WILKES COUNTY, GEORGIA

Regarding the early history of Wilkes County, Col. Carroll Heard Goyne of Shreveport, Louisiana wrote:

“Part of the area that became Wilkes County was origin-ally called St. Paul’s Parish. The Ceded Lands were added in 1773, and in 1777 the area was named Wilkes County. The first fort built in the Ceded Lands was built in January 1773. It was located on Anderson’s Mill Creek, a tributary of Fishing Creek, north of present Washington, Georgia. My ancestor Charles Heard was one of the builders. He lived four miles from the fort, with no one living between him and the fort. Indians burned Charles’ home in 1776 and stole a Negro wo-man. That was the only slave he owned. It is my under-standing that during the Revolutionary War Wilkes County was sparsely settled. It was known as the “Hor-net’s Nest” because of the peoples’ strong opposition to the British. The Wilkes County Patriots defeated the Loyalists in the Battle of Kettle Creek in Wilkes County.”

William Goyne was one of the earliest to bear the name in Georgia. James Goyne, regarded as his brother, had preceded him to the state and may have influenced William Goyne to come to Georgia.

The colony, last to be established by the British in America, was chartered in 1732, and the first English settlement was made in 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe at Savannah. Oglethorpe. His trustees prohibited ownership of slaves in the colony, and the population grew slowly. In 1753 Oglethorpe’s charter expired, and Georgia became a royal colony. Immediately planters from Virginia and the Carolinas began settling in the Piedmont plateau of northern Georgia, bringing with them their slaves.

Phillip Going, a Wilkes County freeholder, was one of the first residents of Wilkes County of interest to Gowen chroniclers. He signed a petition to the Continental Congress on August 5, 1777, asking for the removal from command of General McIntosh, according to the research of Col. Goyne.

The population grew from the few hundred settlers that Oglethorpe introduced to 83,000 in 1790. Revolutionary soldiers were offered generous land grants in Georgia, and by 1830, when the Indians started moving west, over a half million people lived in Georgia, principally along the seacoast and the Savannah River which was established as the boundary with South Carolina.

William Goyne and his kinsmen simply crossed the Savannah River and obtained land in Wilkes County, Georgia. He was born about 1732 in Lunenburg County, Virginia, based on the tithe list of that county, according to the research of Col. Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr, a descendant of Shreveport, Louisiana. He lived in Rutherford County, North Carolina prior to his removing to Wilkes County.

William Goyne was first married about 1751 in Lunenburg County, wife’s name Hester. That is the year he first appeared on the tithe list as living apart from his father. His first wife’s name appears as Hester in an August 23, 1779 deed in Rutherford County, North Carolina.

When Warren County, Georgia was created, primarily with land from Wilkes County in 1793, “William Going, Moses Going and Jesse Going” were listed as taxpayers on the county’s first tax rolls in 1793.

“Abstracts of Tax Records for Wilkes County for 1785-1805,” list “Goings” [various spellings] as follows: Aaron, Drury, Hardy, Henry, James, Jesse, John, Moses, Reuben, Samuel, Thomas, William and William Jr.”

Col. Goyne wrote:

“Jesse was listed for 1793 only. He was living in Capt. Smith’s District [II-3] and was assessed one poll. Mo-ses was listed in 1793 as living in Capt. Hubbard’s Dis-trict [LL-14]. He was taxed on 500 acres in Wilkes County; 684 acres in Franklin County; and 208 acres in Greene County. In 1794 Moses was living in Capt. Hubbard’s District [LL-8] in Warren County. He was taxed on the same land, and paid one poll. William was not found in the tax list of 1793. In 1794 he was living in Capt. Hubbard’s District [LL-9] in Warren County and was assessed one poll.”

William Goyne was remarried about 1795 to Agnes Nancy Schroeder who was born in Pennsylvania in 1768 to Alexander Schroeder and Isabella Schroeder. William Goyne signed for a portion of Isabella Schroeder’s estate for Agnes Nancy Schroe-der Goyne in November 1796.

Regarding her surname, Col. Goyne wrote June 11, 2002:

“Agnes “Nancy” Stroder’s name is spelled in a variety of ways in the records. I have settled on the “Stroder” spelling because the original marriage documents for two of Nancy’s brother’s are in the North Carolina Ar-chives, and both documents show the name as “Stroder.” Also, a long-time Stroder researcher who spells her name “Strawder,” informed me that she believes the original spelling of her family name was Stroder.”

