GRANVILLE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA

Colonial North Carolina, particularly Granville County, was an area where a good relationship existed between whites and “free colored individuals.” A number of prominent individuals petitioned the state legislature for tax relief for inter-racial marriages, according to “Colonial and State Records of North Carolina,” Volume 5, [1755]:

“Records of the Legislature: The petition of sundry Inhabitants of the Counties of Northampton, Edge­combe, and Granville was read, setting forth that by the Laws now in force, free negroes and Mulattoes In­termarrying with white women are obliged to pay Taxes for their Wives and Families Praying Relief etc, on which the House Resolved that the Matters in the said petition contained are reasonable and that the Committee appointed to Revise the Laws receive a Clause or Clauses to be inserted in the laws for their relief.”

The matter was taken up again by the legislature in 1762, ac­cording to Volume 6:

“To the Worshipful the Speaker and Gentlemen of the Assembly. The petition of Sundry of the Inhabitants of the Counties of Northampton, Edgecombe and Granville Humbly Sheweth:

That by one Act of the Assembly passed in the year 1723, Intitled ‘An Act for an Additional Tax on all free Negroes, Mulattoes, Mustees and such Persons, Male & Female, as now are or hereafter shall be intermarried with any such Person resident in the Government. It was enacted That all free Negroes etc, that were or should thereafter be Inhabitants of this Province being of the Age of twelve Years & upwards should be deemed Tythables and as such should yearly pay the same Levies and Taxes as other Tythable Inhabitants.”

That many Inhabitants of the sd Counties who are Free Negroes & Mulattoes and persons of Probity & good Demeanor and chearfully contribute towards the Dis­charge of every Public Duty injoined them by Law. But by reason of being obliged by the sd Act of As­sembly to pay Levies for their Wives and Daughters as therein mentioned are greatly Impoverished and many of them rendered unable to support themselves and Families with the common Necessaries of Life.

Wherefore your Petitioners would humbly pray in be­half of the Sd free Negroes etc, That so much of the said recited Act as compels such of them as Intermarry with those of their own complection to pay Taxes for their Wives & Daughters may be repealed or that they may be other relieved as to your Worships in your great Wisdom seem meet. And you Petitioners as in Duty bound shall ever pray, etc.”

Historians sometime refer to mulattos in this area as Melun­geons. Colonial recorders, upon occasion, listed them as “white” and, at other times, recorded them as mulattos because of the color of their skin. The term “Melungeon” was a more recent appellation and was probably not widely used in colo­nial times. A large colony of Melungeons by the name of Gowen [and other spelling variations] existed in Melungia, the area where Virginia, Tennesseee, North Carolina and Kentucky come together.

JACKSON COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA

Robert Bushyhead, son of Benjamin Bushyhead and Nancy Goings Bushyhead, died August 1, 2001, according to his obituary in the “Sylva Herald:”

“Bushyhead, Preserver of Kituhwa Dialect, Dies

By Rose Hooper

“Born about 1915 and raised in a one-room log cabin in the Qualla Boundary’s Birdtown community, Robert Bushyhead grew up speaking the Cherokee language, the sole language of his family.

When he went to government boarding school, he was punished for speaking Cherokee. Family and friends say Bushyhead, who developed a passion for the history and culture of his people, spent the rest of his life overcoming that period of punishment.

He became principal founder, linguist and historian for the Cherokee Language Project. This noted preserver of the Kituhwa dialect died Saturday at the age of 86. Son of the late Ben and Nancy Goings Bushyhead, he was a graduate of Carson Newman College and an ordained Southern Baptist minister. His resounding voice was heard at many a Cherokee gathering as he delivered a prayer or blessing in his native Kituhwa dialect.

In 1996, the North Carolina Arts Council chose Bushyhead for the North Carolina Folk Heritage Award. The award, presented to traditional artists who have made outstanding contributions to North Carolina’s cultural heritage, marked Bushyhead’s achievements in preserving the Kituhwa dialect. The dialect is one of at least four dialects recognized among today’s speakers of the Cherokee language.

In the 1970s Bushyhead worked with linguist Bill Cook to save the original Cherokee language. In 1992, the endeavor took on a whole new context as Bushyhead began making a series of videotaped linguistic lessons. Those recordings became his life’s work as each day he and his daughter and a local videographer recorded the sounds of the native language along with its grammar.

