Jochim Goettsch, an old resident of Rockingham, died at his home there Thursday, aged about 70 years. Mr. Goettsch was a bachelor. He was a farmer in former days, and had before that been a miner in the west. He accumulated quite a comfortable property throught his exertions, and was able to live comfortably. His relatives are his brother, Hans Asmus Goettsch of New Liberty, and a sister whose residence is not known. (this is typed as written in paper. Also, Rockingham is/was a part of Davenport.)

The Gold Ring 23 February 2006 - 6:41:45am

"I don't remember any more which of the brothers of Henry's or maybe a brother of Han's went west to partake in the gold rush. Which ever of the brothers it was returned with a mans ring made of pure gold. It was to be passed down to the oldest Goettsch boy of the family. My grandfather Edward had the ring and when he died my father Earl was given the ring. When my father died my mother gave the ring to Loren because my parents had no sons. As far as I know we never knew what happened to this relative. Maybe Aunt Marj would know more about this story."

This is a great story. Thanks Donna. A possible source of the Gold Ring may be Joachim Gottsch Han's brother. Click on his name above and study the sources. The 1880 US Census shows him living with Hans and Anna. The 1870 US Census shows a Joseph Gottsch working at the Cedar Creek Mine at Missoula, Montana. If any one can shed light on the Gold Ring story, please do.

Note: This home is part of the Hans A Goettsch addition…

This home is part of the Hans A Goettsch addition to the town of New liberty, and is located at 630 Main Street, New Liberty. The land for the addition was part of the Goettsch farm in section 20 and was likely the first home of 10 or 12 homes built on this addition. This house is located about 600 to 800 feet from Hans and Anna's farm house, and other farm buildings of which parts are still standing or incorporated into newer structures today.

This home, pictured here, is likely their retirement home, and I would estamate it was built sometime around 1900 to 1905 as Scott county records show that Peter Fink owned the Goettsch farm in 1905.
