Daniel Goins, regarded as the son of William Gowan and Anastasia Sullivan Gowan, was born about 1759 in Bedford County, Virginia., according to the research of Karen L. Cooper, a descendant of Fairborn, Ohio.

She wrote:

“In February 1777, Daniel Going enlisted to serve in the Revolutionary War for a period of two years. He served in the company commanded by Capt. Gross Scruggs which was part of the Fifth Virginia Regiment commanded by Col. Josiah Parker. Scruggs’ company was raised in Bedford County, according to “Virginia Soldiers of 1776” by Louis B. Burgess.

Daniel stated in his pension application that he fought in the Battle of Brandywine which took place on Brandywine Creek, in southeastern Pennsylvania September 11, 1777. This skirmish took place at the Old Kennett Meeting House of the Quakers. The building was still standing in April 2000.

On the morning of September 11, British and Hessian troops began marching east along the ‘Great Road’ [now Route 1], advancing on the Colonial troops positioned where the road crossed Brandywine Creek. The first shots of the battle took place at a tavern where the British were repulsed. The British called for reinforcements and ran down the road to take cover behind the stone walls on the Old Kennett Meeting House grounds. The battle was fought at mid-morning around the meeting house while the pacifist Quakers continued to hold their midweek service. One of the Quakers later wrote, ‘While there was much noise and confusion without, all was quiet and peaceful within.’

From the church, the battle continued for three miles to what is now Battlefield Park. Eventually the British pushed the Colonials back, but not before suffering heavy losses.

Daniel Going also mentions the Battle of Germantown [suburb of Philadelphia] fought on October 4, 1777 in his pension application. At that time, the Fifth Virginia, serving under Gen. George Washington, went into winter quarters at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Daniel Going was discharged there after one year of service.”

Daniel Going returned to Bedford County. “Daniel Going, white male over 21,” first appeared as a taxpayer in Bedford County in 1783, paying a tax on “1 horse and 3 cows.”

Daniel Gowen was married about 1783, wife’s name believed to be “Ann.” Karen L. Cooper suggests that her maiden name was “Preston” and that she was born about 1757 “Dan: Gowing” and “Mrs. Ann Gowen” were purchasers at an estate sale October 10, 1783 in Bedford County.

About 1785, William Gowan made a declaration to the Bedford County Court that he had lost an Auditor’s Warrant which had belonged to Daniel Going. The bankrupt Continental Congress was not financially able to pay the Revolutionary soldiers at the end of the war and issued Auditor’s Warrants as promissory notes for future payment. The various states faced financial difficulties as well.

His declaration, recorded in Court Minutes Book 8, page 78, read:

“Bedford County
Virginia Court Records

William Gowing came into court and made oath that he had an Auditor’s Warrant for £4:16s and some odd pence which did belong to Daniel Gowing and he lost the same. That he has not directly or indirectly received any satisfaction for the same which is ordered to be certified to the Auditors of Pub. Accts. Memo Bond given with Wm. Hand [his fee] in Pen[alty?] of £9:12:0”

On February 6, 1787, William Gowan returned to court to repeat his affidavit and to renew the bond:

“William Gowing came into court and made oath that he had an Auditor’s Warrant for £4:16s and some odd pence for the services of Daniel Gowing from the Auditor of Public Accounts bearing date of 3d Dec. 1782 and that he lost the same. That he has not directly or indirectly received any satisfaction for the same which is ordered to be certified etc . . . Memo bond given in the penalty of £9:12:0”

In 1786 Daniel Going was recorded as a “white male over 21” with “2 horses and 3 cows.”

On May 7, 1787 “Daniel Going, white male over 21” was assessed taxes on “2 horses.” On April 29, 1788 “Daniel Gowin” was assessed as “1 white male over 21.” On May 30, 1789 “Daniel Gowin” was assessed on “1 white male over 21” by William Pate. On July 3, 1790, Pate assessed “Daniel Goin” on “1 poll.” On April 25, 1791, Matthew Pate assessed “Daniel Goin” on “1 poll.” “Daniel Gowin” was assessed taxes July 10, 1792.