Bushyhead explained that all the complicated and intricate inflections and glottal stops in speaking Kituhwa are precisely timed. Vowel sounds and sentence structure mean nothing when spoken incorrectly, he said.

His Kituhwa project was featured in 1994 at the opening ceremonies of the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, where a demonstration tape of the lessons and a sample of the voiced-computer dictionary was on display.

The videotapes were presented in lesson format at the kindergarten level and extended through high school grades.

‘No other language sounds exactly like it,’ Bushyhead often said. ‘We have 85 sounds and just a little inflection makes all the difference. Cherokee has a flow, it has a rhythm that is beautiful. But once you lose that rhythm, then of course, you are lost.’

Bushyhead also won Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Award for his language preservation efforts.

For 18 years he portrayed Elias Boudinot in the Cherokee outdoor drama “Unto These Hills.” Boudinot, also a preserver of language, was the first American Indian editor. He published the Cherokee Nation’s first newspaper, “The Phoenix.”

Rick Wright wrote to explain the derivation of the Bushyhead surname:

“John Stuart, born September 25, 1718 in Inverness, Scotland, was reportedly a Captain in the British Army and commanded a company of British troops. He was stationed at Ft. Loudoun in what is now Tennessee in 1757 during the French & Indian War, according to “History of the Cherokee Indians: Old Families and Their Genealogy” by Dr. Emmet Starr.

On August 17, 1760 [I think that’s the correct date], Ft. Loudoun was attacked and overrun by Cherokee warriors under Cherokee War Chief OgoNoStoTa, and Capt. Stuart was taken captive. Most of the garrison was killed. The “romantic” story is essentially, perhaps only a little myth, that he was given two options: burn at the stake or become a member of the Cherokee Nation and marry an attractive Cherokee woman.

Well, I guess he thought it over for about a zillionth of a second, and chose option two. He was in fact not burned and did in fact marry a mixed-blood Cherokee woman by the name of Susannah Emory. Her ancestry is well documented, but there is some issue as to when they married and “diversity of opinion” as to when their son was born.

Capt. John Stuart was repatriated by Cherokee Civil Chief AttaCullaCulla. I believe that, in later years, he was appointed as an Indian Agent for the Territory South of the Ohio River. Capt. Stuart was reportedly blond and very curly headed, a matter of much attention by the Cherokee. They gave him the Cherokee name of Oo No Du Tu [BushyHead]. He was in fact so commonly called BushyHead that his child, and his child’s descendants, used BushyHead as their family name.
His son is usually shown by the name of John Stuart Bushy-Head, and his grandchildren and their descendants simply went by the family name of BushyHead.

As far as I know, they have all used BushyHead, instead of Stuart. So, it would appear that the descendants’ “real” name is BushyHead [not Stuart] due to the “de facto” name change in the 1700’s.

I have a fairly extensive genealogy on this family, including over 50 of his descendants named BushyHead. I simply do not know who Benjamin BushyHead’s father was, which prevents me from plugging that branch into what I have already.”

The obituary says Robert BushyHead’s father was Benjamin BushyHead and mother was Nancy Goings. The James Butler BushyHead I am aware of was born October 6, 1884 in the Cherokee Nation West, Tahlequah District, Oklahoma.”

LINCOLN COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA

Lincoln County was organized in 1778 with land from Tryon County, North Carolina.

One year later, Nathan Goins was among the signors of a petition dated October 19, 1779 signed by residents of Lincoln County which requested that a portion of Burke County, North Carolina be annexed to Lincoln County, according to North Carolina Legislature Papers, Box 27, North Carolina Archives.

“Burke County, North Carolina Land Records 1779-1790 and Important Miscellaneous Records 1777-1800,” Volume II by Edith Warren Huggins also carried this list.

On May 4, 1782 the General Assembly approved the annexa-tion of a portion of Burke County to Lincoln County. A fur-ther annexation of part of Burke County to Lincoln County occurred in 1784. The area annexed in 1784 was the same area that in December 1842 became the new county of Cat-awba.

John M. Goins reappeared June 11, 1860 as the head of Household 161-161:

“Goins, John M. 49, millwright, born in NC
Mary 33, born in NC, illiterate
Joseph 26, born in NC, $125 personal
property, illiterate
Michael 18, born in NC
Nancy 22, born in NC, illiterate
John C. 14, born in NC
Lucinda 12, born in NC
Daniel 10, born in NC
Benjamin F. 8, born in NC
Miles H. 6, born in NC
Philip E. 4, born in NC
Mary E. 2, born in NC
Sophie 3/12, born in NC”

David Goings made some observations about the census enumerations.

