I found this on ancestry.com -Gosnell: Originally Irish, from an Irish adaptation (Góiséir) of English Hosier, the name of a family in Munster in the late 16th century. Roland: from a Germanic personal name composed hrod ‘renown’ + -nand ‘bold’, assimilated to -lant ‘land’. Compare Rowland.

Thank you.I have been to ancestry.com and saw what I could for free. I was speaking to my grandmother and from what she told me, the Gosnell woman in question was Scots/Irish, and Roland was from Wales. Now that obviously does not mean that they couldn't have relocated or something like that. Thanks again, I appreciate it!