“William Goynne” was a resident of Warren County, January 4, 1816 when he wrote his will:

“The Last Will & Testament of William Goynne.

Apparently William Goynne died in the summer of 1817 be­cause his will was probated September 1, 1817, according to Warren County Will Book B, page 40.

Taliaferro County, located between Warren and Wilkes Coun­ties, was established in 1825, and some of the Goynes found themselves in the new county. Agnes Nancy Schroeder Goyne was enumerated there in the 1830 census as the head of a household composed of:

“Goyne, Nancy white female 50-60
white male 20-30
white male 10-15
free colored female 10-24”

Nearby was enumerated the household of her son, Hiram Davis Goyne.

In 1838 “Nancy Goyne” received a letter of dismission, along with her son Tyra Alexander Goyne and his wife “Polly” Goyne from the Baptist Church of Christ at Ebenezer, Georgia

Nancy Schroder Goyne was enumerated in the 1860 census of Union Parish, Louisiana living in the home of Henry Bradford Tyra Goyne, a grandson. He had arrived in Louisiana about 1849 and was recorded as the head of the household:

M. D. 39, born in Georgia, housewife
Stephen 12, born in Georgia
Susan 8, born in Louisiana

Rebecca Goyne, daughter of William Goyne, was born about 1753. She was married about 1770, husband’s name, Dick. They lived near her father in Rutherford and Lincoln Counties, North Carolina, but did not join him in removing to Georgia. Under the terms of her father’s will Rebecca Goyne Dick received $1.50.

Hardy Goyne, son of William Goyne and Hester Goyne, was born about 1771 in Granville County, North Carolina, according to the research of Ernest Pope Boland. He was married about 1793, wife’s name unknown. In 1793 they lived in Edgefield County, South Carolina. “Hardy Going,” a tax defaulter, was recorded in the tax roll on Capt. Turner’s District [MM-133].

In February 1801 “Caty Goin” was received into Island Creek Baptist Church of Hancock County, Georgia by letter from another church, probably in Warren County. On February 6, 1803 “Hardy Goin” was received into Island Creek Baptist Church also. He was restored to membership in the church June 3, 1808.

Col. Carroll Heard Goyne wrote, “Hardy was listed as a “wid-ow[er?]” in the November 25, 1797 edition of the “Augusta Chronicle.” This may explain why William Goyne listed Hardy’s two sons in his will, but did not list his other grand-children. It follows then that “Caty Goyne” of Hancock County church records was Hardy’s second wife, and not the mother of John and Mount Herman.”

Children born to Hardy Goyne and Caty Goyne are unknown.

Children born to Hardy Goyne and his first wife include:

John Goyne born about 1796

Their route led along the old road to Montevallo where they were joined by their surgeon, Dr. Mardis, former member of Congress, and where they camped the first night. Each man carried his own rations which had been prepared for him by loving hands before setting out.

Leaving Montevallo, they went directly to Montgomery, camping out one night. There they were received by the authorities and assigned to duty. There they were given arms and ammunition, and in a few days were on a rapid march for the Creek country.

Their service in the war was short, for the war itself was of short duration, being only three months, the period for which they had enlisted. The character of the service was in no respect different from that of ordinary frontier service; and there are no records of any particular acts of heroism accredited to this company or its members. But they were in several brief engagements, underwent without complaint, several forced marches, and several of its members were commended as skilled and brave in the execution of special duty assigned them.

The company lost none of its members by death, but unused to the sultry sun of the southern part of the state, in many there were planted the germs of fatal disease that made itself felt years afterward. They received as a reward for their services, the sum of $10 per month and their food. At or near Montgomery they were mustered out of service, and in straggling bodies, returned home, having tasted the glories of war and found it more dreadful than inviting.’

Who were these men, what of prominence did they achieve and what became of them? Harrison W. Goyne was a clerk of the County Court. In 1831 he sat for Jefferson County in the House of Representatives, and in 1836 he represented the county in the State Senate. After the return home, the Goyne brothers, Harrison and Andrew, nicknamed “Cull,” moved away. The only living member of this command, John Thompson, was born February 25, 1818, and hence will soon be in his seventy-fourth year.”