“I have an explanation which would reconcile the 1840, 1850, and 1860 census information with the information which Lianne Longmire obtained from her cousin Henry Lee Goins, Sr., now deceased, who had lived with his grandmother Martha Lucinda “Cindy” Goins who was a daughter of John M. and Mary Goins.

Henry Lee Goins had stated that there was only one John and only one Daniel. He also stated that Benjamin F[ranklin], Francis, Doctor and Frank are all the same child. He was born, named and called Frank and everything else was an add-on.

I have listed and annotated the 1840, 1850, and 1860 census information to show how the information on the 11 children of John and Mary can be reconciled.

1840 1850 1860

John Gouns 30-40 John Gowen 36 John M. Goins 49
Female 20-30 Polly 33 Mary 33
Male 5-10 Joseph 16 Joseph 26
Female 0-5 Nancy 14* Nancy 22**
Male 0-5 Mitchel 12 Micheal 18**
Daniel 11 Daniel 10**
John 10 John C. 14
Lucinda 3 Lucinda 12
Francis 1 Benjamin F. 8
Miles H. 6
Philip E. 4
Mary E. 2
Sophie 3/12

*Nancy was omitted from her family 1213 enumeration and was enumerated with family number 1220.

**Micheal and Nancy were not listed according to birth order. I suspect that Daniel was also listed out of birth order and that the informant for the 1860 census could not supply the correct ages which could have caused the census taker to use the numbers 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 for these seven children as just a guess to fill in the census form. I also suspect that the ages of Daniel and John were overstated in the 1850 census since they do not exist in the 1840 census.

My updated list of the birth of the 11 children of John M. and Mary Goins would be:

Joseph Goins c1834
Nancy Goins c1836
Michael [Mitchel] Goins c1838
Daniel Goins c1841
John C. Goins c1843
Martha Lucinda “Cindy” Goins April 16, 1847
Benjamin Franklin “Frank” Goins January 16, 1849
Miles Henderson Goins January 31, 1852
Philip E. Goins February 19, 1856
Mary E. Goins c1858
Sophia “Sophie” Goins March 1860

John M. Goins died November 22, 1869. Mary “Polly” Clippard Goins appeared June 30, 1870 as the head of Household 62-98 in Golden Valley township of adjoining Rutherford County, North Carolina:

“Goins, Mary 44, born in NC, keeping house,
Martha 22, born in NC
Doctor 19, born in NC, farming
Miles H. 17. born in NC, working on farm
Philip 15, born in NC
Mary 12, born in NC
Sophia 10, born in NC”

On June 11, 1880 “Mary Gowens” was emumerated as the head of a Household 86-86 in the Brindletown township of Burke County, North Carolina, Enumeration District 48, page 9:

“Gowens, Mary 65, born in NC, illiterate, farmer,
widow
Mary E. 25, born in NC, daughter,
illiterate

The household of her daughter, “Lucinda Gowens,” No. 67-87. adjoined hers:

“Gowens, Lucinda 31, laborer, single
Mary L. 6, daughter
Lois 4, daughter
Guirda 1, daughter”

Mary “Polly” Clippard Goins died April 11, 1887 probably in Burke County in the home of her son, Miles Henderson Goins who was enumerated there in 1880. She was interred at Silvercreek Baptist Church Cemetery in Morganton, North Carolina in Burke County.

David Goings wrote:

“According to ‘American Given Names’ by George R. Stewart and the ‘Dictionary of First Names’ by Alfred J. Kolatch, Polly was a variation of Mary. This would help confirm that Polly and Mary are the same woman in spite of the age discrepancies in the 1850 and 1860 census records. Mary ‘Polly’ Clippard could be the daughter of John Clipard and Nancy Lailors who were married in Lincoln County, NC October 15, 1814. There are several marriages of Clipard, Clippard, Clipperd, Going, Goings, and Goins listed in the book ‘Marriages of Tryon and Lincoln Counties.'”

David Goings continued:

“The name variants which have been encountered in records concerning this branch include Gowen, Gowens, Goun, Gouns, Goins, and Goings. The 1850 Cleveland County census, page 198 on the microfilm, shows a spelling of Gowen. Page number 24 of the 1860 Cleveland County census shows a spelling of Goins. Page number 6 of the 1880 Brindletown Township, Burke County census shows a spelling of Gowens. Sheet number 25 of the 1900 Henrietta, Rutherford County census shows a spelling of Goins.

