I haven't worked recently on my Gooch ancestry . . . but from recall there was a Jonas Gooch in the Buncombe County family Gooch ancestry. My direct ancestor is Susannah Gooch, who married Thomas Clark, and both are buried near Rankin, in Cocke County, Tennessee. Their daughter Nancy Clark married James Swagerty, Jr. In Cocke County records I can recall just now are William and Austin Gooch. From early censuses there was an Austin family in Buncombe County.