“Harrison Goyne” filed a Revolutionary claim with the Republic of Texas Secretary of State following the nation wresting independence from Mexico. The account was audited by James B. Johnson, according to a compilation prepared by the Texas State Library & Archives, Voucher No. 60, Microfilm Reel 52, Frame No. 310.

Larry E. Caver, Jr. transcribed a letter written February 3, 1876 to the editor of the “Birmingham Iron Age” which mentioned the death of Harrison W. Goyne in 1849 in Texas. The newspaper was published from 1874 to 1884.

“Excerpts of Interest from “The Birmingham Iron Age”

Tyler, Texas
January 19, 1876

Dear Editor Frank:

In your paper of the 13th instant, I observe an announce-ment headed ‘Historical’ in which you state that you will soon begin the publication of sketches of the lives of those who participated in the early settle-ment and in the political transactions of Jefferson County, Alabama. I shall await impartially the appearance of your sketches. To me they will possess, I know, an indescribable charm.

I wish I could contribute something towards aiding you in this proposed interesting feature of your paper. Many of those who participated in the public affairs of Jefferson County, in the early years of its settlement, came to Texas:

General Wood, Robert Emmet Bledsoe Baylor, John Brown, Harrison W. Goyne, Simpson Robinson, Thomas M. Adkins, Emory Loyd, Henry Click, Taylor Brown, Richard Tankersly and doubtless many others.

Of these above mentioned, all are dead except Henry Click, Taylor Brown and Simpson Robinson, and I am not sure that the last named is living, though he was a year or two ago. Taylor Brown is living near Henderson, about 30 miles from this place, and was as full of vitality and fun, about two weeks ago, when I saw him, as a [colored man] ever gets of religion–and you know that is so full that he runs over occasionally. Henry Click, who used to be the best rifle shot that could be found, lives in Cherokee County. I have not seen him for two or three years. Simpson Robin-son was living in Leon County a few years ago, and had been chief justice of the county.

General Wood, who participated in what is termed the “pine knot” battle, fought at Jonesboro long before you and I were born, died and was buried near Austin, Texas, many, many years ago; John Brown [Red] died not many years ago, at Brownsboro [named for him] in Henderson County, Texas, about 20 miles west of this place.

Harrison W. Goyne died in 1849 at Lockhart, Western Tex-as in Caldwell County; Emory Loyd died near Henderson, Rusk County, about 15 years ago; Robert E. B. Baylor died near Independence, Washington County, December 31, 1873; Major Adkins died near Larissa, Cherokee County, a few years ago;

Woodson Wade I ought to have mentioned also; he is dead too. Brown, Goyne, Adkins, Robinson, Wood, Loyd and Baylor, were in official line of life in Jefferson County. Loyd, Wood, John Brown and Goyne served in the Legisla-ture, and Baylor in the Congress of the United States. Bay-lor, Wood and John Brown served in the Congress of the Republic of Texas; Judge Baylor served for 25 years or more as District Judge.

I furnish you these facts, which you can dress up if you choose, and receive as my contribution.

Why don’t you pour hot shot and Greek fire into the Radical Camp? Have they quit stealing in Alabama?

Your friend very hurriedly, but truly,

Thomas Smith”

Edward Gresham, J. P. registered the deed July 25, 1796 in Wilkes County Deed Book OO, page 26. “John Gowin,” perhaps the brother of Drury O. Goyne, was a witness to the deed.

“Drury Going” was listed as a taxpayer in the 1796 tax list of Wilkes County. He paid taxes on 100 acres on Stephens Creek. Frank Parker Hudson of Atlanta, Georgia explained the number-ing system. The two letters designate the militia district, and the number following is the sequence number of the individual as entered on the tax list:

“Drury Going, 1796-Capt. Turner’s District [MM-7], 100 acres on Stephens Creek, joins Moses Stephens.”

Drury O. Goyne continued to appear in Wilkes County tax records for several years thereafter:

“1797-Capt. Turner’s District (MM-65), 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens.’

The records for 1798 for MM district are missing.

“1799-Capt. Turner’s District (MM-38), 100 acres on Ste-phen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens, granted to George Rut-ledge.