Books such as ‘An Etymological Dictionary of Family Names’ by William Arthur, ‘These Names Of Ours’ by Augustus William Dellquest, ‘The Story Of Surnames’ by William Dodgson Bowman, ‘History Through Surnames’ by W. O. Hassall, ‘How You Got Your Name’ by James Pennethorne Hughes, and ‘Surnames Of The United Kingdom’ by Henry Harrison all seem to agree that the root name is Gow [Gaelic for Smith].

The Scottish and Irish patronymic forms would have in­cluded Gowen and MacGowen. The genitive ‘s’ could have formed the Gowens surname which was used by my forefathers. The name appears to have been phoneti­cally Americanized into Goins. My grandfather added the extra ‘g’ which resulted in the spelling Goings.

There are possible discrepancies in the 1840 census enumeration of John Gouns. This household was com­posed of one white male 30-40 [John, May 29, 1811], one white female 20-30 [Mary ‘Polly’, March 2, 1816], one white male 5-10 [Joseph, b1834], one white male under five [Mitchel, b1838], and one white female under 5 [Nancy, bc1836].

If this household is John M. Goins, then the 1850 Daniel age 11 would have to be in error or this 1840 census record would have to be in error. I also must wonder if the 1860 Michael is the 1850 Mitchell; if the 1860 John C. is the 1850 John or were there more omissions or slipups like Nancy being enumerated with family 1220 in the 1850 census of Cleveland County, North Carolina.

One could use the theory that these listings of children represent them chronologically according to their se­quence of birth. Using this logic the 1860 Daniel could be the 1850 Francis or the 1850 Francis may have been a child who died before the 1860 census. Also, the 1850 Daniel Gowen age 11 would then appear to be missing between Mitchell/Micheal and John/John C.

I have noticed in my research of other branches that when a child has died at an early age the parents will sometimes reuse the name on a subsequent child. Ac­cording to Henry Lee Goins, who had lived with his grandmother Lucinda Goins, there was only one Daniel and only one John who later shows as John C.

The “North Carolina Troops 1861-1865, Infantry,” Volume V, Infantry’ lists a Michael H. Goins. He resided in Cleveland County where he enlisted at age 21 on 14 May 1861. I am suspicious of the stated age due to the fact that many of the men who appear in this listing were exactly 21 years old. This could be the 1860 Michael Goins age 18 of Cleveland County.

The 1910 census for Miles and Rachel Goins of Henrietta, North Carolina in Rutherford County shows a daughter-in-law Merimar [?], age 26 with granddaughter Carrie age 4. John W. Goins, son of Miles and Rachel, died on 11 December 1906 at age 29 according to his tombstone at the Providence United Methodist Church cemetery in Hen­rietta, NC. Therefore, he could be the father. On the back of his tombstone is Pearlie V. daughter of J. W. Goins and Wife born December 26, 1901 and died July 11, 1902. John W. is single in the 1900 census for Miles and Rachel Goins of Henrietta, NC. I do not have any further information which would confirm the above persons as being one family.

One of the daughters of Miles and Rachel Goins married John C. Hall. I believe this to be the John C. Hall who was born April 4, 1885 and died December 10, 1957 and is interred at the Providence United Methodist Church cemetery in Henrietta.

This daughter went by the name of Kate. This family number 300 is enumerated January 22, 1920 in Limestone township of Cherokee County, South Carolina. John C. Hall is listed as being 34 and Kate as being 36. I do not know which of the listed daughters is actually she.”

Of him, David Goings wrote:

“I have noticed on several branches of ancestors from SC and NC that it was apparently popular to name children after famous people. In the 1860 census for John M Goins of Cleveland County, NC there is a Benjamin F Goins age 8. In the 1870 census for Mary Goins of Golden Valley township, Rutherford County, NC there is a Doctor Goins age 19. In the 1880 census of Brindleton Township Burke County, NC there is a Franklin Gowens age 30. His death certificate of 8 July 1929 in Morganton, Burke County, NC lists his name as Doctor Franklin Goins.

According to Henry Lee Goins, who had lived with his grandmother Lucinda Goins, Benjamin F. and Doctor Franklin are same person.

