Francis Gooch Withers FRANCIS GOOCH WITHERS

Francis Gooch Withers, the youngest child of Rev. John Withers and Syrena Wallace, was born 02 June 1858 in Union Co., KY; died 29 February 1928 in Kentucky. He is buried in Rock Springs Cemetery, Webster Co., KY. He was from a large family, yet his children are the only male heirs. All of the others had daughters and/or sons who died without heirs.

Gooch, as he was called, was a talented man, but never seemed to stay with one job for long. He married Sarah Katherine Imboden, born 1863, and they lived most of their married life on a farm on the Tradewater River, near Providence, KY, which Katherine inherited from her father. He and Katherine are buried at Rock Springs Cemetery, in Webster Co., KY.
