Gateway Gossage/Gorsuch

Three Gossage/Gorsuch brothers emigrated to the colonies together before mid 1600s.

One settled in the Carolinas, another (the pirate) went to California on foot via the Gulf, then by ship to Panama, up the coast to California by ship (AFTER quitting his pirating ways), the third was one of the first Europeans to settle in the Mohawk River Valley (my branch).

These folks may or may not be related to the Anne Lovelace Gorsuch family who immigrated mid 1600's, but do not appear to be part of that immediate family. Perhaps these earlier arrivals are related as Uncles or Cousins.
