    Ladies and gentlemen, John Gossett, a pioneer of Ohio and Highland County, was born in 1769 and settled near New Market in 1799 – roughly 222 years ago. As we discussed earlier, he built the first gristmill in Highland County, was the first state representative from Highland County, and was a farmer.

    John Gossett of New Market was the state representative in 1803, 1805 and 1809 for Highland County. When Highland County was formed, New Market was the county seat and was growing.

    When he was in his early 30s, John Gossett purchased several hundred acres of land southeast of New Market. The price of land was $2 per acre. The recorder of Ross County at Chillicothe found the following record of early date: Nov. 9, 1801, John Gossett purchased from Henry Massie by Warranty Deed Recorded in Volume I, Page 600, 200 acres of land in Highland County for $400. In 1801, on his land situated on White Oak Creek, John Gossett erected the first gristmill in the county.

    Ladies and gentlemen, John Gossett, a pioneer of Ohio and Highland County, was the son of Matthias and Mary Gossett and Matthias was the first his siblings to be born in America in 1740. The Gossetts descended from nobility, as Matthias’ father was a grandson of Jean Batiste Gosset (only one “t” in Gossett at the time), a French Huguenot, who fled France and took refuge in Jersey Island, England, in 1685.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the surname Gossett has been a prominent one in Highland County for more than two centuries. The first Gossett to settle in Highland County was John Gossett, along with his wife, Honor Hull Gossett, and their family. The Gossetts actually came to Highland County before there was a Highland County.

    We all need to remember that if we help and support the Baileys of the world, we all win. Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter!! And a Very Merry Christmas to you, Bedford Falls – I mean, Highland County! And may God bless the Baileys. “For Auld Lang Syne, my dear, for Auld Lang Syne. We’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for Auld Lang Syne.”
