Obit: Died, Saturday, May 28, 1888, Jacob Gosmann, aged 54 years and 3 months.   Mr. Gosmann was a native of York, Pa., born there February 25, 1834 and received a fair education in the common schools of that locality.  On may 13, 1856 he was married in Adams County, Pa., to Miss Susan Neuhauser, by whom he had one son, who is now in the sevice of the Air-Line railroad near Evansville.     His wife died February 11, 1879. He came to Dubois County in April, 1864, and settled in what is now Marion Township, buying a farm, and tending it in summer and teaching school in winter.   Farm work proving too hard for him, he moved to Jasper in 1879, and secured work at copying in the county offices.  In the spring of 1880 he started a book store, and had built up a profitable business in books and wall-paper, which took all of his time. On October 14, 1880, he was married the second time, his wife being Miss Caroline Segers, by whom he has had several children.  Two of whom and his widow survive him.  He was a loving husband and parent, an industrious and moral citizen, and an active, enterprising business man, who will be much missed in our town.  Before he started his book store he had taught in the public schools of the county about 12 years giving general satisfaction as an instructor and trainer of the habits of the youth under his charge.    Mr. Gosmann was one of the charter members of St. Fedilis Branch, No. 119, Catholic Knights of America, who attended his funeral as a body, and in which organization his life was insured for $2000, for the benefit of his widow.

Dr. Robert F. Gosman, 58, of Jasper died suddenly during the noon hour Monday outside the dental office in Holland where he had practiced since late in 1967.
Dr. Gosman was eating lunch at a cafe in Holland shortly before noon yesterday when he started to perspire and complained that he was very hot The proprietor asked whether he would like to have someone drive him to his office but he said he would be all right, and left the cafe and got into his car.
Around 12:20 p.m. Mrs. William Estabrook of Huntingburg, his office assistant, went outside the building to look for him when he failed to come into the office where some patients were waiting. She noticed his car parked near the building but did not see him in the car. She walked around the building and then returned to the car where Dr. Gosman was slumped sideways in the seat.
While death was apparently due to a coronary occlusion an autopsy is being held.
Bob Gosman was graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis in 1937 after which he opened an office in Jasper for the practice of his profession. In December of 1967he discontinued his practice in Jasper and opened an office at Holland.
Dr. Gosman was born on March 12,1913,the son of Amelia (Emma) Dittmer Gosman and the late William Gosman.
He was a World War II veteran, serving in the Army Dental Corps with the 196th Field Artillery Group in Europe  and Africa with the rank of captain.
He was a member of Precious Blood Catholic Church, the Precious Blood Men's Society, the Fourth Degree  Assembly of the Knights of Columbus, the American, Indiana and First District dental associations, the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, J-Men's Club and the Kiwanis Club.