On May 28, 1793, “Daniel Gowin, 1 poll” and “Isham Gowin, 1 poll” appeared on the Bedford County tax rolls.

“Daniel Gowing” was assessed June 20, 1794, and “Daniel Goen” was assessed April 4, 1795. “Daniel Gowin” was assessed March 21, 1796, and “Daniel Gowen” was assessed on “1 tithe” on April 8, 1797.

“Daniel Going” was one of the men who posted bond when items were sold from the estate of Maryann Franklin in Bedford County November 22, 1794. The bond was “examined by the Bedford County Court September 19, 1797 and returned July 23, 1798,” suggesting that Daniel Going remained there at that time.

“Daniel Going” was assessed on “2 tithes, for self and son, Isham” August 21, 1802. On August 20, 1803 “Daniel Going” was assessed on “1 tithe.” “Isham Going” having married, was assessed separately.

On August 13, 1804, “Daniel Going” was assessed on “2 tithes and 2 horses.” “Isham Going” was again living with his father. In 1805, the last year that “Daniel Going” was assessed in Bedford County, he was taxed on “1 tithe and 1 horse.” Isham Goins had already removed to Claiborne County, Tennessee. Later that year Daniel Going joined his son in western Claiborne County.

About 1805, Daniel Goins joined his son, Isham Goins in removing to Claiborne County, Tennessee. In the following year, Campbell County, Tennessee was formed from Claiborne County and Anderson County, and the Goins families found themselves in the new county. In 1817 Daniel Goins lived near Jellico, Tennessee in Campbell County.

On June 3, 1818, Daniel Going made an affidavit in Campbell County Court asking for a pension based on his Revolutionary service. The earliest general pension act for Revolutionary service was enacted by Congress May 18, 1818.
Daniel Goins applied for a Revolutionary pension June 3, 1818 in Campbell County, Tennessee at “age 60.”

“Pension No. S-38744:

Congress enacted a second pension act May 1, 1820 requiring that the veterans to show that they were needy before a pension was to be granted. On December 4, 1820, to retain his pension, Daniel Going made another statement before the court regarding his military service and his financial condition. Many veterans were known to have minimized their financial position to make certain of receiving the pension to which they felt entitled by their service. It is believed that Daniel Going did not have to exaggerate. His affidavit read:

In 1822 Daniel Going was a witness to a deed in which Canada Bratcher, Jr, brother-in-law of Isham Going, conveyed land to Isham Goins.

A “white male, 60-70,” regarded as Daniel Goins, appeared in the 1830 census of the household his son, Isham Goins in adjoining Claiborne County, Tennessee.

He reappeared in the household in the 1840 census of Claiborne County as a “white male, 70-80.” Daniel Goins died August 22, 1838.

Jeri Webb, San Clemente, California discovered and transcribed an entry which was recorded in the Campbell County court minutes March 4, 1839:

“This day satisfactory evidence was produced in court proving that Daniel Goins was a Revolutionary pensioner of the United States at the rate of eight dollars per month, was a resident citizen of the County of Campbell, in the State of Tennessee, that he died in the County of Campbell and State of Tennessee, in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty eight on the 22nd day of August, that he left no widow that he has but his one child is Isham Goins, who is his only heir at law.”

One child was born to Daniel Goins:

Isham Goins born about 1786

Isham Goins, son of Daniel Goins was born about 1786 in Bedford County, Virginia. He was married there , at age 16, November 15, 1802 to Susannah “Sookie” Bratcher who was born there about 1787 to Canada Bratcher and Rachel “Biddy” Robinson Bratcher, according to the research of Col. James Young of McAlester, Oklahoma. Canada Bratcher was born to Charles Bratcher and Nancy Bratcher in Bedford County, Virginia in 1760.

June A. Smith, Foundation Editorial Boardmember of Bremerton, Washington reports that Canada Bratcher was one of the securities on their marriage bond, “No. 7266, part 2.”

In 1817, Isham Goins lived at Jellico, Tennessee in Campbell County. He appeared in the 1818 and 1823 tax lists of Camp­bell County. The household of “Isham Goin” was enumerated in the 1830 census of Campbell County, page 226 as:

In 1886 they removed to Johnson County, Missouri. Mary M. Lake Goin died there May 24, 1897. In 1910 Benjamin Franklin Goin and his children removed to Caldwell, Idaho, and in the following year moved to Salem, Oregon. He died there October 26, 1913.

