This narrative account of a small New England town (corrected and enlarged by the author) begins with the arrival of its settlers in 1726 and concludes with marriage entries from 1896. Deacon Lewis Mills Norton preserved the first 100 years of Goshen's existence with personal recollections, data from church records, trade ledgers, land grants, school enrollment, and conscription lists, augmented by delightful anecdotes and accounts of Indian raids, and Revolutionary and Civil wars events. The town's first citizens, military records, public employees, religious leaders, physicians, lawyers, teachers, tradesmen, and genealogies of early Goshen families: Baldwin, Bartholomew, Beach, Brooks, Buell, Collins, Cook, Gaylord, Griswold, Hall, Humphrey, Ives, Lewis, Lucas, Lyman, Merwin, Miles, Norton, Thompson, Towner and many more are included. Photographs and illustrations, the original subject index and a new full name index enhance this work. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