Drury O. Goyne was listed as a tax defaulter for 1799 in the April 12, 1800 edition of the “Augusta Chronicle.”

“1800–Capt. Ogletree’s District (MM-76), 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens, granted to George Rutledge.”

On September 11, 1801 “Drury [X] Goings” sold his 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek to David/Davis Saxon for $300. John Hen-drick and William Gammage witnessed the deed which was proved September 30, 1805, according to Wilkes County Deed Book VV, page 365.

He acquired 85 acres nearby on Stephen’s Creeek on which he paid taxes:

“1801–Capt. Ogletree’s District [MM-111], 85 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Wm. Evans, granted to George Rut-ledge.”

Drury O. Goyne was assessed one poll [no land] in 1802 in Capt. Ogletree’s District [MM-106] and perhaps the same in 1803. No tax records remain for the latter year.

Drury O. Goyne appeared to be single in 1797, but was married by 1802. It appears that he was the only son of William Goyne who remained in Georgia.

He was registered in the land lottery from there in 1803, No. 1188, according to the research of Timothy D. Hudson. In the lottery, it is noted that he received “Two Draws.” Two draws meant that he met certain requirements which were “free, white, 21, paid taxes, had 12 months residency in Ga., had wife and child.”

On May 20, 1803 he purchased land in Wilkes County, according to Deed Book UU, page 254:

“William Hammack conveyed to “Drury Goyne, both of Wilkes County, for $275, in Wilkes County on Rocky Creek waters, adjacent to Hail’s old line on bank of said creek, Spring Branch, to creek at head, down creek, 68 2/4 acres, being part of a tract granted to Joseph McCornmack, 9 April 1792.

William Hammack.
Witnesses:
Edward Gresham J.P.
Alexander Harper J.P.”

“Drury Goyen” was a witness to a deed April 15, 1804, ac­cording to Warren County Deed Book B, page 295. Drury Goyne of “Wilkerson County, Georgia” bought land in Baldwin County, Georgia January 10, 1809.

Drury O. Goyne was taxed on his Rocky Creek land in Wilkes County beginning in 1804:

“1804-Capt. Little’s District [RR-2], 68+ acres on Rocky Creek, joins Micajah Little, granted to Jos. Kelly.

1805-Capt. Young’s District (RR-3), 68+ acres on Rocky Creek, joins Micajah Little, granted to unknown.”

Drury O. Goyne entered the 1807 Land Lottery, and received two draws. Qualifications were the same as in 1803. Evident-ly, he was a fortunate drawer in the 1807 Land Lottery, as he was listed as living in Wilkinson County in 1809. He pur-chased land in Baldwin County January 10, 1809:

“Morgan County, Superior Court Deeds. Hardy Newson, Jr. of Warren County conveys to Drury Goyne of Wil-kinson County for $400, Lot 144, 2nd District, Baldwin County, 202.5 acres,” according to Morgan County Deed Book B, page 420. Witnesses were L. B. Little, John Goyne, his brother and Micajah Little.”

It is suggested that L. B. Little and Micajah Little were bro-thers-in-law with Drury O. Goyne.

He received, under the terms of his father’s will, written in 1816, $1.50 from the estate.

“Drury Goin” filed suit in 1810 in Clarke County, Georgia against William Blalock, according to the minutes of the Clarke County Court.

“Drury Goyen” was also listed as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Upson County, page 95. It appears that his son and his family were also living in his household:

The family was registered as:

“Drury Goyen white male 60-70
white female 60-70
white male 20-30
white female 20-30
*white male 0-5

*Philip C. Goins identifies this child as a son of Drury Goyne, Jr. and less than six months old.

The original parent county was Wilkes County. Greene County was formed from Wilkes County in 1786. Hancock County was formed from Greene County in 1793. Baldwin County was formed from Hancock County in 1803. Jones County was organized from Baldwin County in 1807. Monroe County was organized from Baldwin County in 1821. Pike County was organized from Monroe County in 1822. Upson County was organized from Pike County in 1824.

John Goyne, regarded as a son of William Goyne was born about 1760 probably in North Carolina. “John Gowin” was a witness to the deed of Abraham McAlhatten, Sr. when he transferred 100 acres of land to Drury O. Goyne December 12, 1795, according to Wilkes County Deed Book OO, page 26.

