When Bertha L. Gosnell was born in May 1890, in Greenville, South Carolina, United States, her father, George Ira Gosnell, was 23 and her mother, Nettie Ann Atkins, was 21. She had at least 3 sons and 3 daughters with Benjamin Franklin Huff. She lived in O'Neal, Greenville, South Carolina, United States in 1910 and Greenville, Greenville, South Carolina, United States for about 10 years. She died on 15 February 1961, at the age of 70, and was buried in Woodlawn Memorial Park, Greenville, Greenville, South Carolina, United States.
perhaps a habitational name from Goss Hall, in Ash, Kent, recorded as Gosehale in 1210–12 and as Gosenhale (in a surname) in 1230. It may have denoted ‘Gosa's nook of land’ (Old English Gōsa, genitive singular Gōsan + halh, dative singular hale). By the early 1200s a member of this Kent family had apparently acquired property in Fritton, Suffolk, where the surname subsequently ramified in the later medieval and early modern periods.
apparently a habitational name from Gonsal, in Condover, Shropshire, but the place name is recorded in medieval documents only as a manorial surname (de Gosenhull) and it is possible that the place was named after a 13th-century owner who came from elsewhere. On heraldic grounds the Shrops family has been tentatively identified with the Suffolk/Kent family in 1 above. The early spellings of the Shrops name, however, consistently point to a derivation from Old English hyll ‘hill ’, thus ‘Gosa's hill’, not ‘Gosa' s nook of land’. While the possibility cannot be ruled out that Gosenhull was a local re-interpretation of Gosenhale, the linguistic and the heraldic evidence are not easily reconciled.
