Madison County, NY Biographies





Gostling, George & Edward, p. o. Morrisville. William Gostling came to this country from Norfolk, England, in 1867, and brought with him three Sons and two daughters. The family first settled in Pratt's Hollow, but at the end of the year Mr. Gostling bought a forty acre farm west of Morrisville, on which he afterward lived and died. In England he had been an extensive farmer, managing 900 acres of land, and he was well on in years when he came to the United States. He died in 1878, aged eighty four years, and his wife in 1883. The children in this family were John, who lives in Fenner; Maria, who married R. T. Jones; Susanna, widow of Alva Cole; Mary, who married Charles T. Bicknell; and George and Edward Gostling, both of Eaton and among that town's most industrious and thrifty farmers. Their present farm was purchased about 1881, and is well located at Williams' Corners. It contains 140 acres.