He was married about 1804, wife’s name Nancy. John Goyne and Micajah Little of Wilkes County were appointed as security for the administration of the estate of Isaac Tyson, deceased September 26, 1804.

John Goyne was referred to as John “Bitnose” Goyne in the 1807 Georgia Land Lottery. At the time he was living in John Young’s District of Wilkes County, according to “Early Records of Wilkes County, Georgia” Book 1.

On January 7, 1811, John Goyne and John Little, administrators of the estate of Micajah Little, resigned, according to “Early Records of Wilkes County, Georgia” Book 1. In 1816 John Goyne received $1.50 under the terms of his father’s will.

His three youngest sons reported in the 1850 census that they were born in North Carolina from about 1812 until about 1820.

“John Gowing” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1820 census of Greene County. “Jno. Goyen” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Upson County.

John Goyne was listed as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Jefferson County, Alabama page 164:

“Goyne, John white male 60-70
white female 50-60
white male 15-20
white male 10-15
white male 5-10”

John Goyne wrote his will April 27, 1839 in Jefferson County, and died there shortly afterward. His son John R. Goyne was named executor of the will which named “wife Nancy” as the widow of John Goyne. It was probated there November 27, 1839, according to Jefferson County Will Book 1818-1840, page 217.

Concerning the parentage of John Goyne, Charles Blakley, a descendant, wrote March 4, 2002 expressing doubt:

“I am a descendant of Harrison Goyne’s brother, John W. Goyne who was born in 1809 in Georgia. His parents were John and Nancy Goyne of Jefferson County, Alabama. I do not know that John was the son of the William Goyne who died in Warren County, Georgia. I have not found any in-formation identifying the parents of John and Nancy Goyne of Jefferson County. John died in 1839 in Jefferson County.”

Children born to John “Bit Nose” Goyne and Nancy Goyne include:

Harrison W. Goyne born about 1806
Sally Goyne born about 1808
John R. Goyne born February 18, 1809
Andrew C[olumus?] “Cull” Goyne born about 1813
J. W. Goyne born about 1815
Erasmus C. Goyne born about 1818

Harrison W. Goyne, son of John Goyne and Nancy Goyne, was born about 1806.

Harrison W. Goyne was listed as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Jefferson County, page 185. The household consisted of:

Goyne, Harrison W. white male 20-30
white female 30-40
white male 10-15
white female 10-15
white male 5-10
white female 5-10
white male 0-5
white female 0-5
white male 0-5″

He was a state senator from Jefferson County in the 1836-37 term. He was a lieutenant in the Mississippi militia in the Creek War. An article describing his military activities was published in the February 1992 edition of “Gowen Research Foundation Newsletter:”

Sen. Harrison W. Goyne Fought
In the Creek War of 1836

One hundred years ago this month, the efforts of Alabama Senator Harrison W. Goyne to raise a militia company to fight in the 1836 Creek War were described in a newspaper article. Capt. James McAdory and First Lt. Harrison W. Goyne commanded the company and were mentioned prominently in the newstory which appeared in February 17, 1892 edition of the “Birmingham Age-Herald.”

Harrison W. Goyne, son of John Goyne and Nancy Goyne, was born about 1806, probably in Warren County, Georgia. His grandfather, William Goyne had appeared in the area about 1790, based on tax records. His family removed to Jefferson County, Alabama about the time of the War of 1812.

Harrison W. Goyne was married there November 8, 1823 to Mrs. Elizabeth Riley Crawford, widow of Samuel Crawford and daughter of Joseph Riley, according to Jefferson County Marriage Book 1, pp 2 and 3. His father was his security. The will of Joseph Riley written June 7, 1826 bequeathed “my negro girl, Mary and $50 to Harrison W. Goyne for my daughter, Elizabeth Goyne,” according to Jefferson County will records.

About 1828, Harrison W. Goyne was elected clerk of the county court at Elyton. He was enumerated there as the head of a household in the 1830 census along with Benjamin Goyne, James Goyne and John Goyne, his father. In 1831 Harrison W. Goyne was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives from Jefferson County.

