Where are they now? – Wanda Carlisle Golder

 Wanda Carlisle Golder says she now resides in the “outskirts of Goshen” after living in Goshen her entire life.

    “I now live in the little settlement of Ninevah,” explained Golder. “I was born in Goshen in November, of 1932. When in Goshen, I lived on what is now Route 416, S.E., near the former Loveday Store. There were 10 children in our home.”

Golder’s parents were the late James C. and Helen Carlisle. Their children were Dorothy Carlisle Hibbs (deceased), James J. Carlisle, Faye Carlisle Meese, Jeane Carlisle Crites, Joe Carlisle, Dan Carlisle, Wanda Carlisle Golder, Tom Carlisle (deceased) Margie Carlisle Levengood and Linda Carlisle Edie. Golder’s grandfather and grandmother, Robert and Bertha Carlisle, also resided in Goshen, “and that’s how I was from Goshen.” noted Golder while adding, “My sister (Margie Carlisle Levengood) and husband still live in our home place, the place where all of us kids were born.”

Golder is retired from Joy Manufacturing, of New Philadelphia and said she has very fond memories of her school years at the Goshen School.

Sue Rolli Kirtley Family

  Sue Rolli Kirtley resided in Goshen from 1959 to 1976.  She lived with her parents Marge and Neil and brothers Kevin and Allan.  Neil passed away in January of 1987 and Kevin in December of 2004.  They had all resided along old Rt. 4 which is currently State Route 416 across from Rolli’s Tavern which was owned and operated by her parents.  They also owned a gas station at one time.
    Kirtley now lives in Dover and has two daughters Stacy Michelle and Blair Elizabeth, sons-in-law Dwyane and Sean and one granddaughter, Johanna Jane. Sue is currently working at Lauren Manufacturing, in New Philadelphia.  Kirtley says she always felt there was something fun to do in the Goshen community.
    “I played on the girls softball team for 5-6 years,” she noted. “I can remember Jim Scott, from Strasburg, was a coach at one point as well as Ed McPherson, of Tuscarawas. Jo Ann Davis (Guy), Bubbles (Catherine) McWilliams, Arleen and Leann (Liedke) McWilliams, Susie Kennedy (Burgess), Cheryl McPherson, Candy and Vicki Casebeer, Cindy (Krocker Davis) and Teri (Krocker Stein) were teammates as best I can remember. I think also Peggy Hobart, Debbie Shroyer and Susie Goss (Sherer) may have played at one time as well.”
    Kirtley also loved sled riding and ice skating and enjoyed watching the baseball teams during the summer.  The softball team played on the field once owned by Huck and Ellen Wilson and where the little league games were held.
    In her spare time these days, Kirtley likes to spend time with her brother.
    “Allan and I are very close,” she said.  “We enjoy riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, attending drag racing events together, or just going for a ride.”
    Kirtley remembers a lot of her family’s history as well as that of the community and is anxious to share it. Here is that history in her words:
    “Mom and Dad moved to Goshen in 1954 and built what is now Gary Mangon’s house. There, they operated a Sinclair gas station.”, she explained.  “My Grandma Helen Rolli, operated a general store next door in the house that Jimmy Carlisle did live in. I don’t know if he still lives there or not.  Also, my Grandma Helen operated a rootbeer stand on the property where Gary Garabrandt’s mobile home is located. The root beer stand had the first “drive in” movie in the area. The movies would be shown on the side of the store and later she got a big movie screen. My Grandma Rolli purchased the tavern from a lady named Mary Johnson and operated it for many years until she had a stroke and died in 1967. The tavern was left to my dad, Neil Rolli and it was operated by him and my mom, Marge and George “Pappy” Szita. Pappy was my Grandma Rolli’s companion for many years. He had a sister, Agnes and a brother Louis. They lived in a house beside Kennedy’s.
    I think the rebuilding of Route 4 into S.R. 416 happened in 1974-75. (In a later e-mail, Kirtley notes that on the back of a photo of the newly built tavern it says the plumbing was completed in 1973!) The new road caused several people to have to relocate their homes/businesses. Mom and Dad couldn’t have the tavern moved because it was such a large building, so they built a new tavern that is currently some type of “gaming” place. The old tavern was torn down because the new roads’ center line would basically go straight down through the middle of the building. I can remember the road crew hauled fill dirt off of mom and dad’s hill, behind our house, to make the base for the new road.
     I can remember that Ralph Simmers moved (Bill and Betty) Kennedy’s house down over the hill to its current location. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson’s house was bought by Mom and Dad and also moved by Ralph Simmers and was eventually located right across the road from the new tavern.  After some remodeling of the Anderson house, mom and dad sold the cement block house to Gary Mangon and we moved into the Anderson house. Agnes and Louis Szita’s house was also moved down the lane by the Welshenbaugh and Reynolds families. Also the gas station and store operated by Huck and Ellen Wilson was moved down the road.  Actually, their house was moved and a new gas station and store were built and is now where Fox’s Horse Farm is located.
    My dad raced stock cars for several years, say from 1954 until somewhere around 1959 or 1960. We always had a crowd of men in our garage. I can remember John Lieser, Jerry Coletti and Bob Condo. Ironically, Bob Condo is my neighbor now.  I have several pictures of my dad and his stock car and these guys.”
    Kirtley added that she has many photos of the community as well as some Goshen School “class photos” and would like to add those to the website in the near future.  Marge Rolli is now living at the Schoenbrunn Healthcare Center, in New Philadelphia.

