Alfred N. Gossett

Alfred N. Gossett, one of the most substantial members of the bar, was born at Sharpsburgh, Ky., November 13, 1861.  His father and mother came to Jackson County in 1857, and it was in the schools near Independence that Mr. Gossett first became familiar with books.  He was graduated from Woodland College in 1880, and then went to Washington University, St. Louis, graduating with first honors from the law department there   in 1883.  The same year he began to practice law at Kansas City, forming with J. D. S. Cook what has the distinction of being the oldest law firm of unchanged name in the city.

     Mr. Gossett was married in Kansas City November 23, 1887, to Miss Daisy Vera Galbaugh, now deceased.  One child, Gale Galbaugh Gossett, is living.

      Mr. Gossett is a prominent member of the Bar Association and of the Kansas City Club.  He is a son of the Rev. Jacob D. Gossett, late of Independence, Mo., and a brother of Martin R. Gossett, Recorder of Deeds.
