      === Marylanders to Carolina-Henry C. Peden, Jr.

      GOSLIN, EZEKIEL. From the diary of Rev. Joseph Powell in 1772:
      "That blessed man Ezekiel Goslin, a little before his decease,
      earnestly laid it on his son-in-law Dan. Smith's heart to bring
      his mother-in-law with her family to the Brethren in Carolina
      [from Carroll's Manor in Maryland]. Widdow Eliz Goslin hath two
      sons, one grown up, the youngest about 13 years old, and a
      daughter about 19, also 2 Negro boys." A later entry states
      "Widdow Goslin is Mrs. Smith's mother." (Ref: ALF II-720, 721).
      Ezekiel Goslin died in Frederick County, Maryland in August,
      1765. His widow, Elizabeth Goslin (1717-1802), was one of the
      founders of the Maryland Settlement at Hope, North Carolina in
      1772. Of her 10 children, Catherine Goslin (who married Daniel
      Smith), John Goslin, and Ezekiel Goslin moved with her to North
      Carolina (Ref: GER-117, 118, and noting that this Ezekiel Goslin
      should not be confused with the Ezekiel Goslin of the Nicholite
      Church in Caroline County, Maryland, at this same time).
