Goss

Angus R. Goss born 8 January 1910 at Tampa. Fla., enlisted in the United States Marine Corps 12 September 1930. Marine Gunner Goss was awarded the Navy Cross and Britain's Conspicuous Gallantry Medal for extraordinary heroism in combat on Tulagi 10 August 1942. Although severely wounded by a grenade explosion, Goss ignored enemy machine-gun and rifle fire, charging into a cave where the enemy was entrenched and singlehandedly destroyed the Japanese with a sub-machine gun.

(DE 444: dp. 1.360; 1. 306', b. 36'8", dr. 9'0" (mean); s. 24 k.; cpl. 222, a. 2 5", 2 40mm., 3 21" tt., cl. John Butler)

Goss (DE~444) was laid down on December 1943 by the Federal Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co., Newark, N.J.; launched 19 March 1944; sponsored by Mrs. Jamie S. Goss, sister-in-law of Marine Gunner Goss; and commissioned 26 August 1944, Lt. Comdr. Claude A. Kirkpatrick in command.

After shakedown out of Bermuda, Goss departed Norfolk 30 October and steamed via the Canal Zone and San Francisco to Pearl Harbor, where she arrived 2 December and reported for duty. Goss was underway 5 December 1944 from Pearl Harbor via Eniwetok to Kossel Roads, Palau Islands, where she joined Tulapi ( CVE-72) and four other destroyer escorts to form a hunter-killer group which operated off the Palau Islands.

As a unit of Vice Admiral Oldendorf's Bombardment and Fire Support Group, Goss sortied from Kossel Roads 1 January 1945 bound for Lingayen Gulf. In the early hours of 6 January, as Oldendorf's ships steamed within 150 miles of Japanese airfields on Luzon, they were spotted by scout planes. At 0758 combat air patrol intercepted 15 to 20 enemy planes 35 miles from the formation, shot down 9, and turned the others back. At noon another raid was intercepted and turned back about 45 miles from the ships. The last and heaviest air attack of the day came at 1650 about 100 miles off Corregidor. Sixteen kamikazes with four escorts broke through combat air patrol to dive at the ships. They succeeded in hitting heavy cruisers Louisville, and HMAS Australia; escort carrier Manila Bay; and destroyer escort Stafford. In the fierce fight to repel this deadly threat, Goss was credited with shooting down two kamikazes.

Next day, cruising about 60 miles off Lingayen Gulf the formation began breaking up into units with the battleships, cruisers, Beach Demolition Group and their escort.s starting their separate missions. Goss, as part of the screen for Rear Admiral Durgin's Lingayen Carrier Group, gallantly carried out her mission in support of the Lingayen Landings until 20 January. Retiring from the area, she reached Mindoro dawn 21 January.

From 21 February to 6 June 1945 Goss operated as a unit of Admiral Stump's Task Group 52.1 under 5th Fleet as part of the close air support for the invasion of Iwo Jima. Goss continued her escort duties, next taking part in the Okinawa operations, last stop on the island road to Japan. This duty lasted until 30 June 1945.

Goss sortied from Ulithi 3 July as part of the screen for Admiral D. B. Beary's Logistic Support Group (TG 30.8). This group acted as the replenishment group for Admiral Fitscher's Carrier Task Force 38 as they struck the main islands of Japan with carrier planes and battleship guns. The Logistics Group operated in an area from 250 to 500 miles east of Honshu, fueling the fast carrier strike force and furnishing replacement aircraft. Late in July Goss joined Task Group 94.17, a hunter-killer team, to operate along the shipping lanes southeast of Okinawa. From 7 through 24 August she operated with Task Group 75.19 as hunter-killer group east of Formosa. With the war over, Goss retired to San Pedro Bay 25 August and cleared that port 2 days later as part of the screen for Task Force 32 and 33, landing units of the 8th Army in Tokyo Bay 2 September.

