Hi, My name is Melvin Gott, I actually posted a similar message to this about 5 years ago.I prefer to be called by the short version of my middle name "Rick". I was born in Moline, Il in 1972. I am in the Navy, and currently stationed in Oxnard, Ca.My father is Melvin R. Gott III. He was born in Davenport, Ia, but spent much of his life in Hannibal Mo. I don't know many other Gott's other than my father and my brother. My grandfather Melvin R. Gott Jr. passed before I was born, so I never got to know much of his side of the family, I do know I have a great uncle "Vernon", I believe he may live in Davenport Ia, and I think an Uncle Louie also in Davenport. If you think you may be related, please send me an e-mail.I was able to get in touch with my uncle Orville who is Vernon and Louie's brother, but I've since lost touch with him.
