In order to take a more global look, I went to Linkpendium's Goosic page.
* Findagrave reports 54 Goosic graves, mostly in Nebraska, some in Iowa, Wyoming and other places.
* Ysearch reports that someone is doing a Ydna study of the Goosic line! That's exciting.
* GOOSIC (G220) at ROOTSWEB
* FamilySearch yields 412 results for Name: Goosic. Some of those are immigrants from various countries in Europe, so it seems we have a few very different lines of Goosics.
Linkpendium also yielded some pages such as this, which I got via FTP (excerpted):

Findagrave seems a very rich source, and I'll continue to use it to find my elusive ancestors and other relatives. Linkpendium itself is so rich! If you are not using it, you are losing out.
