See previous posting...name on genforum spelled Gonsalus. Here is what I posted several years ago:
In doing reserach on another family, I have obtained this info on Gonsalus. Peter, age 77 is in the Stephens Co., TX census in 1880. Listed with him: Susannah, wife, 47; Patsy, 14 and Solomon, 16. Peter was born in NY, father in Holland and mother in NY.
In 1880, I also find another Peter Gonsalus who may be his son living in JACK County, Tx, with a wife and 8 children. In 1900 the younger Peter is now in Shackelford Co., Tx with wife and 5 children.