Goss continued her duties until 5 November when she departed Tokyo Bay for home. After touching at Pearl Harbor Goss arrived Los Angeles 22 November 1945. She remained on the West Coast and decommissioned at San Diego 15 June 1946 and joined the Pacific Reserve Fleet.

Goss recommissioned 27 December 1950 at San Diego Lt. L. R. Hayes, commanding. Goss was assigned duty under Commandant, 11th Naval District as a reserve training ship. Her operations consisted of readiness and tactical cruises on the west coast from Alaska to South America as well as visits to Hawaii, Cuba and Panama. Goss decommissioned at Astoria, Ore., 10 October 1958 and again joined the Pacific Reserve Fleet. She was later transferred to Bremerton, Wash., where she remains.

Goss received four battle stars for World War II service.

Seeking military records of William Bienes

I would like to know my fathers military records. He passed away on May 12 1953 in  New York., 7 months after I was born so I never knew him. My mother also passed away in 2012. I am married to a retired Navy Chief. My father's name was William Agustus Bienes. I don’t have any more information then that afraid my mom was never into talking about family.  He had a brother named Robert Bienes.

Re: Seeking military records of William Bienes

Here is a copy of his burial card. Looks like he was a Machinist Mate (MM Ist/c) Also found him on the USS Goss (DE-444). You can now take this information and when NPRC re-opens in St. Louis you can request his full military records file if they have it available. There was a fire in early 70s that destroyed many records but I think the Navy records were minimal loss compared to Army and Air Force service member records.

Re: Seeking military records of William Bienes

Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

We suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs and individual medical reports for those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and who were separated from the service prior to 1958 are in the custody of NARA's National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. In many cases where Army and Army Air Corps personnel records were destroyed in the 1973 fire , proof of service can be provided from other records such as morning reports, payrolls, and military orders, and a certificate of military service will be issued. Navy and Marine Corps OMPFs were not affected by the fire. Please complete a GSA Standard Form 180 and mail it to NARA's National Personnel Records Center, (Military Personnel Records), 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138-1002. You also may fax the form to 314-801-9195. For more information see Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF), Archival Records Requests .

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NPRC was closed from March 23 through June 23, 2020.  As of June 24th, the NPRC entered into Phase One of a gradual reopening process.  The center is currently only servicing emergency requests and will soon expand its service to include time-sensitive requests from veterans for records needed to secure VA home loan guarantees and employment opportunities. We apologize for any inconvenience.

444 Years: The Massacre of the Huguenot Christians in America

A couple years ago I took an afternoon to visit to the Spanish fortress at St. Augustine, Florida. I'm somewhat of a history fan, so I like to stop at sites that make your typical teenager groan. But this day I left my teens at the condo in Orlando and made the trek to the Atlantic coast. On the way I saw a sign for Fort Matanzas National Monument and decided to check it out.

Being a student of American history I had heard of the massacre of the French Huguenot settlers in Florida, but I had not visited the sites where it took place. As I joined the tour at Fort Matanzas (meaning "slaughters" in Spanish), I learned the details of this North American extension of the religious, political, and military struggle that resulted from the Reformation.

In 1564 a group of French Protestants known as Huguenots settled in Spanish-claimed territory near present-day Jacksonville. They built Fort Caroline on the St. John's River in Florida, in present-day Jacksonville. On June 30, 1564, they set a day of Thanksgiving and offered the first Protestant prayer in North America:

"We sang a psalm of Thanksgiving unto God, beseeching Him that it would please Him to continue His accustomed goodness towards us."

According to Bill Federer's American Minute, in 1989, Rep. Bennett recited the history. "Three small ships carrying 300 Frenchmen led by Rene de Laudonniere anchored in the river known today as the St. Johns. . . On June 30, 1564, construction of a triangular-shaped fort . . . was begun with the help of a local tribe of Timucuan Indians . . . (Fort Caroline was) home for this hardy group of Huguenots . . . their strong religious motivations inspired them."

