Santa visiting the children

Mayor Rorer welcomes Santa Clause to Goshen!

Buckingham Branch Railroad and the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve teamed up on Saturday, December 11, 2010, for Toys for Tots program  and brought Santa Clause to Goshen by rail.  Waiting for Santa to arrive were many folks of all ages as the train stopped and Santa disembarked to meet, greet and hand out candy!  Toy donations from the community were loaded on the train while Santa and his “helpers” were busy talking with the children and their families.

  1. I would like to take my wife and we go to look around in Goshen,Va from Rupert,WV and hope to cheap cost to find for rent to own the house with property.

    Is location have a good TV with Cable , Sewer , Trush and Water City?

  2. I live in South Point, Ohio. My mother’s – mother was Laura Mae Merchant and her Father was Joseph Marian Merchant. Wilson was her brother and Lauramae was the sister who lived in Goshen with her mom and bro. Anyone who knew them and would like to write to me can do so at 107 Township Road 1426-South Point, Ohio 45680. Bobby is what they called me.

  3. My grandmother was a Ramsey and I understand a Ramsey still lives on the property outside of town. We were there years ago, but no one was home. My grandfather Charles Shiplett may have been from there too. Trying to find more on them.

    I’m in Vancouver Wa. So if you know anyone who knew either one please write

    LindaCvek@gmail.com. Thanks so much.

  4. Sent you an e-mail.Shipletts were from Deerfield.Va@18 miles N of Goshen.My Grandad went to Idaho with a Jack Shiplett to work in the copper mines in Shoshone County.Jack stayed out there and may have desendants there.

  5. My brothers and sisters sold the old Youle/Condon house and land surrounding it in the 1990s, I believe. Do you know who owns it and are there any condons living in or around Goshen, Va. Before she died, my grandmother (Grace Condon) was the postmaster of the small Goshen Post office for a great many years. She died in the early 1980s and was buried in the Condon graveyard.

  6. My grandmother, Annie Kidd, was from Goshen, VA, born in 1885. Her father was William Kidd. She had siblings named Ernest, Stella, Charles and Allen. I’m trying to gather family info. Please respond if anyone knows anything. Thank you.

  7. Cary Condon, I am a direct descendent of William Youel whose son’s sold the home to your Condon ancestors for $30,000 in the 1860’s. William Youel and his wife, Elizabeth Nelson Youel are buried on the property up the hill from the home that he built in 1819. I understand this same home is still standing. I am very interested in finding out more about this home and land and would one day like to visit the gravesite of my ancestors. Are you in possession of any photos of the house? William came to America in the 1770’s from Scotland and died at age 100. My ggg grandfather, James G.W. Youel, at one time owned Maxwelton, which I understand is a boys/girls camp called Maxwelton/Lachlan.
    Thank you to anyone who has information.

  8. I am also a direct descendant and have pictures of both the house and the family graveyard up the hill. The picture I have of the graveyard is poor and the graveyard itself sadly was overgrown and appeared unkept. My mother now passed was active with our researching our family and staying in close touch with distant relatives. I’d be happy to forward the few pictures I have.
