JAMES CITY COUNTY, VIRGINIA

Archaeologists believe they may have discovered the skeleton of the man considered to be the main force behind the first permanent English settlement in America. He also is an ancestor to thousands of present-day Americans.

Archeologists digging inside the location of the 17th-century Jamestown fort uncovered the skeleton a few weeks ago. Given its placement and the ceremonial artifacts found alongside the body, researchers believe that it is the skeleton of Capt. Bartholomew Gosnold. Using modern-day high-tech techniques, the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities hopes to prove or disprove that assumption.

The association, which began excavating the fort area in 1994, is arranging DNA tests to compare the remains to the DNA of Gosnold’s descendants.

A native of Suffolk, England, Gosnold pushed the English to send out another group of explorers and settlers after the disappearance of the Roanoke colony sometime around 1587 in what is now North Carolina’s Outer Banks. In 1602, Gosnold led an expedition to the Maine and Massachusetts coasts, where he discovered and named Cape Cod for the fish found there, and Martha’s Vineyard, for his infant daughter, Martha Gosnold. As commander of the “Godspeed,” he was second-in-command in the three-ship fleet that landed the 107 Virginia Company settlers at Jamestown in May of 1607. He helped design the triangular fort where they lived. Capt. John Smith, credited with leading and ultimately saving the colony, described Gosnold as “the prime mover behind the settlement.”

Gosnold died in August of 1607 after three weeks of illness. About two-thirds of the settlers died that summer.

Alexander Goins was the subject of a ballad written about 1844 by Gabriel Church of Wise County, according to Blue Ridge Institute who display the ballad on its website.

Alexander Goins, an itinerant peddler who frequented the area of Big Stone Gap, was killed in 1844 by thieves in Wise Coun-ty [then Lee County]. Goins was ambushed by George Hall and his band of renegades, but he escaped to the house of Ely Boggs. Unfortunately for Goins, Boggs was in collusion with Hall. Offering to show Goins another route out of the area, Boggs led Goins into a trap, where Hall’s men were hid-ing, and Goins was shot and killed.

V. N. “Bud” Phillips of Bristol, Virginia, a great-great grand-son of Ely Boggs, wrote in June 1994 that Alexander Goins was buried on the Boggs farm located near Stonega, Virginia. He mentioned that he had search for the grave, but was uncer-tain that he had found it.

Another version of the incident, according to Blue Ridge Insti-tute is that Goins himself was an evil man and was shot by de-frauded settlers.

The ballad, posted at “Deathly Lyrics: Songs of Virginia Tragedies,” read:

“Poor Goins”

Come all you young people,
That live far and near,
I’ll tell of a murder
That was done on the Nine Mile Spur.

They surrounded Poor Goins,
But Goins got away.
He went to Ely Boggs.
He went there to stay.

Ely Boggs, he foreknew him.
His life he did betray,
Saying, “Come and go with me,
And I’ll show you a nigh way.”

They started up Nine Mile Spur, boys.
They made no delay,
‘Till they came across the crossroads,
Where Goins they did slay.

When they got in hearing,
They were lying mighty still.
“Your money’s what we’re after,
And Goins we will kill.”

When they got in gunshot
They did bid him for to stand.
“Your money’s what we’re after.
Your life is in our hands.”

Sweet heaven, Sweet heaven,
How loud he did cry,
“To think of my companion,
And now I have to die.”

When the gun did fire,
It caused his horse to run.
The bullet failed to kill him.
George struck him with his gun.

After they had killed him,
With him they would not stay.
They drank up all his whiskey,
and then they rode away.

His wife, she was sent for.
She made no delay.
She found his grave dug
Along by the way.

“Go kill a man for riches
Or any such thing.
I pray the Lord have mercy
Till judgement kills the stings.”

Sweet heaven, sweet heaven,
We heard her poor mourns.
“Here lies his poor body.
Where is his poor soul?”

He was the son of John Atkinson and Margaret Glover Atkinson. He served as a Union soldier in the Civil War. His siblings were Harry, Jean, Hezz, Joel, James, William, John and Missouri, according to Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour.

In 1880, James Atkinson was living in Astubula, Kansas where a son was born.

Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour, quoting Sarah Atkinson Presher and Dora Baker Groth, wrote:

“In 1883, Lizzy & John Atkinson loaded up their belongings and headed west over the Oregon Trail in one of the last wagon trains of the Great Western Migration. At that time the family consisted of Lizzy and John, Daniel, Charles, Frank, Eugene, and their half-sister Molly. Molly was the product of an earlier marriage between John and Mary Ann Stevens, she would later marry a man named Edwards.

After their arrival in Oregon the family settled at Tillamook on the north-central Oregon coast. Soon after Dot And Joel came along, the family moved again, about 20 miles south of Tillamook to a community called Sandlake. This would have before 1890, and the only transportation in such a remote area was by horse and wagon, so though only 20 miles, the move took two days.

Today Sandlake would barely qualify for ‘community’ status, but then it was even smaller. The Atkinsons built a log house and a barn, far removed from their neighbors in that area of virgin fir forest. The next step was to clear land for farming. Their new home was about two miles from the Pacific Ocean, at the end of a small bay, and families were connected only by dirt roads.

In the winter of 1890, a lumber schooner bound for Australia was wrecked during a storm off Cape Lookout, the northern boundary of Sandlake. The Atkinson family joined their neighbors in driving their wagons over a difficult trail the four or five miles to where much lumber had washed ashore. From this bounty would come a sturdy new home.

The senior Atkinsons sold their farm and dairy to their son, Eugene or “Chub” who would live there with his wife and family for the remainder of his life. They continued with the dairy, but Chub also raised cranberries, one of the first in Oregon to do so.

James Atkinson moved back to Tillamook where he died about 1920. She died March 26, 1943 and was buried in the IOOF Cemetery at Tillamook.

Eugene “Chub” Atkinson, son of James Atkinson and Elizabeth Ellen “Lizzie” Goins, was born about 1880, according to Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour, a granddaughter. She wrote,

“On July 21, 1912 “Chub” was married to Elva Susan Baker at Forest Grove, Oregon. Elva was the daughter of Daniel Baker [1845-1929] and Mary Ann Darland Baker [1845-1928] who had come across the Oregon Trail with their respective families in 1865. The youngsters must have noticed each other somewhere along the trail, for they married three years later. The new Baker family settled at Cedar Canyon, near Forest Grove, Oregon where they lived their own pioneer life. Some of their stories were later written down by the baby of the family, Dora Baker Groth and are quoted here.

The Baker children were all born at Cedar Canyon, and all died in Oregon or Washington, except for Dan and Elva who died in California. The children were Joseph Flint [1868-1871], Harry Caswell [1870-1952], Albert Francis [1871-1953], Laura Belle Sears [1872-1961], Lewis Herbert [1874-1960], Effie Adella Scoffeld [1875-1952], Sylva Leona Reed [1876-1974], Arthur Delmer [1878-1879], Incy Ann [1880-1954, never married], Elva Susan Atkinson [1882-1956], Daniel Miller [1883-1969], Dora Esther Groth [1885-1979].”

“Norman Matheney married a girl from the Tillamook area, and after serving in WWII they settled in Boston where he was a staff photographer for the ‘Christian Science Monitor’ for many years, retiring in about 1996 or 1997. They had two children, Brian and Dale, who currently live on the east coast. Both receiving college degrees, they work in the computer field.

Elizabeth Matheney, or ‘Betsy’ as she was known, would have two children, Marsha and Robin Perry. Betsy married Jim Perry, and they lived in Eugene, Oregon many years before moving to the Seattle area, probably during the late 1960s. Jim brought Betsy’s step-daughters Dianne and Debbi Perry, to the marriage with him. He retired from railroad work about 1995. In 1997, both Marsha and Robin have children of their own. Marsha lives in the Eugene area, while Robin and her husband live closer to her folks near Seattle.

Marvin Matheny married Vicki, and they had three children, Marci, Mindy, and Scott. Marvin and Vicki live in Shelton, Washington in 1997. They are near Vicki’s folks and have a lovely home in the woods. The kids are pretty much grown and gone now, with at least one grandchild in the fold.

Daniel O’Dell in 1997 lived in the Eugene area.

Laura Sue O’Dell was married to Harold Nicholson who worked for the government, and they would travel and live in many exotic places around the world. They had three children, Jeremi, Astralina, or Star, and one more. Laura and James were divorced about 1983.”

