You might be able to help with one puzzle- I found Eli Goss, b 1814 Danville, living in Greenwood in 1839; (Eli's parents Joshua Goss and Lois Rowe, Joshua descended from Thomas and second wife Eunice while our Thomas descended from Thoams and 1st wife Mary Tarr) member of H Company of 3rd Reg 2 B 6th Division. He served under Capt Amos Noyes but I cant find Oliver Goss who was one of those unrecognized original posse members. He served with Capt Thomas Emery of Hampden, enlisting after McIntire was kidnapped, but before Gen Order No 7. He should fit into our line since at least one, perhaps two of Thomas' children were up in Penobscot County by then but he doesnt appear anywhere on the traditional family websites and no Oliver born in Maine appears in the 1880 census. So before I start scouring the earlier censuses and hope he lived to 1850- I thought I would ask. Bertie
