For Liz Davis,
Hi, I read your posting (obituary) on while conducting research on the Gouldsmith family. I couldn't help but notice that Giles was an Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of LDS member (now Community of Christ). I am too. I feel certain that he is related somehow in the large family scheme of things and was wondering if you might have any information dating back to the 1800's on Gilbert David (or Davis) Gouldsmith married to Abigail Durfee. I am new to researching and am finding it quite intriguing and a bit more work than I had originally thought. Hope to hear from you.
