(Note: The Gouty name is spelled with the following variations in historical records Gouty, Gowty, Gootee, Gottee, Goutee, and Goutty. The name will be spelled Gouty in this writing except when reference is made to an historical record, in which case it will be spelled as in the original document.)


Pritchett Gouty was born July 4, 1765, in Maryland.(1) Pritchett was a son of John Gouty and Elizabeth Pritchett.(2) John Gouty was born in 1738 in Dorchester County, Maryland.(3) John married Elizabeth Pritchett on November 17, 1769.(4) He died August 4, 1818.(5)Gouty Tree - Jason N. Gouty) Elizabeth Pritchett was the daughter of Phunback Pritchett and his wife, name unknown.(6) The will of Phunback Pritchett names Elizabeth Gouty as one of his daughters.(7)
Pritchett Gouty married Mary Griffith, a daughter of Alexander Griffith and his wife.
(8) Mary Griffith was born about 1765 in Caroline County, Maryland.(9) No marriage record with date of marriage has been found. Alexander Griffith and his wife, Elizabeth (Unknown), were the parents of 12 children, including Mary Griffith.(10)(will of AG) The wife of Alexander Griffith is not known other than the name of his wife at the time of his death was Mary.
A sister of Mary Griffith, Nancy Griffith, married William Todd on June 2, 1798, in Caroline County, Maryland.
(11)(6B) A brother of Mary Griffith, Aaron Griffith, married Nancy Ann Collison on January 4, 1802, in Caroline County, Maryland.(12)(6C)
An Alexander Griffith owned land in Caroline County, Maryland.
(13)(7) He was born about 1745 in Maryland and died between August 11, 1810, when his will was written, and March 5, 1811, when his will was probated in Caroline County, Maryland.(14)(8) The 1800 Caroline County, Maryland census record for Alexander Griffith listed the following: Census-1800 Caroline County, Maryland, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-26 and 1 male over 45: 1 female 16-26 and 1 female over 45.(15)UT) (6B) An Alexander Griffith was a witness to the will of John Stanton of Caroline County, Maryland, on January 6, 1818, and may have been the brother of Mary Griffith.(16)(9ABC)
The 1790 Maryland census records list two families named Gouty, both in Caroline County. Those two families are the ones of Able Gouty and John Gouty. The census images for those two families are not available so the detail is unknown.
(17)(3) It is likely other records, particularly from Dorchester County, existed for other members of the Gouty family. Perhaps these records have been lost or for some reason other Gouty or Gootee families were not recorded. The Able (or Abel) Gouty of the 1790 Caroline County, Maryland, census was the second child and oldest son of John and Elizabeth (Pritchett) Gouty.(18)
In the 1800 US Census for Maryland, the only Gouty names that appear in Caroline County are: Abel, John, Zachariah, and Prichard (i.e., Pritchett).
(19) Abel, Zachariah, and Pritchett Gouty were three sons of John Gouty and Elizabeth Pritchett Gouty.(20)UYT)
Pritchett Goutee is listed at age 26 through 44 in the 1810 census.
(21) If he was born in 1765 as some records indicate, he would have been about 35 years old at the time of the 1800 census.(22)(10) The Pritchett Gouty family in the 1800 census consisted of one male under 10 years of age, possibly a son named John Gouty who may have been born that year.(23)(11) Also listed are a son age 10 through 15 whose name is unknown. One male listed as age 26 through 44 should have been Pritchett Gouty. One female is listed as under age 10 and perhaps this was Elizabeth Gouty who was born December 15, 1796, in Caroline County, Maryland according to a record in the Family History Library.(24) Also listed is a female age 26 through 44 and this should have been Mary Griffith Gouty, wife of Pritchett.
In the 1810 US Census for Maryland, the only Gouty names that appear in Caroline County are: Gabril, Thomas, Zachariah, and a P Gouty which we can assume is Pritchett Gouty.
(25) The only information we found about Gabriel Gouty was that he married a Nancy Griffith on January 2, 1798, in Dorchester County, Maryland.(26) Gabril Gouty is somewhat of an unknown. He married a Nancy Griffith, possibly related to Mary Griffith, in January 1798.(27) Perhaps Gabriel Gootee lived in the same neighborhood as the family of John Gootee.
The Thomas Gouty of the 1810 Maryland, Caroline County, census was not the same Thomas Gouty as the one who was a son of Pritchett Gouty and Mary Griffith. The Thomas Gouty of the 1810 Maryland, Caroline County, census was listed as age 16 through 25 and he lived with three females. One female was under 10 years of age, one was age 26 through 44, and one was 45 and over.
(28)
The Pritchett Gouty family in 1810 consisted of 2 males under age 10. These two males should have been Henry Gouty who was born about 1800 and Thomas Gouty who was born about 1802. One male age 10 through 15 may have been John Gouty who was born about 1800. The one female under 10 might have been a Delilah Gouty. Elizabeth Gouty probably was age 10 through 15 in 1810. The female aged 16 through 25 is unknown and the female aged 26 through 44 should have been Mary Griffith Gouty.
(29)
An evaluation of Federal census records and other data, such as marriage records, show that Pritchett Gouty and his children moved from Caroline County, Maryland, to Pickaway County, Ohio, sometime after 1810. Pickaway County was created in 1810 from portions of Ross, Fairfield, Hocking, and Franklin Counties. Other neighboring counties are Fayette and Madison. Circleville is the county seat. Pickaway is a Native American word meaning "man risen from ashes."

