Sorry it took so long to come across your message but I hope you see this and that the Gossner's I have information
on are related to you. Please let me know if they are.

William F. and Caroline Gossner lived at 2307 Jefferson
St. in Phila. at time of 1880 census (June, 1880). They
are buried in Glenwood Memorial Gardens, 2321 West Chester
Pike, Broomall, PA in the plot owned by my great great
grandmother, Ann Hope Hart. William, age 46, died shortly after that census and was interred July 27, 1880. Caroline, at age 42, was interred on Feb. 6, 1888.

Here is 1880 census data:
occupation birth(self) Father Mother
William F. 46 In store PA PA PA
Caroline C.33 Keeping House PA Holland Holland
Frank R 8 At School PA PA PA
John 6 At School PA PA PA

Boarding with them was Ida C. Hart, age 15, who was the
dtr. of Ann and William Hart, the latter being listed
as born in Holland (though all other known records have him born in Germany). So possibly Caroline C. Gossner
was related to William Hart.

Philadelphia Directory listings I found for Gossner in
that era:


William H., laborer, h. 1221 Fulton
Peter laborer, h.r. 427 Marriott
Mary trimmings, h. 839 E. Norris
Joseph, potter, h. 839 E. Norris


Charles brakeman, h. 2414 Perot
Joseph, potter, h. 239 Jefferson


Caroline, wid. John, h. 1933 Brown

Good luck with your research.

John Murray
