I decided to write more about each of my ancestors on their birth, marriage, or a death anniversary. This week I will remember my great-granduncle August Gossmann. August’s life was a short one as he only lived 8 months before he passed away on 25 July 1904 in Wehlheiden, Kassel, Germany.
He was born on 28 November 1903 in Wehlheiden, Kassel, Germany and was the thirteenth child born to Wilhelm Gossmann and Anna Elisabeth Brand .

While August’s life was short I wanted to take today to remember him on the 118th anniversary of his death.
August’s church baptism and burial records were also located to confirm August’s death date since only his burial record was recorded in the Gossmann Family book. August’s death date was recorded as the 25 July 1904 in Wehlheiden, Kassel, Germany. The only information I had on August before deciding to write the blog was his birth and burial date from the Gossmann Family Book.
While I am a couple days late for the anniversary of August’s death I think it is important to remember all our ancestors who died young.