On September 17, 1832 Harrison W. Goyne “of Jefferson County” filed on Section 33, Township 18, Range 4W in adjoining Tuscaloosa County, according to “Old Tuscaloosa Land Office Records and Military Warrants, 1821-1855,” by Marilyn Davis Barefield.

He was a state senator from Jefferson County in the 1836-37 term. Harrison W. Goyne was identified as a “speculator of Elyton” when he was chosen as first lieutenant in the Jefferson County militia company commanded by Capt. McAdory, a planter of Jonesboro in the Creek War. His younger brother, Andrew C. “Cull” [Columbus?] Goyne served as a private in the same company which was incorporated into the Fourth Alabama Mounted Volunteers, according to “Index to Compiled Service Records, Alabama Units, Creek War, 1836-1837” by Achee and Wright. Capt. McAdory later became a colonel in the militia.

“Jefferson County Soldiers Braved
The Creek Indians in the Old Days”

By Thomas M. Owen
It is now almost 56 years, over half a century, since in the spring of 1836, Jefferson County equipped and sent out a brave and gallant company of mounted infantry to assist in protecting the inhabitants of east and southeast Alabama from Indian Savages and depredations. In the swift transit of the years its members have all gone to their last resting places, save one, and though brave in word and deed, loving their country and fighting for its protection, history contains no record of them, save in the following paragraph, which appears in a short sketch of Jefferson County by B. E. Grace, Sr, one of Jefferson County’s oldest and most honored citizens, vis:

‘About the year 1836, great excitement was caused in Jefferson County in consequence of the hostile attitude of the Seminole and Creek Indians, especially the latter. The treaty which had been recently concluded between the general Government and Indians, for their removal to the west, caused a great dissatisfaction among a large portion of them, and several murders were committed between Montgomery and Columbus, Georgia and other outrages which finally resulted in a state of war.

The governor made a call for volunteers, and Jefferson County, as usual in such cases, responded promptly, and a company of near 100 men was soon raised, and James McAdory was elected captain. I forgot the names of the other officers, or I should gladly give them, as they were a gallant set of boys and spent a hot summer in the sickly climate, at that time, of South Alabama, serving faithfully till the object of the campaign was accomplished and the hostile Creeks were captured and sent via Montgomery and Mobile by water to their new homes.

The captain and most of his men returned, but several contracted disease which finally proved fatal. The only survivor referred to above is Mr. John Thompson, a farmer living in Shade’s Valley, a few miles southeast of Bessemer, through whom many facts and incidents concerning this company are rescued from perishing.

Elyton was the county site, and the center of public spirit and intelligence as well, of Jefferson County; and when the call for volunteers was received, immediate steps were taken to call together those willing to enlist and lend assistance.

The call was distributed and the meeting to consider it was held at the county court house about April 1, 1836, when after perfection of arrangements and election of officers, all returned home to make ready for again assembling in Elyton preparatory for leaving.

The next week found a large number of men assembled, each one mounted on his own horse, ready for the march. No one, not even the officers, wore a uniform; but almost every one wore a wool hat, linsey shirt and suit of substantial homespun jeans. They remained one night in Elyton, a part lodged in the old Mallory Tavern, and a part were scattered among the hospitable homes of Col. John Martin, Williamson Hawkins and others.

Just before leaving Capt. McAdory marched his company up to the home of James Mudd, when Miss Mary Mudd, on behalf of the citizens of Elyton, presented them with a beautiful flag. The captain accepted in a few words; and soon afterwards, they rode away, leaving sad hearts behind them, but followed by good wishes and earnest prayers.

Their route led along the old road to Montevallo where they were joined by their surgeon, Dr. Mardis, former member of Congress, and where they camped the first night. Each man carried his own rations which had been prepared for him by loving hands before setting out.

Leaving Montevallo, they went directly to Montgomery, camping out one night. There they were received by the authorities and assigned to duty. There they were given arms and ammunition, and in a few days were on a rapid march for the Creek country.

Their service in the war was short, for the war itself was of short duration, being only three months, the period for which they had enlisted. The character of the service was in no respect different from that of ordinary frontier service; and there are no records of any particular acts of heroism accredited to this company or its members. But they were in several brief engagements, underwent without complaint, several forced marches, and several of its members were commended as skilled and brave in the execution of special duty assigned them.