Goshen Little League

Approximately 40 years ago, the Goshen Little League thrived and was an exciting part of the Goshen Community. Ron Ebert coached the team for a few years and then Daniel D. Carlisle took the reigns. During this time the Midvale Lions sponsored the teams of Goshen, Roswell, Barnhill and Midvale which made up the league. After a few years, Goshen became part of the county league and New Philadelphia donated uniforms to Goshen’s team. Games were played on a ballfied owned by Huck and Ellen Wilson. The property is currently Fox’s Horse Farm. The Wilson’s bought wire fencing and Warner and Swasey made poles to create the backstop.

The community enjoyed taking part of the baseball team. Elsie Starcher was treasurer and ran the concession stand with the held of volunteers. The team had many players during this time and won several tournaments. A Pony League Team (ages 13-17) in Goshen was also dominate the sport for many years.

After Dan Carlisle moved on to coach several other area teams, others stepped in to fill the role of coach. Some them were Louie Krocker, Ed Leggett and Ed Krocker. Following each season, a banquet was held at the Chicken Manor, at Strasburg.

“Fuzzy” and Carol Carlisle Family


Don “Fuzzy” and Carol Carlisle moved to Goshen in 1961 to their home on Goshen Valley Rd. The Carlisles were surprised to learn that Don’s grandparents, Gibson, Sr. and Ellla Carlisle, and their children Leroy, Florence, Elizabeth and Gibson Jr., (Don’s father) had once occupied the home.

The home has been renovated recently and is now owned by Dan and Dana Krocker. The Carlisles have three children, James, Debbie and Linda. Fuzzy was well known as Goshen’s honorary mayor. During the 1993 Goshen Picnic, Don received a badge designating him as Mayor that had been made for him by neighbors. There is more on the Carlisle’s home and family on page 10 of Recollections of a Community Part 2.

Edwin and Anna Hibbs Family

Edwin and Anna Hibbs bought a large house across from the Goshen School House in the 1930’s. Their daughter Thelma married Waldon Leggett and the couple built a home on the other side of what is now Goshen Valley Dr., next to the School house. They had three sons, Dick, Terry and Ed. When Edwin and Anna Hibb’s son Bill, married Dorothy Carlisle, they made an apartment for them in the upstairs of their home. Bill and Dorothy later purchased the home and raised their three children Ginny, Janice and Bill. The house, which is now owned by Bill and Dorothy’s grandson, Eric Sickafoose, was believed to be Goshen’s first church and Moravian mission house established about 1798. Eric has resided in the home since 1997 with his wife and daughter.