His obituary appeared in the Salem newspaper:

“B. F. Goin for many years well known resident living six miles north east of Warrensburg, Missouri, and who went West a few years ago, died October 26, 1913, at his late home three miles south of Salem, Oregon, 20 and Lee streets. His sickness being so serious death was not unexpected, bone gangrene and dia­betes being the cause of his death. He passed away at 6 o’clock that evening. The deceased was born in Campbell County, Tennessee, October 31, 1835. He was the son of Daniel and Elizabeth Pebley Goin, both of whom were born in the above named state.

For six years they lived on a farm in that county. In 1886 they pur­chased forty acres and some timber land in Johnson County, six miles north­east of Warrensburg, where Mr. and Mrs. Goin worked and improved for forty‑two years. April 13, 1910, with his sons, William and Benjamin, and two daughters, Melvina and Louise, he moved to Caldwell, Idaho.

Mr. Goin had been a member of the Methodist Episco­pal Church for forty-five years. He was also a member of the Baptist Church six years during his younger days. He took an active part in Sunday school work and attended church services and was a firm believer in the Truth and that “Ye must be born again.” He bore his afflictions with Christian fortitude. He replied once to a friend “I am just waiting. What a great thing rest is.” His last days were spent in prayer.

The family, consisting of two sons, two daughters and three grandchildren, moved to Salem, Oregon, the latter part of July, 1911 in covered wagons.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Marshall of Salem, pastor of the First Baptist Church, at the undertaker’s parlors, the text being John 14.

The remains were laid to rest in the Lee Missionary Cemetery. The casket was covered with beautiful flow­ers presented by loving friends. He was a loving and kind father and was respected by his friends and neigh­bors.”

Rev. Richard Goins, a son wrote of the life of his parents in his autobiography, “Recollections of a Reverend:”

“My father, Richard Goins, for whom I was named, was the son of Granville G. Goin and Mary Jane Lake Goin, formerly of Claiborne County in northeast Tennessee. So far as I have been able to ascertain, they made the journey westward to Missouri about the time of the Civil War, and eventually settled in the southern part of Daviess County, close to the town of Breckenridge. Many of the Goin [the letter “s” was added to the family name around 1900] relatives are buried in the old Lick Fork Cemetery near there.

My mother, Lillie Viola Warner, was a daughter of James Nathan and Amelia Guntin Warner formerly of the area around Anderson, Indiana. It appeared that my mother’s parents and other relatives were a part of a gen­eral westward migration which took place in the 1880s and ’90s. At any rate they too had established homes in southern Daviess County in Missouri.

In the early years of their marriage, my father’s liveli­hood from working as a farmhand was supplemented by income gained from his skill as a barber in the little [now extinct] town of Madilene, located about four miles southwest of Gilman City.

There was railroad work to be found in nearby Trenton, where the Rock Island Line was expanding operations, and so my folks moved there in about 1910.

Our home surroundings there on West 22nd Street in Trenton, where I first lived, were most humble. The faded, white, three‑room frame house was located on the edge of a large pasture and looking through the fence at cattle grazing was an exciting pastime for a small child. Over to one side of the house was a cis­tern with a pump to produce our water supply, while out behind the house was the privy. Gardens were necessary to supplement the family food supply and I re­member how Dad would pack cabbages, potatoes and other vegetables into wooden boxes which were then buried in the ground so as to be dug out for use during the cold winter months.

One of the three rooms in our little house contained a black iron heating stove, along with other simple fur­nishings such as a davenport that unfolded into a bed and a couple of rocking chairs. Another room con­tained, not only an iron cook stove, but also a good‑sized drop‑leaf table, six chairs, and another fold‑away bed. For washing purposes a heavy iron boiler was filled with water and heated on the cook stove. The water was then dipped into a galvanized tub, placed on two chairs and with some P&G soap and a scrub board the clothing was washed. Of course, the pieces were hand wrung and, even in the winter, were affixed to the line outside to freeze dry. The one item in the house, which might be considered a luxury, was a player piano, purchased by my older sister, Hester, from her earnings as a telephone operator. How well do I remember the boxes of piano rolls and also the lively tunes the piano turned out.