The company lost none of its members by death, but unused to the sultry sun of the southern part of the state, in many there were planted the germs of fatal disease that made itself felt years afterward. They received as a reward for their services, the sum of $10 per month and their food. At or near Montgomery they were mustered out of service, and in straggling bodies, returned home, having tasted the glories of war and found it more dreadful than inviting.’

Who were these men, what of prominence did they achieve and what became of them? Harrison W. Goyne was a clerk of the County Court. In 1831 he sat for Jefferson County in the House of Representatives, and in 1836 he represented the county in the State Senate. After the return home, the Goyne brothers, Harrison and Andrew, nicknamed “Cull,” moved away. The only living member of this command, John Thompson, was born February 25, 1818, and hence will soon be in his seventy-fourth year.”

“Harrison Goyne” filed a Revolutionary claim with the Republic of Texas Secretary of State following the nation wresting independence from Mexico. The account was audited by James B. Johnson, according to a compilation prepared by the Texas State Library & Archives, Voucher No. 60, Microfilm Reel 52, Frame No. 310.

Larry E. Caver, Jr. transcribed a letter written February 3, 1876 to the editor of the “Birmingham Iron Age” which mentioned the death of Harrison W. Goyne in 1849 in Texas. The newspaper was published from 1874 to 1884.

“Excerpts of Interest from “The Birmingham Iron Age”

Tyler, Texas
January 19, 1876

Dear Editor Frank:

In your paper of the 13th instant, I observe an announce-ment headed ‘Historical’ in which you state that you will soon begin the publication of sketches of the lives of those who participated in the early settle-ment and in the political transactions of Jefferson County, Alabama. I shall await impartially the appearance of your sketches. To me they will possess, I know, an indescribable charm.

I wish I could contribute something towards aiding you in this proposed interesting feature of your paper. Many of those who participated in the public affairs of Jefferson County, in the early years of its settlement, came to Texas:

General Wood, Robert Emmet Bledsoe Baylor, John Brown, Harrison W. Goyne, Simpson Robinson, Thomas M. Adkins, Emory Loyd, Henry Click, Taylor Brown, Richard Tankersly and doubtless many others.

Of these above mentioned, all are dead except Henry Click, Taylor Brown and Simpson Robinson, and I am not sure that the last named is living, though he was a year or two ago. Taylor Brown is living near Henderson, about 30 miles from this place, and was as full of vitality and fun, about two weeks ago, when I saw him, as a [colored man] ever gets of religion–and you know that is so full that he runs over occasionally. Henry Click, who used to be the best rifle shot that could be found, lives in Cherokee County. I have not seen him for two or three years. Simpson Robin-son was living in Leon County a few years ago, and had been chief justice of the county.

General Wood, who participated in what is termed the “pine knot” battle, fought at Jonesboro long before you and I were born, died and was buried near Austin, Texas, many, many years ago; John Brown [Red] died not many years ago, at Brownsboro [named for him] in Henderson County, Texas, about 20 miles west of this place.

Harrison W. Goyne died in 1849 at Lockhart, Western Tex-as in Caldwell County; Emory Loyd died near Henderson, Rusk County, about 15 years ago; Robert E. B. Baylor died near Independence, Washington County, December 31, 1873; Major Adkins died near Larissa, Cherokee County, a few years ago;

Woodson Wade I ought to have mentioned also; he is dead too. Brown, Goyne, Adkins, Robinson, Wood, Loyd and Baylor, were in official line of life in Jefferson County. Loyd, Wood, John Brown and Goyne served in the Legisla-ture, and Baylor in the Congress of the United States. Bay-lor, Wood and John Brown served in the Congress of the Republic of Texas; Judge Baylor served for 25 years or more as District Judge.

I furnish you these facts, which you can dress up if you choose, and receive as my contribution.

Why don’t you pour hot shot and Greek fire into the Radical Camp? Have they quit stealing in Alabama?

Your friend very hurriedly, but truly,

Thomas Smith”

“In the last five years my husband, Ed, and I have been involved in having markers placed at my third great grand-parents grave in Meriwether County, Georgia. And we also placed markers at my great grandparents’ and two great aunts’ gravesite in Ashley County, Ar-kansas. These were for Rev. Creed Caldwell and Ra-chel Clayton Caldwell of Georgia and Rev. George W. Caldwell and Mary Elizabeth Goyne Caldwell of Arkansas. Also included were my great aunts, Julia Caldwell Norris and Cynthia Caldwell Scott.

