There is a lot of inaccuracies surrounding this geneological line, particularly in regards to when each was born. There is debate as to where and when James Goss was born. Some sources claim it was in 1700 in England and others claim it was in 1715 in Virginia. Both sources claim he is the son of Charles, the father of Elizabeth and that he died in 1778. No source is proven, but the more trustworthy and popular claim is that he was born in about 1715 in Virginia. This however means his father was at least 60 when James was born, if the year of his father's birth is accurate, which again seems to be incorrect.