GOWTY, Henry to WHITSELL, Rebecca on Oct 22, 1823
GOWTY, Pritchard to DONOVAN, Mary on Jan 30, 1817, by John Scott, J.P.
GOWTY, John to EARHART, Elizabeth on Oct 16, 1822
LOWLY, Elizabeth to Cheesman, Samuel on Jan 14, 1818

Mary Griffith Gouty, the first wife of Pritchett Gouty, died sometime before January 30, 1817, when Pritchett Gouty (i.e., Prichard Gowty) married Mary Donovan in Pickaway County, Ohio.
(31) They were married by John Scott, J.P. Two sons of Prittchet and Mary Griffith Gouty also married in Pickaway County, Ohio, as did one daughter. Henry Gouty (i.e., Gowty) married Rebecca Whitsell on October 22, 1823.(32) John Gouty (i.e., Gowty) married Elizabeth Earhart on October 16, 1822.(33) Elizabeth Gowty (i.e., Lowly) married Samuel Cheesman on January 14, 1818, in Pickaway County, Ohio.(34)

Mary Donovan was born after 1775 in Delaware.
(35) Her parents are not known. The 1820 US Census for Pickaway Township, Pickaway County, Ohio, lists the Pritchett Gouty family (spelled Prechet Goutty in the census records).(36)

The Pritchett Gouty family consisted of the following:
1) one male under age 10 - this should be Zachariah Gouty, born 1815 to 1817
2) one male age 10 and under 16 - perhaps Thomas Gouty
3) two males age 16 and under 26 - perhaps John and Henry Gouty
4) one male 45 and upwards - Pritchett Gouty
5) two females under age 2 - unknown

6) one female age 26 and under 45 - Mary Donovan Gouty

According to the booklet, Gessie, Indiana, The First One Hundred Years 1872-1972, "The Gouty family came from France (name originally Goutier) to Dorcester County, Maryland, in 1670. Prichard Gouty was born July 4, 1766 and died May 12, 1837. He is buried in a cemetery near the Squire Shute farm. Pritchard's three sons, Henry, Thomas, and Zechariah came to Indiana in 1820. Henry to Parke County and Thomas to Vermillion County. Zechariah brought their father here in 1830. There was a fourth brother John but he settled near Rossville, Illinois. Henry had 9 children but all died young and he left no descendants. Zechariah moved to Iowa. Thomas Gouty was married 3 times and had children by all three. His first wife was Nancy Carr, his second wife was Elizabeth Stutler and his 3rd wife was Catherine Hoobler. Everyone called her Aunt Katie. She was a charter member of the Gessie United Brethren Church. Thomas was the great grandfather of Dale Gouty. Elias Gouty (son of Thomas) was Dale's grandfather. Lewis was Dale's father. Dale lives in the homeplace."
(37)
In History of Vermillion County, Indiana, Biographical Sketches we find the following: "Thomas Gouty settled in Vermillion County in 1833 or earlier. He died June 10, 1863, aged sixty-one years. Elias, his son, was born here in 1833. Henry Gouty may have settled in this township a year or two later, he died in 1864, and his wife, Rebecca, died in 1874, at the age of seventy-five years."