When we were researching at the Courthouse in Meriweth-er County, we were looking for the cemetery location of my third great grandparents. The local cousins did not know the location. My husband, a pro-fessional land surveyor, found the location where they lived in the land records, and I found a cemetery book in the Probate Court Office and wrote down the infor-mation of a Caldwell-Williams Cem-etery.

We put our information together, and voila, we knew where the cemetery was. When we arrived out on a country road out of Durand, Georgia on Georgia-Pa-cific property. We walked up to the top of a wooded hill, and in those woods was the Cemetery, and we found their graves along with three of their babies and a son and his wife. We came back to Texas and had a sign made to place at the Cemetery. I had called Geor-gia-Pacific and received permission to do this.

I felt Creed and Rachel’s presence so strongly and I knew they were happy we had found them.

In Arkansas, the old marker at Rev. George W. Cald-well’s gravesite was broken and becoming unreadable. We had a local company in Ashley County place a marker in the cen-ter of the four graves.

We did not receive any tangible rewards for doing this, but we had our reward in the way it made us feel.”

Other thoughts:
I will send you family group sheets on my direct Goyne line by regular mail.

I have a listing of the free-persons-of-color residing in Columbia County, Georgia that was published in the March 10, 1819 Augusta Chronicle. They appear to be the family of Moses Going, Sr. Let me know if you can use it.

Carroll H. Goyne, Jr.

It is believed that Moses Going died about 1817 and that Ag-nes Going survived him. When the “free persons of color” were required to register in Georgia in 1819, she stated to the Columbia County Court clerk that she was 66 years old and had arrived in Georgia in 1787.

Other individuals of interest to Going/Gowen chroniclers also appeared in the “free persons of color” registration. The list of “free blacks,” compiled by W. L. Kennon, county court clerk, was printed in the “Augusta Chronicle & Gazette” in its edition of March 10, 1819:

Individual Born Arrived Age Profession

William Going VA 1777 50 Millwright
William Going GA 19 Farmer [son of William]
Sally Going VA 1790 52 Weaver
Polly Going GA 25 Weaver
Wyat Going GA 28 Blacksmith
Nancey Going GA 23 Weaver
Lucinda Going GA 21 Weaver
Sally Going GA 9
Agness Going VA 1787 66
Patsey Going GA 34 Weaver
[her children]
Thomas Going GA 4
John Going GA 2
Nancey Going GA 27 Weaver
Moses Going [Jr.] VA 1789 45 Farmer
Elizabeth Going GA 8
Sherwood Going GA 11

Two years later, H. Lamar, the County Court Clerk, compiled another list of “free blacks” in Columbia County. It was pub-lished in the August 6, 1821 edition of the “Augusta Chron-icle & Gazette:”

Individual Age Born Yrs. in GA Profession
Moses Going 46 VA 30 Farmer
Billy Going 53 VA 35 Millwright
Sarah Going 58 VA 34 Weaver
Nancy Going 22 GA 22 Weaver
Polly Going 26 GA 26 Weaver
Lucinda Going 20 GA 20 Weaver
Sally Going 11 GA 11 Weaver

Children born to Moses Going and Agnes Going are believed to include:

Anne Going born about 1763
John Going born about 1765
Reuben Going born about 1766
Jesse Going born about 1767
James Going born about 1768
Elizabeth Going born about 1769

Sherwood Going born about 1772
Moses Going, Jr. born about 1774
Thomas Going born about 1775
Frances “Fanny” Going born about 1785
John H. Going born about 1787

Anne Going, [Moses6, Agnes5, Edward, Jr.4, Edward3, Wil-liam2, Mihil1] daughter of Moses Going and Agnes Going, was born about 1763 in Louisa County. She was brought to Henrico County by her mother about 1788. She was a witness to the marriage of David Going and Chloe Webb there July 17, 1789. She “being of lawful age, daughter of Agnes Goine” was married in Henrico County to Dudley Miner December 22, 1795 while her father was away in Georgia. Meredith Childers, brother-in-law to the bride, was surety. The Miner family later removed to Hancock County, Tennessee, along with the Goins family.
