I didn't read this message before replying to the other one, sorry.
So, perhaps that other post was in error that indicated there was a Sylvester, s/o Sylvester?
Do you know names of Samuel's other children? Or his parents? The more that I research this family, the more strongly I conclude that most that spell their name Gorsline are connected. There is a large group from Sayre, PA area, and another group from NY. While I know that the line that I descend from originated in NY, the initial correspondence that I have had with those currently from NY & PA had indicated they were a different branch. But - I just found information that would indicate otherwise, as when they get their line far enough back, they are from the same line. We have just started to exchange information, so I don't have the whole picture of how these lines tie together.
Marvin who I mentioned in previous message, was s/o William and ? I don't have his mother's name yet, but I am optomistic that is something that I will find soon. Samuel's birth year would put him in the same generation as Marvin. I don't have a complete list of Marvin's siblings, but I do have the following:
The William that was father of Marvin, did have a brother named Samuel.
It will be interesting to see what we discover.