Pritchett Gouty and Mary Griffith Gouty were the parents of at least six children that we can document and perhaps several others:
1. Elizabeth Gouty, born December 15, 1796, in Caroline County, MD, married Samuel Chezem January 14, 1818, in Circleville, Pickaway County, OH.(38) She
died May 29, 1859, in Parke County, IN.
(39)
2. John Gouty, born in Caroline County, MD, March 31, 1800, and died January
24, 1879; buried in Rossville, IL, Mann's Chapel Cemetery, Rossville, Vermilion
County, IL. He married at least two times.

3. Henry Gouty, born about 1802 in Caroline County, MD, and died October 14,
1858, in Highland Township, Vermillion County, IN.

4. Thomas Gouty, born about 1801 in Caroline County, MD, died June 10, 1863, in
Highland Township, Vermillion County, IN. He married three times. He is
buried with his third wife at Hicks Cemetery in Perrysville, IN.
5. Zachariah Gouty, born about 1815 in Pickaway County, OH.
6. Delilah Gouty, born in Pickaway County, OH, about 181?, married William
Cossey. She died in Highland Township, Vermillion County, IN, about 1840.

Perhaps other children, including a
Mary (Polly) Ann Gouty. Perhaps a James Gouty born about 1823 in Pickaway County, Ohio. The Talbert Family Tree on Ancestry.com states that Nancy Kerr died March 31, 1840. It lists her year of birth as 1804. It lists the children of Pritchett Gouty and Mary Griffith as: Jane, Rachel, Polly born in 1789, Elizabeth born in 1798, John born April 1, 1800, Henry born in 1802, James born in 1804, Thomas born in 1806, and Zachariah born in 1815. Pritchett born July 4, 1765 and died May 12, 1837. Mary Griffith born 1774 and died January 30, 1817. (40) "Marriage
We were able to trace the Pritchett Gouty family from Caroline County, Maryland, to Pickaway County, Ohio. We will now review the move of the Pritchett Gouty family to Indiana. We can do this by reviewing data about the individual children of Pritchett Gouty.
Sometime after 1820, Pritchett Gouty, his wife, and their married children headed to Parke and Vermillion counties in Indiana. A summary of the Pritchett Gouty family movement and what is known about each of Pritchett Gouty's children and their spouses will be presented to trace the families from Pickaway County, Ohio, to Vermillion and Parke Counties in Indiana.
The will of John Gouty(Gowty), father of Pritchett Gouty, reveals much valuable information about the brothers and sisters of Pritchett, as well as identifying Pritchett as the son of John Gouty. It also helps point out the significance of the name Zachariah as one that would be used to name other Gouty family children.

"Laws of Maryland, Nov. Sess. 1812, page 192, "to sell the said lands for
the use and benefit of the said orphan children of Zachariah Gouty." "4. AND BE
IT ENACTED, That nothing in this act contained shall be construed to defeat any
just claim that may be against the said Zachariah Gouty, nor in any wise to
deprive the widow of the said deceased, of her right of dower.
"to appoint a trustee and order the sale of all the right, title, interest and
estate of the said James Gouty, Mary Gouty, Lucretia Gouty and John Stevens
Gouty, minors and orphan children of the aforesaid Zachariah Gouty, deceased,
in and unto the aforesaid tract of land"
"called Church Grove, containing seventy three acres, and that the same is
unoccupied and very poor, and that it will in a very short time become entirely
useless to the heirs, and prays that a law may pass authorising the orphans' court
of Caroline county to appoint a trustee to sell the said lands for the use and
benefit of the said orphan children of Zachariah Gouty"

James Gouty, son of Zachariah Gouty and Lucretia Andrews. Zachariah died in 1812. James was born in February 1807 in Maryland according to One World Tree. He died in 1850. He is listed in the 1830 Ohio, Pickaway County, Williamsport Township census as age 20 to 30 and living with a female age 10 to 15.
(41) Perhaps William Cook was the father of Ketterah Cook. William Cook is on same census page in 1820 as Pritchett Gouty. Also a Jesse Cook and a Marke Cook.
A Mary Gouty as well as a James Gouty are listed in the
1830 Pickaway County, Ohio, census. Mary Gouty is listed as age 40 and under 50. One male in the household is listed as age 30 and under 40. James Gouty married Keturah Cook on July 20, 1830, in Pickaway County, Ohio.(42)
Land tract acquisitions by the members of the Pritchett Gouty family is an easy way to trace their movement to Indiana. See
APPENDIX FIVE for a listing of all the land tracts acquired by members or in-laws of the Pritchett Gouty family in Indiana. One characteristic these families had was to name their children by using as their first name the maiden name of the wife, i.e; Price Chezem; Pritchett Gouty.
Pritchett Gouty and Mary Griffith Gouty were the parents of at least six children that we can document and perhaps several others:

1. Elizabeth Gouty appears to be the oldest child of Pritchett and Mary Griffith Gouty. She was born December 15, 1796, in Caroline County, Maryland.(YTR) She died May 29, 1859, in Parke County, Indiana.(43) Elizabeth married Samuel Chezem on January 14, 1818, in Circleville, Pickaway County, Ohio.(44) Elizabeth Gouty died May 29, 1859, in Parke County, Indiana. She married Samuel Chezem (aka Cheesman) on January 14, 1818, in Circleville, Pickaway County, Ohio. She is buried in the Montezuma Cemetery in Parke County, Indiana.(#* David R. Cheesman, Marriage Records of Pickaway County, Ohio, 1810-1862]
Samuel Chezem was the son of John Chezem and Melvina Price. He was born January 3, 1795, in Caroline County, Maryland. He died June 1, 1857, in Parke County, Indiana, and is buried in the Montezuma Cemetery, Parke County, Indiana.(17C) (17C) Family History Library, Submitter Nancy E. Davidson. John and Melvina Price Chezem were the parents of Samuel, Price, and William Chezem. Price Chezem was born September 14, 1801 and William Chezem was born in 1804.

James Chezem, a brother of Samuel, was born December 23, 1799, in Maryland and was a son of John Chezem. James Chezem married Mary Mitchell on November 20, 1819, in Pickaway, Circleville, Ohio.(45) Family History Library, submitter Janet Jones.
James Chezem died June 23, 1848, and was buried in West Union Cemetery, Parke County, Indiana.
(46) Family History Library, submitter Janet Jones.

Price Chezem, also a brother of Samuel Chezem, was born September 14, 1801, a son of John Chezem.(47)

In 1824 all Parke County, Indiana, land west of the Wabash River was ceded to Vermillion County, Indiana.(48)

The 1830 Vermillion County, Indiana, census lists Samuel Cheeseman, age 20 to 30, and what we can assume to be his wife as age 20 to 30. Boys are two under 5 years old, one girl under 5, two girls 5 to 10, and one girl 10 to 15.
The 1830 Parke County, Indiana, census lists a Price Chezem as age 20 to 30, what we can assume to be his wife as age 20 to 30, one boy under age 5, one boy age 5 to 10, one girl under age 5, and one girl age 5 to 10.
The 1840 Parke County, Indiana, census lists Samuel Chezman as age 40 to 50, what we can assume is the wife of Samuel Chezman is 40 to 50, one boy age 5 to 10, one boy age 10 to 15, one boy age 15 to 20, two girls under age 5, two girls age 5 to 10, 2 girls age 15 to 20, one girl age 20 to 30.
The 1850 Parke County, Indiana, census, enumerated on September 28, 1850, lists Samuel and Elizabeth Cheezum in District 85. Samuel Cheezum is listed as age 54 and born in North Carolina and Elizabeth is listed as born in Maryland and her age is given as 53.
(17D) Also listed are Lydia age 26, Jane age 19, Samuel age 17, Dil? age 14, Delila age 13, and Milo age 9. All the children are listed as born in Indiana which means the family was in Indiana by 1824 approximately.
The 1850 Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana, census lists Price Chesem as age 52 and born in North Carolina, and he cannot read or write. Also listed in the Price Chesem household are George age 19 who was born in Indiana and Mary age 12 who was born in Indiana.
John Chezem, the father of Samuel Chezem, was born in 1760 in Baltimore, Ann Arundel, Maryland and died October 21, 1850, in Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana.
(49) The 1850 Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana, census, enumerated October 21, 1850, list John Chisem, age 90, born in Maryland, Comfort Chisem, age 55, born in Maryland, Jean Chisem age 14, born in Indiana, and Margaret E. Chisem age 8 and born in Indiana. Neither John nor Comfort Chisem could read or write.(50) Family History Library, submitter Janet Jones. Since John Chezem, the father of Price and Samuel Chezem was born in Maryland, it seems probably that Price and Samuel also were born in Maryland. He appears in the 1850 Vermillion County, Highland, Indiana, census.(51)
Elizabeth (Gouty) Chezem died May 29, 1859 in Parke County, Indiana.(52) Name:  Samuel Chezem , Birth:  3 Jan 1795 - Maryland, USA, Death: 1 Jun 1857 - Parke, Indiana, USA, Marriage: 14 Jan 1818 - Circleville, Pickaway, Ohio, USA, Parents: John Chezem , Melvin Chism, Spouse: Elizabeth Airhart Gouty
The following book might be helpful: Chezem genealogy, 1700-1973, Author: Stetler, Ethel Ridgway. Publisher: Herdell Print. Co., Pub Year: 1973, Pages: 190 numb. L.
Samuel Chezem owned land adjacent land owned by John Gouty on the First Land Owners of Highland Township Map.
(53) This land was a short distance south of land owned by Henry Gouty and Thomas Gouty as indicated on the map.(54)[First Land Owners of Highland Township Map].
Samuel Chezem and Elizabeth Gouty were the parents of the following children and perhaps others who are unknown:
i. Mary Ann, born July 22, 1821. She first married John H. Woody. She
married second Joseph L. Porter, December 31, 1840, in Parke County, Indiana.
ii. Lydia, born about 1824 in Indiana
iii. Jane, born about 1831 in Indiana
iv. Samuel, born about 1833 in Indiana
v. Dilbernna, born about 1836 in Indiana
vi. Delila, born about 1837 in Indiana
vii. Milo, born about 1841 in Indiana