When the king of Spain discovered this encroachment on what he considered his property, he dispatched an army under Don Pedro Menéndez to drive out the French and to establish a Spanish colony in La Florida. This was the beginning of St. Augustine.

The National Park Service provides these details of the conflict:

Spanish treasure fleets sailed along the Florida coast on their way to Spain and Fort Caroline provided a perfect base for French attacks. Worst of all to the devoutly Catholic Philip, the settlers were Huguenots (French Protestants). Despite Philip's protests, Jean Ribault sailed from France in May 1565 with more than 600 soldiers and settlers to resupply Fort Caroline.

General Pedro Menéndez de Aviles, charged with removing the French, also sailed in May, arriving at the Saint Johns River in August with some 800 people, shortly after Ribault. The Spanish came ashore on September 8 and established and named their new village "St. Augustine" because land had first been sighted on the Feast Day of St. Augustine, August 28.

Jean Ribault sailed on September 10 to attack and wipe out the Spanish at St. Augustine, but a hurricane carried his ships far to the south, wrecking them on the Florida coast.

At the same time, Menéndez led a force to attack Fort Caroline. Since most of the soldiers were absent, Menéndez was easily able to capture the French settlement, killing most of the men in the battle. He then learned from Timucuan Indians that a group of white men were on the beach a few miles south of St. Augustine. He marched with 70 soldiers to where an inlet had blocked 127 of the shipwrecked Frenchmen trying to get back to Fort Caroline.

With a captured Frenchman as translator, Menéndez described how Fort Caroline had been captured and urged the French to surrender. Rumors to the contrary, he made no promises as to sparing them. Having lost most of their food and weapons in the shipwreck, they did surrender. However, when Menéndez then demanded that they give up their Protestant faith and accept Catholicism, they refused. 111 Frenchmen were killed. Only sixteen were spared - a few who professed being Catholic, some impressed Breton sailors, and four artisans needed at St. Augustine.

Two weeks later the sequence of events was repeated. More French survivors appeared at the inlet, including Jean Ribault. On October 12 Ribault and his men surrendered and met their fate, again refusing to give up their faith. This time 134 were killed. From that time, the inlet was called Matanzas -- meaning "slaughters" in Spanish.

The Capitol Hill Prayer newsletter recently featured a story on the anniversary of the French Huguenot massacre.

"Although they died as martyrs 444 years ago, the sacrifice of the French Huguenots in Florida still stands in eternity, and the price has been paid in the heavens for our freedom on this land, here on earth. Praise God. . . . they loved not their lives unto death." (Rev. 12:11)

The newsletter explains that a mural in the United States Capitol reveals this part of Florida's history and provides a map depicting the three oldest cities in our nation:

"An often overlooked site of interest in the U.S. Capitol is a historical map that is shown in the ceiling of the Cox Corridor in the House wing of the Capitol Building. Titled 'Fort St. Augustine,' this mural is in the ceiling of the corridor, and shows the dates of the founding of the first three cities in our land: St. Augustine (1565), Jamestown (1607), and Plymouth (1620)."

"The Spanish conquistadors founded St. Augustine, Florida on September 8, 1565 while they carried out the command of King Philip II of Spain, to 'do away with' the 'French problem' on land that Spain had claimed."

"Later, the Spanish built the Castillo de San Marcos -- a fearsome-looking fortress, designed to serve as a signal to all others that this land belonged to Spain! The Castillo de San Marcos, which took 30 years to build, is also shown on this map."

"St. Augustine, Florida, is the oldest city in America today, having been founded by Europeans who have resided there ever since."

These are significant and beautiful historic sites and, in combination with Fort Caroline in Jacksonville, and Fort Matanzas, just south of St. Augustine on the Atlantic Coast, are worth a visit.

