The Goheen genealogy is an on going project started about 20 years ago. Needless to say this project mushroomed into a full time hobby. Many weeks each year were spent at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. If you desire more information, please contact me.
Any errors in this genealogy should be reported to the compiler mentioned at the bottom of the page. Several years ago a Goheen contacted me desiring to more about his ancestors. His ancestors have been traced back to Ireland. Thomas W. and family entered Canada and proceeded immediately to Erin, Washington County, Wisconsin, in 1847. This family agreeded to a DNA analysis and it matches the DNA from the John Goheen descendant that emigrated into Philadelphia in early 1700. Two other Goheen emigrants to America also came from Ireland according to census data
The original John Goheen descendants split into two groups during the Revolutionary War One group the Loyalists moved to the Bristol area and after the war one brother went to Canada. This line has been well documented and published. I did not want to reinvent the wheel. My efforts concentrated on the United States Goheen's.
Several branches from the early Goheen's in Pennsylvania have not been connected; mainly the Birdsboro Goheen's. My theory stems from the naming patterns, and Goheen families living in close contact. This is the Edward Goheen descendants of York County and can be seen in the descendant chart.
