JOHNa GOCHENAUER was born on 20 November 1805. He married LYDIA ELLIOT, who was born on 11 November 1805. (Their birth and death dates are from their gravemarkers). In 1860 they were living in Providence Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where the Census reported the following family:

John Gouchnauer 54 M laborer $ 75 Penna
Lidia 54 F Penna.
Mary 24 F Penna
Martha 14 F Penna

The last two persons were probably Albert and Frank, the children of Mary, although Albert also appeared as Albert Martin in the household of Mary's sister Keziah Eckman.

John Gochenauer died on 31 August 1872; Lydia died on 7 August 1880. They were both buried at Smithville Church of God Cemetery, Providence Township.
