My Grandfather (Ralph Warner) had property in Goshen, quite a few acres, 100 or more. He had a coal mine close to where we used to live (on Goshen Hill Rd.) and had horses pull the coal wagons. My mom (Faye) who was Ralph’s daughter, lived with and cared for her dad until his death. Faye’s sister was Agnes Warner Wolfe. She and her husband Edward Wolfe, also lived in Goshen. Edward Warner (Bertie’s husband) was another of Ralph’s children but was raised by an aunt, Laura Carlisle. Another brother, Ralph Warner, had for awhile sold Warner’s Eggs, near Stonecreek. His wife was Erma.
As far as I know, all of my brothers and sisters were born in Goshen and lived there most of their lives, added Cope, who enclosed a list of her family as follows: Shirley Maurer Davis married Richard L. Davis (“Red” as he was often called, passed away about 3 years ago) They had two children, Michael R. Davis and Christopher D. Davis and wife Lori (Roth) Davis; Warner E. Maurer married Rowena Maurer and they had three children Sherri L. Maurer, Cindy S. Maurer and Douglas Maurer; Jim Maurer; Treva Sue Maurer Cope married LeRoy D. Cope and had two daughters, Staci S. Cope and Tricia F. McKinney; Rick Maurer married Bambi and had two children, Erin Maurer (Brian) Gersting and Jason Maurer.
There was a paragraph about the Maurer family in “Recollections of a Community, Part 1” (published in 1997) and reads as follows: Paul W. and Thelma Faye Warner Maurer moved to Goshen about 61 years (now would be 86 years) ago from the New Philadelphia area to reside with Faye’s father, Ralph Warner, in his Goshen Hill Road home. Ralph was a coal miner and had many mines dotting his 100 acre property. Paul and Faye later moved down the road to another home where they raised their five children.
