Community of Goshen – Site 2 – Coming Soon!!!

I will still keep the original site, but the new site will give me
more capabilities and allows me to include advertising on the page.

It appears that almost everything copied over to the new site.
However, I will be looking for things that did not copy.
Please let me know if you find anything that is missing too.

Thanks!
Joe

Help! – We need more photos and family stories….

Sorry…but we are starting to run low on photos and family stories!

This site have been an overwhelming success and many people have
contacted me telling me so.  I do not make a penny off of this site, but
I do spend a lot of time managing it.  I am rewarded by hearing how much
everyone enjoys it.

We can make it even better!

I just need you to take a little time here and there to scan a photo or 
send a short story about your family or another family from the Goshen area.

We could also add a section for current news.  

Remember the newspapers of years ago?  They would print much of the day-to-day happenings in
a community.  I believe that these things all helped people feel more
like they belonged and were part of the community…even in the
dead of Winter we can share this news.

Did you take an exciting trip lately?  A new child or grandchild?
Did any member of your family do something you just really
want to tell others?  Send me an email and I may add it.

Do you have other ideas of things we could add here?  Let me know!!!

Thanks!
Joe

Early mailman…

John Haas, Goshens early mailman.

Left, John Haas, Goshen’s early mailman, picked mail up at streetcar
stop on E. High Ave. in Schoenbrunn and delivered to Goshen, Beidler
and Goshen Hill. Seated on right is Tom Edwards.

From Kate Swaldo of Wainwright:
Before my grandfather, John Haas, began delivering mail in the Goshen area, he had
served in the Civil War. He really wasn’t old enough, but he wanted to serve his country
and so he lied about his age so he could enlist. His two brothers also were serving in
the Civil War. While serving, all three brothers fought together in one battle and sadly,
John’s two brothers were killed.