In the ‘Dictionary of American Biography,’ Volume III Benjamin Franklin was also referred to or known as Doctor Franklin. As a child Benjamin Franklin Goins may have adopted the nickname ‘Doctor Franklin’ after the famous Benjamin Franklin.”

Doctor Benjamin Franklin Goins was married about 1873 to Sarah Jane Hines. They were enumerated in the 1880 census as Household 76-76:

“Gowens, Franklin 30, born in NC, farmer, illiterate

Aaron Goins was born in Virginia about 1816 of parents unknown, according to the research of Madge Goins Wood Philbeck, a descendant of Statesville, North Carolina. She wrote of him in “The Goins Family of Lincoln County, North Carolina:”

“My grandmother, Sarah Goins, told members of my family that Aaron Goins and his brother, Wiley Goins, came to North Carolina from Virginia. Aaron, who was a millwright, married Ann Leonard, who is believed to be the daughter of Jacob Leonard. According to Grandmother, they had two children: Phillip and Ann Goins. Aaron, who lived in the “old Beam house,” was killed by a tree falling on him while clearing a new ground.

My great aunt says that Aaron and Ann Leonard Goins had only one child whose name was Phillip. Ann died when my aunt, who was born in 1884, was about ten years old, so Ann died about 1894.

There is a marriage bond filed in Old Tryon‑Lincoln County marriage bonds for “Arren Goings” and Ann Leonard with Elisha W. Roderick and M. W. Abernathy, witness. The bond which is dated 10 January 1837, Record 1050, Bond No. 72693, was published in ‘Marriage Bonds of Old Tryon‑Lincoln Counties, North Carolina’ by Curtis Bynum.”

“Oran Gouins” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Lincoln County, page 81, as the head of a household. He was a farmer and opposite his name in the cen­sus report was the notation “Upper Regiment Militia.” He owned a large number of slaves.

His household was composed of:

“Gouins, Oran white male 20-30
white female 20-30
white male 0-5”

“Orrin Goin” reappeared as the head of a household in the 1850 census of Lincoln County, Household 609-710, page 233:

“Goin, Orrin 34, laborer
Anna 33
Phillip 8”

Also recorded in the Smith household was Martha Goins, age 79, possibly the mother of Sarah Goins Smith and Aaron Goins.

Sonia Parsons Haga wrote April 25, 1997:

“My granny has a book on Moore County, North Carolina census records and one on cemetery records. Both include Waldens and Goins who apparently stayed closely together. They were described as Mulatto, Melungeon or Free Colored, depending on who you talked to. There is a Goins-Walden Cemetery. In the early 1900s, my family was living in the black section of High Point, North Carolina “on the tracks” as I was told. The Walden family supposedly came from Southampton County, Virginia via Chatham, Moore, Randolph and Guilford Counties, North Carolina. The surname was originally Chavis and was changed to Walden. The first was John Chavis who became John Chavis Walden.”

“Ancient Records of Moore County, North Carolina” by Rassie Wicker describes The Goins, Chavis and Walden families:

“The racial origin of the Goings [Goins], Chavis and Waldon[en] families is as mysterious and debatable as that of the Robeson County [Lumbee] Indians. These two people have much in common, especially if the older generation is considered, in both physical appear-ance and social habits. Within the recollection of the writer, which reaches back some seventy years, they were a people apart; a clannish set who married within their own tribes, and seldom associated with either whites or Negroes. In later years, there has been exten-sive intermarriage with the Negro race, to the extent that some families bearing those names are as black as pot, while others would be classified as light mulatto, and still retains the distinct physiognomy of their an-cestors. This is especially true of the Goingses.

The 1790 census lists only two Goings families in the state; both in Moore County. Both families were headed by William Goings, but one family was white, while the other is entered along with the Lockileers, Oxendines and others of the Robeson county Indians. That these two entries are not mere duplicates is proven by the fact that the white William Goings was later made a Justice of the Peace. What became of this family, the writer has been unable to determine.
In the 1790’s, there were six Chavis families in Cumberland; one in Currituck, one in Granville but none in Moore County. This clan seems to have been the more capable and intelligent of the three. Of them; John Chavis, acquired an education; was a licensed Presbyterian minister, and conducted two schools in Raleigh for several years; one for negroes and the other for white children, the latter being patronized by the better families in the Capitol City. All these Chavis families were entered in the census on par with the Goings and Waldons.

Of the Waldons, the 1790 census lists three families in Northampton and one each Warren, Sampson and Martin counties, but none in Moore.