A National Geographic's " Genographic Project " study of my Y chromosome, which has passed from father to son since the beginning of our species, shows that the male Goss line carries the M170 marker (Haplogroup I), one of several minor genetic mutations used to track various migrating populations. This marker which is common to Europeans originated with the so-called "Eurasian Adam" who lived in the region of modern-day Sudan and Ethiopia as far back as 79,000 years ago and carried the M168 marker. This marker is carried by every non-African person alive today. From there the line moved north to the Arabian peninsula and fanned out across the rest of the world. The M89 marker (Haplogroup F) appeared in the Middle East some 45,000 years ago which spawned lines in Europe, Asia, and India. 90 to 95 percent of all non-African races (essentially all but Australian aborigines, some Asia-Pacific lines, and one line of Native Americans) carry the M89 marker. It is some 20,000 years ago (a good 800 generations back) that the M170 marker appears in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) and the Balkans before spreading into southeastern and central Europe.

< The Goss Family comes to America (one branch) This branch of the Goss family is said to have been involved in the Wyoming Massacre.

Children of Elizabeth ? and Johan Georg GOESS are:

George GOSS , Jr. was born 1758 in Northumberland Co. PA, and died 1778 in Wyoming Valley Masacre,PA (Rev. War).
Jacob GOSS was born 1760 in Northumberland CO,PA, and died 1778 in Wyoming Valley Masacre,PA (Rev. War).
Abraham GOSS was born 1762 in Northumberland Co. PA, and died 14 APR 1847 in Decatur Twp. Clearfield Co. PA. He married 1. Elizabeth EMENHISER 1791 in Lock Haven, Clinton CO, PA. She was born 1776 in Lock Haven PA, and died 24 MAY 1821 in Osceola Mills, Clearfield Co. PA. He married 2. Mary SHIVELY AFT 1821 in Clearfield CO PA. She was born 1758, and died 1838 in Clearfield Co PA.

Soldier : Revolutionary War Born: Luzerne, Wyoming Valley, PA *** From Clearfield County Genealogy - Goss Family Folder - Biography of Goss After the Revolutionary War, Abraham Goss, Elizabeth (Emenhiser) Goss and his mother Elizabeth Goss, made their way to Stumptown (now a suburb of Osceola Mills) it is believed in the year 1797. There they cleared aany acres and turned the wilds into one of the finest farms in the county. Abe and Elizabeth had thirteen children, although the mother and child were both lost at the birth of the thirteenth child. Of the remaining twelve children all were married and had large families of their own. The Goss' were a very prolific family because of this many Clearfield County researchers find themselves researching this family in one way or another. There are today living in Clearfield County literally thousands of descendants of Abe and Elizabeth Goss. *** A NATIONAL REGISTER OF THE SOCIETY SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION PRINCIPAL EVENTS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.

The original copy of the document is at the Philipsburg Historical Foundation.

“Abraham Goss, the founder of the Goss Settlement, started to build his cabin on the 24th of October, 1798 and in the fall of 1799 he built a house. Mr. Goss was a Revolutionary soldier: he took care of George Washington’s horse and rode it many a time. His sons were David, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, George and John. He is buried in the Crain Cemetery between Philipsburg and Osceola Mills.

“His son David was the father of A. E. Goss, of North Third Street, father of Harry Goss. He built a log house sixteen feet square, and one and one half stories high. There was no stairway inside, but a ladder outside reached the upper floor. For lights they sometimes plaited flannel, lighted one end and placed the other end in a saucer of grease. They also used pine fagots stuck in the stone fireplace. Besides these lights, they burned so many candles that Mr. Goss says his father ordered George Seabright to dip him a thousand at one time.

Besides the family of thirteen, they kept three girls all the time one did nothing but sew and the other two did the cooking. They also kept the farm hands, all in the little house sixteen feet square. Trundle beds were used in those days. “In this house was a large stone chimney, they burned hickory or oak lo gs, four or five feet long. If they were all going to be away over Sunday, they would heat the log red hot, then cover with ashes. It would keep hot sometimes three or four days. If it should die out they would have to go to the neighbors for a light.”