Before we proceed with our discussion of the four Gouty brothers, John, Henry, Zachariah, and Thomas Gouty, we point out the map in the Indiana State Library entitled, Original Land Owners in Highland Township, Vermilion County, Indiana. The map shows that Henry Gouty acquired land in 1829 in Highland Township, John Gouty acquired land in 1826 in Highland Township, and Thomas Gouty acquired land in 1829 in Highland Township.(55)
Please refer to
APPENDIX FIVE after the REFERENCES section at the end of this document for a list of the Gouty and Gouty related family land purchases in Vermillion and Parke Counties, Indiana.

2. John Gouty. The Pape Funeral Home in Danville, Illinois, website lists an obituary for John Gouty that appeared in the Danville Daily News on March 2, 1879.(56) His father was listed as John Gouty (Sr.). John Gouty died in Rossville (Illinois). His age was listed as 79. The date of death was given as January 23, 1879. He was buried at Manns Chapel in Ross. His place of birth was listed as Maryland. His date of birth was listed as March 1, 1800. (57)UU) [Date of Birth 3/1/1800, Place of Birth MARYLAND, Father GOUTY,JOHN (SR.) d:rossville. Mother Danville Daily News 03/12/79, Spouse W-? age:79, Wedding Date, Date of Death  1/24/1879, Cemetery - MANNS CHAPEL]
John Gouty married first Elizabeth Earhart on October 16, 1822, in Pickaway County, Ohio.(58) She was born about 1802 and died in Vermillion County, Indiana, in the 1840s. (From: "Marriage Records Pickaway County, Ohio, 1810-1862" GOWTY, John to EARHART, Elizabeth on Oct 16, 1822)
John Gouty married second Margaret Elizabeth (Talbert) Moore on March 8, 1849, in Vermillion County, Indiana.
(59) She was born February 8, 1814, in Pennsylvania and she died May 18, 1884, in Alvin, Illinois. Margaret Talbert had first married a Thomas Moore about 1836 in Vermillion County, Highland Township, Indiana.(60)
John Gouty acquired land in Vermillion County, Indiana, as early as 1826.(61)
John Gouty and his first wife, Elizabeth Earhart, were the parents of the following children and perhaps others who are unknown:
i. Mary Ann Gouty probably was the female 5 years of age and under 10 who was listed in the 1830 Vermillion Cty, IN, census for the John Gouty family. Mary Ann Gouty was born December 25, 1823. She married Henry Talbert on February 28, 1841, in Vermillion Cty, IN. She died September 10, 1864.(62)
ii. Rachel Gouty probably was the female under 5 years of age who was listed in the 1830 Vermillion Cty, IN, census for the John Gouty family. Rachel was born May 28, 1826, in Highland Township, Vermillion Cy, IN. She married William T. Talbert on November 29, 1846, in Vermillion Cy, IN. She died February 22, 1891, in Perrysville, Vermillion Cty, IN.(63)
iii. Sarah Gouty, probably the female age 5 and under 10 in the 1840 census. She was born August 6, 1833, in Vermillion Cty, IN. She married Horatio T. Talbert. She died December 23, 1907, in West Lebanon, Warren Cty, IN.(64)
iv. Rebecca Gouty, probably was a female age 5 and under 10 in the 1840 census. She was born January 29, 1834 in Ross Township, Vermilion Cty, IL. She married Josiah Bivans on December 23, 1852, in Vermilion Cty, IL. She died November 23, 1911, in Rossville, Vermilion Cty, IL.(65)
