Have checked directories and I think he had a pine furniture business in manchester that has folded. I'm in touch with other gothard descendants and they have asked the question, (they are in the USA).

Hi. He is a half cousin (2nd I think). Our link is my great grandmother, Henrietta Conley. I'm a descendant of her first marriage to james taylor and he is a descendant from her second marriage to William Henry Gothard, in 1906. Thomas is his father's name too.
Thanks

How do you connect with him?

Was he married when you last saw him?

Have you checked www.192.com?

Or Friends Reunited?

Or search trees on here?

Hi
We're trying to find Tommy Gothard, last seen around 1973, manchester. He was born in 1947 so would be about 66 now. Can anyone help?
Thanks