Sarah Adelle Atkinson, daughter of Eugene “Chub” Atkinson and Elva Baker Anderson, was born December 17, 1918 at Sandlake. Of her aunt Sarah, Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour wrote:

Her letters from England to her family from that period have been submitted to the Foundation. In 1967 she was married to Ralph Presher. He died in 1971, but they enjoyed their brief time together as he was a dear sweet man, much like Sarah herself. In 1988, she moved to Scotts Valley, California, where she experienced at close hand the earthquake of 1989. In 1992, she moved to Birmingham, Alabama to live near her sister, Louise. No children were born to her.”

Elva Louise Atkinson, daughter of Eugene “Chub” Atkinson and Elva Baker Anderson, was born June 6, 1923 at Sandlake. Her niece, Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour wrote of her life:

“Louise Atkinson was adventuresome. During WWII she worked at a military base in Alaska. She was married to a southern boy, Pelham Woffard, and they lived in Birmingham, even after Pelham’s death. Pelham was a railroad worker, and his work frequently took him away from home. The couple never had any children, though Pelham did have some from a previous marriage.”

Grace Eugenia Atkinson, daughter of Eugene “Chub” Atkinson and Elva Baker Anderson, was born September 21, 1926 at Sandlake. Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Chaney Farvour wrote of her parents:

“Grace Atkinson, while in high school, went to live with her sister Sarah in Ontario and again when Sarah moved to Oakland. While there Grace met a handsome sailor from Longview, Washington named Francis Earl Chaney. Grace quit school, and they were married in Ontario on Valentine Day, 1944. With their first child on the way, Francis and Grace moved to Kelso, Washington. Here, just across the river from Longview where Francis grew up, the pregnant Grace would go back to complete high school. She eventually graduated from Kelso High, the same school that several of her grandchildren would graduate from in later years.

Francis Chaney was born in Kansas on New Year’s Eve, 1924. He was the son of David Earl Chaney [1904-1974] and Susan Jane Goodfellow Chaney [NY, 1904-1990]. His grandparents were and Jacob Chaney and Rachel Ann Chaney. Earlier ancestors were Charles Ulysses Chaney and Rosa Flicker Chaney. Betty Chaney, sister to Francis Chaney, while researching the history of the Chaney family, discovered that the actor, Lon Chaney, Jr. was a kinsman.”

David Earl Chaney and Susan Jane Goodfellow Chaney were the parents of six children: Francis Earl, Erma Jean Morgan, Rose LaVonne ‘Bonnie’ Easley, Betty Skidmore, Carole ‘Teddy’ Webb, and Beverly Farvour.

During the course of their marriage Francis and Grace Chaney lived where the Navy took them–San Pedro, California, and Seattle, Washington mainly. Francis would eventually make a career of the Navy, but did a few stints on the outside, during these times the family lived in Longview and Winlock, Washington. In Winlock they worked for a chicken farmer while Ginny started kindergarten. While Francis was stationed overseas, serving in WWII, Korea, and eventually Vietnam, Grace came ‘home’ to Sandlake to live.

“Following in her mother’s footsteps, Becky Chaney moved away from home in her senior year to live with a cousin in Longview, Washington. There she met the brother-in-law of her aunt, Bev Chaney Farvour. Becky was married to Albert E. Farvour, Jr. in 1974. He was born July 2, 1947 to Albert E. Farvour and Edna Mae Bolden Farvour.

Edna Mae Bolden Farvour was the daughter of Everett Bolden and Bessie Sexton Farvour. It is believed that Edna may be of Melungeon descent; her brother, Doug, was once told when inquiring about his Bolden heritage that the family was, “Dutch, German, and none of your business!”

About the time of their marriage, Albert E. Farvour, Jr. began working at Reynolds Metals in Longview, where he has remained ever since. Becky began college, but it was interrupted by the birth of their first son. It took 10 years but she finally achieved her AA degree in 1985, then went on for her BA degree from Evergreen College in 1987, teaching credentials from Portland State University in 1990, and MALS degree from Reed College in Portland in 1993. She currently works as a substitute teacher for the Kelso School District. They have lived in Kelso, on the same spot as Al’s folks originally lived when they came to Washington, since early in their marriage.