v. William Henry Gouty was born October 20, 1840, in Highland Township, Vermillion Cty, IN. He married Mary Ann Bailey on April 23, 1872, in Perrysville, Vermillion Cty, IN. He died February 23, 1928, in Covington, Fountain Cty, IN.(66)
vi. Irvin P. Gouty born 1852, he died August 23, 1876, buried at Mann's Chapel at Rossville, Vermilion Cty, IL. He married Delilah Jane Clawson on October 10, 1872, In Vermilion Cty, IL. Delilah Jane Clawson was born February 3, 1852. Delilah J. Clawson Gouty died December 9, 1874 and is buried at Manns Chapel at Rossville, Vermilion Cty, IL.(67)
vii. Ella Gouty, born 1859, she married an N. S. Crane.(68)
The 1830 Indiana census for Vermillion County, Highland Township, lists the John Gouty family with 2 males age 20 to 30, 2 females under 5 years of age, one female 5 years of age and under 10, and 1 female twenty years of age and under 30. It seems clear that John Gouty was married sometime after the 1820 census in Ohio. It also seems obvious that Thomas Gouty must have been the other male age 20 and under 30 who lived in the 1830 John Gouty household.
The census thus indicates John Gouty was born before 1810 and perhaps another brother was living with him at that time.(69) John Gouty was the father of at least two females born between 1824 and 1830. He was the father of one female born between 1820 and 1825.
The 1840 Indiana census for Vermillion County, Highland Township, lists the John Gouty family with one male age 5 and under 10, one male 40 and under 50, one male 50 and under 60, 2 females under age 5, 3 females 5 and under 10, and one female age 30 and under 40. This census page lists all four Gouty brothers, Thomas, Henry, Zacariah, and John.(70) John Gouty was living close to the Samuel Cheeseman (Chezem) family and also near the Henry Gouty family and near the John Ricketts family.(71)
1850 US census for District 21, Vermilion County, Illinois, lists John Gouty as age 50, born in Maryland, wife Margaret born in Pennsylvania and all of his children, John 19, Rebecca 14, Nancy 12, William 10, Jane 7, and Ellen 8 months as born in Indiana. (72)
Also living with the family in 1850 were John Moore, born about 1836; Webster Moore born about 1838, Anan Moore born about 1840, Amanda Moore born about 1843. Living nearby the John Gouty family in 1850 were several Hoobler families. Thomas Gouty married a Hoobler in 18??. 1850 Illinois census for Vermilion County, District #21. It seems obvious that the first wife of John Gouty died sometime after the 1840 census and before he married Margaret Talbert Moore in 1849.

3. Henry Gouty was born about 1802 in Maryland. Henry Gouty married Rebecca Whitsell on October 22, 1823, in Pickaway County, Ohio.(73) (From: "Marriage Records Pickaway County, Ohio, 1810-1862" GOWTY, Henry to WHITSELL, Rebecca on Oct 22, 1823)
Included in a History of Vermillion County, Indiana, Biographical Sketches: Under David Gouty, Henry Gouty was born in Maryland in 1800. He died October 14, 1858, at the age of 58.

Original land owners in Vermilion County, Indiana, included Henry Gouty in 1829 in Highland Township, John Gouty in 1826 in Highland Township, and Thomas Gouty in 1829 in Highland Township.(82)