Some years ago there appeared an article in the “Saturday Evening Post” concerning a band of people living on the Clinch River in north-central Tennessee in exactly the same manner as the Robeson County Indians. In fact, by changing a few minor paragraphs, one could well have supposed the writer was relating the story of the Lumbees. These people, who called themselves “Malungins” had their own schools and churches as did the Lumbees at that time.”
==O==
Adolph Dial wrote in “The Only Land I Know: A History of the Lumbee Indians:”

“Harrassment of Lumbees in the ante-bellum period was both legal and economic. In 1835 Charles Oxendine, a Lumbee, physically attacked Alfred Lowry, another Lumbee, and was taken to court on charges of assault and battery, trespassing, and disturbing the peace. Oxendine pleaded guilty and was fined fifteen dollars, which he was unable to pay.

Invoking an 1831 law, the judge then ruled that since the defendant could not pay his fine, the sheriff of the county should ‘Hire him out to any person who will pay the fine for his services for the shortest space of time.’ Oxendine, believing that the law which permitted the practice of ‘hiring out’ violated his rights as a free man and was therefore unconstitutional, appealed his case to the North Carolina Supreme Court,

In the Case of the State Vs. Oxendine the Supreme Court evaded the question of the validity of the law, on a technical point. It ruled that the penalty of ‘hiring out’ could be imposed only when the defendant had been ‘convicted’ of a violation of the criminal laws of the state. The court further decreed that a ‘conviction’ only occurred when there was a confession or a trial in which the facts of the case were argued. Because, Oxendine pleaded guilty, he was not technically convicted. [page 44].”

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA

Rockingham County was organized in 1785 with land from Guilford County. It adjoined Henry County, Virginia and Pitt­sylvania County, Virginia on the south, and the settlers moved freely back and forth the state line as if in one community. Rockingham County was in the heart of Melungeon country in North Carolina.

Jim Hall wrote August 18, 1999 regarding Goinstown, North Carolina:

“There exists no formal or legal designation for the Goinstown area that I have found. There are no “Goinstown” road signs to guide you or to let you know when you are there. There is no “Goinstown” on any map that I found. There is no town of Goinstown. There is a rural area which is referred to as Goinstown. The Goinstown area still exists in Rockingham County today but I doubt that anyone could say with any accuracy where it begins or ends. So let me tell you in general terms where I think “Goinstown” was and is.

From my research I think that the area came to be referred to as Goinstown in the mid to late 1800s. But the seeds for Goinstown were planted in the 1700s. My opinion is that Goinstown historically included the NW corner of Rockingham County, NC, the NE corner of Stokes County, NC, and the southern portions of Henry County, VA, and Patrick County, VA. Many of the early Goins, Moore, Gibson and Harris families (whose descendants were listed as mulatto on later census records) lived along Buffalo Creek and Hickory Creek which runs east and west across the county line of present day Rockingham and Stokes County.

Today, Goinstown is an area referred to almost exclusively as being in NW Rockingham County [Madison Township]. Goinstown Road still runs through NE Stokes County and changes to Schoolhouse Road at the Rockingham County line. The Goinstown Road is still a dirt road.

Many of these mulatto families [Goins, Moore, Gibson, Harris] lived close to the NC/VA border and moved across the state line often leading to research confusion. I think that sometimes it was easier to travel to the county seat in Martinsville, Henry Co., VA, than to the county seat in NC.

Many of these families migrated west in the first half of the 1800s century. Some moved to Scott and Hancock County VA. Others moved to eastern KY, primarily Floyd County.

However, if you drive through the area [there are only a few paved roads as this is still one of the poorest areas of the county], you will find many Goins, Gibson and Harris mailboxes. Most of the mulatto Moores moved away by 1860.

I found the old Gibson and Harris Cemetaries. In both cemetaries there appeared to be more Goins grave markers that any other family, some dating to the early 1800s.

In the 1800s some of these families also moved south and east in the county. Some lived along the Mayo River others moved to Stoneville and Madison. I am not sure where these families migrated from. John Moore, the earliest of my Moores that I have verified, was born in Orange County, NC, in 1758. But Orange County at that time included part of present day Rockingham County so the Moores may have been in this area at the time of John’s birth. Many mulatto Gibson families also lived in Orange County, NC. in the 1750s. I don’t know where the Goins families migrated from. They may have migrated south from VA.

