James Pickney GOSA, was the father of James Vanderbilt GOSA, John T. GOSA, and Mary Elizabeth (Liza) Gosa. John was my g grandfather. I don't know who his wife was. She died during childbirth. Mittie Lee was that child. John gave Mittie to an older couple to raise, because hhad crops in the fields. As Mittie Lee grew up in Itawamba Co., Ms. she met Wm. Napoleon Griffith. Napoleons' mother lived with them when they married. They soon had Eula and later on Mittie got pregant again. Napoleons' mother liked to beat on Mittie. She took all she could and she left him. She went to the couple that raised her. She stayed with them till she gave birth to my mother. She met and fell in love with a Clyde Edgil and they marrid. She left my mom with them to raise. As my mom grew up and got married the ladys' husband died and mom got maried and she moved in with them. She passed away while we were living, in Becker, Ms., with us. Her name was Florence Miles.