The third room in the little house was used, not only as a bedroom for my parents, but was also the storage area for most of the family’s clothing. With no provisions for heating that sleeping area, the winter months were made bearable only by the use of hot flat irons wrapped in cloths and tucked beneath the bed covers.

As the effects of the Great Depression began to reach our town, the loss of employment was widely felt and I even recall how our fifth grade teacher talked to us and helped us children to be aware of the situation that was rapidly developing. By now I had started to spend much of my summer time with my grandparents, and there was much talk of hard times and how the Federal Land Bank was taking over many farms and how it was commonly believed that President Hoover was permitting the country to go to ruin.

In the spring of 1930, Dad’s health was impaired be­cause of a prostate condition which resulted in surgery that summer. Although he had a most difficult time, probably due in part to the limited medical facilities available, still he managed to pull through and seemed to be on the road to recovery. However, in less than a year, he began to experience a recurrence of the prob­lem. It appeared there was little that could be done to help. Thus, in the fall and winter of 1931, his con­dition continued to deteriorate from what was suspected to be a malignant condition and, what was worse, there seemed to be little or no sedation available to relieve his pain and suffering. My mother nursed and cared for him as best she could through that long hard winter. His bedfast confinement lasted many months until his death in early May of 1932.

One October Sunday evening, Mother was invited by two neighborhood couples to attend evening church services with them at the local Baptist church. When, later in the evening, we heard the voice and laughter of a man blending with Mom’s voice out on our front porch, there was puzzlement about this until, with the sound of a crash, the mystery was solved. It seems that our neighbors had arranged for a widowed gentleman friend of theirs to walk home from church with them in such a way that he naturally would walk in the com­pany of Mom. He had also remained to visit with her for a while in the porch swing until one of the sup­porting chains had pulled loose under their weight causing them to tumble. Then mother made an em­barrassed entrance into the house and explained the situation to my sister and me. This was our introduc­tion to Rex Rains who was to become Mother’s second husband and our step‑father within a year. We came to know him as one who worked in the city’s street maintenance department and as one whose wife had passed away the previous year. Indeed our family came to appreciate Rex as one of our own and we were happy that Mother found the companionship of one so good‑natured and likeable, as well as being a dependable and hard‑working person.

The following months were memorable for at least two reasons. For one thing, the summer of 1934 witnessed the first of two devastating years of drouth. How can one forget dark clouds of dust that began filling the sky in 1934, the searing southwesterly winds and tempera­tures reaching as high as 110‑115 degrees. On my ma­ternal grandparent’s farm, we witnessed the crops being destroyed by heat and chinch bugs, wells drying up, and streams ceasing to flow. Sleeping out under the stars on the dry, brittle grass of the yard afforded some measure of relief. Upon returning to Trenton in late August, there was some adjustment to having two additional persons in our household in cluding Rex, to whom Mom had been married in June, and his teen‑aged son, Richard Rains, who lived with us for a time.”

Richard Goins, Jr. son of Richard Goins and Lillie Viola Warner Goins, was born December 5, 1918 in Trenton. He was graduated from Trenton High School May 20, 1937 and enrolled in Trenton Junior College. He entered Drake Uni­versity in Des Moines, Iowa in 1941.

He was married June 14, 1942 to Marietta Laffoon, his high school sweetheart in Trenton First Christian Church. Re­ceiving his B.A. degree in June 1943, he began work immedi­ately on a master’s degree. For his thesis he researched and wrote, “A History of Christian Churches in Dallas County, Iowa.”

He received his M.A. degree, and immediately enrolled in College of the Bible Seminary at Transylvania College in Lexington, Kentucky.