One of the few written articles that I have found about Goinstown is an article in in the book, “The Heritage of Rockingham County,” by the Rockingham County Historical Society, published in 1983. It is a very short article written by Zelma Joyce Scott. The introduction written by the editor reads as follows:

‘Goinstown as a community has a special story to tell. Mysterious in it’s origin, it’s natives tend to insulate themselves against intrusion. The roots of that clannishness may be found in the process of acculturation forced on the Indian society of North America. Historically the repeated choice for the Indian has been to join another still functioning Indian group elsewhere or merge within the conventions and associations of either the white or black man’s way of life. Many of the families of Goinstown consider themselves Indian. A letter written by Douglas Rights, a noted authority on North Carolina Indians, which is preserved in the Smithsonian Institute archives, speaks of Goinstown as a mixed blood settlement in Rockingham. He points out that among the principal families are Harris, Goins and Hickman, and that Harris is one of the most familiar surviving family names among the Catawba Indians. A member of the Harris family of Goinstown had told Dr. Rights that his people had drifted off in two directions, the lighter color drifting out and associating with the whites, and the darker taking places in Negro society.’

In the article Ms. Scott states, ‘These people have many features of Indian, Portuguese and other nationalities. Some local people believe they are part of the Lost Colony of Manteo….’

I talked to Ms. Scott in an attempt to get more information but she couldn’t give any more details than was given in the article.

During the 1930s one of the WPA projects was to preserve old cemetery inscriptions by recording information on grave markers. Some WPA workers recorded information on the markers in the John Foy Cemetery located three miles west of Madison. This information can be found in WPA Pre-1914 Cemetery Inscriptions. I have looked at all the cards and found no other useful information. One of the typewritten cards pertains to the Walker I. Gibson family. Walker Gibson was probably in C.S.A. but his widow could not get a pension as he was regarded as a Negro.

All this family of Gibson were up to about 1895 listed by tax listers as Negroes; they called themselves East Indians [from the Indies or Indians from the East], else assumed by some to be Melanoe.”

Louise Nunn, candidate for a master’s degree, wrote in 1937 “A Comparison of the Social Situation of Two Isolated Indian Groups in Northern North Carolina.” In her dissertation, she described a Rockingham County group that showed on the tax rolls of the county as “9 Goins families, 3 Harris families and 2 Richardson families.” The group was concentrated around “Gointown, North Carolina.”

Miss Nunn wrote that the Rockingham group was very unstable in 1937. The white-appearing part of the group was trying to exclude the children of dark-appearing part of the group from attending the special “Indian School” that had been built for them. She reported a definite Negroid appearance in the darker children.

“The Goinstown community is located in the northwest corner of Rockingham County, North Carolina, on the border with Stokes County. The prominent family names are Goins, Hickman, Harris, Richardson, and Kimmons. These related families can be traced back at least to the early 1800s in the area as free colored persons. The tradition is that they are descended either from ‘Croatan’ Indians [there was a period in the 1930s and 1940s when it was popular to describe any group of Indian people of uncertain origin as descendants of the ‘Croatans’] or from remnants of the Saura tribe who mixed with non-Indians in the area. The community had a school until the early 1960s that was officially classed as Indian and has gradually merged with the white community. There is still a perception among the local whites that the Goinstown people are of Indian descent. With the location of the old Saura Town nearby on the Dan River, it is possible that these people possess, to some degree, Saura ancestry.

Of course, it is impossible to know for certain know whether Ezekiel Joines of Wilkes County was related to the Goinstown Indians of nearby Surry County. However, a number of “free colored persons” named Goins lived in the general vicinity.

Supporting the Melungeon theory, Ezekiel’s son Thomas Joines married a woman named Mary Caudill. The name Caudill, like Goins, is closely associated with the Melungeons.
For that matter, so is Pruitt, the name of Ezekiel’s [possible] first wife. And consider this description of Shadrack Joines, one of Thomas Joines’ grandsons, as recalled by an elderly member of the family in 1960: “’Shade Joines’ as he was known was a well built medium size man, had almost black hair and deep brown eyes.” Shadrack’s parents were cousins, Ezekiel Joines and Pheraby Caudill.”

