Hello, we must be distant cousins.
Flora Myrtle Golaz May, daughter of John Henry Golaz, was my grandmother.
Philip Golas (name has changed in US) married Minerva Mershon. The Mershons go back back in Revolutionary history and hold a big reunion every year. You can check what I have I think on my tree. It should be public. I dont' have any more info on Philip Golaz, but found an article on the internet at one time. He was involved in politics in Switzerland.
