Gershom Goble's actual birthdate is unknown, but probably around 1733, based on the inscription on his headstone stating he was 75 at his death in 1808.

He married Ann Roy.

He died in 1808 and was buried in Yellow Frame Church Cemetery, Frelinghuysen Township, Warren County, New Jersey[1].

Goble Ancestors Some researchers believe that WILLIAM GOBLE and JOHN GOBLE were brothers. JOHN GOBLE was born 1536 in France and died 1609 in West Sussex, England. He apparently left France in 1560 to avoid religious persecution and settled in England. If WILLIAM and JOHN were really brothers and JOHN didn't leave France until 1560, then it's reasonable to assume that WILLIAM would have been born in France as well. Yet, all research I've seen points to WILLIAM being born in England. Was WILLIAM really born in England or was he born in France? Both WILLIAM'S and JOHN'S descendants are born in the same area in England, both have sons named William and John and both their descendants travel to the same area in Massachusetts about the same time. It does seem to point to the two being brothers. Does anyone have any evidence to back this up?

Generation No. 1 WILLIAM GOBLE was born about 1540 in Westergate, Sussex, England or France and died in April and buried, May 1, 1593 in Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England. Children of WILLIAM GOBLE are: i. WILLIAM GOBLE, b. 1582, Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England; christened February, 1583 ii. JOANNA GOBLE, b. November 3, 1585, Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England; d. April 25, 1593 iii. ELIZABETHA GOBLE, b. April 14, 1588, Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England; d. unknown iv. JOHN GOBLE, b. before 1590, Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England; d. unknown v. THOMAS GOBLE, b. 1591, Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England; d. December 29, 1657, Concord, Massachusetts

Generation No. 2 THOMAS GOBLE (WILLIAM GOBLE1) was born in 1589 (christened January 4, 1590) in Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England and died December 29, 1657 in Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. He married 1) ALICE BROOKMAN, November 5, 1619 in Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England. She was born about 1600 in Sussex, England and died before 1628 in Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Notes for THOMAS GOBLE THOMAS imigrated to Massachusetts from England in 1634. As far as I know, Thomas Goble was the first Goble in this country (of my line of Goble's). He settled in Charlestown, Massachusetts in 1634 but moved to Concord at some point and that is where he died. There is some disagreement as to his wife's maiden name. I believe it was Alice Brookman; others believe it was Mousall. There is a marriage record showing Thomas Goble and Alice Brookman being married November 5, 1619 at Aldingbourne. There is also a baptismal record for Thomas dated 1590 that appears to show him to be the son of William Goble of Westergate. Assuming Thomas was a baby when he was baptized, that would have made him 29 at the time of his marriage and 67 when he died in 1657.

Thomas was a wealthy and respected person in Charlestown and in Concord as well. His house in Concord was still standing in 1904 but I'm uncertain if it still stands today. Children of THOMAS GOBLE and ALICE BROOKMAN are: i. JOHN GOBLE, b. about 1630, Aldingbourne, England ii. ELIZABETH GOBLE, b. 1634, Charlestown, Massachusetts; m. JOHN WHITE iii. THOMAS GOBLE, JR., b. about 1635, Charlestown, Massachusetts iv. MARY GOBLE, b. February 27, 1636, Charlestown, Massachusetts v. SARAH GOBLE, b. May 27, 1638, Charlestown, Massachusetts; d. November 30, 1717 vi. DANIEL GOBLE, b. July 18, 1641, Charlestown, Massachusetts; d. September 26, 1676, Boston, Massachusetts

Generation No. 3 DANIEL GOBLE (THOMAS GOBLE2) was born July 18, 1641 in Charlestown, Massachusetts and died September 26, 1676 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He married HANNAH BREWER February 25, 1663 in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, daughter of JOHN BREWER and ANN. She was born January 18, 1645 in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and died September 11, 1697 in Lancaster, Worchester County, Massachusetts. Child of DANIEL GOBLE is: i. DAVID GOBLE, b. May 21, 1669, Concord, Massachusetts; d. about 1733, Morristown, New Jersey Descendants of Thomas Goble I
