Ladies and gentlemen, the last time we chatted about Pricetown, Fort Salem and the Gossett family of the days of yore, we talked a little bit about William Franklin “Frank” Foust, the man who married Worth and Sarah Gossett’s eldest daughter.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I brave the snow and wintry air on this cold, cold morning, the temperature reads minus-8 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of a biting minus-21.

    It’s fairly safe to assume, however, that each of us has been guilty of doing just that – wasting time and squandering moments of opportunity. Yes, it’s also true that life is short and the older we get the more we feel it, especially as we get set to observe the ineluctable conclusion to the year that was and turn our attention to the one that looms just before us.

    I remember the all happiness and joy of the season and spending time with family and loved ones. And I remember the reason for the season. That’s what is important. Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Christmas was indeed a glorious time for my great-great-grandmother, Sarah Ann Roberts Gossett, and her family. “Grandma” Gossett was born in 1843 down in the hills of Highland County, where she lived practically all of her life.

  • The Gossett Home at Fort Salem, Part 3
    Thursday, December 14, 2017 9:59 AM
    There was no indoor plumbing and no central heat for the cold and snowy winters in the home of my great-great-grandparents, James Worth (born in 1847) and Sarah Ann Roberts Gossett (born in 1843). On their approximately 200-acre farm where they raised cattle and hogs and planted crops, there were no tractors or the kind of equipment we have today – or even the type of equipment my great-grandparents used later in life.

    In honor of Worth and Sarah Gossett and their eight children, a Gossett reunion is held the third Saturday of June each year, and it’s safe to say it’s a tradition that has been around longer than all of us have been alive.

    James Worth Gossett was born April 24, 1847 in Highland County. Sarah Ann Roberts was born in Highland County nearly four years earlier on June 4, 1843. According to tales that have been passed down through the years, young Miss Roberts was engaged to be married … but not to young Mr. Gossett. However, there was an event in history that happened called the American Civil War. Like so many who fought in the Civil War, Miss Roberts’ fiancé didn’t come home.

  • Dr. C. Ted Roush and the days of smiles and stories
    Monday, November 20, 2017 6:47 PM
    I never realized as I walked out the door on a warm, sunny day in June that I wouldn’t be walking back through that door to see him on Dec. 18 – or ever again for that matter. Instead of celebrating Dr. C. Ted Roush’s 80th birthday on Dec. 9, there will be a celebration of his life at 2 p.m. that day at Hillsboro Christian Academy. I was fortunate to see Uncle Ted the day he passed from this earth. The last thing I told him was, “We love you and will miss you, Uncle Ted.”

    Ladies and gentlemen, when I was at a local grocery the other day, I couldn’t help but hear the Christmas music that emanated through the air as townsfolk shopped for edibles and other sundries. “Good gravy,” I thought to myself, “it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet.