“Lexington was my choice of seminaries, largely be­cause of the feeling that in some ways Kentucky is the very cradle of the Disciples of Christ movement. Nor were we disappointed, for how thrilling it was to visit the old Cain Ridge Meeting House up near Paris, Ken­tucky. There, outside the old log building was the cemetery where Barton W. Stone, one of our pioneer religious leaders, was buried. Also down in the center of Lexington was one historical marker denoting the loca­tion where one of the famous Alexander Campbell de­bates was held. When in my third year at the seminary, I chose as my thesis topic “A History of the College of the Bible.”

My research involved interviewing persons such as Dr. Alonzo Fortune, who by then was along in years, and also afflicted with blindness. But Dr. Fortune, who had for many years served as pastor of Lexington Central Church still possessed a keen mind, and he had learned the Braille system very well. What a thrill it was to hear him tell of his acquaintance with the famous W. M. Garvey who back at the beginning of the century was an intellectual force in our movement.”

He was graduated June 21, 1947, and moved to Marion, Iowa to begin his first full-time ministry at a starting salary of $2,650 per year. On May 10, 1953 he became the minister of the First Christian Church in Spencer, Iowa. He accepted the ministry of Oscaloosa, Iowa July 1, 1957.

On January 29, 1967 they removed to Ottumwa, Iowa to fill the pulpit there.

On February 22, 1977 he wrote,

“About five years ago I visited the town of Tazewell, Tennessee which is the county seat of Claiborne County. Some four or five miles away is the little town called Goin. It seems that there were at least three different Goin families who inhabited that area in the early 1800s, and I have not been able to relate these three families though I have corresponded with relatives and descendants of the different clans.

It appears that our branch of the Goin family came through the Cumberland Gap from Virginia in the early 1800s. They appeared to have settled first in Camp[bell County, and then, after returning to Virginia briefly, they came back to settle in Claiborne County which is adjacent to Campbell County on the east.

It appears that the family grew up in that territory and then, about the time the Civil War broke out, when most of the boys were young men, they migrated to Missouri. They appear to have settled near Lexington in Lafayette County, Missouri. I have evidence that Benjamin Franklin Goin, son of Daniel Goin arrived in that area in November of 1857. The records then seem to indicate that during the Civil War years, the Goin brothers dispersed in different directions with at least three of them, James, Granville and Bluford moving to the north part of Missouri in Daviess County. I can recall seeing my great uncle Bluford Goin when I was a boy at his home close to Breckenridge, Missouri. Many of the Goin relatives are buried at the old Lick Fork Cemetery near there.”

In June 1973 he became the minister of the First Christian Church in Boone, Iowa. He retired in 1984, and they returned to Ottumwa where he was named to the board of directors of Wapello County Historical Society. After undergoing quintu­ple coronary by-pass surgery July 31, 1986, Richard Goins curtailed his preaching activities and be­gan to pursue less strenuous pursuits.

Through the years, Richard Goins maintained his interest in family history and in 1989 published “Recollections of a Reverend.” In January 1993 he, a member of the Gowen Research Foundation Editorial Board of Directors and Ma­rietta Laffoon Goins continued to live in Ottumwa. Richard Goins died November 3, 1994 as the result of injuries suffered in an automobile accident near his home Marietta Lafoon Goins was injured in the accident, but was released shortly afterward from Ottumwa Regional Health Center.

He is about 35-40 years old, and, I think, a native of Tennessee,” stated Sheehan.

On the same date Jack Spence testified, “I have known the defendant for three years, and have been with him every day for two weeks. He said he wanted to turn his bar around so that he stood in front of the bar to bar-keep and have his customers stand behind the bar to drink. He struck a man last night with a plank.”

Various members of the Goin family associated with the Cherokees after their removal to the Hamilton-Bradley County area, but sought to distance themselves from the tribe about 1833 when it became apparent that the Indians were destined to make the trek to Oklahoma along the “Trail of Tears.”

Seventy years later, their descendants were claiming Cherokee blood when the federal government sought to redress some of the inequities inflicted upon the tribesmen. However when the Goin individuals could prove nothing more than juxtaposition with the Cherokees, the Dawes Commission in 1907 generally rejected all of their claims. Many of these affidavits appear in the Hamilton, Bradley and Cannon County sections of this manuscript. Many of the Goin individuals of northeastern Ten­nessee were of Melungeon descent and passed easily for Indians in the above named counties.
