Many thanks for your response. Herman was was a son of Martin (b. about 1800- d. bet. 1865-1870) and wife of Charlot Linde (d. abt 1886) of Sheboygan Co. Other known children were Ernestine (m. G. J. J. Wedig), August Gosse (m. Ernestine Lueloff), Henrietta Gosse (m. Ludwig Lulloff), Charles Gosse (m. Ernestine Lulloff), William Gosse (m. Catherine Junker), Frederick Gosse (died serving Civil War), Augusta Gosse (m. Arnold Schutte and Frank Lulloff) and G. Henry Gosse (m. Margaretha Thomas). Charles, Henrietta and Augusta moved to Buchanan County, Iowa about 1868 with other children remaining in Wisconsin, primarily Sheboygan and Clark counties. Almost without exception, we have been able to place all Gosse individuals in Iowa and Wisconsin in this family. Emil Gosse (b. 1880) is one exception!
