goosen

The descendants of Marinus GOOSEN in the Norway listing are also descendants of Jacob Pieterse GOOSSEN of Hoek and then Kruiningen, Zeeland, The Netherlands. I took the information from Mia Goosen of Norway, and did a little more research in Salt Lake City and found that her line ties right in with mine - the Jacob GOOSSEN one found here. I would like to know if some of the South African members of this web site can find their forebears in Holland? We probably all connect somewhere back in time.

Hi again Patrick, i'm still tracing various GOOSSEN families mainly from Goes and Kruiningen, Zeeland. i'm pretty sure I can tie the Norway GOOSEN (they dropped an S) into my Zeeland bunch with just a little more research. I've changed e-mail addresses since my earlier messaages. I can now be reached at: shgalitz@yahoo.com or wogalitz@earthlink.net. Keep up the good work!

Patrick, I remember you emailing me 6 or 7 years ago before you had this site. Great work! My brother Bob (Robert Kenneth Goosen) married in 1998, so hopefully the line of Goosens in Texas/Arkansas will continue. You need to add my grandfather to the family tree (he is 84 years old - lives here in Little Rock). His name is John Goosen (by birth Abraham Goosen). He had five children: Kenneth Goosen (my Dad), Clarence Goosen, J.T. (John) Goosen, Karen Goosen (now Karen O'Rear), and Carl Goosen. There are 9 grandkids, three of which were boys. Keep up the good work!

I stumbled across your site and was pleased to find so much information about the Goossen name. How can I learn more about my line? My father is Frederick Goossen born 11/25/1916. My paternal grandfather was Behrend Goossen. My paternal grandmother was Carrie Goossen. Behrend's father was also named Behrend. His mother was Fredricke The senior Behrend emigrated to the U.S. from Grapel, Hanover, Germany in approximately 1860. It is said that the Goossens, along with several other families, founded this small town after emigrating from Holland.

Anna Marie Goossen

Anna Marie Goossen (Goosen) came to the United States in the womb of her Mother, Teresa Peerlinks Goossen. Her Father was Corneilius Goossen and his Father Ivan Goossen of Belgium. The family settled in Mason County, MI. Corneilus had a sister Julia, and brother Ston that also came to this country. Not all of the siblings immigrated to America. It would be interesting to know if there are any Goossen cousins in Belgium. The name was spelled Goossen by Corneilius and changed to Goosen by his sons in the U. S. Anna Goossen age 86 born in 1913 (year family immigrated to America).