*** Listed in the Cemeteries of Clearfield County in the Goss Cemetery is Abraham and shows that he died on April 14, 1847 at age 88 years. There is a second stone at foot of grave that shows 85 years. At death. A soldier of '76. ***

Renovations and expansions

In the mid-1970s, Hillsborough High went through a massive renovation. The school's students, faculty and staff were forced to temporarily move out and hold double session classes with other schools for the 1975-76 school year. . [10] Hillsborough High 10th-grade students attended the afternoon session at George Washington Junior High at 2704 N. Highland Avenue, the same building originally built for HHS in 1911. 11th and 12th graders and staff were forced into the afternoon session at the new Thomas Jefferson High School at 4401 W. Cypress St until renovations of today's HHS building (built 1927–1928), were completed in 1976. The Class of 1977 was the first graduating class in the newly remodeled HHS Campus.

In 1979, HHS students had to pay for the chimes in the HHS clock tower. In 1980, a plaque was donated by the class of 1980, and mounted over the doorway leading to the inner courtyard from the trophy case area of the main building dedicated to the classes of the 1980s and "the Decade of New Ideas." During the early 1980s, HHS's student population swelled to over 3,000 students, spanning two campuses, referred to as North and South Campuses. HHS's South Campus included all of the buildings which now comprise Memorial Middle School, [11] adjacent to HHS on its south side.

In the mid-1980s, the Alumni Building, commonly referred to as the 400 Hall, was added to the school. In around 1995, another addition was made, the 500 Building/English Hall, in which most 10th grade homerooms and English classes are housed.

On May 3, 2008, HHS completed renovations to restore the high school to its pre-1960s luster, when it reopened its newly named gymnasium. In 2005, many classes were forced into portable classrooms during the renovation. The major improvements to HHS were divided between maintenance and restoration, and construction of a new gymnasium.

Previously, Hillsborough High's gym had been famously and affectionately known to Hillsborough High students and alums as the "Big Red Barn", more commonly "The Barn" probably due in part to its architectural design: its steep "skylighted" roof and red brick facade cause the gym to resemble a barn from a distance. "The Barn" was known for being a hostile environment for Terrier opponents to compete in, for the HHS student body seldom stood for anything short of winning. "The Barn" was one of the harshest gyms in the county to play in, as there was no air conditioning in it for many years. That, coupled with the loud fans and the many talented Terrier teams opposing schools had to face made "the Barn" a very difficult place to come out of with a win, much to the delight of generations of Hillsborough fans.

On May 3, 2008, a ceremony was held in Hillsborough High's newly remodeled gym to dedicate the gym, naming it the Don Williams Athletic Center, in honor of former HHS boys basketball coach Don Williams, who led the Terriers to a 2A state championship in 1959. Coach Williams went on to become the first South Florida Bulls men's basketball coach in 1970–71. Coach Williams was notified of the dedication prior to his death in February 2008. [12]


Adolphus and Sarah Goss lived at The Old Villa, in Alsager, Cheshire.

The Goss Family.

The Goss Memorial Window which was commissioned by the Parish Council of St Mary Magdalene Church, Alsager. The stained glass memorial window was for Raymond and Hubert Goss, both killed in the Great War. Beneath the window are the arms of Cheshire, and those of Adolphus Goss, their father. In the tracery, above are the Military Cross, the badges of the Cheshire and North Staffordshire Regiments and the 1914/15 Star. The brass plaque beneath the window reads,

'' To the Glory of God, and to the sacred memory of Sec Lt. Raymond GF Goss, 5th North Staffs, killed near Ypres, August 13th 1915, Sec Lt. Hubert J. Goss MC, 10th Cheshires, killed at the Somme, July 15th 1916, their beloved mother, Sarah Ellen Goss, who died July 14th 1919, and all their gallant friends and neighbours who laid down their lives in the Great War.&rdquo