Lewis Going was born in 1810 in North Carolina of parents unknown. The research of Jack Harold Goins suggests that he was a grandson of Jessee Going. He wrote:

“Lewis Goins was in Hawkins County 1850-55 had son John Lewis born 1855. They were from Goins-town, Rockingham County. Lewis is probably a grandson of Jessee Going. Jessee Going believed to be related by marriage to John Riddle, son of Moses Ridley and Mary Ridley. ‘Jesse Gowen’ paid £50 to Thomas Crawley for land located on Daltons Creek and on the Stokes County line Oct 27, 1797, and on the same day John Riddle/Ridley paid Crawley £25 for land adjoining ‘Jesse Gowen,’ according to Rocking-ham County Deed Book E, page 209.

Most if not all of these Rockingham County Riddles were children and or grandchildren of John Riddle. His son, Randolph Riddle who married Elizabeth Gib-son later moved from Rockingham County to Hawkins County, Tennessee. Randolph Riddle’s son, James Austin Ridley, was married to Nancy L. Going about 1839 in Rockingham County. I regard John Riddle as a brother to William “Tory” Riddle and son of Moses and Mary Ridley/Riddle of Orange County, North Car-olina and Henry County, Virginia.”

Lewis Going was married to Elizabeth Harris February 19, 1839, according to “Rockingham County, North Carolina Marriages, 1787-1850.” According to “North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868,” Record 1091, bondsman William More, witnesses R. J. Martin and Jeremiah Martin, Bond 119741. Their marriage date was also shown as February 19, 1829. Nothing more is known of Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going.

“Lewis Going” was married October 24, 1844 [perhaps in a second marriage] to Elizabeth Going, according to “Rockingham County, North Carolina Marriages, 1787-1850.” The marriage is confirmed by “North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868,” record 1091, bondsman Johnson Going, witness E. W. Hancock, Bond 119742.

“Lewis Goings” was enumerated as the head of Household 755 in the 1850 census of Rockingham County:

“Goings, Lewis 40, mulatto, waggoner, born in
NC
Elizabeth 33
Polly 9
Heneriet 7
Elizabeth 5
Sarah 3
Nathan 1”

Enumerated in an adjoining household was Elijah Going, regarded as a brother of Lewis Going, as the head of Household 756:

“Goings, Elijah 33, mulatto, blacksmith, born in
NC”
Mary 27
Sally 5
James 3
Francis 1, female
Goings, Elizabeth 27″

Elizabeth Going is regarded as a sister or sister-in-law of Lewis Going.

Enumerated in nearby Household 758 is Matilda Going:

“Goings, Matilda 35, mulatto, born in NC
Mary 7, born in NC
Nancy 4, born in NC
Henry 2, born in NC”

Matilda Going is regarded as a widowed sister-in-law of Lewis Going and Elijah Going. Researcher Jody Mays, a descendant of Lewis Going regards the above individuals as workers on a tobacco plantation. Sometime prior to 1860, Lewis Going removed to Hawkins County, Tennessee, perhaps to join other family members there.

The household of Lewis Going was listed in 1860 in Hawkins County as:

“Going, Lewis 47, born in NC, illiterate, mulatto
Elizabeth 38, born in NC, illiterate
Letty 19, born in NC
Nancy 14, born in NC
Elizabeth 1, born in NC
John L. 5, born in NC
Nathan A. 13, born in NC”

Apparently the family arrived in Tennessee from North Carolina in 1860. Jody Mays reported that he was enumerated as “Lewis Goins, mulatto” in the 1860 census of Hawkins County with two additional children, “John Lewis Goins, age 5” and “Elizabeth Goins, age 1.”

He reappeared as mulatto in the 1870 census of Hawkins County. In 1880, he was recorded as “Lewis Gaines.”

Children born to Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going include:

Polly Going born about 1841
Henrietta Going born about 1842

Later they removed to Hawkins County to join other members of the family there.
Elizabeth Going, daughter of Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going, was born about 1845 in Rockingham County. She may have died within the next ten years because another daughter, born about 1859 was also named “Elizabeth.”
Sarah Going, daughter of Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going, was born about 1847 in Rockingham County. She appeared as a three-year-old in the 1850 census.
Nathan Going, son of Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going, was born about 1849. He appeared as a one-year-old in the 1850 census of Rockingham County. Nathan Going died April 16, 1916 in Rogersville, Tennessee and was buried in Ebbing and Flowing Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, according to Jody Mays.

John Lewis Going, son of Lewis Going and Elizabeth Harris Going, was born about 1855 in Rockingham County. He ap­peared as a five-year-old in the 1860 census of Hawkins County. He was married to Mary “Molly” Gammons in 1875, according to a great-grandson, Jody Mays. He also died in Hawkins County.
