History of home at 2467 David Road, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663 (Goshen)

    Emmett Howard and his wife, Ida Smith Howard, were married in 1907 and purchased a home in Goshen, near the Zeisberger Memorial Cemetery, on April 25, 1908. The couple paid $875. for the home that they purchased from Ted Golder.
    Shortly after they moved in, they rented the upstairs of the home to George Turnbolis and his wife for $3.50 per month. Children born in the home to Emmett and Ida were Mildred Howard Rausch, Evelyn Howard Moore, Donald Howard and Kathryn Howard Krocker. Emmett, a mining engineer, died in 1919 after contracting malaria while working in Charleston, S.C.
    Ida raised their children in the home while serving as the first custodian at the Goshen School, which opened in 1923. Kathryn married Eddie Krocker, of Wainwright and the couple lived with Ida in the house where their oldest child, Eddie Jr., was born. They also had a son, Tom.
    In 1955, the house was sold to Louis Krocker, Eddie’s brother, and the family, including Ida, moved to a home off Rt. 416 in what was then considered the Beidler area. Louis renovated the home, putting a basement under it and adding running water and a bathroom.
    After Louis and his wife Betty died, Betty’s mother, Mayme Cookson Swihart, came to live with and care for Louis and Betty’s children, Helen, Dan, Becky and Nadine (Dene). Later, the children married and after Mayme’s death in 1988, the house was sold to James Cookson, who rented it to several different families.
Stay tuned for additional recent history of this home.

Two Wainwright brothers, Eddie and Louie Krocker, sometimes went over the hill to Goshen and eventually met two pretty Goshen girls. Eddie married Kathryn Howard and their children are Eddie Jr. and Tom. Louie married Betty Swihart and their children are Helen of California, Dan of Navarre area, Becky of the Dayton area and the late Nadine Badertscher. Betty’s mother was Mayme Cookson Swihart.
Both Krocker families resided and raised their families in Goshen and Eddie and Louie worked for many years at the clay plant there.
Eddie Jr. and his wife, Mary, raised their six children in Goshen. They are Teri (married Joe Stein), Cindy (married Marvin Davis), Doug (married Chris Schreiner), Jim (married Joan Schreiner), Joe (married Wanda Davis) and Scott, (married Shannon Kieffer). Teri, Cindy, Doug and Scott still reside at Goshen with their families. Jim lives near Wainwright and Joe lives at Tuscarawas.
Mary recalls moving to Goshen in 1958, when she and Eddie bought the former Gibbs home, which was originally built for the superintendent of the clay plant. “I didn’t know many Goshen residents, but my husband’s Aunt Betty Krocker, invited me to a play and covered-dish dinner at the school. I had such a good time and met so many friendly Goshen residents. I have really liked Goshen ever since!”