4. Thomas Gouty, married first Nancy Kerr on October 14, 1830, in Vermillion County, Indiana.(83) They were married by Thos. Chenoweth, J. P. Nancy Kerr was born about 1810 in Franklin County, Ohio.(84) She was a daughter of Samuel Kerr and his wife. The wife of Samuel Kerr probably was Nancy Gwynne.(85) Samuel Kerr and Nancy Gwynne were the parents of the following children, all born in Franklin, Ohio(86): Orson Kerr, born about 1806; Joseph Kerr, born about 1808; Nancy Kerr, born about 1810; Clarissa Kerr, born September 27, 1813; Samuel Kerr, born about 1815; Robert Kerr, born about 1818; Elijah Kerr, born about 1821; Jackson Kerr, born about 1823.
  Orson Kerr was one of the first landowners in Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana. He owned land adjacent to Thomas Gouty as shown on that map. In the 1885-1891 Lafayette, Indiana, Directories, Orson Kerr is shown as: Location Odell, Years 1885, 1886, 1891, Tippecanoe County, Indiana.
An Orson K. Kerr served as a private on the Union side in the Civil War. He was in the Veteran Reserve Corps, 2nd Battalion, Company 59.(87)(Film Number M636 roll 22). This Orson Kerr probably was a son of Orson Kerr Sr.

(88)
A key document that identifies the children of Thomas Gouty is the Vermillion County, Indiana court case of Rebecca Gouty versus Elias Gouty et al, Book 20, page 261, Vermillion County Court In Partition. The children born to Thomas Gouty and his three wives listed below are based on this court record.(VV)
Thomas Gouty and Nancy Kerr were parents of five children:
i. Clarissa Gouty, born July 5, 1832 in Highland Township, Vermillion Cty, Indiana.(89) She married John Sampson Chezem, a son of James Chezem and Mary Mitchell. James Chezem was a son of John Cheesman Chezem who was born in Baltimore, MD in 1760 and died Oct. 21, 1850. Clarissa Gouty Chezem died Apr. 7, 1875, in Deerfield, Vernon, MO. Undoubtedly Clarissa Gouty was named after the only sister of her mother. Clarissa Kerr was born Sept. 27, 1813, and she died Feb. 11, 1880. Clarissa Kerr married Isaac Demorest, his second wife, on Oct. 24, 1833, probably in Franklin County, OH.(per John H. Bell, born April 28, 1925, of Lafayette, LA 70501)
ii. Elias B. Gouty, born Sept. 11, 1833, in Highland Township, Vermillion Cty, IN, and died Apr. 18, 1915, in Vermillion Cty, IN.(90) Elias B.

iii. Mary Gouty, born about 1836 in Indiana and died Apr. 4, 1857.(94) She married William O. Hoobler on Oct. 12, 1853, in Vermilion Cty, IL. It was not uncommon for people around the Gessie, Indiana, area of Vermillion Cty, Indiana, to marry in Danville, Vermilion Cty, Illinois. He was a son of John Hoobler and Rebecca Fetterhoff. He was born Mar. 25, 1830, in Fountain Cty, Indiana. Both are buried at Phillips Cemetery, Manville, Livingston Cty, IL.

Elias N. Reynolds, who was born in Maryland, lived next to Thomas Gouty in 1850. Elias was age 46 and Thomas was age 44 in 1850. Perhaps Thomas named one of his sons Elias after Elias N. Reynolds? The wife of Elias N. Reynolds was Rebecca who is listed as age 42 and born in Ohio. However, since that would have been the year 1808, she might have been born in Maryland instead. (?Elias N. Reynolds?) Married Rebecca Craig on May 6, 1828, in Pickaway County, Ohio. Perhaps Rebecca Craig was a sister of Minerva Craig who married Zachariah Gouty.
Nancy (Kerr) Gouty, the first wife of Thomas Gouty, apparently died sometime before May 31, 1840, the date when Thomas Gouty married his second wife, Elizabeth Stutler, in Vermillion County, Indiana.(98) Vermillion County, Indiana, Marriage Records, 1838-1844 include the following: Volume III, page 43, May 31, 1840, Thomas Gouty and Elizabeth Stutler.
According to the Gessie Centennial, 1872 - 1972, "William Stutler came from Ohio in 1830 and settled in Highland Township west of Gessie. He died in 1831 leaving six children. Joseph S. a son was two years old when they came to Vermillion County, with his parents."
(99) According to a listing of First Landowners of Highland Township, William Stutler first owned land there in 1829. History of Vermillion County, Indiana, Biographical Sketches: Lists James C. Stutler who was a son of Joseph S. Stutler and a grandson of William Stutler. William settled in Highland Township in 1830, where he died one year later. Joseph S. Stutler was born in Ohio in 1820. The second wife of Thomas Gouty was related to this Stutler family.(100) J. S. Stutler, farmer, 2 miles north of Gessie, born in Ohio in 1820, settled in Vermillion County, 1829.

