The West Virginia Journal
Wednesday, April 24, 1872

DAVID GOSHORN
On Friday last the announcement of the death of our fellow citizen, Mr. David Goshorn, produced an excitement
among our people scarcely ever produced by the death of a citizen.
Mr. Goshorn was one of our best friends. He was a gentleman and a good citizen, and an honest man. He was the youngest of five brothers, every one of whom is noted for his integrity. The word of either one of the Messrs. Goshorn is as good as their note.