vii. Amos B. Gouty, born about 1845 in Danville Township, Vermilion Cty, IL.(102)

(114)

Thomas Gouty died June 10, 1863, and was buried in Hicks Cemetery, Perrysville, Vermillion County, Indiana. The tombstone of Thomas Gouty indicates he was "age 61". Therefore, Thomas was born after June 10, 1801 and before June 10, 1862. Catherine Hoobler Gouty died January 5, 1915. She is buried with Thomas Gouty in Hicks Cemetery, Perrysville, Vermillion County, Indiana.(115)


5. Zachariah Gouty, son of Pritchett and Mary Griffith Gouty. Zachariah was the youngest of the four Gouty brothers, i. e., John, Henry, Thomas, and Zachariah. Perhaps the most significant aspect of Zachariah Gouty is the fact the name Zachariah was used by his grandfather and grandmother, John Gouty and Elizabeth to name one of their sons. Pritchett Gouty and his wife apparently named one of their children Zachariah after Pritchett's brother who died in 1812.
Zachariah Gouty married Minorney Craig on November 2, 1837, in Vermillion County, Indiana.(Indiana Marriages to 1850) She was the daughter of David Craig and Sarah Gowman.(116)(One World Tree) Zachariah brought his father, Prichett Gouty, to Indiana in 1830.(117)

iv. Polly A. Gouty, born about 1845
v. Elias N. Gouty, born January 1850

Zachariah Gouty is not found in the 1830 census records but he is in the Vermillion County, Indiana, census of 1840.(119) Zachariah Gouty appears in the 1850 census for Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana.(120) He is listed as age 35 and born in Ohio.
In the 1840 Vermillion County, Indiana, census in the Zachariah Gouty (Zacariah Goutty) household there is a female between the ages of 70 and 80 years of age. This census entry is presumed to be Mary Gouty, the widow of Pritchett Gouty. Zachariah supposedly is the one who brought Pritchett and Mary Gouty to Highland Township, Vermillion County, Indiana.(121)


6. Delilah Gouty was born about 1805 in Maryland and died in 1838 in Vermillion County, Indiana. She married William Cossey(122) in 1827 in Vermillion County, Indiana, son of Nehemiah Cossey and Anne Peters.

The following excerpt is from a book started by Isaac Sheridan Jones about 1898 and completed by Carl Jones in 1953:
William Cossey was born in the state of Maryland, near the coast, about the year 1798. His parents were of thrifty Yankee stock. When a young man he pitched his tent westward and landed in Vermillion County, Indiana. There he married Miss Delilia Gouty, who was the daughter of a wealthy farmer. They had eight children: Thomas, Mary Ann, Elizabeth, Kitturah, Eliza, Delila, and William and James (twins). They lived happily together for many years (14). She died of the dreaded disease of consumption after a lingering illness.
Two years later Mr. Cossey was married to Miss Sarah Drake, who had been employed in the family, for some time previous to Mrs. Cossey's death. To them were born eleven children: Almira, Robert, Lydia Jane, Susan (died at age 16 years), John Wesley, Vina, Sadie, Frances Marion (died at age of 9 months), and Rhoda.

APPENDIX TWO


Causey (Cossey) Family


Nehemiah Causey was born about 1770 in Caroline County, Maryland and died about 1857 in Vermilion County, Illinois. Nehemiah is mentioned in the will of Thomas Causey, Sr. (Solomon's father). Land records in Caroline C. Md. mention the transfer of property and the relationship of those involved in the transactions. These land records also mention his first wife Susannah by which he had two children. The name "Cossey" does not appear until after the arrival in Vermillion Co., Indiana. Other family researchers believe the family is of Scotch descent. His father was Solomon Causey who was born about 1750 in Grant's Causeway, Ireland. He married Anne Peters on June 25, 1798, in Caroline County, Maryland. Their children were:
Katurah COSSEY b: 1800 in Caroline Co. Maryland; Peter COSSEY b: ABT. 1812 in Maryland; Nehemiah COSSEY b: ABT. 1824; Ellen COSSEY b: WFT Est. 1797-1825; William CAUSEY b: WFT Est. 1797-1825; Robert CAUSEY b: WFT Est. 1797-1825; Susan COSSEY b: WFT Est. 1797-1825; Lavinia COSSEY b: WFT Est. 1797-1825.
